    Today saw me breathe a bit of life back into a stunning Daytona Grey Audi TTRS.


    This particular TTRS is in fact Milltek's ex-Demo Car, as seen in this vid:

    The owner picked this up from a TT Specialist a couple of weeks ago and brought it right over to me for inspection. It was littered with RDS's and needed a general machine polish to restore some life back into the paint.


    The owner also wanted some solid protection laying down and opted for Swissvax Crystal Rock.


    On to the detail...


    Upon arrival:

    Wheels, tyres and arches were dealt with first using Smart Wheels, G101, Swissvax, EZ and Vikan brushes:

    Then the car was snow foamed to begin breaking down the dirt/dust on the paintwork, using Bilt Hamber's excellent Auto Foam:

    The paintwork was then hand washed with Auto Finesse Lather and a CQuartz mitt, then rinsed and treated to IronX, which lifted very little fallout:

    Tardis was then used to clear up any tar spots, then the car was rinsed again and moved inside for claying:

    Very little was lifted, most of that which was seemed to be rubber, presumably from trackdays from its previous ownership.


    I then dried using a combination of:


    Uber Drying Towel:

    and Aeolus 901X:

    Next I began assessing the paintwork. I only had the car for a single day, so that aim was to tackle the deeper RDS as safely as possible and to give the car a single stage machine polish to remove any swirling.


    Some pics of the defects and correction:

    After the correction work, I tackled the interior using Auto Finesse Spritz, Auto Finesse Crystal and Zaino Z9:

    The wheels were protected with Zaino Z2P after an IPA wipedown:

    Not tried the Scholl range yet...still waiting to Shinearama to send me them :3sadwalk:

    Everyday it changes at the minute but definitely needs to be Daytona I think (hopefully its coming up this week for a test drive)

    It's a very good colour for hiding defects tbh - I'll probably go grey metallic next - IF I ever decide what to get :)
