2009 VW Jetta – Full Paint Restoration and Detail with Modesta BC-05 Paint Protection – Part 2

Thanks for the patience guys, been an absolutely hectic Christmas period for us, but we do have some gems coming up, including a Cayman, and M3 and an MX-5!

Behold the final pictures of the Jetta. Needless to say the owner was stunned, and I’m sure his wife will be very happy with her new wedding present! We’ve also included a list of products we used on this car to show the amount of work involved!

Time to apply the Modesta:

It was quite late:

We were done by the next morning and some quick shots of the interior. To us, the interior transformation in terms of look and smell was incredible. Thanks to the Optimum Protectant, the interior now smelt brand new, fresh, and was protected from damaging UV rays. Head to www.zas.com.au to grab yourself a bottle!

We also used CarPro Dlux to restore the plastics. Checkout the before (right) and after!

And the finished results of the Modesta were outstanding. This was merely the icing on the cake, we had managed to correct the car to 100% so not a single swirl was visible!

Not a scratch, but those clouds….

And it begins, you can see a few raindrops on the car!

The customer wanted the car dropped off at the airport, as he was flying out that day and wanted the car ready for his wife. He also wanted to wrap the car with a ribbon, and we made him promise he would only use a silk ribbon to avoid marring the paint! We were happy to drop the car off at the airport, but we could see clouds looming, and it was a race against the clouds to drop the car off!

Not looking good…

Luckily we beat the rain, and the car was now sitting in the carpark, awaiting her new owner!

I’m sure she will love it!
