Azure Grey Suzuki Swift

An exterior intermediate and full interior detail on a Suzuki Swift in Azure Grey.

 

Process started with detailing the interior where all plastic/vinyl surfaces and door jambs are cleaned with Meguiar’s All-Purpose cleaner(10:1), vents lightly scrubbed to remove dust from the edges, seats and carpets vacuumed, and then all wiped down with Meguiar’s Quik Interior Detailer for UV protection.

 

washing the wheel wells and tire using Meguiar’s Super Degreaser(4:1) and cleaning the wheels using Meguiar’s Wheel Brightener(4:1)

Then the car is soaked with Meguiar’s Hyper Wash to soften the dirt.

Rinsed off at high pressure and washed with the two bucket method using Meguiar’s Hyper Wash as shampoo.

After washing, my friend and Meguiar’s Malaysia forum member, slk helped me blow dried the cracks and crevices while I dried of the larger panels of the car using a Meguiar’s Water Magnet cloth.

 

Osren Tar Remover sprayed onto the front bumper, left to dwell and wiped off.

 

We then both clayed using Perma Glass No.2 clay and diluted Meguiar’s Shampoo Plus as lubricant. Here is him helping me out, thanks buddy!

Also a little history of the car, the paintwork has been fully detailed by Albert Low of ProDetailer (located in Kota Damansara). It’s been six months since and as you can see from below, the paint is still pretty glossy!

But the owner, who really loves his car is here to get rid of the light swirls caused by washing.

Menzerna 106FF on a Meguiar’s W-9006 Finishing Pad was used at 600 -> 1200 -> 900 -> 600 rpms was used.

Then Optimum Polish was used by hand to polish intricate areas like under the spoiler, painted areas around the number plates and side skirts.

Whole car is then pressure rinsed to get rid of polishing dust, dried and Meguiar’s #21 Synthetic Sealant applied using a Meguiar’s W-9006 Finishing Pad via Random Orbital Buffer. By this time the owner arrived and had to wait for me to:

 

  • Dress exterior plastic and rubber trim with Autoglym Bumper Care,
  • exhaust tailpipe polished with Meguiar’s NXT All Metal Polysh
  • Headlamps and tail lamps polished with PlastX by hand
  • Dressed wheel well plastics with Meguiar’s Hyper Dressing(2:1)
  • Dress tires with Meguiar’s All Season Dressing
  • Wheels and door jambs waxed with Meguiar’s #21 Synthetic Sealant
  • Interior glass cleaned with Meguiar’s Detailer line Glass Cleaner Concentrate(10:1)
  • Buff off M21
  • Apply Meguiar’s #16 Professional Paste Wax and buff off.

 

And finally done, many thanks to the owner for waiting so long. Here are the results.
