High Definition Detailing-Gtechniq Audi S4

Postby High Definition Detailing » Wed Aug 07, 2013 12:16 pm

This Fantastic Audi S4 was booked in a few weeks ago for our New Car Silver Package Detail + Exo2 + wet sanding on the bonnet, scratch and badge removal

This is a beast of a write up so get comfortable :)

All the products used were from the Gtechniq Range including their C1 + Exov2 + C5 + C4 + G1 + L1 + T1 to name but a few

On Arrival - customer uses Victoria Wax so there was no doubting the quality of the shine . . but. . .
It what was lucking underneither all that shine and to help with durability that the customer wanted me to concertrate on
Bird Lime
So on with the process
Snow foamed as some people believe that your not truly detailing unless your snowfoaming :roll: :twisted:
Soft horse hair brush to get into the gaps
Then ironx'd/Tardis and badges removed
Presoaked again for the claying to begin - not to bad so this was pretty standard across the car
Washed and then dried just as the sun to break out - let the fun begin
started with the exhausts - using Meguiars and Britmax chrome polish and alot of elbow grease
Before -Image
After - Image
Then the body - Image
And the correction using Meguairs 105 this paint was rock hard - but. . . it's starting to give way - Image
Not even sure what time of the night it was by now but this came on! which I thought was fitting! Image
Wet Sanded bonnet the next day - Bird Lime 50/50 - Image
The bonnet was in quite a bad way really so could only take so much off regardng the wet sanding and it's not perfect but certainly alot better
Sun Peaking through Image
Pulled outside for a wash down before the polishing with Gtechniq P1 + P2
then pulled outside again just intime for the thunder clouds to come over head - Bonnet reflection Image
Pulled inside - panel wiped down and then C1 Applied and car put to bed. . . . Image
Then began the wheels - Washed - Tardis - Ironx - washed - clayed and wiped down ready for P1 then C5 front and back Image
Calipers and wheels all sealed and finished Image
Tyres treated with T1 Image
then came out the Exov2 two coats of and the interior vacuumed and treated with Matt Dash and L1
And in The finished shots just as it began to treaten rain and was dull !!!!

Well . . . If you made it this far then thank you for reading

I loved this car and even though it fought me all the way and I had very little in the way of sleep for four days (12hrs total) it was a complete pleasure

A big thank must go to - My Rotary broke at 4.50 on friday evening but he got me a replacement for 10am saturday! and to the customer for allowing me the extra day it took to get it right :)
