    Audi TT enhancement detail

    Before













    I started by snow foaming with Valet Pro PH Neutral snow foam and whilst this was working on the car I started on the wheels and arches, using bilberry on the wheels and various brushes to get them looking like new, the arches were cleaned using Megs Super Degreaser and a long handled brush, the car and arches were then pressure washed.






    The car was then given another coat of snow foam was then washed using the 2 bucket method, Megs Hyper wash and a lamb’s wool wash mitt. The car was then rinsed using a open ended hose, and whilst car was still wet it was clayed using Sonus ultra fine and Megs Last Touch used as a lube, not sure why but have no pics of the clay after use.

    The car was then rinsed and was dried using a Uber Premium drying towel and Megs last touch which once the car was clean and dry it gave me a better chance to see the condition of the paint

    The car was then taped up with 3m blue tape and polished using a Makita rotary and Menzerna 203 and a black 3m polishing pad.
















    The car was then snow foamed again to get rid of the polishing dust.



    Rinsed with a opened hose and pat dryed using a Uber Premium drying towel and Megs last touch.





    The car was then given 2 coats of Chemical guys WET MIRROR FINISH ULTRA SLICK NON-STICK GLOSS MAGNIFIER using a microfibre applicator pad by hand a buffed using uber microfiber cloths.












    The wheels were sealed with 2 coats of Jetseal 109 and the tyres dressed with Valet pro high gloss tyre dressing, arches dressed with Meguiar's Hyper-Dressing and the exhaust polished using 00 wire wool and Autosol metal polish.

    Before matey if you mean the first batch, i took readings from the full car and gave the owner a surprise as he didn`t know it had been painted bit of investigation whilst working round car and looked like its had a heavy bump at the front at some point in its life
