We had this Ford Focus ST in Stealth Grey for a Gloss Enhancement and EXOv4 coating.

Stealth Grey on these Fords is a softer paint that we found to be quite sticky which made polish residue removal a bit more taxing than your usual automotive paint. The softness of the paint also meant that even a medium polish like Menzerna’s 2200 was leaving micro marring in the paint after polishing and being wiped down with Gtechniq’s Panel Wipe. Menzerna’s 3800 was used as the correctional fluid on this paint instead as it provided an excellent finish. 2200 was used to correct deeper marks and 3800 to refine those areas along with enhance the rest of the paint and ensured perfect clarity.

Once the enhancement was finished the ST was washed, air dried, panel wiped and inspected before application of EXO. EXO is an excellent coating to apply to your paint on its own as it will still make maintenance and washing a breeze with its class leading hydrophobic properties.

Stealth Grey on this ST was now living up to the name with its new lease of life and glassy reflections courtesy of EXOv4.
