    Default Auto Obsessed Specialty Detail - McLaren MP4-12C

    We at Auto Obsessed are extremely pleased to have had the opportunity to work on the very first McLaren MP4-12C in Edmonton. This vehicle required a quick detail for a photoshoot scheduled for the following day so 4 hours were spent touching up the vehicle.

    Autoglym Custom Wheel Cleaner to lift dirt off the tires:

    Next, the vehicle was foamed using a gentle dilution of Chemical Guys Citrus Wash n Gloss:


    Then washed using the two bucket method and a soft RaceGlaze Sheepskin Mitt:
