Detailer's Domain: Audi A4 Sline New Car prep and 3M PPF

Here is a 2010 Audi A4 Sline, the customer requested the dealer not to prep the car. The dealer only took off the white film and packaging from Audi. We had a great surface to work with all that was required was to degrease some of the spots from the normal driving, a good claying, 1 step polish with Menzerna PO85RD and finally Collinite Insulator Wax with Swissvax Divine to top it.

As well as a new car prep the customer requested that we install a 3M PPF (custom cut) on his bumper, partial hood and fender, and mirrors.
