Another item of works carried out by Beau Technique. This time in the guise of a very nice Alfa Romeo Mito. I had been and quote this a while back and finally got the chance to get this little beauty looking much sharper. General condition of the paint wasnt horendous but never the less, there is always room for improvement. Enhancement detail and interiro deep clean was chosen and so here we are. Again, little in teh ways of in the thick of it shots other than a few random bits and after pics. Car on arrival...

Wheels prepped with Autosmart smartwheels ( new formulation ), Valetpro brushes and rinsed. Vehicle pre-soaked with Valetpro citrus pre-wash, rinsed then foamed with Autobright supasnowfoam. Rinsed then washed via 2 bucket method with Meguiars microfibre mitts and Valetpro concentrated car shampoo which im finding ace prior to any machine polishing work. Rinsed off and Autosmart tardis to remove traces of tar. Clayed with yellow poly clay and Meguiars last touch detailer as clay lube. Dryed using Autosmart waffle towels and Autosmart tango as drying aid.
Geoff once again cracked on with the interior sides of things using Meguiars all purpose cleaner, various brushes and towels and a good and concise vac on the interior which left this...

The paint was as described, relatively straight forward to work on. It was that indeed, so onward and upward cracking out Scholl S17+ and 3M yellow polishing pad. Results were quite good after one hit. Various areas were hit a couple of times and shown nice elements of correction once again.

From this...

Continuing round the whole car with the odd tweek here and there with Dodo Juice lime prime on 3M blue pad.
Subtle 50/50 and a shame to of not had bright sun all day as the claret flake in the metalic looked crazy.

Image

Protected with Swissvax onynx. glass cleaned and sealed as were wheels. arches dressed, doorshuts cleaned with Dodo Juice need for speed, exhaust with Britemax polish metal polish and 00 wire wool. Tyres were dressed with a test subject in the guise of Valetpro dionysus Tyre dressing which is due for relese very soon. Very nice. Little goes far and leaves an effective yet semi satin finish but does darken the tyre walls so they look real clean and fresh. Enough of the babble. Heres the finished article...
