Classic Audi Quattro charity detail

This particular car was owned by the winner of a charity detail that was raffled in conjunction with my friends at the northern retro (tnr) on Facebook. A community for retro and classic fans of all marques.
I had offered a heavy enhancement to the value of £750 to be raffled as they saw fit, to support their chosen charity.

I also want to take the time to thank member ( and close friend) matt1234. He spent his week off pulling me out the proverbial, being dragged up and down the country to work on various cars. I owe you buddy

After the wheels were done and a careful ONR wash/decontamination the car was placed in the studio for plans to begin

Wiper arms were taken off as always on these old cars to allow thorough polishing

Sunroof was removed so we could take off the seal to again allow for thorough polishing

And then trims were cleaned with alcohol and various solvers to get rid of the years and years of dressings and dirt

Badges were removed

And to further clean up the back end we also removed the spoiler

This will give you a good idea of what we were working with

We even tidied up the rear tinted lights and coupe inlay

After all the heavy work was done, the car received a further onr clean down to get rid of dust etc, and was then refined.
After a wipe down we then reinstalled stripes and decals, rebuilt the car and applied a coat of ODK Revere.
Interior was done and the finer details taken care of, ready for her to be picked up on the first tnr meet of the year, hosted by yours truly! Please enjoy some finished shots

Once again, thanks to member matt1234. There are very few people with a similar work ethic to me, and even more rare it is to find someone who will give up time for free to do good in the world. I am truly truly grateful

Nice work.

Must say that they really disappoint me as a car, when I went out in one about 10 years ago they were just 'blah'.

As for the Lotus Elite 501, they really haven't aged well. A truely ugly car. My Dad had one when I was in infant school - XCE 656T and I thought it was amazing at the time. Really ugly car. His had a V8, LSD and Spyder chassis.
