ProjectDetail: 700+BHP WRX STI *lots of pics

Got the chance to work on a car I've been a big fan of. Owners super chill and definitely has the quickest STI I've been in, let alone car. Little bit of background info, the STI just got back from a track weekend at Pacific Raceways in WA. So the paint had rubber all over and wheels were covered in a thick layer of brake dust. Seeing as how much there was I wanted to try something strong, but didn't want to use anything acidic. So I picked up some Autoglym Custom Wheel Cleaner since it was on sale for $9.69. I must say, great product, it pulled off so much grime from the tires right away and pulled the brake dust off no problem. Zep Citrus definitely would have a problem with these wheels, may end up picking up a large quantity from Ken over at Autowerkes Exclusive soon. BTW, sorry for the large amount of pictures, a lot of people asked me to take a crap load of pics lol...Heres the product list:

Wash:
- 2 Bucket Method w/ Grit Guards
- Raceglaze Sheepskin Washmitt
- Raceglaze Brush (Cracks/Crevices)
- Meguiars Gold Class
- Dawn Dishwashing Detergent
- Zep Citrus
- Majestic Solutions Ultra Gloss
- Optimum No Rinse

Wheels/Tires:
- Autoglym Custom Wheel Cleaner
- Raceglaze XL Wheel Brush
- Laitner Wheel Brush
- Swissvax Wheel Brush
- Meguiars Tire Brush
- Old Sponge cut in half
- Gloss-It Signature Tire Gloss
- Blackfire Metal Sealant

Clay:
- Riccardo Blue Clay
- ONR Clay Dilution

Last Step Protection:
- Autoglym HD Wax (2 Coats)
- Autoglym Applicator Pad
- Chemical Guys Sasquatch MF
- Wool Duster

Windows:
- Collinite 845 Base Coat
- Autoglym HD Wax Top Coat












Rubber from the track day






Befores of the wheels
























More rubber deposits




My wheel cleaning arsenal


Here is the Autoglym Custom Wheel Cleaner at work, pulled so much grim out of the tire without any agitation. Also took care of the bake dust very well.






After Claying












Note, wheels don't have Blackfire Metal Sealant applied yet...hence why they look a little dull

Some bonus interior shots, no interior detailing was done though

Thanks for looking,

CWC is an amazing product. Pulled grime out of the tires like no tomorrow. I haven't tried HD Wax on a dark coloured car yet. But I will be today on an S4

HD Wax is great. I'll try to get the pictures up from today's S4 detail. Looks great on dark colours as well. I'd keep the Zep, it's great when the wheels have moderate amounts of brake dust.
