    2008 Ford Expedition Detail

    This weekend I only had one detail since I had other things I had to complete. This is a new Expedition that needed to be clayed mainly on the horizontal surfaces. I then topped it with 2 coats of NXT wax. I need to finish my current NXT wax before I can buy the 2.0 version.

    AFTER

    Wheels cleaned up with Wheel brightener highly diluted & tires dressed with ASD

    After seeing the engine in this condition I just had to clean it. The customer did not request it but I just couldn't let it go in this condition. Cleaned with Safe D Greaser & dressed with the water based dressing.

    Only took 3.5 hours. It was nice for a change to finish a detail so quick and have a chance to enjoy the rest of the day.

    Very nice job!
    Wheel Brightener is one amazing product, it will pull out the dust and grime in seconds and even the calipers will look new (you can't really control not spraying over some parts of the caliper)

    Engine looks amazing, can you give us a more detailed explanation of that process?

    Nice work

    Great work on the Expedition. It looks great. The engine cleaned up very well. You were flying only 3.5 hours. Way to go.
    quality creates its own demand
