    John Cooper Works Mini Cooper

    2013 Mini Cooper JCW (John Cooper Works)
    6 speed manual, 1.6 liter turbo 4 cylinder
    211HP/207TQ
    30,000 miles



    This hot little hatch needed some correction and protection! Car was full of minor swirls, scuffs, and some heavier scratches. The wheels were very hazy from improper use of wheel cleaner (too much dwell time), or a very acidic/heavy duty wheel cleaner.
    Interior was in good shape, just needed a cleanup and the leather coated.

    The ‘details’:

    Washed with SCG Pro shampoo.
    Clayed via Griot’s medium mitt.
    McKee’s37 Iron remover.
    Adam’s wheel cleaner.
    Adam’s tire and rubber cleaner.
    Misc. brushes/etc.
    Dried via Master Blaster.
    Lighting by Scan Grip.
    DeFelsko PTG.
    Rupes MkIII 15, Rupes iBrid.
    Beta test/prototype wool pad. (this thing kicked _ss and left the surface almost LSP ready)
    Rupes yellow pad for finishing/enhancing.
    Beta test/prototype compound. (it’s incredible)
    Griot’s perfecting cream.
    Griot’s correcting cream was used to polish the wheels along with Rupes blue and green pads.
    Misc. MF towels.
    Optimum panel wipe for final wipe down.
    22ple Mistico Elemento Forte was the LSP.
    22ple VM1 on calipers and wheels.
    Ranger Quickjack for lifting duties.
    Adam’s tire armor was used for the tire dressing.
    McKee’s37 glass cleaner.
    Metro vacuum.
    McKee’s total interior cleaner.
    GYEON leather shield on interior leather bits.

    Thanks for looking!











    Wheels were stained/etched/cloudy from improper use of wheel cleaner or the incorrect cleaner.
