    1 of 1 Signal Green Audi R8 V10 by Tru Shine and Unique Mobile Detailing



    I was very excited to get to work on this one of a kind factory painted Signal green Audi R8 V10. This car doesn't have very many miles on it, but it does have a few factory defects that needed addressed.










    We started with the wheels using Sonax Full Effect which is a Safe and pH balanced wheel cleaner.








    This wheels cleaner is designed to turn a redish color when it reacts with the Iron particles of the brake dust.







    Using our Ez Detail brush we were able to get inside the wheel barrels real good.











    After all of the wheels were cleaned, We then Pre-rinsed the car down to knock off any loose/heavy debris.





    Next we gave it a foam bath











    no beadage



    Brought the car to clay bar and tape up



    then David took the air force blaster and blew all of the water out of the crevices while I dried the panels with a microfiber towel.











    Next we both taped off any plastic trim or clear bra edges.

    you can see here that the black painted area had LOTs of defects





    we removed the LP for better access behinde it for polishing.





    Even the taillights were marred up





    Using my Griot's 6in DA and Cyan LC pad and M105 I started on the soft black painted section.



    here is a 50/50







    While I was working on the rear section of the car, David was cutting the paint with the Megs Microfiber cutting disc and D300


    here is a section of the Driver Quater panel that David did a 50/50












    Slight haze left behind from the cutitng disc and D300 which will be polished out, but overall the correction was great





    For the Taillights, I used a Rotary buffer with 3in Gloss-it BP and a Cyan 4in pad with M105 followed with M205 on a Tang pad.









    here are some scratches on the edge of the rear wing





    Making our way around the car I chose the Griots 6in DA with the Microfiber DA system



    Some scratches were a little deeper and required a little more cut, so for this i used a Surbuff pad and M105 compound



    David with his Flex 3401 and the Microfiber system



    Me with the Griot's DA and Microfiber system



    After cutting and polishing (polished with black LC pad and M205) the car, we pulled it back out side to wash off and remove any dust and compound from the jams.

    Then we pulled the car back inside and I began to seal the paint with Black Fire Wet Diamond and David Used the Black Fire Midnight sun on the Carbon Fiber in the Engine bay.













    we used Opti-Bond tire shine on the tires.



    After all said and done here are the final pictures.













































    Thanks for Viewing, Have a Blessed day!

    Signal green, a very appropriate name. Wow that thing is visible.

    It looked like in this picture you were using the Flex DA with the Microfiber system ... can you share your experience using the MF system on the flex?

    Awesome job on a awesome car. Love these cars and really like the color. What pressure washer are you using in the picture? Does it power the foam cannon good?

    Pretty sweet. Is that a setting on your camera or Photoshop that gives the effects? Guess I need to upgrade from my Canon point and shoot.
