We had this Volvo 540 in with us for a Show Prep detail before Full of The Pipe Truck Show. The owner of this truck was happy with how the paintwork looked and he was mainly concerned about getting the rest of the Artic such as the chassis up to spec.

We started off on this job with a deep clean of all surfaces and a safe wash of all areas of the cab so as not to put any defects into the paint. With all of the cab mitted our attention turned to the chassis which had not been cleaned in the trucks year of service and so had accrued a substantial amount of dirt and tar. All of the heavy dirt was safely pressure washed away followed by pre cleaning the chassis and finally washing the chassis. Once the whole truck was washed it was dried before we moved on to tar removal.
The tar removal of the entire chassis and cab of this truck took almost a full day alone making sure we got off all of the tar we could physically get our hands to. We used multiple litres of tar and iron remover to ensure we removed as much contamination from both the chassis and cab as possible. The Cab was also clayed to remove any other remaining contamination before we sealed the Cab and all other painted areas with Gtechniq C2v3 Liquid Crystal.
After thousands of miles of tar and other contaminants removed from this workhorse it was ready to head straight up to the show to look her best.
