Prep - wheels, wheel wells, tires, decon, clay Adam's APC was used to clean up the tires as well we used Adam's All Purpose Cleaner to loosen up the salt and grime in the wheels wells. Sonax Full Effect Wheel Cleaner sprayed on wheels, once they set up, we make sure to use various brushes to ensure wheels are cleaned up well. Since we knew the car was on a boat for 3 months and sat in a lot for a few more we knew that there would be contaminants on the paint, we applied Auto Finesse Iron Out to assist in the decon stage, we did this prior to the wash and clay. Rinse and repeat - we saw more contaminants on the paint so we decided to repeat the process - still pulling fall out off the paint. Traditional 2 bucket wash And rinse and repeat the Auto Finesse Iron Out followed with some Stoner's Tarminator and Auto Finesse Obiltarate - we have found Obiltarate to be quicker and stronger. Auto Finesse Iron Out pulling contamination out of all the crevices Uber Yellow Poly Clay bar and Nanoskin Autoscrub Mitt were use in the decon process. Claying in tight spots Before shot of the rear bumper with rail dust, fall out, etc After Car prepped Polishing - there were a lot of imperfections on the paint, all in clusters on various parts of the car.
