1953 Allard J2X
We had a lifetime opportunity to work on a vintage, rare 1950s, modern hand-crafted version of the famed British competition roadster that stirred crowds in Europe and North America. Utilising the range of Detailing Kingdom products.
For vintage cars like this, it is not a good idea to use modern decontamination techniques as they are not design to handle high pressure rinse like modern today cars do. Using Optimum's No Rinse Rinseless wash to wash over the whole car and using Detailing Kingdom's Car Hydra and fine clay bar to safely remove decontaminants and iron fall outs.
This vintage roadster has been restored at some point of its life and it is not well taken care of, whole car is filled with RIDS (Random Isolated Deep Scratches) and swirl marks. A several stages of paint correction is then carried out to restore back to showroom condition.
Utilising Detailing Kingdom's Next Cut compounds and pads, we are able to achieve an excellent finish.
Detailing Kingdom's Fluid Dynamics Teflon (FDT) Sealant is then used as a last step product to not only gives the car a decent protection, it also gives a deeper finish.

Black cars are every detailer's nightmare. But the finished results are usually the best looking shine. It always reminds us the reason why love detailing - the result we spent hours, sometimes even days to achieve.
"When passion meets perfection"
Firstly, we pre-soak the car with a snow foam and high pressure rinse it off to loosen up heavy dust, dirt and grime from the previous track day.
Utilising Detailing Kingdom's Car Hydra premium car shampoo in conjunction with a 2-bucket method wash and sheep skin wash mitt, we safely clean the car without causing existing damage to the paintwork.
We then use dK's Wheel X to clean the wheels and paintwork by lifting iron fallout particles (ferrous) safely due to its true pH 7 neutral solution. Following up with a clay-bar treatment process to completely remove any contaminants on the paint.
We dried the car by using a microfibre waffle weave towel, we avoid using chamois (shammy) because a chamois is one of the main reasons paint imperfections is caused.
With only about 26,xxx kms on the clock, the paintwork is really bad. Possibly caused by improper delivery methods from the dealership (holograms) and improper caring methods from the owners of this car.
After thorough examination of the paintwork, a Stage 2 Paint Correction is then carried out to remove 90% of the imperfections, using Detailing Kingdom Next Cut series compounds and pads.
Finishing Step (LSP)
Detailing Kingdom DK9 is a polymer based sealant with a very high polymer content, often used as a Part B/Top Coat for Quartz Coatings too - because not only it provides a good finish, it also provides contains hydrophobic properties.
