Detailer's Domain: Epic Audi S4 Widebody Paint Correction/PPF Install

This car belongs to a customer that has always brought his cars to the next level, this is a 2002 Audi S4 Avant that was converted to an RS4 using all factory parts coming from Germany. Besides the body work the engine and trans are from the B5 RS4. The list goes on......

So what did he need done after the tuning shop and body shop the car needed to look perfect. A full paint correction and clear film install was done.

We wrapped:

1. A pillars
2. Side skirts
3. Hood
4. Full Front Fenders
5. Rear flares
6. Top of rear bumper
7. Full Front bumper
8. Gas Cap
9. Strip in front of the sunroof
10. Door Handles

The total time this took was 72 hours with the 3 of us, me, Dan, and Tommy. Late nights for 3 days straight to get this car done in time for his road trip.

What was done -

- Wheels were prepped and cleaned
- Tires were spritzed down with P21S Total Autowash and washed down

- Inspection with Fenix, 3m Sun Gun, Infratech, and natural sunlight

Take a look


This car was washed over 5 times to remove the glaze off it.
First we used Adam's Car Wash then presoaked again with W99.

Insane amount of glaze..Take a look at all that glaze off gassing after a few washes.

Another pre-soak with W99



After rinse and clay


Measuring the Paint

Action Shots

Inspecting the paint with the Fenix

Great shot of the front fender jeweled out and door with PO85RD
