M.I. fought the law and M.I. won.
Its always nice to do something different, so when we were asked to do a Police Car, we jumped at it.
Mind you, this is no average police car, this is Johannesburg's very own High speed chase vehicle. This is a Renault Megane F1 with upgraded intercooler, bigger turbo, softwear upgrade and all sorts of other goodies under the hood. The car runs on semi slicks and has a full roll cage installed.

Of course, it also has a full siren and blue flashing light set up. (naturally we had to try this out in our complex. At 10h00 at night. :nonoBluebiggrin What fun.Icon9

Right, so this car was due to be in a magazine shoot and we were meant to have started on it ages ago, which never happened. Soooo, as luck would have it, we had one evening and half the next day to sort this car out. It was in a very sorry state. We should have hit this car at least twice but only had time for a one step polish. Interior was also rushed through slightly.

Process:

Car washed with Sonax ultra shine.
Clay was poorboys clay.
Dried with DD waffles
One step polish with Menz SIP and LC orange pad. Worked in at 900 then sped up to 1300 and back to 900 to try and finish off as best as possible.

Rest of the products

Megs APC
Sonax Mag cleaner
4 star
Megs plastic protector
Sonax rubber care
Sonax Paint cleaner
Smart wax rim wax
AG fast glass

Interior

DD mf cloths
Sonax Upholstery foam
Jeffs Satin prot
AG fast glass

We got the car rather late, so it was not east to get before pics, we also wanted to get started.
