Detailer's Domain vs Audi RS4

This Audi RS4 was from a customer from the Audi Forums. Due to time constraints and a growing family the customer was not able to maintain the car like he use to himself.

This car needed much more than we predicted.
We had washed the car a total of 3 times before we could see what was really under all the grime, dirt, fall out, etc. A couple clay bars later we found the exterior needed quite a bit of work. Compounding (Menzerna Power Gloss) was necessary, followed by Menzerna Super Intensive Polish, and finally finishing out the paint with Menzerna PO85RD. Last step - Swissvax Divine.

Customer requested a light interior clean up.

What was done -
Exterior

- Wheels were prepped with P21S Wheel Gel and cleaned up with various brushes
- Tires were spritzed down with P21S Total Autowash and washed down
- Wheel wells were spritzed down with P21S Total Autowash and washed down
- Wash down and rinsed
- Door jambs were cleaned up
- Clayed
- Dried
- Paint inspected and measured
- Wheels protected with Swissvax Autobahn
- Tires dressed with Swissvax Pneu
- 3 Step Paint correction (PG, SIP, and PO85RD)
- Inspection with Fenix, 3m Sun Gun, Infratech, and natural sunlight
- Swissvax Divine
- Rubber and Plastics Treated
- Exterior windows and mirrors cleaned and sealed
- Exhaust tips cleaned

Interior Detail

- All interior surfaces cleaned and protected, including glass, and all
vinyl/plastic surfaces.
- Carpets and upholstery vacuumed.
