Detailer's Domain: Audi TT/Swissvax Divine

This was a detail that I tried to book with an Audiworld member 2 1/2 years ago but we just never could get a date.

Anyway this car needed some TLC. Tons of swirls and light scratches as this is the customer's daily driver and unfortunately it sits outside 365 days a year.

So we cleaned it up with Menzerna Power Gloss compound with an orange ccs pad followed it with Menzerna SIP with a white pad and then finished with Menzerna PO85RD with a blue pad. For our last step we used Swissvax cleaner fluid to prep the paint for Swissvax Divine.

Tools and products used:
Take a look:

Optimum Power Clean
Optimum Instant Detail Spray
P21S Autowash
P21S Wheel Cleaner Gel
Adam's Undercarriage Spray
Adam's Metal 1 and 2
Menzerna Power Gloss Compound
Menzerna SIP
Menzerna PO85RD
Menzerna Top Inspection
Swissvax Paint Rubber
Swissvax Quick Finish
Swissvax Cleaner Fluid
Swissvax Divine
Swissvax Autobahn (for the wheels)
Swissvax Pneu (for the tires)
Adam's In and Out


Infratech 5300
Makita 9227 Hi Speed Rotary
LC Orange Pad
LC CCS White Pad
LC CCS Blue Pad
Tons of "Uber" Microfiber Towels
Uber Drying Towels
Detailer's Domain "Uber" Wool Mitt
Ace Powersticks
Cam Spray 1500A with Cam Spray Foam Gun
3m Masking Tape (green)

Here are the pictures:

The wash with Optimum Power Clean to remove any on the paint.

The wheels BBS LM's always a classic!

I always hated TT's but the BBS really make it look great, another great detail as usual
"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"
