Audi R8 V10 Spyder

November 8, 2017

 

 

The Audi R8 came to us needing a bit of TLC, and that’s exactly what it got!

 

It received an enhancement detail with ceramic coating, Interior deep clean and the fabric roof cleaned and protected.

 

As with all our detailing packages, this one included the safe wash plus decontamination of the body and wheels before the drying stage. We noticed that there was a lot of visible over spray present on the vehicle, including mirrors, glass and chrome. This was reduced using clay in the decontamination stage. Once inside we air & towel dried the whole car, releasing trapped water from the trims, seals and wheels.

As we had noticed that some areas of the vehicle had been resprayed, we tested the paint depth of every panel, to ensure that we had a safe working level of clear coat.

 

With it being an enhancement detail, we aimed to achieve 60% defect removal. The correction started with a cutting stage, microfibre cutting pad and a heavy cut compound, to remove all of the deeper swirls and overspray from the vehicle. A light polishing/finishing pad was then used, along with final finish was then used to refine the paintwork to a high gloss finish.

 

Once all correction had been completed, we panel wiped the whole vehicle to remove polish residue and any oils left on the paint, giving the best surface for the ceramic to adhere to. After the ceramic was applied and cured, we coated the vehicle with C2v3 sealant to boost self-cleaning properties, making maintenance and general upkeep a breeze.

 

All Glass, trim and tyres were also coated with Gtechniq products including G5 & T1. The roof was also coated in Gtechniq Smart Fabric.

 

To finish this detail off, we deep cleaned the interior, to ensure all leather, plastic & carbon fibre was free from oily residues and dirt.
