Subaru STI with Viking Shield & Blue Xilion

Posted on May 14, 2014 by Travis Kent

The following detail was performed on a 2005 World Rally Blue Subaru STI. 
The car puts out 340hp & 340tq to the wheels at 18psi.
Paint was protected with Viking Shield & Blue Xilion.
The first thing after the wash was to address the engine bay. Metal was polished with Palladium and the rest of the engine bay was cleaned & dressed with Engine
When polishing began, I first addressed the orange peel in the trunk and hood scoop with the CarPro Denim Orange Peeling pads and PolishAngel Master Compound.
The rest of the paint was in fairly good shape with just a few things to address
