13 Explorer Tri coat white Metallic OC2.0

This is my boss's brand new Explorer and wanted it protected before his trip from Vegas to Michigan. I am a bit late getting this one together as this was done 6 weeks ago


Exterior
Wash with 2BM and Sonax car wash
Foam with Gilmour foam gun and Snow Soap
Wheel wells cleaned with APC
Tires scrubbed with Purple degreaser
Wheels cleaned with Wolfgang Uber Wheel Cleaner
Clayed with Last Touch and Meguiars medium clay
Polish with M205/white Hybrid pad
IPA Wipe down
OC2.0
Tires dressed with Meguiars Endurance tire shine

Dont have any before shots as this was just picked up from the dealer and brought to me within a few hundred miles of birth.

Great work Mike!

Cool rear plate, subtle plug.

Might look into getting the Explorer from the Snob.
