2005 A4 S-LINE - AKOYA SILVER
I finally got a couple of days to give my car a proper going-over. The weather held out over the weekend with only a couple of minor rain breaks. I didnít have time to try and get before pics of swirls on silver in the daylight Ė not the easiest thing to do.
Megs polishing pad and Menzerna 3.02 removed a fair bit of swirling but 3M Fast Cut Plus on the Megs pad was just the ticket. Every part of the car was cut with this combo under moderate pressure and then given a good bit of refinement with Menzerna 85RD on a 3M finishing pad with no extra hand pressure.
The 85RD produced a superior and noticeable heightening of the gloss to the silver. I donít see any point in not finishing with 85RD Ė silver needs that little bit of extra encouragement for the clearcoat to shine above the colour itself.
Pleased with the finish and glad I got to put the time into it. Now I just have to look to get some extra layers of the Werkstat on over the next couple of months.
Then out for some other photos in poor light:
