MK1 FORD FOCUS RS SHOW CAR DETAIL

An awesome MK1 Ford Focus RS booked in for a detail prior to it going off to it’s new owner to enjoy. Resprayed in gloss white it makes a refreshing change to the blue they only originally came with from Ford. One to make the purists cry into their pillows at night. A lot of work has gone into this build, subtle touches you only notice when moving your way around the car. RS logo engraved into the actual brake discs themselves was a sweet touch, as well as engine bay touches.

A two stage machine polish was carried out to brighten up the paintwork with Finishkare Hi Temp wax applied to the paintwork and Rota wheels, which had some very subtle Ford Motorsport decals going on – blink and you’ll miss ’em! Interior was vacuumed throughout and the engine bay dressed with Aerospace 303. Ready to be pampered by it’s new keeper who already has more modifications planned for it.

1995 ESCORT COSWORTH

I grew up around these cars, all day everyday when I was younger. My father building championship winning Cosworths and big bhp road going versions that were built and shipped off around the world for customers back in the 80’s and 90’s. One of my earliest memories of one of his Cosworth’s was his 500bhp white RS500 3 door, popping flames when he’d pick me up from Primary School, kids would cover their ears. Having owned probably hundreds of each model it was an awesome moment rolling this in for it’s detail, like a time machine for me on wheels.

A Ford icon, the 1995 Escort Cosworth in imperial blue was booked in for a single stage enhancement detail to rid minor to moderate paint defects and a coat of Kamikaze Collection Infinity wax for protection.

Being a 1995 vehicle, extreme care was taken while machine polishing, some deeper marks remain but the objective was to improve the paint surface and give it some deep gloss, achieved!

Original 18″ OZ Racing wheels were coated with Finishkare hi temp wax, glass cleaned, with the interior vacuumed.

Check the video out the insane wet look finish!
