Detailed - Mitsu Lancer Evo X MR

Did an Evo X today, must say it's one of the nicest Evo's I've seen around. Anyways, the car was already in great condition since it's off the road. Previous protection was Collinite 845, I stripped it with Majestic Solutions Ultra-Gloss and Zep Citrus Degreaser. LSP I used was Bilt Hamber Autobalm. Waxed the wheels and brakes with Collinite 845 and let it sit for roughly 30 minutes. Really glad I waxed the brembos, they came out looking really glossy. CF diffusor waxed with Collinite 845 as well. Anyways, I'll let the pictures speak for themselves. The after pictures were taken when it was cloudy out so reflections aren't as deep looking.

Wash:
- 2 Bucket Method w/ Grit Guards
- Raceglaze Sheepskin Washmitt
- Majestic Solutions Ultra Gloss
- Zep Citrus

Wheels/Tires:
- Zep Citrus Degreaser
- Raceglaze XL Wheel Brush
- Swissvax Wheel Brush
- Meguiars Tire Brush
- Old Sponge cut in half
- Michaels Paint Brush
- Gloss-It Signature Tire Gloss

Claying:
- Riccardo Blue
- ONR Clay Lube

Last Step Protection:
- Bilt Hamber Auto Balm
- Distilled Water
- Blackfire Applicator Pad
- Cookie Monster V2

Befores:














Dirt Build Up


Wheels weren't bad at all, just a bit browning on the tires








During Wash






BALLER STATUS (CG Purple, Riccardo Yellow, Riccardo Blue)










Gloss-It Signature Tire Dressing


LSP












Collinite 845 on diffuser






Wheels/Brake Calipers waxed with 845
































Thanks for looking!

Maybe its just the color of the car, but the shine doesnt really show here.

It's because when I took the before pictures, it was sunny out and the car was in a spot where reflections are bright. After I finished the car it was overcast out and I guess it was a bad idea to move it where we did. Theres tall evergreen trees all around so it was a dark area to shoot. Appreciate the honesty though
