There are details…and then there are DETAILS. This beauty came to us from an owner in Gilbert,Arizona. After setting up a time to take a look at the car and the condition as well as get an idea of what all the owner wanted to have done…we came to the conclusion that this owner wanted well…everything.
On the list of services for this baby would be:
Full nose paint protection film aka “clear bra” (front clip, full hood, full fenders, mirrors and behind those fat rear wheels)
Full paint correction (removal of all swirls, scratches and paint defects)
CQuartz Finest paint coating (with 2 year warranty of course)
Full interior detail with CQuartz Fabric and CQuartz Leather coating application
CQuartz Dlux on exterior plastic
Full wheels pulled detail (wheels removed, decontaminated, coated front and back, wheel calipers coated and wheel wells detailed)
“DODGE” badging taken off of the back
This was lining up for one great detail…so, let the games begin
The FIRST THING we came across was pretty disturbing on a brand new Hellcat. Tons of glue behind the paper plates, this was fun to clean up.
Yup yup…gotta love that! Next up was to chemically decontaminate the paint of all bonded iron particles (rail dust, brake dust, fallout etc) All the purple you see is the chemical reacting to the iron particulates, safely dissolving them off of the paint.
Then of course, she was given a nice foam bath
Lastly we finished the decontamination process by clay barring the entire exterior – just incase anything was missed. In our case we use a decontaminate block (or sponge).
Next up, she was pulled into the garage where Dani and I would split up to tackle two tasks at once. I would begin working on removing these monster matte wheels to get them prepped for CQuartz Finest coating while she was busy doing an interior cleaning to prep for CQuartz Leather and CQuartz Fabric coatings.
Ah yes, thats how they should look!
Being that the seats were two different materials (part fabric part leather), she had to use the appropriate coating for each section. Its great having the interior coated while the car is NEW. It really helps to preserve the appearance and greatly reduces the risk of an accidental spill creating a bigger problem. Plus out in Arizona, having the extreme UV protection of the leather coating is always a smart thing to do. Not to mention clean up only requires a damp microfiber cloth.
Day one was quite long, but we accomplished a lot.
Thanks everyone for taking the time to read…hope you enjoyed as always.
