Light Correction Detail - Ultra Blue RenaultSport Megane R26 - Black Label!!



  Megane R26
This was a hard one - I had quite severe food poisoning coming on during the day without realising but luckily unlike a lot of RenaultSports the paint wasn't too tricky and was correcting very well. Luckily I also had some help on hand - the owner was keen to learn and helped with a few panels along with MCC Milly and MCC Greg who I have been training up to help me for a number of months now.


On to the detail…


A few before pics:

Wheels as ever were first. They were treated with Smart Wheels mixed 10:1 with water and various brushes, then followed up with IronX to deal with the brake dust pitting:

Next the car was foamed and intricate areas worked with Surfex and a detailing brush.


Then Auto Finesse Lather was used on the paintwork with a lambswool mitt:

After rinsing clean, IronX was used to safely remove any fallout present on the paintwork:

The car was then moved inside for the claying process to pick up any remaining contamination on the paintwork:

The owner helping out with claying:

Next the car was dried then assessed with my Paint Thickness Gauge:

The car was pretty swirly particularly on the wings and bonnet area.

Cheeky cheating lighting shot, but it does look good!!

The exhausts were particularly bad, so I called in my specialist!!

AutoSol and Wire Wool made short work of them (see in the afters)

I finished up with Black Label:

The plastics were looking a little weathered:

Nothing a bit of Auto Finesse Revive can't fix!
