Audi A5 - Light the Skyes !

An interesting topic name for a very dear (to me) detail job.

The car in question is an A5 - sportback i guess it's called. I'm not much a fan of german engineering but this car really has the looks.

What I liked about the car was the S-line bodykit, which in my oppinion fits it perfectly.

The initial condition :

Wash & Clay Process, using the usual

2BM - CG Maxi Suds II

Sonax Full Efect

CG Grime Raper

Clearcote Red Moose - paint cleaner

Wheels :

Sonax Spray :

On the lower half of the door I sprayed CG Green Clean and left it to do its thing for 5 mins or so

After the wash & drying, the car looked like this. I did not took any pics during the wash because it began to get really hot and the water was drying very very fast

Being a car that has been well cared, the clay did not lift any dirt from the paint, so I decided to use a paint cleaner to do the job.

The correction was made in only one step using a finish combo (106FA on a 3M blue pad). 3/4 passes on the horozontal panels and, 5/6 on the laterals of the car. After that, the final result was acchieved using a red LC pad and 85rd, with very light pressure and slow passing speed.

Before the correction i did a IPA wipedown on all the car in order to remove the remains of the paint cleaner

Some of the few pics i took on the correction stage.

The only way I could get the camera to focus was to insert the antena in the pic ;)

We needed to open the garage door in order to get one of the cars out, an opportunity for me to take some sun shots

2 layers of CG xxx were the LSP of choice.

Each of the wax layers was left to cure for about half an hour.

After buffing the second one I obtained this :

The tyres got 2 layers of CG Natural Shine, the seals were treated with Gummi.

The front of the car was protected with Venture Shield protective film.

3 days working more than 10 hours/day got me to these final results

Nice job on a nice car. :)

Did you do anything to the rear lights? I have usually stopped masking them because I polish all of them with the same combo I use on paint.

On this one I did absolutely nothing. The car was in a good sate as were the rear lights. After the car was waxed, i applyed one thin layer of CG M-Seal.

Great S&S, dude! Cred is given. :)

I found it interesting that you used Green Clean on the paintwork, how well did it help the prewash?

I always use Green Clean, even on the paint, in order to help cleaning the car. It is very important not to let the product dry on the paint. If that happens it could result in stains which are difficult to remove. Otherwise it helps alot, it's same as using a snowfoam in my oppinion.

Thank you very much.
