Auto Finesse -VS- Aston Martin DBS

This car is part of one of our regular client collection, you may well remember the correction detail
we carried out on it a year or so ago, this time we are back to carry out an enhancement detail to
prep it up for sale, its copped a few unfortunate stealer washes since we last saw it and they must
have washed it whilst hot and left it wet, as it had a few water etching marks (we have very hard
water down this way), anyway enough chit chat enjoy the pics:

First job wash the wash stage:

Smart wheels
G101
Dodo BTBM
Bilt Hamber Auto Foam
Tardis
3m (Blue) clay

Not forgetting our prototype Dodo Sponges (yep we are still raving about them)













Air dried and got back in doors as soon as pos (to cold to take to many pics out there with wet hands








A selection of the defects we had to deal with:




















After a few tests we settled on S17 on a Megs polishing pad for the cutting and
Menz 85RD for refinement (on DA)










A fair bit better:





Refined and much better:








For the LSP it was to be the wax of champions Super natural, 2 coats of inc shuts:










Wheels sealed with another top secret product super spray sealant, tyres dressed
with megs endurance gel, arched dressed with AS finish:






Tail pipes polished with brite max, windows cleaned, interior given a light freshen up
(was already in fairly good order) and bobs your uncle:
































As always thanks for looking and any comments or questions are are welcome
