Audi TT Detail - detailR - Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire

This 10 year old mk2 Audi TT came in as a recommendation from a local VAG specialist.
The car is in very good shape, but the dull paintwork was letting it down a little.

It was decided that a Major Enhancement Detail would be carried out to remove as many defects as possible while preserving the original paintwork - followed by System X Crystal ceramic coating to protect the finish for up to 3 years.

The order of the detail,

Full Auto Finesse safe wash process.
Decontamination - tar removal, iron fallout removal, clay bar and IPA wipe down.
Major Enhancement Detail - multi stage machine polish.
System X Crystal ceramic coating applied to the paintwork and wheel faces.
Glass coated With System X Glass.

The car on arrival.

The car was taken inside to be clayed, panel wiped to see the true state of the paintwork - then onto the machine polishing stages.

(Photos are after cutting - the finish will be refined further)

Unfortunately, the paint was broken so this could only be tidied up.

It was great to work on such a well looked after example and take years off of its appearance.

Thanks for reading

Richard.
