So what does Exterior Auto Detailing include?
Alloy Wheels: these are cleaned using specialist cleaners which de-grime and degrease – the alloy wheels are removed to get a deep thorough clean.
Tyres: the sharp blackness on tyres are re-enhanced using specific products
Hand Washing / Cleaning: your car will be deeply washed and cleaned bringing out its gleam
Over time the car’s paintwork will suffer swirls which are a bit like spider webbing and the odd scratch which can be caused by bad washing / drying techniques or even putting the car through the automatic car body wash. By using specialist washing and drying techniques such as road dirt and road salt to get the vehicle ready for the next stage.
Removal of tiny particles: these are removed by using a specialist Automotive Clay Bar which removes any impurities , tightly bonded dirt, traces of overspray and other residue such as Tree Sap, Bird Faeces , Tar or Environmental factors and this also removes existing waxes that don’t come off with normal washing. This also restores faded paint (eg; red paint that has gone slight pink) This then leaves a surface which is ready for the next stage.
Polish: We use a buffer machine which removes all fine damage on the paintwork which builds up over time or this is completed by hand depending on the state of the car’s paintwork. This brings back the deep shine.
Waxing / Sealant: This is a deep gloss sealant paint that protects the paintwork with a durable coat. This will repel future minor marks and is essential to ensure that your car looks good in future.
Final Gloss Polish: Using Specialist Carnuba Wax this will be a high shine and make the car to look like just bought from brand new, remember that shine? Well this is what you need to do the job
