So I haven't got the chance to post alot recently, and not its time to share with you guys the latest thing I've done to my car, long story short, its the cleanest black Mustang in Dubai.. I will keep you with the pics and comments.

Started decontaminating using 3 steps

1- White spirit
2- Iron X
3- Megs Clay

and I followed it with cleaning the engine bay using

1- water, brush, IPA, towel
2- and Final finish with 303 Aerospace (Love this product!)

I did 3 step paint correction using Flex DA

1- M105
2- M205
3- Chemical Guys Glozz Works

LSP

1- Chemical Guys Celeste paste wax (awesome product!)

Tires were cleaned and I used

1- Megs tire-gel

I will leave you with the pictures now, any comments and feedback are welcome

The car before the project









The engine bay isn't that bad, but yes it is bad! lol





Rinsed the engine with water












And it snows in Dubai ;)





wheels and paint cleaned using Fairy detergent, because its strong, and ofcourse different mits and buckets lol

Wheels bucket



white spirit and sponge treatment



Wonder wheels for rims, it did a nice job I expected better though



Irox X



Bleed!!



Clay and Fairy mixed with water for lubricant



The Clay is surprisingly clean, thanks for the steps I followed and I always wash the car myself





Now ready for dry and correction, see how water sits on the paint





Swirls







The correction kit, IPA is for wiping down after each step











After the first go





Then DA with M205







Glozz works











The holy Celeste




Thanks for watching ;)

Looking alot better man, glad you dont let that other guy wash your car everyday anymore!

Next time, follow up with a final polish instead of a glaze, youll take your gloss and clarity to the best level. Glazes will effect the longevity of your wax in a negative way and its really not needed if you are going to correct the paint anyway.

Im a menzerna guy, i do like HD polish as well.

Menzerna SF4500
Menzerna SF4000
HD polish
Scholls s40 - this is probably the "best" option, and they are based out of the UK so it should be easy for you to get a hold of. I have a bottle, just havent tried it yet.

LOVE your F14's I really want them but little to much for me gonna end up with the Charcoal AMR wheels
They are awesome, man, everyone stares at them in Dubai lol

Sweet ride! Amazing work. Is that a parking garage your detailing in??
Yup, I am a lucky bastard, in the basement of my building, allowed only to practice my hobby on Friday

get Scholls s40 if you can. Its the "best"- its more expensive by far, but judging by your wheel choice, car, and place of residence, something tells me that wont bother you so much lol.

My next pick would be Menzerna SF4000 or 4500.

Nice work man I do agree on finishing it down with a finer polish than M205 especially on your black 5.0, something like S40, SF 4500 or 3M Ultrafina will really amp up the clarity and depth of the clear.

You should try Scholl Concepts S40 out, it works really well you won't be disappointed with the final look. I have been using it for over a year now and I have to say that I don't see myself using anything else for a while, unless it can beat the look that S40 gives me. Which is going to be a hard feat for other manufactures to do. From what I have seen the Rupes Diamond Ultra fine gel polish is suppose to be top notch as well but I have yet to try it out.

I already have a bottle of S40, just havent had the chance to try it out yet :yes lol

I suspect it to be really good. But for the price i dont see me switching from Menzerna anytime soon.
