Chichester - Well....close enough!
Well after meeting the owner of a Ferrari 355 Spyder at Goodwood a couple of months back, he asked me to detail his Audi RS4, with plans to do his Ferrari if he liked the result.

Well he dropped the Audi off with me on Wednesday last week in the middle of a torrential downpour. Managed to start work on it on the Friday whilst dodging rain showers, before spending the whole of Saturday on it and most of Bank holiday Monday.
He collected it at about 4.30 on Monday.

It was very hard work. Audi paint is just soooooo damm hard. I did a total of at least 5 passes on some of the body panels, with about 8 on the front bonnet to get the finish I wanted.
Front bumper so badly stone chipped he will be getting it resprayed soon, and also the wheels need to be refurbed also.

I won't bore everyone with a complete write up, instead I will just stick up some photos. Not in order and only a few of the many photos I took, but I am aware this is a Cougar forum and not an Audi forum :LOL:

Great Job!

This is why I wanted a black Cougar - The shine you can get is amazing. Silver just isn't the same :p

Paul, brilliant job as always. Would love to give my Cougar to you to do. I can get it looking ok, but nowhere near the treatment you give the cars. I've got a couple of people lined up at work for me to detail their cars, however, they'll only look half as good as what you can do. I need to buy some proper kit...one day.

Anyway that RS is looking the biz!!

Paul, in all seriousness....why don't you organise something of a training day for members?

Having joined detailingworld.com there are a couple of members on there that charge x amount to have a few people over and teach them the tricks of the trade.

I would be up for it.
