Default Detailer's Domain: ES300 - Spring Clean Up

This ES300 needed mostly a thorough cleaning. Customer wanted to a shine back on the car. As well remove all the sap and tar that was embedded in the paint. This ES has no swirls or deep scratches enabling us to use Power Finish to achieve the results we needed. Einszett Glanz was used to get the metallic flake to pop!

Iron Cut goes to work






3m adhesive remover was used to clean up various sap and tar (Derek spent about 1 hour removing all these from various places on the car)





The car appeared to be cleaned up but the clay bar picked up everything that the Iron Cut did not.


Sorry no pics of Power Finish in action.
