Ultimate Shine Autos were delighted to help train the staff at Aston Martin and Rolls Royce Motorcars Edinburgh on the application of Gtechniq's brand new dealership program 'Platinum'.
After a thorough decon wash we dried the test car, then carried out a single stage machine polish.
We used Festool Rotex polishers, orange pads and Scholl Concepts S30 to remove any slight imperfections and marring.
Double checking all panels are in perfect condition and if not fixing them.
A single stage correction is always necessary as even a freshly delivered car can have some damage.
After correction we cleansed the paint thoroughly with Gtechniq Panel Wipe before applying Platinum.
We let both Kerry and Pawel take turns at applying products, making sure both were aware of the reason behind each process.
Starting to apply the brand new Platinum coating, taking time to show them the time scale for excess removal.
Both trainees took to the system very well.
Concentration levels set to maximum to ensure there is no area left untouched.
Once the exterior was completed, we left that to cure and moved to the interior, protecting the leather, plastics and carpets.
Next was the glass receiving new G5.5.
Moving into the final stages, we used Panel Wipe to wipe down the wheels and then applied the wheel sealant.
Interior glass cleaned.
Dust down, final touches and hand back checks complete.
There was a noticeable difference in the gloss level.
Even the valeters from the other dealership noticed the difference.
Sales team happy, customer happy and Aston Martin valeters happy with the new knowledge they have gained. A good day all round.
The very last piece of the jigsaw was the 5 year warranty sticker.
