    unfortunately pics of the drivers door and wing didnt come out well but the rest of the panels were corrected the same
    way as the rest of the car.
    lamb wool and FG500, 85rd 3.02, then 85RD to refine the finish on the car.
    car was then wiped down with an ipa before DoDo blue velvet was applied to the car to protect it.
    all trim cleaned and treated, interior cleaned, door shuts cleaned with lime prime and waxed with blue velvet
    engine bay cleaned and treated. customer also wanted the brake calipers painted black, new wipers fitted and
    new aluminium tax disk fitted.
    finished and then outside ready to be picked up.

    Had this A3 booked in on the weekend for a full correction, car was in quite a state as the owner said the car had been left
    standing for a long time and is only recently back on the road so the owner wanted her A3 looking like new again.
    door shuts and all gaps cleaned with APC and various brushes, car was then snow foamed and washed via 2 buckets.

    car was then put inside to commence on the inspection of the paint and to take readings

    started off on the N/S wing first and was surprised at how bad the swirls and defects were
    time to break out lamby and FG500 i think, tried one hit with 85RD 3.02 but wasnt effective enough to remove the defects.

    good results from the trusty lamb and FG500
    this is the boot i wanted to try out as it was the end of day one and as i had the car late in the day we planned
    a full on attack the next day to finish off the machine work
