Extensive Paint Correction Detail 2001 Audi S8

by Phil Yiu August 16, 2009

This was a huge undertaking. For 1 the car came to us with amazing gloss and depth, however when we went in to examine the car we found tons of imperfections on this 8 year old S8. The customer wanted this car to come out perfect, the total time to get this car right was 24 man hours. The exterior was washed, clayed, compound, polished, and finally Swissvax Divine was used to bring it out. Take a look and enjoy. Products Used: Exterior: Adam's All Purpose Cleaner in the Cam Spray Foam Canon Swissvax Paint Rubberand Optimum Instant Detail Spray and Gloss Enhancer for clay lube Menzerna Power Gloss Compound Menzerna Super Intensive with the Uber Green Pad Menzerna PO85RD with the Uber Blue Pad Menzerna Top Inspection Swissvax Divine Einszett Spray Wax Wheels/Tires/Etc Adam's All Purpose Einszett Wheel Cleaner Adam's VRT Uber Boar's Hair Wheel Brush Swissvax Wheel Brush Swissvax Autobahn Adam's Undercarriage Spray Adam's Glass Cleaner Interior: Uber Interior Kit Leather Master Foam Cleaner for Suede/Alcantara Leather Master Nubuck Protector Tools: Fenix TK11 Brinkmann MaxFire Metabo PE12-175 Flex 3403 The Uber Foam Pads (5.5inch) Tons of "Uber" Microfiber Towels Uber Drying Towels Cam Spray 1500A with Cam Spray Foam Gun Let's get the interior shots in first: Cleaning up the alcantara and protecting it Final shots Wash and Prep: Wax build up Etching in the paint more wax/old polish build up Pre soak and cleaning up trim Cleaning up the wheels (not much needed) Engine Before Cleaning the engine bay All Purpose wash Claying Masking Testing the area for paint thickness and plan of attack Polishing Before shots of passenger door Different angles Halogen after PG/SIP/PO85RD Fenix light on panel after PO85RD After all that polishing.....
