The Detail Begins - Audi S3 (HD Video content inside)
I've taken some time off work in this lovely weather, purchased the entire range of G Techniq products (almost) and thought what better time to perform a Light Detail on the car.
The detail will take me approximately 4/5 days, in which I hope to achieve the best possible finish on the car. Taking my time on each stage and documenting it fully is what I intend to do, hopefully it will show how good the G Techniq product range is.
I've had paint depth gauge readings taken (last week) and they vary from 340 (obviously it's had paint at some point) to 150. I know how much I have to play with and am looking to remove the least amount of clear coat, while as I've already said getting the best possible results.
The main purpose of the detail is to remove minor swirls and marring and also to remove any products that have built up over the last 6 months. I intend to use the G Techniq products I purchased and want a perfectly clean surface for the C1 to bond with post polishing/refining stage, without the detail and subsequent removal of the products already on the car C1 will not bond to the surface and at £40 for 30ml it's not cheap to have to do it twice.
So to start with I have an HD Video (iPhone4) taken of the car's current state. I've just rinsed the car in the video and wanted to show the current protection level on the car. All the glass is currently wearing G Techniq G1 and therefore has no need of any work. I'm sure you'll agree G1 is very very hydrophobic.
The additional stages of the detail will come as they are completed, I want to take my time with this "final" detail of the S3, if it takes me a week then....it does!
