Audi RS2

– Full Correction Interior Detail

The fantastic Audi RS2 – what a very special estate car this is – apparently there were only 2062 made Worldwide of that only 182 were right hand drive. Nick Mason has one, Jamiroqui has one and so does our customer. This was the first and only RS built by Porsche.

Top Gear has voted this car as number 6 of their best driving cars.

Our client bought his car some six months ago and drove it as it was for a short period of time before bringing it to us.

After some initial inspection and discussions we started “Our Bit” (as it turned out it was a big bit).

The whole body was wetted from the waist line down and we attended to the alloys and calipers. These were firstly coated with a good cleaner/degreaser and left to dwell for a period of time, then pressure washed off. This removed the loose rubbish and general dust.

Then we applied a fine acid to both wheels and calipers – yes they are red (Porsche) after carefully brushing the wheels and calipers they were gently washed again – perfect.

Now came the larger job, the paintwork. Althought his car is 15 – 16 years old the paint was still in good general condition, just a couple of chips. We started by applying a non caustic traffic film remover to the areas that were the most affected by road dirt, wheel arches, under bumpers, door shuts etc. and pressure washing it off, we then started the two bucket method of washing the full exterior and finally washing down again.

Before we went any further we clayed the entire body to remove all the contaminents, as you can see from the photo’s the car had been standing outside for long periods of time, lots of mould on the window rubbers and most other crevices. This was attended to prior to washing the vehicle again. It was dried with soft cloths aided with a spray of last touch before being taken into our workshops.

During the time we were working on the car the client visited us on several occasions to see how it was progressing. He also spends some time on Detailing Forums. This car will, might just end up on an Audi one very soon, hopefully with a link to us.

Whilst the car was drying we decided to start work on the interior, first a quick hoover to remove most of the general bits and pieces. The Nappa Leather was just grubby from general use so we applied a cleaner to the seat squab, leather surround and doors. Next was the dashboard area, fiddley places to get to at the best of times, however after some time cleaning with brushes, cloths and detail swabs it looked very good.

All the door, boot and bonnet shuts were cleaned and dried before treating the leather trim on the interior which included seats and door cards and dashboard. Cleaned and polished the insides of the windows – shut the doors – done.

Now was the time to mask up the exterior ready for machining.

We measured the paint depth throughout the whole of the vehicle and noted this carefully, with this age of paint you can’t be sure it hasn’t had work before.

Because the paint was quite flat we used a medium grade pad together with a heavy German compound and started with the bonnet. After a few passes we noticed the paint seemed to come alive again and we found some “shine”. Continuing along the wings to the doors, rear quarter panels, tailgate and finally the roof. Changing to a fine/medium compound we started again on the bonnet and through the rest of the panels.

The depth of colour and gloss was fantastic and left the metallic sparkling, great finish. The bumpers were finely scratched, especially the rear, obviously where items had been put in and taken out. After a fair bit of time with the machine they looked like glass. We decided on applying 2 coats of DoDo Juice as final polish this really brought out the metallic flec finish.

Turning to the wheels, which looked clean after being washed and dried, they were treated to a good application of Rim Wax, this really brought out the fantastic deep silver reflective shine in the alloy.

The car was taken back to our wash area and given a quick blast off to remove the dust that had accumulated during cleaning and polishing, it was then dried and the exterior windows cleaned and polished – with a final wipe over we examined the paintwork and interior. “I’m happy” Job done – Get the client in.

Our client was very happy with the results, so much so that he asked if we could keep the car for a few days till the weather had improved. We did this for him, unfortunatly when he did collect it, it was snowing. He did however tell us that the car would be back in the new year for a “Top up”
