A special client of ours recently took delivery of one of these fabulous machines and had it brought to the SweetCars detail studio for an application of 22ple VM1 on the wheels and calipers. After spending some fun miles on the road, the MP4-12C was in need of protection that would help make the wheels and calipers easy to clean and maintain. The vehicle also had some areas that required correction and polishing. The McLaren underwent a process which included: wheel removal, claying, polishing, 22ple prep and 22ple installation. The wheels and calipers were prepped with 22ple VM1 which is resistant to temperatures of up to 700 degrees and will give up to 12 months of protection.
