Had a new car detail,as car had covered 700 miles.All work was done by Ed of divine detail who are based in Surrey.I can highly recommened Ed, as his work is of the higest standards and his very helpful,understanding and a genuine guy.I know he's looking at becoming a sponsor on here.
Car,wheels and calipers was coated in Modesta BC-05 and then Gtechniq EXO for extra protection as Modesta takes upto 2 weeks to cure properly and can last upto 10 years and also enhances the pearl more so than the crystal serum,so im told.
Interior was coated with Gtechnig leather guard,glass cleaned and coated with Gtechniq G1 and removed with G2.
Engine bay cleaned and coated.What suprised me was the amount of contamination came of the paintwork using the clay,see pics.

Here are a few pics

Woww looking good shrimpy !! :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:

Im glad you went for a premium coat for your brand new car :) Should keep it looking fresh and honestly makes your white paint look a lot deeper ;)

Just make sure to maintain it now and dont get it washed at any cheap places..

Here is some pics of mine after having Crystal Serum applied :D

Ah its fine :) I just wanted you to get it done at a proper place and seems that you found a good one..

Good to hear, i also only wash it myself and sometimes at my mates car wash near Ace Cafe.. Yea I had Alfie do the C63 and GTR with Crystal Serum

Hmm, i dont think i will be able to make it for July :/ But will deff see you round at some meets or events later on in the year :)

How are wax and stuff meant to last 2 years? Surely after a fee washes it's all but gone?
Yea, modesta and gtechniq coatings are not wax.. Crystal Serum for example is a hybrid ceramic coating that lasts for 3 years.. I believe the modesta bc05 lasts even longer..

Hmm im no scientist.. But I know that it bonds to the paont on a molecular level.. The the Gtechniq serum is so strong that the only way to remove it is to wet sand it off!

But how? Surely they just get washed off when you wash the car?
Its just like a clear resin bonded to the paint.As Hashlak said its a molecular.They class these products as glass coatings and as said before they are so hard the only way to remove them is with wet and dry sand paper.You cant even burn through them when polishing and are resistant to all chemicals :)
Modesta can last up to 10 years so im told
