It's been a while since I got the time to do a big detail, so I decided to surprise a friend that left his car a my place when he went away on a trip for a few days. Truth be told, I felt more sorry for his pregnant wife that has to put up with it! http://www.detailingworld.co.uk/forum/images/smilies/tongue.gif

The car in question is a Toyota Landcruiser 100 series, very rough looking, heavily scratched daily driver, used for bashing it's own tracks through the Australian outback on the weekends. Oh, it's also got 320,000kms on the clock too! The colour is a nice shade of oxidised white! http://www.detailingworld.co.uk/forum/images/smilies/laughing.gif

Hard to capture most stuff on this car in photo's, but hopefully you'll get the idea...

This is how the car presented itself. I don't think its been washed for a few years! http://www.detailingworld.co.uk/forum/images/smilies/tongue.gif

Oh no! Looks like a challenge has presented itself right here!

I jumped right in and gave it a good foaming with degreaser. You can see a ton of crap coming off the car!

Rear after foam. Still covered in crud!

Nice 50/50 when washing!

Side marks after washing. This is going to be fun removing!

http://i1110.photobucket.com/albums/h447/LexyISF/100%20series/IMG_3018Copy.jpg

Wolfs Decon Gel working away. I thought I would have got more of a reaction, but most of the crap was removed with the degreaser foam and wash stage.

New ArtDeShine poly clay

http://i1110.photobucket.com/albums/h447/LexyISF/100%20series/IMG_3060Copy.jpg


Nice colour Alfred, does it match your handbag?!?! http://www.detailingworld.co.uk/forum/images/smilies/laughing.gif

I first thought ÿep, another cheap chinese clay, looks the same as some clay I've already got..... But this one certainly feels different, and a bit firmer to the soft chinese clay I got.

http://i1110.photobucket.com/albums/h447/LexyISF/100%20series/IMG_3061Copy.jpg


Im tested the clay out with QD's and water, it seemed to work best with just a wet surface from water. It didn't stick or grab the paint either, which is a welcomed relief.

http://i1110.photobucket.com/albums/h447/LexyISF/100%20series/IMG_3062Copy.jpg

http://i1110.photobucket.com/albums/h447/LexyISF/100%20series/IMG_3068Copy.jpg


The clay easily removed the oxidation off the paint. Best thing with this new type of clay, this crap just washes off! Not too soft, not too hard, just right! http://www.detailingworld.co.uk/forum/images/smilies/thumb.gif

http://i1110.photobucket.com/albums/h447/LexyISF/100%20series/IMG_3070Copy.jpg


I really like it! Not bad at all! Best use with just water is a cost saving bonus! http://www.detailingworld.co.uk/forum/images/smilies/thumb.gif

Apparently, if you drop the clay, you can wash the dirt off and continue using it! http://www.detailingworld.co.uk/forum/images/smilies/shocked.gif Crap just washes off the clay, but no, i didn't try it. I'll certainly have to test this out on a scrap panel in the future! http://www.detailingworld.co.uk/forum/images/smilies/thumb.gif


Time to remove those horrible marks from down the side of the car.

For this, I tried out an Osren velvet pad. It's got the same cut as about 3000 grit sand paper, but finished very smooth, flat, and clear! Compounding to 95% LSP ready in one step! http://www.detailingworld.co.uk/forum/images/smilies/shocked.gif

http://i1110.photobucket.com/albums/h447/LexyISF/100%20series/IMG_3037Copy.jpg

http://i1110.photobucket.com/albums/h447/LexyISF/100%20series/IMG_3038Copy.jpg


I chose to use Meguiars Ultimate Compound with the Osren Pad on my trusty Flex rotary. I love this compound, it's zero dust, very easy to use, and gets an awesome finish too! It also smells like cinnamon! http://www.detailingworld.co.uk/forum/images/smilies/tongue.gif

http://i1110.photobucket.com/albums/h447/LexyISF/100%20series/IMG_3073Copy.jpg


Working away nicely! Note the big improvement in colour even with my crappy pics!

Mark gone from one door!

http://i1110.photobucket.com/albums/h447/LexyISF/100%20series/IMG_3076Copy.jpg


I continued on polishing out the car, and tried a few different combos too. I got given one of these new compounding pads to try too, much nicer to use than regular wool pads! No linting!

http://i1110.photobucket.com/albums/h447/LexyISF/100%20series/IMG_3022Copy.jpg


After compounding and testing out a few heavy cut combos, I tested out a few finishing combos and settled on HD Uno on a 3M blue pad. Impressive multi use polish this one! http://www.detailingworld.co.uk/forum/images/smilies/thumb.gif

A few fun 50/50's and before & afters! http://www.detailingworld.co.uk/forum/images/smilies/tongue.gif

Note the heavy scratching down the side! The whole car was like this!

Tyres were treated to ArtDeShine Hydrophobic Tyre Coat. A little oges a long way with this product, which is a good thing with these big tyres! http://www.detailingworld.co.uk/forum/images/smilies/tongue.gif

This was what the tyres looked like after the first wash and degreasing. They were degreased and scrubed again to get them back to black!

http://i1110.photobucket.com/albums/h447/LexyISF/100%20series/IMG_3203Copy.jpg


On to the interior. What a mess!!! http://www.detailingworld.co.uk/forum/images/smilies/shocked.gif

I ended up removing all the rubbish, giving the seats and floor a vacuum, then cleaning it up with a wash mit and soapy water! The windows were cleaned with 100% IPA too! (non-tint windows!)

http://i1110.photobucket.com/albums/h447/LexyISF/100%20series/IMG_3117Copy.jpg


The doors were next. The handles were covered in a sticky mess. I gave the doors a liberal spray with APC, then an agitation with a nail brush. They came up much better!

Now onto the coating! http://www.detailingworld.co.uk/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif

This is the ArtDeShine 2-stage coating. It's designed to be safe and very easy to use for the home detailer, and that it certainly is!! http://www.detailingworld.co.uk/forum/images/smilies/thumb.gif

More info found here: http://www.detailingworld.co.uk/foru...d.php?t=287642 (http://www.detailingworld.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?t=287642)

Prep was another wash to remove all polish residue, a wipe down with panel wipe, then a wipe down with Eraser.

http://i1110.photobucket.com/albums/h447/LexyISF/100%20series/IMG_3092Copy.jpg

http://i1110.photobucket.com/albums/h447/LexyISF/100%20series/IMG_3098Copy.jpg


Base coat is very nice to use. It feels similar to other quartz coatings I've used, which is a good thing. Apply around the panel, wait 5 minutes, and the residue buffs off very easily. Wait 2hrs, then apply the top coat! http://www.detailingworld.co.uk/forum/images/smilies/thumb.gif

http://i1110.photobucket.com/albums/h447/LexyISF/100%20series/IMG_3099Copy.jpg


Top coat is litterally wipe on wipe off! It couldn't be easier!

Haze from base coat.

All finished! WOW! Nice gloss! http://www.detailingworld.co.uk/forum/images/smilies/argie.gif

A few outside shots. Hard to capture the 'look' on white outside, but it certainly looks nice!
