Dolphin Gray A6 2.7t exterior and engine detail

This was from about 3-4 weeks ago if I recall, maybe longer. Take a look.

The condition of the car was pretty good, this A6 needed a good wash, clay, polish and some sealant.

Engine no too bad but still needed some work.

1. Rinsed down the wheels (they were cool enough to touch)
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. Rinse the car down
6. Used the foamgun (Adam's Car Wash) to apply soap, let it sit and then
7. Used the Shmitt to wash the car, from top to hood to sides to rear.
8. Rinse car off throughly
9. Since there was no sun out and it was cool, I sprayed Adam's Detail Spray on the panels and proceeded to clay the car (Adam's Clay Bar) after each panel and each window was clayed I used the WW Drying Towel to wipe the excess detail spray off.
10. Car is clayed and dried.
11. Used the Metabo with the Menzerna 106ff to polish out all the minor imperfections.
12. After each section was corrected I buffed off the excess polish with a MF Buffing Towel.
13. Proceeded to polished out the headlights and tail lights with the 106.
14. With a MF Towel I buffed off the Menzerna 106 from the lights.
15. Applied Swissvax Cleaner Fluid and removed with MF Towel
16. Applied Swissvax Onyx let sit for 10-13 minutes and buffed with MF Towel
17. Cleaned up the windows with Adam's Glass Cleaner (interior/exterior)
18. Applied Adam's BSG on the windows to give it that nice mirrored look.
19. Dressed the tires with Adam's VRT (did one pass on the applicator and did a pass using the dry side as the customer prefers a matte finish)
20. Used Adam's Detail Spray to do a final wipe down on the wheels.
21. Used the 1Z Detail Spray for a final wipe down on the car.


Engine cleaning was done after the wheels, as the engine was still warm
1. Rinsed down the engine
2. Sprayed some P21S Autowash on the engine
3. Brushed the dirt and grime off the engine with a boar's hair brush
4. Sprayed down engine to rinse the P21S off
5. Closed the hood and started up the car. Run the engine for a few minutes.
6. After claying the car came back to the engine to dressed it with Adam's In and out and wiped down the excess with a detailing sponge. Finished with the engine.

Here are the pictures enjoy:
