2004 New Formula Red S2000 Detailed and Polished

Alright so today I finally got my beloved S2000 detailed & polished at my trustworthy friend's place . Itís been almost 3 years since I had my S2 and this is the first time sheís getting polished . I have actually thought about taking my S2 before to get polished but I never really wanted to go to a detailing shop because of horror stories Iíve heard, though there are some good ones out there but unfortunately they are out of my price range. I'm very happy with Kenneth's work and would recommend him to anyone without any hesitation because of the excellent quality of work he puts in at very competitive prices.

Anyway, I just quoted from the thread from detailingbliss which he posted on.

Well here is the car on arrival






















First wash starting from the wheels











Wax is gone






Cleaned the exhaust tip and wheels





Car had very little contaminants









Used a leaf blower to dry the car




Using my new Highline II PTG, there were some 80micron areas on the hood and trunk lid, but overall the car was very healthy. Signs of repair work was obvious from the 1000+ micron readings on the front fenders and the passenger side rear quarter panel











I hate doing taping, but it must be done.











Tried to take some pictures of the swirls


First attempt at a 50/50



Before shots






After



















Headlight before



Headlight after






Comparison of driver side and passenger side mirror. Driver side is not polished yet. Passenger side is after polishing.


Driver side. So hazy.



Passenger side. So shiny




8. Two layers of wax were applied. First time with Collinite 845. Second time Victoria Concours Wax.


Waiting for Collinite 845 to dry



Noticed some water bead lol



After Collinite 845






Onto Victoria Concours Wax, waiting for it to dry.



After wiping. End result.


















It was very unfortunate that it started raining outside, so we couldnít take any pictures against the sunlight :hmph:

Watching him drive off into the rain :shakehead:



Thanks for viewing.

Would love to get some proper feedback and advices!

Doesn't really matter since both are really waxes. Prob using 845 as a base since it has crazy durability.
