Audi R8, in figures :

V8, 4.2 L FSI.

Power 420 BHP.

Top Speed 300+ km/h.

0..100 km/h. in ~4 sec

And all of that dressed in lether and listening to the B&O sound system.... Awesome.

Being a car for the summer, the owner (my friend) keeps the beast locked in a garage during the cold season. He didn't know about this detail until christmas, this work being my gift for him. I had a few helpers (in the person of his mom and girlfriend wich brought me the car without him knowing)

At arrival the car looked like so :

Excellent job!

A few questions from a beginner...

- I see you clay in below freezing (?) temperature, do you use any special precautions/tricks with regards to this?

- how would you consider the hardness of the paint, and do ou know the name of this blue color?

Regards

As we all know, the sticky part of the clay, the one that makes it maleable is there only to hold in place the abrasives that do the work. Also, it is known that the sticky material can harm the paint if it is hard. In cases like the one that i had to work, i kept the clay in a can o hot water in order to keep it soft and never worked more than a panel each time before swiching to a new piece of clay.

About the color name/code I can't help you at the moment because i don't know. I will ask and keep you posted. Otherwise the paint is pretty much the same as any ceramic clearcoated paint I have worked with.

Hope I answered yor questions.

Take care !
