1000hp+ Jeep Clean up

Hey guys, recently got to detail a friends jeep which is poster child in the LX community for jeeps really. Really was a pleasure to work on it after being let go from Ferrari and if anyone has any questions don't be afraid to ask. here we go:

For those interested that don't know about it, heres some background on it:
-Aluminum 426 block
-Vortech YSi Supercharger
-Complete custom driveline
-Paramount Performance trans and T-case
-Fastest supercharged GC SRT, ran 9.41 this last summer in the 1/4

Inspection:





Couple normal wash marks



Fender under LED and Halogens and Brinkmann







Taped up



Pillars corrected





Driver door under mirror corrected



Driver rear door





Where gas cap hits paint



Tails lookin a little worse for wear





Quarter cleaned up

Re: 1000hp+ Jeep Clean up

Rear pillar knocked







Nicer





Tail lights polished



Rear bumper scratch before





Cleaned up a little, but gunna come back to it later, wetsanding most likely needed



Fender like deep dark space



Passenger side rear, low pressure area throws up all road grime



Tape off and all done for now until Michigan weather cooperates for more haha





When track season gets closer it will be getting a semi-permanent coating to protect it better over its busy track days of rubber and tar.

Thanks for looking everyone!

Thanks man! Not many shops and unskilled guys can, most shops will just throw heavy glazes over this and cover it up. With my work at ferrari, I quickly learned that was not the way I wanted to go about my work, much more fulfilling in the end.

Re: 1000hp+ Jeep Clean up

Do you mind sharing products used? What polisher do you use?

Re: 1000hp+ Jeep Clean up

Ill try to remember them all but there really was so many I doubt ill get them all.

_Cutting_
-Flex pe14-2 rotary with lake country orange pad and Menzerna FG1000/400
-Griots gen 3 orbital with chemical guys microfiber cutting pad and meguiar 105/300 combo

_Leveling_
-Griots gen 3, lake country crimson w/menzerna 2500

_Finishing_
-Griots gen 3, white pad and Adams fine machine polish and in other places
-Griots gen 3, menzerna 85rd and black lake country pad

That was the main idea overall, many different steps were used on various parts of the car depending on where I was. I would not recommend a rotary polisher to anyone new but in the hands of someone who knows how to use it, its a very valuable tool. Ill tell you like I told anyone else, I know a lot of detailers across the nation and can recommend quality work, the absolute worst thing anyone can do is to go with the "groupon" or cheapest option, an unexperienced detailer can destroy your paint, and in many cases beyond repair without a repaint. Anyways besides the polishing heres some other products:

-Adams Detail Spray
-Adams Waterless Wash
-Adams All Purpose Cleaner
-Adams Clay Bar
-Various Microfibers
-Adams Glass Cleaner
-Adams Glass Sealant

and soon itl be back for a treatment with 22PLE Glass Coating.
