Mark commissioned be to spruce up his Octavia after we had had a little play with getting some scuffs out of his door, ooh a while back now Anyway Mark dropped the car off on Tuesday and work was started Wednesday. First stages being to give it a through clean getting rid of all the built up wax in the nooks and crannies then strip off all wax on the trim and get some colour back to it. SO a few piccies to start off with what we have done so far on the SparkTavia;

So paintwork is a little tired and there is a buildup of wax around the exterior trim and badges. The trim itself is also starting to fade and has come into contact with wax. SO onto the engine bay;
SO first thing to do was to try and scrub up that trim getting rid of all the built up wax, for this I used a Autosmart Tardis, lots of it;
THis was then washed off and left to dry completely overnight to see if any remained. Whilst that was drying out I started on the engine bay first degreasing then steaming before applying some dressing

It's the cleanest I have ever seen one. Picked the car up today, excellent work from Lee. I can highly recommend him to anyone who wants their car looking it's best.
It's the best the car has looked science I have owned it. Even when I had just polished and waxed it it never looked this good. It's currently very shiny and has excellent depth to the colour
Just hope I can keep it looking this good. After a few tips from Lee I will be giving it a go.
