VW Golf R - System X Ceramic Coating - detailR - Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire

This lovely Tornado Red MK7 Golf R came in for some swirl removal and long term protection.

The car was a fairly recent purchase for the owner and although it looked tidy enough, the haze across the paint was robbing it of gloss and clarity.

The order of the detail...

Wheels, tyres and arches cleaned.
Full Auto Finesse safe wash.
Decontamination - tar removal, iron fallout removal, clay bar and IPA wipe down.
Major Enhancement - multi-stage machine polish.
System X Pro ceramic coating applied to the paint work.
System X pro applied to the wheel faces.
SunTek Ultra PPF applied to the rear bumper deck/loading area.
Exterior glass sealed with System X.
Interior cleaned and leather conditioned.

The car on arrival.

A few paint touch ups.

The existing bumper protection was brittle and lifting.

This was carefully removed and the area prepared for a new piece of SunTek self healing PPF.

The whole car was then refined, prior to the ceramic coating.

The new PPF cut and fitted.

Thanks Darren!
Yeah, the brushes are great. You could clean your eye balls with the Albino brush
