NEW CAR DETAIL AUDI Q5 45TFSI

A new 2019 Audi Q5 45TFSI in daytona grey with just 500 miles on the clock booked in for it’s new car detail.

A two stage machine polish was carried out to remove any defects and create a high gloss ready for Kamikaze Collection’s extremely high quality protective coatings to apply to the surface.

The first being Miyabi, Kamikaze Collection Miyabi Coat contains smaller molecules than the average glass coat sealant, making it is less prone to water spotting. The high silica dioxide content provides durable protection and an amazingly clear, brilliant shine to any colour paintwork.

The top layer – an accredited detailer only application of Zipang Gold Class Coat was then applied after a specific curing time frame for Miyabi to bond to the paintwork. Zipang Coat has evolved from the technology employed by ISM PRO. Like ISM PRO, Zipang Coat combines high quality, ingredients with Kamikaze Collection’s ultra-low molecular weight hydrocarbons to produce a coating with extreme water repelling properties. However, extensive research and development has enriched these ingredients to increase their performance and enhance their reflective potential. Furthermore, Zipang Coat has a self-levelling function activated by heat that helps keep paintwork swirl-free for longer.

Exterior glass was coated with Angelwax H2Go rain repellent, interior cleaned and vacuumed.

The owner also opted for the wheel protection package. Wheels are removed and coated inside and out with a protective coatings, in this case Gyeon Rim resisting brake dust and road grime bonding to the surface and making cleaning easier.

After the machine polishing process was complete, a panel wipe down using Gyeon Prep makes sure there no polishing residues and gives the paints freshly polished lacquer the cleanest base for a protective coating to bond to.

Coatings of choice were Kamikaze Collection. A Japanese hand made variety boasting extreme gloss and durability. The finished look of these coatings compared to other brands is night and day.

The customer opted for a combination of Miyabi used as a base layer, with accredited detailer only Zipang Gold Class coat as the top layer. putting the two together creates an extreme candy gloss finish with added richness to the car’s colour and some exceptional durability and water/dirt repelling elements. There are simply no other coatings on the market that enrich the colour like Kamikaze Collection.
