This car has been talked about for some months now between me and the owner.
There was delays on the building of these specific vehicles which caused a knock on effect over months but, finally the car had arrived and was needing some love and protection.
A clay / cleanse and sealant routine by Beau Technique was on the cards with a little work on the interior and engine compartment and remove the dealer number plates for some pressed metal plates from dubmeister.
On with the before pictures...

Due to the weather, finding an appropriate time to schedule the car in etc Amir had to use it as it was hence the amount of build up on the wheels and exterior in general.
The usual preperation process was endured and started from the wheels and tyres which were cleaned with Autosmart smartwheels and various brushes...

Image

Image

Image

These were rinsed throughly to ensure all grime and wheel cleaner was entirely removed.
Vehicle was then snowfoamed with a mixture of Autobrite direct supa snowfoam and Meguiars all purpose cleaner to really loosen the grime and strip any forms of dealer polishes from the painted surfaces...

Image

This was left to dwell for a few minutes to ensure the cleaner would really loosen the road grime.
Whilst dwelling all relevant knooks and crannies were cleaned / agitated with a soft natural hair brush...

Image

Image

This was then rinsed throughly as to not drag any hasrh dirt across the paint during the washing stage.
Wheel arches / engine bay and door shuts were all treated to Meguiars super degreaser and aggitated with various brushes prior to a thorough rinse off...

Image

Image

Once all was rinsed it was time for the wash which consisted of 2 bucket wash with grit gaurds, Valetpro posiedons carnauba wash shampoo and soft non silicone based Z sponge...

Image

Once rinsed again it was time to apply Autosmart tardis tar remover and left to do its trickery for a few seconds before wiping off with a microfibre towel...

Image

Tardis was also used to remove the glue which held the original number plates on.
Vehicle was rinsed again then given claybar treatement with dodo juice supernatural clay and dodo juice born slippy clay lube.
Very minimal amounts of contamination on the paint which was something new to me as working on Volkswagon cars years ago, so many were covered in industrial fallout...

Image

Vehicle was rinsed a final time then dried with Autosmart waffle towel and Autosmart tango as drying aid then a final blow dry with a warm air dryer to get all water out of awkard areas...

Image

At this point I moved onto the interior which in all fairness was very tidy other than a few dusty areas and various bits on the carpets.
Whole interior was vacuumed and cleaned with Meguiars all purpose cleaner, all knooks and crannies were brushed with Meguiars sidelock detail brush.
Inteior glass was cleaned with a waffle towel and Meguiars glass cleaner and fabric gaurd applied...

Image

Image

Image

Image

Doorshuts were cleaned with dodo juice need for speed cleaner wax.
Time to turn the attention back to the exterior of the car.
Engine compartment was dressed with Zaino Z16 and wiped with a microfibre towel.
Various external trim was dressed with Autosmart trim wizzard, arches were dressed with Autosmart highstyle, tyres dressed with Zaino Z16, extrerior glass was cleaned and sealed with Permanon glass cleaner and sealant AIO, wheels sealed with smartwax rimwax, these recieved another coat of spray sealant to ensure they were well protected.
Exhausts were cleaned with Meguiars NXT metal polish and 00 wire wool then spray sealed.
Vehicles paint received Poorboys world white diamond glaze then topped off with Collinite 476s which is a very durable paste wax come sealant last step product ( LSP ).
New pressed metal plates from dubmeister were fitted ( number plate removed for customer confidentiality purposes )

And now for some after shots for your admiration...

Cracking little car and by the sounds of things a nippy and nimble one at that...

This is true, The new Polo in fact is the same size as a MK1 Golf (As I was told by VW)

Great finish on the Polo :cool:

It looks like a Brodit Proclip mounting bracket if I understood your question correctly.
