A detail I did today

Hey all its me once again I'm hoping I get a few of these in every week.

Back at KMD Tuning again for the owner Danny's 2000 S4 widebody with RS4 engine/Dahlback Tuned. Some of you may have seen it in magazines or at the shop or Waterfest.

Went over for a quick spring clean up 1 step polish and sealant.

Products used:

Adam's Car Wash

Shmitt Wash mitt and Shmitt Wheel mitt
2 Buckets with grit guard
Jumbo Waffle Weave Drying Towel
Microfiber Buffing Towels
Boar's Hair Brush
Adam's VRT
Adam's Glass Cleaner
Adam's Detail Spray
Menzerna PO85RD
Menzerna FMJ
P21S Wheel Cleaner Gel
Metabo with White Edge Pad
Foam Gun
Edge Pads Dual sides (6 inch)
Edge Pads 2000 (4 inch)

1. Rinsed down the wheels (they were cool)
2. Sprayed down the wheels with some P21S Wheel Cleaner
3. Brush and cleaned the wheels with a Boar's Hair Brush
4. Rinsed down the wheels
5. Rinsed down the car
6. Loaded up the foam gun with Adam's Car Wash and sprayed the car down.
7. A great trick I use is to squeeze some Adam's car wash on the Shmitt giving it more suds as you clean. Going from top to bottom I typically go clean the roof then go to the bucket and rinse the Shmitt hitting the grit guard to make sure its clean for the next section (repeat this till the car is done) do this more frequently as you get to the bottom of the car and the back of the trunk/rear bumper.
8. Rinse car off throughly, I just took the foam gun off and just rinsed the car with the flooding method.
9. Dried car with WW Drying Towel.
10. With the car all dried up I got Danny to drive the beast in to the bay, under the lights the car had some very minor issues, light scratches, black top need some work, and the carbon fiber hood as well.
11. Got out the Metabo with the white pad and Menzerna PO85RD and started with the trunk (speed was 700-1200 rpm) couple passes and that's all I needed to get it perfect!
12. Proceed to finish up the car with the 4inch and 6 inch pads with the Metabo (love this machine) The 4 inch pads give you more control and precision on the tight spots that you work on and on the fender flares and especially the back of the trunk!
13. Buffed off the 85RD
14. Applied the FMJ
15. Cleaned up the windows with Adam's Glass Cleaner
16. Dressed the tires with Adam's VRT
17. Used Adam's Detail Spray to do a final wipe down on the car and the wheels.
(clay was not needed in this spring clean up, and wheels will have to be taken off to do a complete detail closer to show season.)
Enjoy the pics!

My favorite shot of the day:

Looks good. I've noticed that no matter what, it's always hard to get real depth out of silver when detailing.

Another Great Job
"To become a member of a crew you've got to be 100% Italian so they can trace all your relatives back to the old country. See, it's the highest honor they can give you. It means you belong to a family and crew. It means that nobody can [email protected] around with you. It also means you could [email protected] around with anybody just as long as they aren't also a member. It's like a license to steal. It's a license to do anything"
