In time for the German car show tomorrow, I did a few mini details of some VW’s.
Firstly, a Mk2 GTI. The paint was in pretty good condition, so it was washed, clayed, wheels cleaned and tyres shined. I then applied 2 coats of Zaino, and applied sealant to the wheels. The leather was conditioned, and UV protectant applied to the trims and plastic, inside and outside.
Second, we have a black VW Golf R32.
The owner is bringing the car back for a full detail and paint correction soon, so I used natural Carnuba Wax as it looks better but doesn’t last as long. I cleaned the wheels, sealed them, conditioned the leather, blackened the tyres, clayed and degreased the car to remove the old wax. The car had a lot of swirls, due to poor washing technique and the fact that it is black!
The car has a really nice wet look to it now, and when the car is brought back for paint correction it will look even better – I will apply Zaino and top it off with Wax.
You can see some light swirls here, but overall the finish is nice and very wet.
