    2020 Volvo XC60

    2020 Volvo XC60 T5 R Design
    Bright Silver Metallic
    1729 miles


    Client of mine recently picked this up for family use. Very cool/stylish/well designed/configured vehicle! I like it!
    Paint was in very good shape, minimum defects; piano black trim/tail lights were the worst areas.
    Minor correction/gloss enhancement and ceramic coating were on deck…


    The ‘details’:

    McKee’s37 iron remover.
    Adam’s shampoo.
    Adam’s wheel cleaner.
    Adam’s tire and rubber cleaner.
    Defelsko PTG.
    Scangrip and GYEON lighting.
    Flex XFE15
    Misc. foam pads.
    Griot’s perfecting cream.
    Adam’s surface prep.
    Adam’s Graphene/Ceramic coating.
    Auto Finesse glass cleaner.
    GYEON tire dressing.
    Metro vacuum.
    McKee’s37 quick interior detailer.
    GYEON leather on seats.

    Thanks for looking!

    Sizzle Chest:
    Thanks for posting pics of this Swedish SUV. While not enamored with the silver metallic exterior, it is a very nice-looking vehicle. I did have to look up what the T5 meant (a Turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder) and the R-Design (a "package" of upgrade options to the stereo, safety technology and interior climate controls) Volvo has always made "sensible" luxury vehicles that has their "unique" owner`s appeal , similar to Subaru "unique" owners. (You can interpret "unique" in any number of ways)

    Do you correct the piano black door trim and tail light plastic "differently" than the paint? I did not see a Rupes I-brid or mini buffer in your list of products or equipment used for this particular vehicle.

    You`ve used both the Adam`s and SPS graphene coatings. Which do you prefer and which is easier to apply? I know that the Adams graphene "kit" is less-expensive, and does that have any weight on your preference? ( Captain Obvious, the man of never-ending questions)

    By the way, that pic of the corrected piano black door trim shows a reflection of "someone" who looks like they just got a buzz-job hair cut. Cool for the summer..

    It seems like EVERY vehicle that you detail and then photograph in your home driveway looks like it just belongs there. This Volvo in its silver livery REALLY gives credibility to that statement.

    I assume your better half got her Porsche GTS Mecan back from warranty service and that she returned the 718 Boxer. Or is she thinking of a trade?!!!

    Hi Lonnie! I agree. I like the looks/features of this Volvo!

    I used a `light` polishing pad and the same chemical on the black trim with my Pixie, I guess I forgot to put that in my list of tools used.

    I think that both are very easy to apply, the edge going to the Adam`s product. Pricing doesn`t really come into play; I like ease of installation and performance for my clientele.

    Yes!! LOL, I keep it short...as it is `naturally` getting short on the top! Mrs. Sizzle has gotten quite proficient at the buzz cut!

    Yes, we received it back and returned the Boxster. No trading in the near future, at least with the Macan. I have, however, become infatuated with the Lexus LC500 for some reason...

    ^^^^ Thanks Sizzle Chest for your answers to my many and varied questions.

    Tell the Mrs. she is an excellent barber!! (No snide comments on her "folically challenged" practice specimen, though)

    Yah, I had to Google a Lexus LC500. Not bad looking coupe or convertible and its performance is top notch, depending on which variant/model you get.
    Is this to replace the 911 or add to your vehicle stable??
