Had a chance to asses this S5 last year but due to scheduling on both our ends things didn't pan out. But this year the client wanted to get it done before our busy season hit so in it came for March and received our 2 stage polish with Opti Gloss Coat as protection.
Cleaning the wheels while we had a chance to chat with the customer while he waited for his ride
Claybarring the paint
Masking off the rubber trim
Measuring the paint and found no panels that were repainted
The paint was in pretty rough shape so we had to hit it with a compound for the 1st stage
after (as you can see the compound removed the swirls but left a haze behind due to it's aggressiveness)
After the 1st stage we refined the paint with a lighter cutting polish on the 2nd stage to remove the haze as well as leave a deep gloss
After all the polishing was completed we began the finishing prep
Removing the masking tape
And cleaning polish that had gotten in the parking sensors with a tooth pick
Then protected the new finish with Opti Gloss Coat which lasts for 2 years
And here are the final shots. Unfortunately no sun was out but hopefully you can still see the gloss achieved.
And the last pic
Hope you enjoyed the pics and looking forward to seeing some of you this driving season!
