Audi R8 V10 plus Detail Session

Post by SLC Detailing » Mon Jul 03, 2017 9:24 am

Today I had he pleasure of detailing an Audi R8 V10 Plus. It's and absolutely stunning car and the carbon fibre is unreal. The owner Mark has been a customer of mine for many years but this is the first time I have got my hands on his R8. This was the process:

- Snowfoamed using Bilthamber PH neutral snow foam
- Jet washed down and then washed with the two bucket method and meguairs gold class shampoo
- Alloys cleaned using Koch Wheel Cleaner agitated where needed and rinsed thoroughly. Alloys later sealed with Fusso sealent. Inner arches washed and then sealed using Chemical Guys bare bones uncarriage protectant
- Tyres dresses using Tac systems tyre dressing
- Bodywork cleansed using Zaino All In one paint cleaner
- Glass polished using Carlack all in one inside and out
- All outer trims such air intake grills and front grill dressed using autoglym vinyl and rubber care
- Door shuts cleaned and sealed with Fusso soft 99 sealent
- inner door trims dressed wth Autoglym Vinyl and rubber cars
- Exhaust using tac systems clay cloth and then poloshed using Autosol metal polish
- Paintwork treated to two coats of Fusso Soft 99 sealent
- Engine bay cleaned and dressed. Carbon fibre covers polished using car lack.
- Boot compartment and scuttle panel fully dressed using Autoglym Vinyl and Rubber care.

In all the process took me around 6 hours. Here are some pics of how it looked:
