    2010 Ford Edge DETAILED

    This Edge belongs to the same customer as the Cadillac CTS I worked on last week. The owner bought this one about a month ago and it was in great shape obviously being that it is new. It just needed to be refreshed but upon closer inspection I noticed a whole lotta of "Wax in the Crax". On with the pics.

    Passenger side door mirror














    Well let's just say there was alot more.
    This is up on the roof area. In order to remove this wax residue I had to use some M205 with a Meguiars applicator pad. That still took some elbow grease to take off but it worked.

    After (This was a test spot I worked on as I had to continue from the top front to the rear of the vehicle)




    All done


    Here is the vehicle before


    After


    Before


    After


    With NXT 2.0


    Previous wax residue removed


    I like how the wheel shines onto the cement. What appears to be more wax in the crax in the door seam is a plastic panel inside near the door hinge and above that is just a sun burst.







    Process:
    - Washed with Gold Class
    - Tires cleaned with APC and dressed with ASD along with the wheel wells.
    - The wax residue removed with a Meguiars brush and some Last Touch.
    APC on certain areas.
    - Clayed (Paint had mild bonded contaminants)
    - Applied NXT 2.0
    Interior was wiped down with Quick Interior Detailer and vaccumed.
    Time: 5 hours 10 minutes

    Even though the Edge didn't look bad by claying and adding wax really refreshed the paints look and feel. I did spend quite some time cleaning up the wax residue. When ever I thought I had taken care of it I would notice more. The customer was quite happy and did mention that it looks better than when he bought it. So my job was done here.

    Excellent work Jesse

    I think you have become addicted to NXT 2.0, and I can definitly see why since the end result you achieved is simply amazing!!!

    Tell the owner he needs to get rid of all that dealer ****.
