2014 Fiesta ST in Ingot Silver

Posted on May 14, 2014 by Travis Kent

Here is a write-up from a new car detail & protection I performed on a Fiesta ST
The car was brought to me with just over 250 miles on it.
-After foaming the tires & fender wells were cleaned with Meguiar's Super Degreaser diluted 4:1 followed by POLISHANGEL® Mint+ Wheel Cleaner on the wheel faces & barrels.
-The rest of the vehicle was then washed with 3oz. of Meg’s Hyper Wash (in each bucket) and blown dried prior to decontamination.
The car was then rinsed again, towel dried with high-quality microfiber drying towels, and then blown dry. The final air drying with the Master Blaster is mainly to remove water from all the jambs, cracks seems, behind the door handles... etc. Then the car was wiped down with Spies Hecker 7010 Panel Wipe to leave a perfectly clean surface ready for polishing with POLISHANGEL® INVINCIBLE | 9H PRIMER
Here is the test spot with Primer. While I felt this silver was in decent condition from the dealership there was still some gloss & clarity to be extracted.
