Detailer's Domain: Audi RS4 - Avus Silver - Paint Correction and more.

We haven't seen this car for 2 years and our customer wanted to get it back into shape. A full clean up including wheels pulled off, wheel wells cleaned, brake calipers cleaned and opti coated. The engine was cleaned with Adam's APC and dressed with Adam's In and Out.

A full paint correction was needed, we remove imperfections and bring back the gloss. The last step used would be Sonax Polymer Net Shield.

The interior needed some work as well, carpets were vac'd, cleaned up with Sonax Carpet and Upholstery with the Uber interior brush and Griots, followed by extraction.

3 steps on the leather - including Leather Master Rapid S, Leather Master Vital, and protected with Leather Master Protection Cream.

Prep
We got our hands on Sonax Full Effect Wheel Cleaner Pro - faster, stronger, cleaner.

Sonax Multistar on the tires



We have found using a microfiber and Sonax Multistar is great way to remove all that caked on tire dressing.

To maximize the cleaning power of your wheel cleaner make sure you hit up your wheels various brushes.
