56k Icon Joey - Mk2 Audi TT Ibis White

Evening everyone

Here's the Ibis White TT I mentioned in my last topic, the aim was bring it back to new and then some...

It didnt seem too bad at first with a small layer of dirt covering the body, but once jet washed the amount of tar was quite a sight

Day 1 not pictured was spent cleaning the interior and protecting the leather.
-Megs APC and the Raceglaze leather cleanse & protect products were used.

Day 2 Pictured Below:
- Jet Washed
- Snow Foamed
- Two Bucket Wash (Not pictured due to the cold )
- De tar
- Clay Bar
- Jet Wash
- Machined Werkstatt Prime
- Waxed with Collinite 476s
- Wheels and other bits
- Glass Cleaned & Sealed
- Plus final touch ups

Day 3
- Mini Photoshoot

Also all of the photos link to my fickr page if you want to see high res pictures.

Pre Jet-wash



















Nice bit of tar and gunk here...









This will get a nice polish later



The car was then jet washed and Tardis was used to help break down as much tar as possible before cleaning ( Tardis was used after the clean as well but this wasn't pictured)

















Snow foam time















I thought this one was pretty sweet!



The car was then rinsed off and clay bared.

The clay...



Nice and clean...



I'm going to clay the closest section of the bonnet first so you can see how much contamination is picked up from the "clean" paintwork.



Thats the amount of dirt picked up from this small area.



Next up the whole bonnet...



As you can see a lot more dirt has been pulled out of the paint(clear coat)

Remember this car has done only 10k miles and thats what the bonnet lots like, try to imagine what it would look like on an older car with 100k+

The process was continued on the rest of the car to leave it will a silky smooth finish to the touch. This took just over an hour to complete.



Another jet wash after the clay bar to remove any dirt.























Time to dry it down with the PB drying towel.



Werkstat Acrylic Prime for a base to applied the wax, it also helps to improve the finish.



This was machined on with Meg's G220





This needs to be left for a moment before wiping away, you can see it hazed on the paint.







Wax time

Collinite 476s is one of my favourite waxes to use in the winter, should see 6 months protection out of this.





The hard carnauba wax will be applied via my hands, needs to be warmed up in your palms before touching the paint.

This is the last picture of the day, once the wax had cured it was removed.

The exhaust was also polished, wheels, tyres and glass sealed.



Day 3 Photoshoot

The final touches were done to the car and it was ready for pictures.

Enjoy











Exhaust came up nice after a polish









The interior came up pretty good aswell










Showing off the spoiler







As said before the aim was to get it back to new and them some...





























It wouldn't be finished without some nice photoshopped pictures to top it off.

Tell me what you think and whats your favourite.



1.



2.



3.



4.


1 & 4 are my favourites

Been a pleasure to work on the car really enjoyed the lines of the TT and the colour.

Thanks for reading everyone and comments would much appreciated.
