I Svended another car.... again.

I detailed another car!

This is a 2018 or so Hyundai Ionic BEV. I’ve cleaned it once before when it was brand new, but now it’s seen some miles, and with winter fast approaching it’s time to put a fresh coat of protection on it, and get the interior cleaned up.

“engine” bay cleaned with Autoglym Engine and Machine cleaner (spray and rinse, all that was needed).

Car was then sprayed with APC to the lowers and grills, and foamed with Autoglym Polar Blast.

After that, the car was washed using the 3 bucket method, clayed, and rinsed down before being brought into the garage for a towel dry. Before I brought the car inside, I tackled the front floor mats as they had a quite a bit of dirt in them.

APC + Extractor Shampoo + Steam Cleaner + Polisher brushing = Gross.

Turning our attention to the rest of the interior...

I didn’t get any photos during the interior or polishing phase, as this was a 1 day turn around. Needless to say, the interior was cleaned with APC and then the dash and panels protected with Turtle Wax Ice Interior Protectant (great stuff!). The seats were cleaned with APC (Fake leather type material), before being wiped down with Mothers M-tech leather cleaner and conditioner (also good stuff). Glass was cleaned with Stoners Invisible glass, and then the car was treated to a couple sprays of chemical guys Leather Scent.

The exterior was given a quick 1 step polish with Meguiars Ultimate Polish on Lake Country White CCS pads. After that, it was given a full wipe down with IPA/Panel wipe, and sealed with Sonax Polymer Net Shield. After a few hours of curing, it was given a Final wipe down with Sonax Brilliant Shine Detailer. Here are the afters.

Please note I didn’t apply tire shine as it’s pouring rain and not really necessary this time of year.
