Overview: Now this was a lot of fun even on a occasionally drizzly Cumbrian day! A beautiful condition M5 with some tasteful and eye catching styling additions. A career advertising those gorgeous Quality Street Big Purple chocolates awaits!
The object of this custom detail was to enhance the shine of the paintwork and to apply some long-lasting protection. Shine was produced by hand using Dodo Pre-wax Cleanser (Micro-abrasive) and protection was courtesy of two of our favourite waxes; Raceglaze PTFE (very durable) and Britemax Vantage (very shiny).
Exterior: Custom (based on Protection Detail)
Interior: Flex Interior Valet
Protection: Raceglaze PTFE Wax + Britemax Vantage Wax
Cleansing process: Car hand-washed with Swissvax Car Bath and then rinsed. Paintwork clay-barred with Sonus Ultra-fine Clay (lubricated with VP Bling). Dodo Pre-wax Cleanser (Micro-abrasive) applied by hand to all panels then buffed off. Paintwork then wiped down with Envy Filler Killer, rinsed with water and re-dried. Wheels cleaned with Kleen Detail Brake Away. Exhaust tips de-tarred and then cleaned with Autofinesse Mercury Metal Polish and superfine steel wool followed by Meguiars NXT polish.
Protection process: Coat of Raceglaze PTFE Wax applied then buffed off. Coat of Britemax Vantage Wax applied and buffed off. Plastic trim treated with Angelwax Halo Wax. Wheels sealed with Nanolex Alloy Sealant. Tyres treated with Car Skin Matt Rubber tyre dressing.
