  • 2013 Volkswagen Golf R Mk6 [Deep Black Pearl]



    Hey folks!

    We had a client recently request that I fly up to Sydney to detail his recently purchased pride and joy.

    While the car was fairly enjoyable to work with, the environment was not - as I happened to fly up during Western Sydney's 44 degree heatwave.

    The car was riddled with water spots, RIDS and fairly heavy swirls. Passes had to be cut in half, allowing pad, paint and machine (and me!) to cool down sufficiently before proceeding.

    Luckily though, Elias from Crystal Clear Detailing in Campbelltown offered his assistance and facilities for the weekend. Definitely helped push through the heatwave without getting heat stroke.

    After a lengthy two-stage correction, followed by two layers of Opti-Coat Pro+ on the paint and wheels - the finished result was well worth the effort. Deep gloss and sharp metallic fleck awaited.

    Some touch-ups were also performed on the deep scratches which had struck through.

    Definitely won't be booking any more flights to Sydney during summer....

    After applying two coats of colour, three coats of clear and wetsanding smooth.




























    Thanks for reading,

    That flake just pops now. wow wow
    The thing that you do, after your day job, in your free time, early in the morning or late at night. The thing you read about, write about, think about, fantasize about. that thing you do alone and theres no one to impress, nothing to prove, no money to be made, simply a passion to pursue. Thats it, thats your thing, thats your heart , your guide, Thats the thing you must, must do.

                      It heats as well. Or fire up the IR lamp.
