Volkswagen Golf R32 mkiv Major Paint Correction Detail I was invited over by Jonny from Pure Detail again in the North West to lend a helping hand on the Golf. It was booked for his purest detail; a wheels-off, full interior, engine bay and major paint correction. On the first day Jonny had deep cleaned the car in readiness for my arrival early Thursday morning Thurs & Fri were spent machine polishing and then the interior, engine and arches etc tackled last thing Saturday morning. After a 5am start and a two hour journey, I arrive at PD HQ: Although it hasnt got many miles on the clock (~35k), the Golf paintwork was rather abused! Two words, car wash. It was obvious were going to have to go aggressive with this one. My first before/after on the bonnet: Two hard hits were required with FastCut+ and Ultrafina on a foamed wool Lake Country pad to get the desired results. Jonny testing the Lake Country wool pad before moving onto his own Meguiars wool pads: After Id corrected the N/S quarter of the bonnet with wool, I stepped down to a foam polishing pad with Menzerna 203s to refine the finish further. 50/50: Working my way down the N/S. Before/after: Wing/door 50/50: Before/After: The large wool pads are all well and good but youre unable to get in close to panel edges etc. Further correction had to be made with the 3M compounding spot pad ensuring every area was defect free. Before (where the wool pad wouldnt reach safely) And after with the spot pad work: A nice 50/50 on the N/S rear door: Probably the worst area on the car was the roof. Riddled with defect but several scratches that were far too deep to remove.
