Mk1 Focus RS – 3k Miles: Underside Clean
Here is an example of a Mk1 Focus RS which had been loved since day one, and had wax/grease sprayed on to the underside and running gear.
We purchased this car the first time around from the original owner, and the car was sold quickly once we brought it in to stock.
4 years later the car came back in to our stock from the second owner and again, the car found a home very quickly.
The purchaser asked that, on top of the usual prep by ourselves, could the grease & wax be cleaned off the underside to expose the beautiful original condition.
First thing was first, a full snow foam, both on top and underneath, followed by a decontamination of the paintwork.
Wheels were removed and decontaminated, then treated.
Whilst the wheels were off, we set about cleaning the inner arches, and the running gear underneath.
The brake discs were removed, and cleaned.
The engine was fully detailed, with all hoses being cleaned and treated, as well as the inner wings, and all plastics.
All leather was treated, and carpets, steering wheel, pedal rubbers.
Then the car received a two stage paint enhancement (machine polish).
Once this was complete, we set about removing all the wax and grease that had been sprayed on to the underside, this was a very lengthy process using various products, but revealed a beautiful original underside.
