Audi RS4 - Full Exterior/Interior Detail

by Phil Yiu December 19, 2009

This Audi RS4 was from a customer from the Audi Forums. Due to time constraints and a growing family the customer was not able to maintain the car like he use to himself. This car needed much more than we predicted. We had washed the car a total of 3 times before we could see what was really under all the grime, dirt, fall out, etc. A couple clay bars later we found the exterior needed quite a bit of work. Compounding (Menzerna Power Gloss) was necessary, followed by Menzerna Super Intensive Polish, and finally finishing out the paint with Menzerna PO85RD. Last step - Swissvax Divine. Customer requested a light interior clean up. What was done - Exterior - Wheels were prepped with P21S Wheel Gel and cleaned up with various brushes - Tires were spritzed down with P21S Total Autowash and washed down - Wheel wells were spritzed down with P21S Total Autowash and washed down - Wash down and rinsed - Door jambs were cleaned up - Clayed - Dried - Paint inspected and measured - Wheels protected with Swissvax Autobahn - Tires dressed with Swissvax Pneu - 3 Step Paint correction (PG, SIP, and PO85RD) - Inspection with Fenix, 3m Sun Gun, Infratech, and natural sunlight - Swissvax Divine - Rubber and Plastics Treated - Exterior windows and mirrors cleaned and sealed - Exhaust tips cleaned Interior Detail - All interior surfaces cleaned and protected, including glass, and all vinyl/plastic surfaces. - Carpets and upholstery vacuumed.
