UltimateShine - Opel Astra OPC
Hi Everyone,

I received this car on Wednesday evening for a full detail.
I didnt waste time getting straight into things but at least this time the new camera was in the back of my mind and I remembered to take a few before snaps.

The car got a wash treatment using Hyper Wash, APC, Meguiars Wash Mitt and Meguiars Boars Hari brushes.
Wheels got treatment from Meguiars Wheel Brightener and Daytona Speed Master wheel brush with a touch of APC as well.

Gave the Engine bay a nice wipe down with APC and MF Cloth. Polished up the Chrome bits with Meguiars Mag and Aluminium polish.

After working till 3am in the morning I eventually just couldnt stay awake anymore and retired to bed... Up again at 6am ... Buffed off the Wolfgang Deep Gloss Sealant and took her out to see...

So back into the Garage and another layer of Sealant was applied... Approx 6 hours had passed since the 1st layer was put on... And then i tackled the Interior. Gave the mats a good wash with APC and left out to dry while I cleaned the Interior with APC and MF cloth.
Dressing used was the new Meguiars Ultimate Protectant. Very nice product I was well impressed.

Waxed the Rims using the Blackfire Midnight Sun paste Wax... Really worked wonders I thought

About 15h00 now and time to buff the exterior again...

And then onto my final touches and final pics of the day at around 17h00

All in all a very rewarding Detail and I enjoyed working on this car very much. I think the Silver really turned out good.
Cheers.

Nice work Vincent!

What was your process on the CF bits?

Onyx I basically did the CF bits by hand coz of the many curves and so on making it hard to get to it with the Machine.

RE: UltimateShine - Opel Astra OPC
Nice work, although those seats in the OPC look the worst! Is that dressing you put on to make it shine like that?

I think the picture makes it seem more shiny than the actual end result.
I found with Smart Wax leather you need to give it some time to absorb into the leather then just give it a wipe with a MF Cloth after 10 mins or so.
