Project Cx7

So my cousin has a Mazda Cx7.She had been working in New York for the past 3 years.She bought the car there ,because she needed something good for the snow.Now she's back in Texas and the car never really had a good cleaning(at least not by my standards). I figured i would take pictures of the process.

This here is a photo before i started on it




now after i washed it with Dawn




after the claybar




Since there was high humidity yesterday and i started later than i wanted to.I just put one coat of Zaino and a coat of the Grand Finale spray seal .






and here is a photo of the interior,I used Connelly borthers leather cleaner and leather care to re-hydrate it after i cleaned it.



I must give credit to my cousin as she was a great help.It would have taken me longer to finish without her

Looks like a big difference in the gloss level. How long did the whole process take?

I started at 11:30 and was done by 4:47 .The reason it took so long is because there was months of neglect spattered on the front of the car.Starting from snowy New York to Dallas,and 2 months of going back and forth from Dallas to Houston every weekend.She now has a mandatory appointment with me every other week to have it washed and at least one coat of Zaino Z2.The gloss should improve more as coats are added.
