Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport

Auto Obsessed performed a 10 hour detail on this very unique 2010 Corvette Grand Sport. A complete wash, decontamination, and wax was in order in addition to an extensive interior, engine bay, wheels, and exhaust tip detail.

A quick look at the vehicle upon arrival:

Insects on the front bumper:


Wheels required some serious attention:




Exhaust tips needed work:


We began this detail with the engine bay, P21s Total Auto Wash was used:


Next, the exhaust tips began it's initial restoration stage with P21s Polishing Soap:


With the engine and exhaust tips out of the way it was time to foam and wash the vehicle using Chemical Guys Citrus Wash n Gloss:


With the vehicle washed, it was placed on a lift where the wheels were taken off to be detailed:


Griot's Garage Heavy Duty Wheel Cleaner was used for the initial cleaning stage:




The barrels of the wheels were heavily contaminated with tar; TarX was utilized:



1z W99 was used to remove previous silicone dressing present on the tires:

With the wheels contaminant free, Gtechniq Wheel Armour was applied:


With the wheels off, the wheel wells and brake calipers were cleaned using 1z W99:


After:




Finally, Swissvax Scuderia was applied to the paint; although Scuderia is made specific to Ferarri we found it greatly enhanced this Grand Sport's red paint.
