ABC Detailing - Ibis White Audi TT Brand New Car Dealership Protection Detail



A few months ago I was contacted by a customer to detail a brand new Audi TT before collection, so I arranged to do the detail at Audi in Swindon on Saturday, with the car being picked up at the end of the day.


I had a valeting bay reserved for the day and a space in the brand new workshop with a lift, which I could definitely get used to!

A few befores of the car; was very clean as expected with only 9 miles on the clock!







Getting on with the wheels; As usual I used Bilberry and various brushes.





On to the bodywork; the remaining wraps were removed and the car was pre-soaked with AF Citrus.


The rear panels were quite dirty as they weren't wrapped for transit, which shows up later during the decontamination.




The car was then washed with GWash and the Merino wash mitt.


All clean! The valeters next door had done about 30 cars in the time I finished...



Next up was decontamination.

Auto Finesse Iron Out


Quite a bit of fallout must have attached during transport.







It became quite obvious where the wraps hadn't been covering the car!


2 more hits followed to minimise the need for clay.



Next up was Tardis.


Nothing major came of the first hit so it was onto very mild claying (to reduce the risk of marring new paint), which didn't pick anything up worth mentioning because of the touchless decontamination beforehand.





After drying off in the drying bay(!) the car was moved inside for a Panel Wipe wipedown ready for Gtechniq protection.



The interior was then given some attention.





Up the car went to C5 the wheels!



Tyres finished with Meguiars Endurance.


Trims were protected with Nanolex Trim Sealant.


Before on the left, after on the right



Engine bay and arches sealed with 303 Aerospace.




Exhaust pipes were wiped down and C5'd.

Before


After


Windows cleaned with AF Crystal and a Microfibre Madness 'Cloudbuster', followed by G1 application.



LSP was C1 finished with C2v3.




Finished up with around 15 minutes before the car was due for collection, so the car was moved into the handover bay.












All wrapped up at 4:55pm for a 5pm pickup.


A thoroughly enjoyable detail on a brilliant car, the owner was very happy indeed!

Wow excellent finish there ABC
As you say love the environment to work in!

This would be my perfect detail - if I swapped the car for an R8!

Cool
