Mclaren MP4-12C Correction Detail & CSL
So we had something rather exciting to work on recently, this lovely McLaren MP4-12C, in for our Gtechniq exterior/ interior correction package. As you’ll see this car was almost a different colour when we first started, due to a few years of those ‘Hand Car Washes’. We started with a high concentration snow foam as the car was dirty, then on to a full wash paying special attention to the cars’ intricacies and badges. On to decontamination with the clay bar, mask the car up and start the correction with Rupes Bigfoot. A full wipe down with Gtechniq Panel Wipe, apply CSL followed by EXO and finish up with the interior. CREDIT: Professional shots taken by Matthew Lawrence Photography
Snow foam to remove any light surface contamination.
Then a full bodywork wash by hand before moving on to the clay bar to remove any stuck on contaminates.
Not to forget a thorough clean round all badges with soft bristle brushes.
All four wheels given a full decontamination and wash down by hand before a final rinse down of all external areas.
After fully drying the paintwork, it was time to fully mask all areas including glass and trims.
It was then on to the three stage polishing process using the trusty Rupes and a selection of pads.
Plenty of progress being made!
Although the overall condition of this paint was great, once polished the difference was becoming very noticeable.
After a full panel wipedown C1 was used to seal all external areas, along with C5 on all wheels
Not missing out on any areas, including numerous areas of carbon fibre!
After all the polishing was completed it was time to stand back and admire the freshly corrected paintwork.
After removing all polishing dust it was time for a wipe down of panel wipe before Gtechniq application.
After finishing off any fiddly bits it was time for C5 on all wheels before a generous coating of G1 on ALL glass surfaces.
Gtechniq C4 permanent trim also used on all black trim areas to give a lasting finish.
After around 50 hours we were left with the below and what a transformation!
