Thread: New 'Car' Protection Detail - Candy White VW Amarok with Auto Finesse Desire

  1. #1

    New 'Car' Protection Detail - Candy White VW Amarok with Auto Finesse Desire

    This is the first Amarok I've seen detailed...

    This particular vehicle is finished in the lovely Candy White colour, and is only a couple of weeks old. I'd been speaking to its owner, Dave of BVR Automotive, for a few weeks about getting up to his place in Stoke, to make sure his Amarok is protected properly as early as possible in its life and that it will be easy for him to clean and maintain.

    I arrived bright and early this morning at 8:30...

    The Amarok itself was pretty clean and wearing its 18" Winter Wheels:

    Not too bad, but they point of the day was protection, and to remove any contamination from the paint.

    As ever, wheels first. Initially given a rinse with my pressure washer:

    Surfex HD used on wheels, tyres and arches:

    Agitated with various brushes:

    and rinsed...

    A few tar spots and iron/brake dust remained - these were to be dealt with later in the day...

    The Amarok was then snow foamed with Zaino Z7:

    Panel gaps, petrol cap, shuts and sills were agitated with Swissvax Detail Brush. The Rok was then rinsed, and hand washed with Auto Finesse Lather and CQuartz Mitt:

    Unfortunately I'm not 7' tall, so this was used to access the roof throughout the detail:

    After washing and rinsing, it was time to address the very evident fallout and tar present on the Candy White paintwork:

    Tar next with Tardis...

    The rear of the vehicle was opened up properly to ensure all areas were thoroughly cleaned:

    Next, the paintwork was cleaned with Auto Finesse Rejuvenate, 3M Yellow Waffle Pad and CYC DAS6 Pro DA Polisher.

    This was followed up with Auto Finesse Desire on the paintwork, along with Auto Finesse Crystal on the Glass and Finale as a final wipedown...

    I also cleaned and protected the OEM wheels, which will be going on in March, after Winter passes:

    The wheels were protected with Auto Finesse Mint Rims:

    Thanks to Dave for his superb hospitality and the amazing kebab! I'm looking forward to seeing the Amarok again in March when it's getting some GTechniq love. I'm also lucky enough to be resurrecting some life into Dave's Mrs's Octavia vRS very soon!

    Thanks for reading!

    Lovely vehicle and bloody brilliant job there mate.

    If I were you, I'd go post this exact same thing on Amarok Forum | VW Amarok | International and Australian Amarok | Aus Amarok Forum | 4x4 Amarok | Volkswagen Amarok Startline, Trendline, Highline (Say Dan sent you, they already know Dave / BVR, he's a sponsor there too) and I bet you get some business from it! Them lads on there really want to look after their 'roks and they're all brand new and it's the perfect time for it.

    Well done once again mate that's nice work there.
