Audi R8 Phantom Black V10 Paint Correction

Multi day paint correction car detail for a beautiful Audi R8 Phantom Black V10. Huge amount of dealership wash swirls, towel marks, and incorrect buffing procedures on the paint. Some areas were easily corrected with Meguiars MF Finish Pad & M205 Polish, however a ton of random isolated deep scratches on the rear fenders, hood, and rear trunk lid area. Most sharp curvy areas such as the front slitter and rear splitter were done by hand with HD Express. Vehicle was close to perfect and was restored back to proper like new condition.

Enjoy the Facebook Album commentary, this was a fun project and one of the few black metallic paints I enjoy working on

From May 28th to May 30th I made a pilgrimage to Orange County & Irvine, California for Meguiar’s NXTi Class (NXT Class) “Fundamental Sanding & Polishing Techniques”. Meguiar’s rarely runs specialty paint polishing, sanding, and refinishing courses of this high calibre. So with some last minute  schedule changes and a leap of faith we travelled to California to meet some of the best paint correction & speciality detailers in the world.
