Club member Tommy has an 05 MCS HB/W that he has kept up pretty well. Tommy asked me to detail so I took some before and after pictures. The main problems were swirls, faded/dull stripes and his leather needed cleaning and treatment. Steps: 1. Dawn wash to remove the carnauba wax and road grime. 2. Clay 3. Black WOW on all trim 4. Prima Swirl on an orange pad (both 3" & 6") 5. Amigo on a white pad 6. Epic on a black pad 7. Four Star leather cleaner followed by Prima Nourish 8. Prima Nero interior vinyl 9. Clean engine bay 10. Polish wheels and wax with Prima Wheel Armour 11. Adam's Undercarriage spray in fender wells 12. Wizards Black Renew on all trim and tires I started yesterday at 7:00 PM and worked until 11 PM then got started this morning at 8:00 AM and finally finished up at 8:00 PM. Enough talk. Drivers side before and after - lots of swirls and some deeper scratches. The stripes were quite dull but polish cleaned and shined them right up (careful of the black pins) The A pillar is typically swirled but using a 3" orange pad with Swirl made them clear again. The top had some damage from a roof rack that was mostly removed - not perfect but better. The boot, as usual is a great place to find swirls. Took a lot of time but mostly gone. So after 16 hours of work the MINI looks good. A fun way to spend a Holiday.
