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
