Detailing in the rain. Pre-washing)

Pre interior conditioning/detailing.

Example of debris removed from paint by Blue claybar. This is from a section of the hood 2" by 1'.
In order to safely clean the entire surface of this Mercedes 3 pieces of Blue claybar were required.

Allowing 1st coat of Menzerna Full Molecular Jacket sealant to cure.

2nd application of Chemical Guys 5050 Carnuaba wax.

Very overcast and rainy day. Even still the reflections are beautiful.

Winter 2010 Exterior Special with Leather Conditioning.

Extremely dirty vehicle, rims were unbelievable. Brake dust had cooked onto the metal.

It takes quite a while to perform such a detail.

Each layer of sealant and carnuaba wax needed to cure for at least 20-30 minutes.
4 coats.

The clay procedure took 1.5 hours alone because of the enormous amount of debris on the paint.
It was critical to pick out the contaminants on the clay and fold it up to 2 times,
then replace it with a fresh piece.
3 portions of clay in all.

 

Even in the rain and being overcast, the result is exceptional.
