Juicy Detailing vs Arden Astra VXR

A well know member off Astra Owners Network recently purchased a new Astra VXR and I offered my services to give her car a good going over before she attend Performance Vauxhall Show.

Its an ex-demo car so not been treated the best and this young lady has not cleaned it either in her last 5 weeks of ownership....naughty naughty girl.

So here are the befores.....

Once the machine polishing stages had been completed and wheels finished the car was washed again and dried.

I then applied one coat of Chemical Guys EZ Creme and 2 coats of Chemical Guys Jet seal leaving 20 minutes between each application and buffing off. Products applied in line with the panels.

Finishing touches were glass cleaned with Chemcial Guys Pro-Detailer. Tyres, vinyl, and rubbers treated with Chemical Guys Trim Gel and metal and crome polished. Plus engine bay cleaned and new plates added and it was previously debadged. So here's the bit you've all been waiting for the end result and reflection shots:

It was raining when I finished so I thought that seeing it was going to get wet back on its way home down south why not do a little water test
