The owner of this Jaguar F-Type SVR painted in Ultra Blue wanted his brand new pride and joy to receive the best start in life so booked it in for our New Car Preparation & Protection Detail along with fitment of Xpel Paint Protection Film to some areas of the car.
All treatments start with a careful and thorough cleansing process, designed to rid the car of dirt and bonded contaminants. This started by giving the vehicle a pre-wash with Gtechniq Citrus Foam, this was allowed to dwell for a few minutes before being pressure rinsed off. The vehicle was then washed using the Two Bucket Method with Gtechniq Shampoo and an Microfiber Wash Mitt using filtered water.
With the cleaning stages complete the Jaguar was brought in to the detailing studio and the wheels were removed so they could be fully cleaned and decontaminated prior to being coated with Gtechniq C5 Wheel Armour.
The paintwork was given a single stage machine polish to remove the machine polishing induced buffer trails and holograms that were present from the factory’s poor attempt at machine polishing the car. The spoiler on the boot was removed so all areas could be fully machine polished.
Paint Protection Film (PPF) Jaguar F-Type SVR
With the Ultra Blue paintwork now free of blemishes and swirls it was then time to apply some Xpel PPF (paint protection film) to some areas of the F-Type SVR. The customer requested we protect the front bumper, front wings, side skirts, side mirrors and sections of the rear bumper with paint protection film to protect these vulnerable areas from stone chips and other minor abrasions.
All patterns are computer cut in house using a Graphtec FC8600-160 cutting plotter. This top of the line 64″ plotter cuts the design pattern out of the paint protection film roll, once all cutting is finished we then remove any unnecessary excess film leaving a precision computer cut pattern.
o seal the paintwork the customer chose Gtechniq CS Black. This involves an initial layer of Gtechniq’s most advanced and durable nanotechnology-based sealant. This sealant in itself offers a dual layer protection: the lower layer cures to a hardness of around 7h (on the pencil hardness scale) providing a flexible base. The upper layer cures to a hardness of around 9h, providing an incredibly tough surface resistant to both swirls and extremes of pH. In order to be fully effective Crystal Serum has to be applied in tightly controlled conditions but, once cured is very difficult to remove. For this reason Crystal Serum is available only as a service through Gtechniq Accredited Detailers and comes with a 7 year guarantee.
After Crystal Serum had cured, it was topped with Gtechniq EXOv3 for extra level of protection and additional slickness.
The glass was polished and then sealed with Gtechniq G1 ClearVision Smart Glass. This sealant forms a hydrophobic barrier which causes rain water to roll in to beads on contact which improves visibility in wet weather.
Exhaust tail pipes and brake calipers were sealed using Gtechniq C5 Alloy Wheel Armour, a nanotechnology-based coating resistant to high temperatures. Treated surfaces repel dirt, water, oils and inhibit the build-up of brake dust and fallout deposits, making them easier to maintain with the
Interior was wiped down with Gtechniq Tri-Clean and then the leather surfaces were given two coats of L1 Leather Guard and the fabric upholstery treated with Gtechniq I1 Smart Fabric.
And the end result after two solid days of work
