Detailed 2003 Ford Expedition

Just thought I would list this Ford Expedition I detailed for a client in San Diego who bought this used. It was in pretty bad shape interior and exterior. Tried to be as detailed as possible so any hobbyist detailers can pick up a thing or two. Enjoy



Products used:

Interior
  • Meguires APC+ diluted 10:1
  • Woolite diluted 6:1
  • Prima Nero
  • Folex
  • 303 Aerospace protectant
  • Bissell LCGM non heat
  • Craftsman 5 hp shop vac

Exterior
  • Prima Mystique
  • Prima Swirl
  • Claymagic Blue Clay
  • Prima Epic
  • Collinite 845 IW
  • Black Wow

Tires/Wheels/Wells
  • Meguires Hyper Dressing Diluted 4:1
  • Meguires APC+ Diluted 4:1
  • Purple Power Degreaser

Total Time: 21 hrs :eek:

Surprised to find out didn't take any entire car shots....

Swirl-Mania














Mats Before


Mats after Pressure Washing, Folex, APC, and LGCM. Note: The mat on bottom right had cigarette burn marks. Can't do much about that.

Re: Detailed 2003 Ford Expedition

wow, that must have been a fleet vehicle, that is what they usually look like after a typical fleet term of 2 years. does it have high miles? that is a good indicator.
