Ford Focus RS – Swissvax Divine Detail

August 24th, 2010

This Ford Focus RS came to me for a Swissvax Divine Detail, taken over two days, wheels removed and two layers of Divine applied.

Some pictures of a very nicely kept car when it arrived:

As always, first task would be getting it washed.  As the wheels would be removed, I didn’t waste my time cleaning them on the car, just straight into bonnet, engine and shuts:

a good snowfoaming:

and brushing all panel gaps, badges, edges etc:

once washed, and rinsed, time to clay bar the car:

then another rinse down before drying it off:

and blowing out all the shuts, engine bay etc:

then with the car safely sat on its jacking points, and the nuts lossened, its up into the air to have all four wheels safely removed whilst the car sits stable on my lift:

wheels removed, kept in pairs and laid on rubber matting for their protection:

I then finsihed up the wheel arches:

before starting the intial clean on the alloy inners:

once all four inners were clean, then clay bar all four inners:

then start all over on the fronts:

and once complete, stood up ready to be fitted back on the car:

the hubs being coppered up prior to the alloys being fitted:

and the arches all dressed and ready to go:

caps and badges lined up and alloy locking nut all in line:

With the wheels sat tight, it was then time to start some paint correcting.  As this is a full detail with so many aspects, I have chosen to not take a correction picture for every panel of the car as I felt this would be inappropriate. 

holograms on white:

and gone:

and doing the spot pad work:

and top rear spoiler:

Once all refined, I then applied the first layer of Divine:

and with the car lifted to access all areas:

wheels waxed up:

and door shuts:

With everything done for day one, time to go home…..

Next morning, first job was to removed the first Divine layer which had been curing all night:

and the wheel wax too from inners and fronts:

then second layer applied:

last check of the arches and alloys

the chassis given a wipe over:

and the silencer box polished:

then windows inside and out:

interior dusting:

the underside of the bonnet waxed:

engine bay checked and sealed:

the boot or rear cargo area presented:

and the final interior:

and now for the exterior final pictures, both out and indoors with no lamps or camera tricks, just nice straight taking pictures for you 🙂
