This Audi RS3 in Daytona Grey was in to us for a light Paint Correction and Gtechniq Crystal Serum Ultra Black coating.

This RS3’s paint was in quite good condition considering it was a year old with multiple washes in it’s lifetime but it goes to show that a correct wash procedure can help to hugely mitigate swirl damage to the paintwork. Various areas of the roof required some extra cutting to remove some sanding marks followed by refining with 2200 which was used on the rest of the car to correct the swirls. Each panel was wiped down with Gtechniq’s Panel Wipe after each polishing set to ensure nothing is being hidden by any polishing oils.
Once the correctional step was completed the RS3 was rewashed, air dried, panel wiped and inspected before application of the coating. Gtechniq’s Crystal Serum Ultra followed by two layers of EXOv4 was applied with two hour intervals between each coating layer. In between the different layers of coating the windscreen was also coated with G1 Clear Vision for much improved repellency and visibility in harsh weather conditions.
This procedure brought this RS3 back to the showroom finish it deserves and will keep an extremely high level of gloss along with strong swirl resistance for years to come.
