    Proton Gen.2 (56k, nononono)

    This is my first complete detail, took me about 5 hours for the interior and about 10 hours or more for the exterior(split across 3 days).

    well I'll start with the interior.

    Products/Tools Used :
    Meguiar's All Purpose Cleaner 10:1
    Meguiar's Gold Class Rich Leather Cleaner/Conditioner
    Meguiar's Triple Duty Brush
    Eagle One 20/20 Glass Cleaner

    The leather seats took the longest time, they were scrubbed down with APC and then wiped with a damp microfiber. Then conditioned when dry. The steering wheel, dashboard and everything vinyl was wiped with APC on a damp microfiber and teh followed by the clean side of the microfiber. The back of the door handles feels sticky and grimy, these areas got sprayed with APC and the scrubbed with meg's triple duty brush.

    Interior Pictures :

    After






    On to the exterior,

    Products/Tools Used :

    Meguiar's Gold Class Trim Detailer
    Turtlewax Platinum Ultra Gloss shampoo and conditioner
    Safe D-Greaser 4:1
    Random Orbital Polisher(PC/DA)
    #83 with w8006 polishing pad
    #80 with w8006 polishing pad
    NXT Tech Wax with w9006 finishing pad
    Turtlewax TireWax

    The hood of this car has bee re-sprayed, badly. I think there were runs in the clear coat, it's even not as reflective as the other parts of the car, which kinda ruins the whole picture . So the whole car has been gone over with 83 and 80, beneath the door handles and tight spots got rubbed with #80 on a microfiber.

    Things I wish I had :
    #4 heavy cut cleaner to polish out the watermarks on the windows
    #26 as a carnauba topper
    A rotary buffer and the skills to use it to make things faster!

    The column would be the thing that attatches the wheel to the dashbaord.

    Looks good though, dont need to worry about the looks of the hood... getting the most out of the paint thats there is what it is all about
