2007 Nissan X-Trail - Pre-sale Mobile Valeting

Hi All

This job was a pre-sale full valet on a 2007 Nissan X-Trail near Martock, Somerset.

So this was it on arrival:

http://i163.photobucket.com/albums/t306/cjclaydon/2007%20Nissan%20X-Trail/IMAG0639.jpg

http://i163.photobucket.com/albums/t306/cjclaydon/2007%20Nissan%20X-Trail/IMAG0640.jpg
http://i163.photobucket.com/albums/t306/cjclaydon/2007%20Nissan%20X-Trail/IMAG0642.jpg
http://i163.photobucket.com/albums/t306/cjclaydon/2007%20Nissan%20X-Trail/IMAG0641.jpg

So exterior was cleaned up with Britemax Grime Out, wheels with Concours CC Bling Blades @ 10:1 and ValetPro Blue Gel Wheel Cleaner for the stubborn bits. Once dry it was polished with Concours CC Perficio on a blue Hex pad on the DA. Once this was done, it was topped with Concours CC LiquidShield. Trim was dressed with an online supplier Wonder Multi Dressing or Concept Vista, tyres with an online supplier Long Life Rubber Dressing

Don't know if you can make out where the paintwork has been rubbed with a scouring pad:

And after a pass with Perficio:

So the afters:

And a now obligatory reflection shot:

Re: Mondeo ST220 - DMD Mobile Car Valeting Services

Oooooooo that looks just bootiful, stunning gloss on that mate. Silver can be a pain to get something back on, but that one is giving back in spades.

Loving that colour on an ST, keeps it a bit stealthy.

VW Golf GTD Full Valet by Shine My Ride

So I had a booking to carry out a full valet on a VW Golf in Burnham-On-Sea . I hadn't seen the vehicle beforehand, so was more than a little surprised when I pulled up to see this:
http://i163.photobucket.com/albums/t306/cjclaydon/55%20plate%20VW%20Golf%20GTD/IMAG1491_zps38dfafc3.jpg
http://i163.photobucket.com/albums/t306/cjclaydon/55%20plate%20VW%20Golf%20GTD/IMAG1490_zps3e616369.jpg
http://i163.photobucket.com/albums/t306/cjclaydon/55%20plate%20VW%20Golf%20GTD/IMAG1488_zps5abbce3a.jpg
http://i163.photobucket.com/albums/t306/cjclaydon/55%20plate%20VW%20Golf%20GTD/IMAG1487_zps9d65bb50.jpg
http://i163.photobucket.com/albums/t306/cjclaydon/55%20plate%20VW%20Golf%20GTD/IMAG1489_zps23c8500f.jpg

Forgot to take pics of the interior :oops: , but there was more dirt inside than on the outside. And the observant among you will have noted the GTD in the title, and the GTI front end, and R32 back end.

So once the exterior was fully clean, it was time to improve an already great looking car. Menz PO203S on a green hex pad on the DA seemed to deepen the colour a little bit. This was then topped with Klasse AIO. The Klasse was also used on the glass, cleaning it very effectively. Trim dressed with a Ceramic Protection Systems sample product, tyres with an online supplier Long Life Rubber Dressing. Exhausts polished with Meguiars NXT Metal Polish.

The interior was cleaned with ValetPro Interior APC, and plastics treated with Autosmart Pazzaz.

http://i163.photobucket.com/albums/t306/cjclaydon/55%20plate%20VW%20Golf%20GTD/IMAG1494_zpsbfa67eb4.jpg
http://i163.photobucket.com/albums/t306/cjclaydon/55%20plate%20VW%20Golf%20GTD/IMAG1495_zps01fc8a78.jpg
http://i163.photobucket.com/albums/t306/cjclaydon/55%20plate%20VW%20Golf%20GTD/IMAG1497_zps68423e91.jpg
http://i163.photobucket.com/albums/t306/cjclaydon/55%20plate%20VW%20Golf%20GTD/IMAG1496_zpsda52221a.jpg
http://i163.photobucket.com/albums/t306/cjclaydon/55%20plate%20VW%20Golf%20GTD/IMAG1498_zps9676d0ec.jpg

As this was 'just' a full valet, I hope you can see a difference. Comments and criticism welcome

Thanks for looking

59-plate Jaguar XF - Forgotten by dealer

Just a brief one from me.

We were contacted by the sales manager of a Jaguar dealership in Cornwall. While he had been away on a launch, the car had been delivered to the customer in Crewkerne, but it had not been valeted prior to delivery :shock: Needless to say the customer was very unhappy. So the dealer asked of we could go to the customer's house and carry out a full valet.

No befores, but the interior leather and surfaces were cleaned with a citrus cleaner. Carpets and mats cleaned with an online supplier Carpet Shampoo Extra in the George. Exterior nooks and crannies cleaned with citrus cleaner and brushes, wheels with an online supplier Brite Clean. Once the exterior was dry, it was polished with Ceramic Protection Systems Liquid Gold all-in-one polish. Trim dressed with Concept Vista, tyres with an online supplier Long Life Rubber Dressing.

Only a few afters, light was fading so phone camera struggled a bit

Pre-Sale Full Valet - 53-plate Toyota Corolla

Shine My Ride were called to a repeat customer near Wellington, Somerset . I have previously done the interior on this car, but they had now decided they wanted to sell the car, and wanted a full valet carried out.

So this is the car on arrival, a 53-plate Toyota Corolla T-Spirit with less than 41000 miles on the clock:
http://i163.photobucket.com/albums/t306/cjclaydon/53%20Toyota%20Corolla/IMAG1508_zps3b127750.jpg
http://i163.photobucket.com/albums/t306/cjclaydon/53%20Toyota%20Corolla/IMAG1509_zps99c3bdc8.jpg

http://i163.photobucket.com/albums/t306/cjclaydon/53%20Toyota%20Corolla/IMAG1513_zpsac0242e5.jpg

The interior wasn't too bad, a few mashed sweets here and there. I forgot to take afters of the interior though :oops:

Soooooo, exterior nooks and crannies dealt with using APC and detailing brushes. an online supplier Snow Foam left to soak, and then washed with an online supplier Auto Shine Shampoo and washmitt. Wheels were dealt with using ValetPro Blue Gel Wheel Cleaner.

Interior cleaned with an online supplier Carpet Shampoo Extra through the George, surfaces cleaned with ValetPro Interior APC.

Back to the exterior, the dull swirled paint was polished with a combination of Menz PO203S and POS100. Then a quick going over with Klasse AIO. Exterior trim dressed with Concept Vista, tyres with an online supplier Long Life Rubber Dressing.

So the afters:
http://i163.photobucket.com/albums/t306/cjclaydon/53%20Toyota%20Corolla/IMAG1515_zps20cc77eb.jpg

http://i163.photobucket.com/albums/t306/cjclaydon/53%20Toyota%20Corolla/IMAG1518_zps45713e8b.jpg
Customer was very happy, said he couldn't remember when it last looked that good.

A quick comparision:
