BRAND NEW CAR DETAIL VW GOLF GTI

A brand new VW Golf GTI delivered by the owner straight from the dealership with just 16 miles on the clock. The GTI had no prior wash or preparation, just the protective film removed.

A full safe wash, decontamination and clay bear was carried out prior to a single stage machine polish. Hardly any defects on the paintwork, just some minor scratches on the rear quarter panel.

The customer wanted Kamikaze Collection coatings for paintwork and trim protection. We opted for the nicknamed ‘sandwich coat system’. The first layer being a certified detailer only application of the latest Zipang semi self healing coating. This was then followed by the second layer, Miyabi a hard glass coating, then a third and final layer of Zipang. This gives the GTI an extremely wet like appearance with durability of 48 + months with correct aftercare methods (Kamikaze anti ageing shampoo and their Overcoat 2.1 spray for topping up gloss and protection.

The owner also opted for our popular wheel and caliper protection package, even including the plastic wheel bolt covers which were coated with Zipang. Wheels were removed and coated inside and out including calipers with Kamikaze Collection Stance coat.

Exterior glass was coated with multiple coats of Angelwax H2GO rain replellent eliminating the use of wiper blades in poor conditions.

Interior was vacuumed and engine bay cleaned then dressed with Aerospace 303.

In my opinion this is the perfect way to prepare a brand new vehicle for it’s life on the road. No dealership applied protection, no handover valet, just the wraps removed and the keys handed over ready to be professionally detailed and protected.

NEW CAR DETAIL 2017 VW GOLF R

A stunning huge spec Volkswagen Golf R in lapis blue was booked in for a new car detail with added leather care protection package, also opting for the wheel and caliper protection package too.

Having just 22 miles on the clock, the vehicle was not prepped by Volkswagen, but still showed some minor scratches and swirl marks here and there which were removed with a single stage machine polish creating a very nice gloss to lay the Kamikaze Collection coatings down on which the owner went for instead of the original Gtechniq option.

Miyabi Coat acted as a base layer giving a good hardness with excellent gloss and hydrophobic properties. Certified only ISM Pro was then added on top. Now, ISM Pro on it’s own is extremely hydrophobic but when paired with Miyabi as an undercoat the gloss levels go through the roof and adds even more durability against the elements. Topping this up with Kamikaze Collection Overcoat it’s a seriously strong combination.

Wheels were removed and coated inside and out with Gyeon Rim as well as the calipers. This is an additional bolt on wheel/caliper care package. Centre caps were re-aligned with the tyre valves and torqued to factory specs. The locking wheel bolts are aligned at 12 o’clock even though they are under the dust caps.

The owner also opted to have the leather treatment package added to his new car detail. Multiple coats of Dr Leather Dye Block was applied to the black, cream and carbon fibre weaved seats, with the steering wheel door cards, gear knob and gator also coated. Exterior glass received Gtechniq Smart Glass coating for easy viewing and extra safety when driving in poor conditions.

The result an extremely gloss, wet look appearance to the lapis blue paintwork with incredible protection to every surface of the vehicle. I do love working on lapis blue!
