Juicy Detailing Sepang Audi TTRS
Andrew (Abyss) collected his Sepang TTRS about a couple of months ago which we managed to get booked in for the second week in February. Now generally speaking he keeps the car looking immaculate, however this was how it arrived!
Number plates removed to make cleaning easier
Oooo look at that muck coming off!
Rinsed off and already looks better
Decontamination then began using
Alloys sprayed with Car Pro Iron X, agitated and rinsed
The paintwork sprayed and wiped over with a microfiber wash mitt to work in the Iron X
Iron X washed and rinsed off and then to remove tar spots using Car Pro Tar X some larger bits been picked up on the car
Again the car was washed and rinsed off and the final decontamination to clay using yellow extra fine poly clay and Juicy Lube. Couple of shots of the clay showing that contamination was still present on the car
Final wash and dry using Chemical Guys Wooly Mammoth drying towel and all door shuts, drip areas using a Chemical Guys Professional Dryer.
The car was then evaluated for imperfections and taped up

After a few test sections I decided on using Scholl S17+ and a Scholl white/black spider polishing pad using a Festool Rotary. Work in progress on the bonnet:
1 stage using above combination and wiped down using Car Pro Eraser panel wipe
Paint work is brighter, more depth and flake pop
Stage 2 - Refinement using 3M Ultrafina polish and a Scholl finishing pad
Bonnet all finished including wiped down with Eraser again
Working on the roof
All finished and wiped down
Moving on to the back quarter on the drivers side nice 50/50. I used a small 3M polishing pad in combination with Scholl S17+ to assist with the angles and ensure all areas were corrected properly.
Close up clarity and check out the swirls/scratches on the rear light (see later for correction)
50/50 on the drivers wheel arch
Corrected including rear side
Progress so far on the car
Moving over to the passenger rear quarter
Completed passenger side
Moving on to the front bumper
Front lights corrected after completing the bumper - sorry no pics
Moving to the rear of the car spoiler being corrected. The towel was used to protect the paint work from the top of the rotary catching and causing damage
50/50 on spoiler
Back bumper corrected
Rear lights before
Rear lights after correction
Underneath the door handles and under the spoiler where it was difficult to get access with the machine I used Gtech P1 by hand.
The car was given a full wipe down again to ensure all oils and fillers were removed before doing the final stages of the detail.
The car was left overnight so in the morning before applying the remaing products I dusted the car off to ensure nothing was on the car using a Supernatural Duster or a good alternative is Chemical Guys Dust Monster XL
A coat of Chemical Guys Ez Creme was applied
For the LSP (last stage protection) I used Swissvax Crystal Rock and a CG UFO for application, this was left for 30 minutes to cure before buffing off
Wax left to cure...
The tyres and trims were dressed using Valet Pro Dionysus Trim Glitz
Completed and I used some of the Gtec P1 one by hand on the silver trim which brought it up nice and bright
