Audi A4 Avant S-Line Paint Xfer Removal

Sorry about the delay between write ups, a very much needed laptop upgrade alongside being busy has not helped!

A job based at my unit in Waddesdon, Aylesbury Bucks: The vehicle in question is an Audi A4 Avant S-Line in much need of a 1-step machine enhancement and protection; plus some paint transfer to be removed from the drivers side front door and bump strip where a white van clipped the vehicle in a car park!

The package performed on this vehicle was Gold.

The scratch/paint transfer in question:

First up were the alloy wheels.

Alloys de-ironising after a non-acidic wheel brightener. Once cleansed the alloys were protected with a high durability wheel wax – the tyres were treated as were the arches.

Next up was to treat the vehicle to an extensive wash and decontamination process, including snow foam:

Nooks & crannies agitated with a soft haired brush…

Once “cleaned” it was time for the final step of decontamination using the clay bar to remove any remaining bonded contaminants.

Light contamination removed from the bonnet:

Whilst the expected heavier contamination removed from the boot:

All paint transfer removed, 1-step enhancement machine polish removed light swirls and holograms with deeper random deep scratches and swirls remaining, which is the nature of such details where defects are heavy. A 2+ day correction would have been ideal to remove the deeper imperfections (Platinum/Diamond Packages).

Once the polishing once completed it was time to applied protection in the form of Valentines Concours Wax, along with the plastics/rubbers and glasswork being treated.
