Detailer's Domain: Audi Q5 - Winter Prep with a twist - Tar Removal
Posted by Administrator on 12/20/2011 to Our Details
Last week I received a call from a customer regarding some tar/paint on his wife's new Audi Q5. I didn't really know what to expect.
When they drove by to get a quote I realized this was going to take some time to clean up.

Well it definitely took some time.

Take a look.

This includes:

- Wheels were prepped with Sonax Wheel Cleaner and cleaned up with various brushes
- Tires were spritzed down with Adam’s All Purpose Cleaner and washed down
- Wheel wells were cleaned up
- Pre Washed with W99
- Decon
- Wash down and rinsed
- Door jambs were cleaned up
- Clayed
- Dried
- Tires dressed
- Last Step – 1Z einszett Glanz
- Wheel wells were cleaned and dressed
- Rubber and Plastics Treated
- Exterior windows and mirrors cleaned and sealed
- Exhaust tips cleaned
- Windows were clayed, cleaned, and sealed - Wolf's Glass Guard

Interior

Before shots -
Road tar and paint on the driver's side fender, doors, bumpers, side skirts, wheel well covers (complete left side)
We had to use a combination of Meg's Body Solvent, Stoner's Tarminator, and 3M Adhesive Remover. (16 oz of Body Solvent, 1 Can of Tarminator, 3 cans of 3M Adhesive Remover)
