Apologies for no posts for a while, I have being run off my feet, so more posts to follow when I get the chance...
I had the pleasure of detailing this beauty for Mat, after doing his Focus RS /viewtopic.php?f=10&t=2753
and RS2000 /viewtopic.php?f=10&t=2795
which were both a pleasure to work on in such a nice work environment.
The Escort Cosworth in question, has had extensive work done by Mat himself, replacing everything to back to new condition.
It all started by polishing the last section of the exhaust for me, using Britemax metal polish via rotary... Before:
A small example of the work that Mat has put in...
First off, the interior was tackled, Mat being a little OCD like myself, removed the front seats... Before:
Certainly not bad at all, after a little George+ time...
Next the drivers seat was refurbished, not removing every crease, but making it look like the others in comparison... Befores:
Repair of a slight tear in the base
Other repairs of the cracking etc
Back in the car after recolouring and satin sealant applied (conditioning done at a later time)
Front plate removed ready for the new ones and ready for the detail process (Mat had extensively cleaned the car and had not been outside since!)
The car had had a 'traditional' machine polish after the car had being resprayed, prior to Mat buying it, so a few buffer trails and a little lack of clarity...
A little play to refine at this stage with S17+ (further finishing down afterwards)
After, including the rear lights
Other side, before and after
Boot lid before
Spoiler before and after
Roof area before
First area refined
Bonnet before, showing buffer trails
Before and after on the door pillar
Rear quarter before and after
Then onto the refinement stage
Forgot to say earlier on, the engine bay had being steam cleaned and dressed
And finally the finished shots wearing a layer of tough coat, followed by a bespoke 'nuba
Revive on trim, glass polished with dodo SN glass polish and clearly menthol, tires, CG G6 hypercoat
And onto the ramp to check everything is in order on the underside again....
