VW Touran Paint correction detail with Opti-Coat 2.0 LSP

Good evening, another paint correction detail carried out at our Gosport Unit here in sunny (ahem) Hampshire.

Now those that follow us on Twitter and Facebook (please do!) will have no doubt seen the moaning that's been done about this car. Make no mistake it was a car from hell to detail and took 5 days (yes 5) of correction to get it to the end point. No, still not 100% but as close to it as time, patience and will power would allow! Even my Flex was moaning so it got sent for a service straight after this detail......

The car was washed, clayed etc as per normal then I set about doing a test section.



I chose the bonnet as my test section!





After I battled I thought I better take some before's, and also shows the bonnet section after the tests were done. Yes I know the tyres are dressed but I've not messed up the order (yet!) I promise.

















OK, so back indoor to set up the lights and crack on with the serious task in hand. Pads...Megs yellow polishing with Scholl S3 Gold, followed by Megs black buffing and menzerna 85RE to refine. In between wiped down with our own Eraser style mix, and Eraser itself to make sure no filling is going on here. True corrections only.







































50/50 on the roof



Once the correction was completed (yes really 5 days) the car was de-dusted, wiped down thoroughly with Eraser and eraser-like product ready to apply the Opti-Coat 2.0 which was applied and allowed to cure over night.

The following lunchtime, the car was wiped down gently and brought outside to inspect the end result of this paint correction detail.



Not too shabby



Yes a definate improvement perhaps....





Back indoors for some final bits



Nanolex glass treatment, topped with the amazing Glass Ultra



Add the numberplates, kind of gives the game away















Now I have broken my own golden rule doing this car, I never normally correct my own cars. Detail yes but correct no! That way when people say "oh you've got swirls" I can say with a clear conscience I dont correct my cars! This time I cant

It was a tough assignment no joking, but each panel was taking 5+ hits, and hard hits at that to remove the marks but I think you'll agree it was worth it.

Best wishes

Tim

Wow, the 50/50's really show the difference. The paint looks like glass and the gloss is top notch. Great job.
