    Enhancement Detail - Deep Pearl Blue VW Golf R32 Mk5

    The aim for this car, was to improve its appearance as much as possible with a day (7-8 hours or so), with a view to correcting as many of the defects and swirling as possible.

    The car itself was a Mk5 Golf R32 is the stunning Deep Pearl Blue colour.

    Here is the car after I shortly arrived - nice and dirty, just how I like them...

    So, as ever, first up was the wheels and arches with AS G101 and various brushes, followed by snow foam with Megs Hyper Wash, hand wash with Megs Hyper Wash, then the car was put back into the garage to warm up a bit, ahead of the claying stage...

    I could tell from washing the car (even through a mitt) that claying would take a while as there were a LOT of bonded contaminants on this vehicle!

    Here's a pic of the clay bar after one small portion of the car...!!

    After claying, I dried the car over with an Uber drying towel, and began to asses the paint for defects. At first, I didn't think the paint was very bad, but after a proper inspection, it turned out to be in a bit of a state - clearly this car had never been cared for previously paint wise, some of this swirling was incredibly deep, and it was covered in RDS's!

    Clearly it was not going to be possible to fully correct this car in a day, given its hard German paint, so I went about trying to establish which combination would offer us good results within the time limitations. Have sampling various combinations, I settled on 3M EFC with a Megs Cutting Pad, which allowed me to finish down well enough, and also offer a decent level of correction.

    (Lime Prime was used on the plastics)

    As you can see, not perfect, but a LOT better with much more vibrancy to the colour, and the gloss/reflectivity of the paintwork has been restored:

    As the day was quickly turning to night, and the temp was falling to -2, please excuse the 'not very final' shots. Hopefully you can see that the car is in a much better state when compared to the starting point:

    I wasn't happy with the final outcome as I couldn't get the paint as corrected as I'd like to within the time constraints, but it definitely looked a lot better for the time spent on it. I intend to return at a later date to finish what I've begun.

    Thanks for reading

    Russ/

    Thanks Dawn

    Hi todd100, I use a rotary, it would be difficult to achieve that level of correction on VW paint in 4-5 hours, with a DA.

    I have a Chicago Pneumatic CP8210 with Gloss It backing plates.

    Russ.

    I totally forgot you used the CP Russ, a simply stunning machine.

    LP to the rescue again in some cases. Cracking enhancement mate, i'm sure the owner was chuffed none the less.

    A very rewarding colour also. Any more write ups to come Russ?

    Thanks Gally

    I did a Meg 250 yesterday which I've posted up, an R26 in white on Saturday, but that was just a "hand job".

    I've got some nice cars coming up in the next few weeks, so plenty of write ups to come...

    I was wondering the same you Brummy git You well Russ? SEnt you a PM a while back on DW or here about a member in the midlands who had PM'd me about doing a detail - pointed him in your direction... think he was a fellow Meg owner.

    Lovely results on the .:R, always a rewarding colour!

    Tell me about it, Todd has this place the same!

    It's the weather I think, once the better weather comes in might get better.

    Sorry JD, I'd not been on for a few months, I think it was a touch too far from me anyway IIRC. Sorry for not replying though x
