JD_SS and I were back at it again this past Saturday, this time getting an Audi A3 ready for winter!

APC

DS

We could see ahead of time that we had a bit of work on our hands, given the hard water stains, the swirl marks, and the sad looking exhaust tips. We started out the day by giving the wheels and tires a fair amount of attention, and they responded nicely! From there it was onto the engine bay, then onto the was. 3oz. of APC mixed into the Foam Gun that already had water and Car Shampoo in it. Then dry it with a DS mist and the Blaster and a Great White Drying Towel. The Claybar then got busted out, knocked it out, and JD and I moved onto correcting and polishing the paint! I think it turned out very nice!

 

Thanks for looking,

Mook

Thanks for doing the writeup Mook. I think that Audi looked great! Great job! Standing there admiring it after the detail, you might start to consider getting one as a DD!

 

I will say that the piece de resistance was the exhaust tip turn around.

Fantastic recovery!!:2thumbs:

 

Curious how you got that rainbow effect? :D

 

Thank You! I have no idea how that little rainbow shows up. It's not in all the pictures only in some, and usually inside something really shiney....weird!

Looks great.

 

I have a question about the exhaust tips, I've noticed Dylan uses 0000 steel wool when he does his details, is this necessary for all exhaust tips? Or is this only necessary for pitted/exhaust soot tips?

I think it's only necessary when you don't think metal #1 and #2 can get the job done. EDIT* Although now I'm not exactly sure. Looks like Mook used it on the GCSRT8 too, and I didn't think those tips were too bad. But I could be wrong...

I'll let him weigh in!

Four-Ott (.0000) Steel Wool is amazing when combined with APC or MP #1 when trying to clean and polish cruddy tips!

 

I soak the tip down with APC, scrub @ it a bit with a chunk of the steel wool, use an Edgeless Towel to wipe dry, then take another chunk of the steel wool and add some MP #1 to it, and begin to apply that to the area. Once I feel it's "cleaned" enough, I usually attack it one more time with MP #1 on a Revive Applicator, then follow with MP#2 on a separate Revive Applicator, thus making faces melt all across the land!

 

Bring me some Ale!

Have you looked outside today?

 

Great work guys!

 

Nice save Chris and JD as always outstanding, got to love black paint. I'm driving my 5th black car, and still love the color. :glasses:

 

Thanks! I love black paint! I don't know what the fuss is about it! :rockon:

 

 

David, it's still freezing cold here, but that doesn't stop me! I need my therapy!
