2010 Ferrari California – Enhancement Detail

This Ferrari California was booked in for an Enhancement Detail (new car detail)

The car gets used regularly and hasn’t seen a wash in two weeks, so there was a fair bit of traffic film and bug splatter, there was also a fair few swirl marks showing in the afternoon sunlight.

The car on arrival…

 

APC was sprayed on all lower parts, including wheels

Then rinsed

Full car then snow foamed…

The tailpipes and all other fine details were then cleaned with a soft detailing brush.

 

Wheels then cleaned with soft detailing brushes, Ez detail brush to clean the backs of the wheels, and a safe wheel cleaner…

The full car was then bathed using a Sheepskin mitt and two buckets…

Then rinsed and clayed…

Tar remover sprayed onto wheels, then removed with a microfibre cloth…

one of the few tar spots I could find…

With the car fully washed, clayed and dried, it was time to assess the condition of the paintwork…

Swirl marks…

Being an Enhance and Protect detail, a single stage of machine polishing is carried out to enhance the gloss of the paintwork, this will in many cases also remove light marring in the paint finish, this knocked back the majority of swirl marks, finishing down nicely allowing the metal flake to “pop” through!.

50/50

Full panel polished…

 

After polishing the paintwork was treated to a durable paint sealant, the wheels were also sealed, any exterior trim dressed, which also helps protect against fading, glass cleaned, tyres dressed, and exhaust tips polished and sealed…

460bhp 4.3 V8.

The finished article, I’ll let the pictures do the talking :thumb:
