VW Golf GTI MK2 Show Car

Recently i was asked to carry out a paint correction detail on this stunning MK2 Golf GTI show car.

As part of my mobile service i traveled from Basingstoke to Bristol to carry out the Detail.






After having a full colour change the paint wasn’t up to show standard so FMdetailing was drafted in to bring it up to par.

IMG_0005First up the Golf had a full safe wash & decontamination, this is a snowfoam pre wash to break up the dirty particles then a two bucket wash to wash the vehicle in a safe manner to minimize any scratching.

After the two bucket wash it had a clay bar treatment to remove any overspray, iron deposits and tar deposits. That treatment leaves the paint perfectly smooth and ready for machine polsihing.


IMG_0053IMG_0055Once the right pad & polish combo was found to correct the paintwork it was onto polishing it to perfection.

As you can see from the before and after photos theres a massive difference in the clarity of the paint.

After all the polishing steps had been carried out it was time to give it a full IPA wipe down to ensure the right level of correction had been achieved.

Once it was checked & checked again it was time to get some protection onto the freshly polished paintwork to protect it from the elements, the protection that was chosen was Gtechniq Liquid Crystal, two coats of this spray paint sealant was used then to finish a coat of natural caranuba wax for a deep glow.
