FinerDetails supports Antel Racing

June 25th, 2010 Comments off

More to come on this work as the year continues, some initial pics here after some preparation work at the Antel Racing Workshop at Silverstone.

Formula Renault BARC Overview

The BARC Championship has firmly established itself as one of the best value for money single seater series in the world, and provides drivers with a fantastic stepping stone to its National and International counterparts, such as Formula Renault U.K, N.E.C and Eurocup.

Racing will be in identical cars to that used in the 2009 Renault U.K. Championship, with the exception of a slight reduction in power to reduce costs. Being able to compete in these cars against a large grid of very competitive drivers, at less than half the cost of any other Formula Renault Championship, is the main reason for the overwhelming popularity of BARC.

Antel approached me with regards to helping them to maintain their race cars and the paintwork which has been completed by the Same painter who paints the F1 Red Bull and Torro Rosso Cars.  A eye catching design, with the black containing a rainbow flake!!!

As you would expect, being race cars, the paintwork was of an excellent quality, and applied at an expected level to ensure weight is kept at a minimum – its dam thin!!!

Here are some pics to help explain:




and out on the track:


I’ll add more pics etc once a go to watch the cars on their next outing at Croft on 4th July

Audi A4 Cabriolet full detail with wheel refurbishment and Cabriolet roof treatment

June 16th, 2010 Comments off

The car was booked in after an inspection, and the list of work agreed was:
 – full swissvax detail including engine bay, interior, full exterior with machine polish.
 – clean and protection of the cabriolet roof
 – removal and refurbishment of the split rims – rims separated and painted throughout.

Not a small list, and certainly not a job for the faint hearted.

Some before pictures of the car:

washed and clayed as per normal detailing practices, then into the roof with ragg top cleaner:

and if you dont think the roof was showing the dirt enough, how’s this for an interior 50:50 picture?

wheels off and hubs done:

then some effort into the roof with the black reviver:

the after results with some lovely early morning shots in the unit and some outdoor pics – note the wheel caps will be painted later today :)

thank you for reading
