New Car Detail

Buying or leasing a new car? Offered an expensive "Lifetime paint protection" option at the dealerships?

Unfortunately these "lifetime" products aren't what there made out to be.

1. They are ridiculously overpriced inferior quality products that cost only a few pounds and that only last a few months at best.

2. They aren't applied to a clean surface to bond properly, the vehicle is just washed and dried but not             decontaminated.

3. The staff mainly don't have the knowledge needed to prepare a vehicle and if they do, they aren't         allowed to take the time needed to prepare the paint and apply the product.

Contact us to arrange this detail at the dealership prior to pick, tell them not to wash the car, as they will damage your new paint!

You may think your vehicles paint is tough and resists the elements, but without a form of surface protection it will soon look dull, tired and unappealing. This is more than a simple wash and polish/wax most people think will suffice. It involves a thorough decontamination of your vehicles surfaces, paint, glass, rubbers and plastics followed by machine polishing to the paint and a high quality paint protection product.


This decontamination is the basis for every detail as it prepares the paint for polishing by stripping away all contamination to leave a bare surface to polish then protect. I like to use an example: Just as you would not expect a skilled decorator to just paint over a dirty, old flaking surface, as before long your new paint would be flaking off, it would need to be prepared first.


  1. Multi stage wash, including pre wash snow foam to soften all the dirt on the surface and to remove a layer of grime, citrus pre wash,  pressure wash rinse, 2 bucket wash with grit guards and a pure no wax shampoo and lambs wool mitt.

  2. Wheels cleaned ( face and inner rim if accessible) with safe non acid wheel cleaners and various brushes and mitts with separate bucket with grit guard.

  3. Vehicle rinsed and dried with plush microfiber towels.

  4. Multi stage decontamination consisting of, a solvent to remove road tar, tree sap and other organic contaminants, the removal of fall out by chemical means and by clay bar. This will remove tiny particles of iron, such as brake dust amongst other things embedded in your vehicles paint and other surfaces to leave a silky smooth, glass like finish. Vehicle is washed and dried between each stage.

  5. Painted surfaces machine polished with a fine finishing polish to remove light swirl and marks 

  6. 2 coats of a premium Carnuaba wax or paint sealant that can last 6 months.

  7. Alloy wheels protected with a nano sealant.

  8. Chrome and exhausts polished and protected.

  9. Plastic trim and tyres dressed.

  10. Exterior windows polished and coated with a rain repellent.

  11. Interior vacuum, surface & glass clean, leather or fabric seats protected with a coating

  12. Final inspection.



N.B. A garage/covered area would be ideal to work in, but not always necessary, for this detail.
