    Hi guys, thanks for checking out another write up!

    Here we have a Sprint Blue RS4 in for a correction after the owner admitted he’s not been able to give it the attention he wanted to over the winter! It needed a tidy up and it was booked in for a 4 day correction plus a deep leather cleanse and interior detail.

    I’ll get right into the write up... the pictures do the talking a lot better than me! I’ll start with the interesting part, the actual correction!

    So here it is on the lift, mid way through the correction

    The audi clear coat needs quite hefty correction combo to see much of a difference. On this car I used a 3 stage machine polish technique to get some brilliant results! I used a gloss it wool pad/festool wool pad with Menzerna S500. Then I moved onto a Chemical guys yellow polishing hex-logic pad using Menzerna Intensive polish. Then to refine the finish, I used a 3m finishing pad and Menzerna 106 ff (final finish). In between all these steps, I used regular IPA wipe downs to make a true assessment of how the paint was responding to each polishing step.
    Some areas of the car needed 2 to 3 passes due to me regulating heat or depending on the shape of the panel. I removed roughly 4-6 microns on average and up to 8-9 on some sanding marks.....as you will see later on.

    So...after the polishing and IPA wipe down.

    The dog was even impressed!

    More of the correction on the driver's side.

    Now, onto the sanding marks!

    [​IMG]

    This seems to be an area where the paint shop didn’t quite mask off enough when painting the bonnet and front wings in the past!

    So, first up was to measure the paint and get cracking with the wool pad!

    [​IMG]

    Once we had done one pass, it was time for another IPA wipe down

    [​IMG]

    AS you can see, there is still evidence of the marks. It is improved, but not quite good enough.

    [​IMG]

    So, I gave it another pass. This removed a total of about 8 microns here... this left this...

    [​IMG]

    The camera is very very very close to give you an idea of how slight the marks were. The sanding paper was very coarse hence leaving deep marks

    [​IMG]

    There is barely anything left and even under the metal halide lights you can barely notice it! With the 8 microns that had been removed, I decided it was a brilliant result! ;)
    Then it was onto the polishing after the wool pads.

    After the polishing, this is how it’s looking! It still needs refining here. It has been wiped down with IPA too

    Refining...

    [​IMG]

    Once the majority of the major correction was done, it was time to attack the intricate areas with smaller pads.

    The RS4's have very prominent sills which attract a lot of scuffs due to people banging their shoes on them. I used wool on these too as they’re plastic to keep the heat down but achieve good correction levels.

    [​IMG]

    Once the wool was done, I switched to a Swissvax finishing pad to refine the finish.

    [​IMG]

    Some 50/50s on the sills

    Once the correction was done, the car was dusted down and I started about the finishing touches. The interior was done without the camera I’m afraid (I left my SD card at home, and its 8 miles away haha)

    The glass was cleaned with Swissvax crystal

    [​IMG]

    The leather was cleaned with Swissvax leather cleaner. The carpets were extracted and protected with 303 fabric guard.

    The dash was wiped clean with a damp MF and then treated with Jeff's Satin Prot.

    [​IMG]

    The seals on the outside of the car were dressed with Swissvax Seal feed

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The car was waxed with Swissvax Best of Show. The car received two cars of this, and afterwards....WOW!!!

    Here we see the waxed being buffed with A Swissvax Micro polish cloth.

    Leaving this finish.....

    More of that later!

    The wheels and tyres were scrubbed, polished and sealed with Swissvax Pneu and Swissvax Autobahn.

    I think that pretty much covers it! Here are the after shots!

    Enjoy!
