Detailed Grandma's Car

Recommended Posts

My grandma recently (September) purchased a new car, a 2017 Chevy Cruze Hatchback.  I told her when she bought it that I would detail it for her before winter, the one thing I've learned is that Grandma's don't forget haha!  I went and picked it up from her on Sunday and brought it back to her today.  I just wanted to share a few before and after pics along with making some mention as to the products I used for the detail.  I definitely didn't take enough before pictures, but that always seems to be the case........

Products Used:

Adam's All Purpose Cleaner - Used for wheels, tires, and inner fenders (Also used Adam's Wheel Brush and Adam's Tire Brush)

Adam's Strip Wash - Probably overkill for a car that had never been washed or waxed before, but I wanted to start with a clean slate.

Adam's Clay Bar - All painted surfaces, and front windshield

Adam's VRT - Tires, plastic trim, engine compartment, grille

Adam's In & Out Spray - Engine Compartment and Grille

Adam's Invisible Under Carriage Spray - Inner Fenders

Adam's Paint Sealant - All Painted Surfaces

Adam's Detail Spray (during the drying process, during the clay bar process, and used on the touch screen on the interior to prevent / cut down on smudges)

Adam's Glass Cleaner

Adam's Glass Sealant - Front Windshield

Adam's Brilliant Glaze - Inside and outside of all glass (done after glass sealant on front windshield)

Adam's Interior Detailer 

Adam's Leather Conditioner - Console

Adam's Odor Neutralizer

Plenty of microfiber towels and applicator pads

Always  nice to see a vehicle cleaned up better than when delivered. I recently cleaned up a brand new Jaguar F-Type SVR that was scratched all over and had residue from shipping wrap and the owner was stunned to see what a difference there was

Samuel,

     Thank you for the compliment, I'd love to see pictures of the Jaguar if you've got before / afters.

Unfortunately I didn't get any pics of the damage that was left but it had some really bad water spots on the rear fenders by the doors, on the carbon spoiler (which I was nervous to touch)

and had lots of residue left over from the protective film for shipping. The hood had a scratch from who knows what and one of the guys tried to clean it up and made it worse. The owner is the service director for a buick/gmc dealer and let one of his detail guys try to buff it out.
