Mats were protected with Wolf's Textile Sealant

Weather Tech mats were cleaned up with warm water and 1Z einszett Plastic Deep Cleaner and protected with Wolf's Trim Coat

Some nice beading generated and a good indication it was properly applied

then we applied the Wolf's Chemcials Nano Leather Sealant, you can clearly see which side was coated

New tire tend to have gunk on them.

We removed it with Stoners Tarminator and Auto Finesse Obiltarate

So you remember the before shots didn't look to bad, here is the car all cleaned up - light scratches through out, water spots, swirls, imperfections.

After Menzerna FG400 and Sonax 4/6 we were able to remove the defects.
