MK5 Volkswagen golf R32 serious enhancement detail.

Post by scottbt » Sun Feb 27, 2011 9:42 pm

This was quoted a couple of weeks back. First inspection using PTG and Brinkmann toughmax torch, vehicle looked to of had a few little bits of paintwork and maybe a machine polish in its life. Genrally, it looked light in swirling. How wrong could I be? Really wrong, thats how wrong!
On with the culprit...

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Looks like an average car that has been driven.

Wheels cleaned using Autosmart smartwheels followed by Meguiars wheel brightner for caked on brake debris and aggitated with Valetpro non scratch brush and long reach wheel brush and rinsed thoughly then wheel nut caps removed as these were previously stained by strong cleaners. These were tidied up later...

Image

Image

Image

Prepared with a pre-soaking of all lowers / arches / wheels / tyres / badges / door shuts with Meguiars all purpose cleaner and aggitated with various brushes then rinsed thoughly...

Image

Image

2 bucket method wash with z sponge and Valetpro concentrated car shampoo...

Image

Image

Rinsed then de-tarred with Autosmart tardis. Finally, clay treatment came in the guis of Dodo Juice supernatural clay and born slippy as lube. Contamination was average...

Image

Rinsed then dried using Autosmart waffle towels and Autosmart tango as drying aid.

Image

Now for the best part...

Image

Lets get closer...

Image

Ouch!

Image

Image

Image

Time for tape and a little tester on combination for this little beauty. Straight in with my favourite combination 3M yellow polishing pad and Scholl concepts S17+. First hit was ok, second was better, third was like this...

Image

Combination was a major thing as this was 1 day enhancement detail. The clocks ticking.

Bonnet after various hits with the afore mentioned combination...

Image

Image

Image

Much nicer with some crisp reflections.
Carrying on through the motions, again, some nice 50 / 50 shots to show juts how much was achieved...

Image

Closer...

Image

Much better for sure. Now, the gloss pillars were tricky and required numerous hits using Scholl concepts S17+ with Planet Polish blue and green spot pads.
Before...

Image

After. Much better but not perfect admitedly...

Image

Pressing on. Bit of flake pop from the tailgate...

Image

Drivers wing before...

Image

Mid process, see the colour variantion between the left ( untouched ) and right ( enhanced ) sides...

Image

After...

Image

Image

A slight issue brought to my attention whilst working on the car was a fade on the drivers door where there has been a repair and faded out into the wing. Another issue which I was shocked by was how easy the paint was marring in certain areas. Tar was removed so I had put this down to various bits of paintwork that the car has recieved during its life. Both the fade was restored and the clay marring removed to reveal some nice crisp reflections.

All polishing was finished up and first layer of supernatural wax and smart wax rimwax were applied and left to cure whilst I moved onto repainting the wheels nut covers ( This was from one side only ).
Before...

Image

And much better with 2 coats of sating matt black paint...

Image

First layer of supernatural and rimwax removed and tended to various tasks such as tail pipes polished with Britemax twins and 00 wire wool. Trims dressed with Autosmart trim wizzard, glass cleaned inside and out with Meguiars glass cleaner concentrate, glass further sealed with Permanon RTU glass cleaner / sealant. Tyres dressed with 2 coats of Autosmart higstyle , arches dressed, door shuts polished. At this point second layer of supernatural was applied along with second layer of rimwax and left to cure. Interior was cleaned with various brushes, Meguiars all purpose cleaner and vacced thoughly. Wax and wheel sealant removed again and wheel nut covers refitted. A nice coffee break and ready for the Dodo Juice remist tropical wipe down and inspection outdoors...

Cheers guys. Yes 1 day. 10 hours and a little help with the interior ( which was already tidy ) and final tweeks. Ive had a number of comments elsewhere about the time scale and tbh, if folks stopped messing around, supping tea / eating bacon buttys, taking more pictures than actually working rather than doing what they are paid for, chances are, the jobs would be done far more timely :lol:
