Default R8.....Coffee for anyone????

This was another car in my customers collection, when I first saw the car I was like that a weird looking black, I cant say I like that but When I brought this car outside the colour is something else. I enjoyed working on this car although there was it fair share of defects.

There was its fair share of defects in the paint, this would get a full correction and interior. Start with the wheels, i used Sonax for the wheels, great wheel cleaner

Various brushes were used to agitate the wheels

This is how they should look

I then gave the car a pre-rinse and then sprayed the car with P21s Auto Wash

I let the Auto Wash dwell for a few minutes before i foamed the car down with Dawn and GG Citrus Wash

Again that was left to dwell for several mintues and i used a swissvax brush to agitate trim pieces then washed with 2 bucket method

Then rinsed off before claying

The car was brought in and clayed with DI fine clay and DoDo Juice Born Slippy. I then blew the excess water off and dried the car

Onto the correction, I used several different combos on this car and tools, I used my flex and makita for this job

After couple passes with MF system, I was looking for more correction

I tried out the Tang pad/D300

50/50 trunk, I was achieving what i was looking for

Still hazy but defects were removed

After the compounding was done i went back over the car with Tang M205

I dressed the tires with Opti Bond and then moved onto the interior

I forgot to take a picture but i sealed the car with BLackfire. Heres the final shots

Thanks for viewing
