New Car Detail – Aston Martin V8 Vantage

New Car Detail – Aston Martin V8 Vantage 1080 607 Exclusive Car Care

Most people assume that brand new cars are as good as it gets, and therefore no detailing work is required but this actually isn’t the case as new cars can also benefit and this is why we offer our New Car Detail.  This treatment will ensure you receive your car in perfect condition with the very best in protection.

Here we have a new meteorite silver Aston Martin V8 Vantage that saw us travel to HWM Aston Martin (helpful staff and very accommodating) in Walton-on-Thames, Surrey to carry out our New Car Detail treatment for a client.

Once the Aston was washed and prepped for polishing, I was able to thoroughly inspect the paint to see what kind of condition it was in. It was clear upon inspection that a single stage machine polish would not be enough to fully remove all the defects (mainly the DA sanding marks) so a 2 stage machine polish was carried out.

Below are a few “before & afters” during the first stage of machine polishing.


Once the paint was corrected it was to time to refine the finish with a second stage of machine polishing.. The second step utilizes a finishing polish and pad to remove any marring leftover in the paint from the first step which will add gloss and great clarity.

Once all the machine polishing stages were complete the paintwork was given another wipe down with CarPro Eraser. Eraser is an intense cleaner designed to dissolve oil particles and remove polish residue which will ensure a totally clean paint surface on which the LSP (last step product) can bond – in this case its Gtechniq C1

Gtechniq C1 is a Ceramic Quartz coating that chemically bonds to become the new surface layer of your cars paint giving unrivalled durability, UV resistance, dirt repellency, easy clean and swirl resistance.

Gtechniq C1 was applied to all painted area’s and also the wheels

All exterior trim was coated with CarPro DLUX.  This is NOT a dressing that quickly wears off…this is a semi-permanent coating that will last for a long time and offers great UV protection against fading.

Exhausts were sealed with Britemax Final Shine – Metal Polish and Sealant. This will protect the metal for months and make future cleaning of them easier.

Windscreen treated with Gtechniq G1 rain repellent coating which can last up to 2 years. This will improve driver visibility in all weather conditions and will make wet weather driving safer & less tiring.

All rubber seals were treated with Swissvax Seal Feed to keep them conditioned and pliable. It also effectively prevents rubber seals from freezing during the winter months.

Leather seats were cleaned and then coated with Gtecniq L1. This offers protection against staining and also adds water repellency to the surface of the leather. Great product to prevent dye transfer from jeans on lighter coloured leather.
