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.

Enjoy.

Products used:
Exterior:
Lusso AutoBathe
Uber Yellow Wash Sponge
Swissvax Yellow Clay Bar and Optimum Instant Detail Spray and Gloss Enhancer
Einszett Spray Wax
P21S Finish Restorer Metal Polish (on the tips)
Menzerna PO85RD
Collinite Insulator Wax
Swissvax Divine

Wheels and tires:
P21S Wheel Cleaner Gel
Swissvax Wheel Brush
Uber Wheel Brush
Uber Spoke Brush
Swissvax Pneu
Swissvax Autobahn

Tools:
Infratech 5300
Flex 3403
