Tovino Thomas is one of the very popular actor in Malayalam film industry, he contacted us to reclaim the beauty of his beast Audi Q7. Our detailing process will be driven by four phases such as Interaction Phase, Inspection Phase, Planing Phase and Execution Phase.
During the Interaction phase with Tovino Thomas, it was confirmed that the car has lots of swirls and scratches, and he confessed that due to his busy schedules, depended automatic car washing centres for washing the car and their love made those paint defects like swirls and scratches. When you wash your cars in automatic car washing centres while it cleans your car, it also induces some reasonable amount of swirls on the car body, so be aware about this fact!
While our Inspection phase, we checked the thickness of the paint using our paint thickness gauge (this will help us to know the polishability of the paint, most of the detailers skip this process and end-up in removing the clear coat left on the paint without noticing), we found that some panels were repainted and that also created some other issues on other panels – severe overspray on many places. On the bonnet we found lots of deep scratches which was one of the major concern for Mr Tovino Thomas and severe orange peel was there on almost everywhere (Please check our paint correction guide to know more about orange peel). The car was contaminated with tar, water-spots and carbon deposits.
We completed our inspection of Tovino’s car with a conclusion that it requires a good paint correction to get rid of the swirls and scratches, it also require deep interior detailing as the interior was kind of neglected. Normally Audi car’s used to paint with water-based paints and topped-up with Glasurit clear coat from Germany, they are hard paints.
During our Planning phase our strategy finalised for this car was GreenZ XtremeCut Compound 350 with GreenZ Denim Pad to remove orange peel and deep scratches. To remove Severe scratches, we planned to use GreenZ XtremeCut Compound 350 along with our GreenZ Hybrid White Heavy Cutting Foam Pad.
Then use GreenZ Heavy Cut Compound 600 with our GreenZ Hybrid Orange Medium Cutting Foam Pad to remove swrils and minor and medium scratches. Finaly use our GreenZ UltraFinish Polish 4500 and GreenZ Hybrid Black Finishing Foam Pad on a DA polisher which will bring mirror finish for the paint surface. Unlike our competitions, the excellent combination of our compounds and pads enable us to use two-step correction in most of the situations and save a lots of clear coat on our customers cars.
We used Gyeon Quartz’s Gyeon Q² Mohs which is phps-based glass coating and the hardest coating available in the market which is 9H certified by Korean agency KTR (Korean Testing & Research Institute) and Singapore agency SGS.
