    I thought I'd share the pictures from this Evo X that was detailed a few months back, just before taking over the new workshop.

    This lancer was detailed for a local Evo and GTR specialist.

    The car is having one of their sticker packs fitted and the owner wanted the swirls and other little marks removed first.



    The car is pretty well kept, after the trip to Milton Keynes it had the usual wet weather dirt.

    The engine bay was the first port of call.

    A light pressure rinse, Auto Finesse Verso sprayed on, allowed to dwell and then agitated with various brushes. Then rinsed again at low pressure.

    Wheels, tyres and arches next.

    First the arches were cleaned out with Verso.

    Imperial applied to the wheels and tyres and worked in with a few brushes.

    Pressure rinsed and then Iron Out applied and allowed to brake down the iron fallout.

    Nooks and crannies next.

    The car then had it's pre-wash and wash process with ODK products. Tar removed with Tardis, fallout with Iron Out. Taken inside and clayed with Sonus Fine.

    On to the polishing stages. Some marks required 2 stages to remove fully, but the majority of the work was completed with a single set.



    All photos are after being panel wiped.

    You can see a little difference in gloss from the unpolished bonnet against the wing.

    A second panel wipe down and double check before wax.
