This car belongs to a client that I have worked for on several occasions in the past. As soon as he purchased this 2009 Ferrari F430, he knew it needed some love by a professional. The car had some RIDS, light swirls and hologramming from a previous amateur detailer. It also had white wax residue in several locations on the car. The owner opted for my "Presidential" Detail Package to ensure the car was brought up to the standards a Ferrari like this should be at.
Wax Residue From Previous Detailer
This car gets driven pretty hard, creating a good layer of brake dust on the wheels.
The tires were sprayed with Meguairs APC.
The inner fenders got the same treatment and scrubbed.
The wheels were sprayed with P21S and agitated to remove all brake dust and road grime.
And Dried using a Guzzler Waffle Weave Towel.
Swissvax Wheel Wax was applied to each of the wheels for protection.
The engine only need a light cleaning and was treated with 303 AeroSpace Protectant.
I then began prepping for the polishing step, removing the license plate so that I could properly clean and polish the rear bumper.
The left over wax residue was removed from all crevices using IPA and a cue tip.
