We are all the way up north at Penang for this sleek Audi. Aged more than 4 years old, its gone through a major heart surgery, several paint damage repairs and also a so called professional grade paint coating.
Upon arrival, we inspect the exterior and evaluate the gloss and shine. It seem to look good until we dug deeper.
We first spot some daily driven damages like this.
Some watermark stains on white.
With a proper lighting or LED we can clearly see swirl damages. But what we didn’t expect is…
Then we found this. It a china made taflon coating which will crack or degrade overtime.
To our horror, we found the coating failures.
Without any lighting support, just by natural lighting, the scratches are pretty obvious.
When a proper LED is shine onto the surface. All damages revealed itself.
We started with the cleaning and claying, just by claying 1 panel the clay turned into a dark brown colour.
After several hours cleaning, we are able to restore the surface cleanliness to how it is suppose to be.
Tar removal was done for the entire car.
After correction and final inspection, the car is ready for coating process.
As always, the results has no caption for maximum gloss enjoyment.
