Audi RS6 Gyeon Detail

Audi RS6 Gyeon Protection Detail

We had the great pleasure to detail this 180 mile old Audi RS6. We protected the surfaces with Gyeons anti-scratch, high gloss coating to give the vehicle its best chances against the elements as well as making it look fantastic!

Here are the photos of how she was on arrival.

Next it was time to give the vehicle a snow foam, 2 bucket method was used, as well as all the de-contamination it needs. This also included using a fall out remover (Iron-x) and clay bar to ensure all the surfaces are prepared correctly before any machine work.

Once inside, fully de-contaminated to an extent. All the vehicles surfaces were hot air dried, inc wheels to ensure no water was left over.

The inside was also treated to our special attention.

Each wheel was then polished, wiped and then coated in Gyeon Rim. This was then infrared baked to get the best cure.

This was also done to all the paint surfaces after a 1 stage machine polish.

Once we were happy with the level of defects removed, the paint was treated to Swissvax cleaner Fluid before a layer of Swissvax Zuffenhausen & Sheild.

The end result is a wet looking, deep glossy finish and a very happy customer!

Finished in Swissvax Zuffenhausen & Shield on the paint, Swissvax Autobahn on the wheels and our own glass sealant on the windows to ensure total protection. Meguiars Endurance was used on the tyres & Swissvax Seal Feed was used to renovate the plastics.

This was our 2 stage enhancement detail with Swissvax Wax bolt ons.

Choosing a Shampoo

Choosing your Car Shampoo

Although most of the time choosing a car shampoo would be looked at as easy stuff. Well, with these important choosing a shampoo advice factors its going to be even easier.

Most people think all car shampoos are the same, this is infact wrong. There are many factors which make a choosing a shampoo easy or hard. Here are the factors you want to be looking for

  • Dilution ratio
  • PH level
  • Protection application

With these simple points its easy to see if you get it right or wrong. Choosing a shampoo made easy!

Dilution Ratio

Simple, the better the dilution ratio the more cost effect it is. Dont get stuck looking at how many letres you buy, look at how many letres it will make!

For instance, Supermarket shampoos are around £2.50 for 1L. Sounds amazing! But, the dilution ratio is around 10:1. CleanDetail shampoo for example is £12.95 for 400ml, sounds expensive right? WRONG. CleanDetails shampoo is 2000:1 which means it makes around 800,000L of shampoo water for your bucket and your cheap Supermarket brand only makes 10,000L so to put it into perspective, your 1L at £2.50 worth of shampoo will need to be bought 80 times to make the same about of shampoo which is in our 400ml bottle which would cost £200!! Meaning you save £187.05

This of course can be translated into any shampoo, DoDo Juice make a Shampoo which is 1500:1 although its what most people would consider expensive. When you look at the bigger picture its actually cheaper than you think.

PH Level

PH level is important as this tells you if the shampoo will strip or attack any previous wax or sealants applied to your vehicle. Most cheaper shampoos help clean by been an alkaline which is great for a clean car, not so great for your vehicles surfaces when protecting against the daily environment its exposed to.

The simple key is PH Neutral. Any good shampoo which works with your cars current surfaces are PN Neutral. Simple.

Protection Application

Some shampoos add a layer of protection while you wash. Simular to the traditional Wash & Wax. Personally were not fond of Wash & Wax’s is its normally a cheaper wax which clogs and previous applications of more expensive wax’s and actually helps dull plastics etc.

Todays more modern protection are nano based, for example Autobrite Directs Nano Protection shampoo. Ideal for any car but adds a layer of protection as well. Prefect for people with less time on their hands.

Choosing a Shampoo

Hopefully after readying this advice you can see choosing a shampoo for your vehicle, motorhome, Caravan, Plane or boat is actually easy when you know what to look for. Choosing a shampoo made easy!
