Exterior Process

  1. A degreaser is applied to the greasy soiled areas of the engine compartment and allowed to saturate before being power washed. While wet conditioner is applied to the plastic and rubber surfaces. The engine compartment is left open while work is done on the wheel wells and wheels to allow for thorough drying.
  2. Wheel wells, tires, and wheels are power washed and hand scrubbed using the appropriate brushes and chemicals. Once these are completed, they are rinsed with the power washer. Conditioners or protectorates are applied just before the final wax is applied to the vehicles surface.
  3. Tar and bug remover are applied with a course sponge and road grime, tar, and bugs are removed.
