So this is ‘’ part 2’’ of my detailing on this modded Bugatti Veyron. Why part 2 ? Because last time, I had to kind of rush my detail in order to have the car fully detailed before it leaves to the Grand Prix of Monaco. Then.. the car came back to Montreal for the Grand Prix of Montreal, plan was ; I get the car Friday morning around 10am.. I got it at 14h45 and car had to leave back at 16h in traffic hours so the car could be expose in Montreal’s street and be used in a videoclip made by 2 rappers.. From what I know, the videoclip never happened because 1. 50 cent never got into Canada (lol!) and 2. It was raining quite bad.


Je vous présente la partie 2 de ce detail sur la Bugatti Veyron mécaniquement modifié. Pourquoi partie 2 ? Parce que j’ai touché la voitures quelques fois depuis 2013, mais c’et la deuxième fois où j’ai vraiment plus qu’une heure, 1h30 avec la voiture. La dernière fois, j’étais pas mal pressé du fait que l’auto avait un petit videoshoot promo et devait partir pour le grand Prix de Monaco. L’auto revient à Montréal pour le Grand Prix. J’attendais la voiture pour 9-10h am, elle est arrive à 14h45 et devait repartir à 16h. J’ai donc pas encore eu le temps de detailed la voiture comme il se devait. L’auto était supposé faire partie d’un videoshoot, mais ce n’est jamais arrivé du fait que 50cent a jamais réussi à traverser le pays et qu’il pleuvait pas mal fort cette journée ( très dommage).

Donc, après les festivités, j’ai finalement pu avoir un beau tête-à-tête avec la voiture. Première chose que j’ai fait c’est demandé à mon ami ( Guillaume Boily Photography) qui prend des photos de qualité pour que vous puissiez avoir la chance de me voir en action et aussi pour faire différent de nos point and shoot typique.Finalement, je lui ai aussi demandé s’il pouvait nous faire un petit vidéo montrant les différentes étapes puisque vous avez été nombreux à réclamé un vidéo démontrant les différentes étapes d’un detail; quoi de mieux qu’une veyron pour cela ?


So.... after the festivity, I FINALLY got a proper date head to head with this beauty so next thing you know, I called my good buddy Guillaume Boily (Guillaume Boily Photography) to take quality pictures and bring you an exceptional quality thread with before/work in progress/after detail. Guillaume also managed to take a video of it which at the moment of writing this is still not available. So relax, have your favorite drink and enter in the world of Bugatti.

L’auto fut poli il y a un mois, mais comme toute bonne chose prend du temps, je fus débordé avec mon voyage d’affaire à Halifax et j’ai du retardé l’écriture de ce thread. Le video va plutôt mettre en valeur le début du detail tandis que plus le progrès avançait plus guillaume prenait de photo pour délaissé un peu le vidéo.
Voici une liste non-exhaustive des produits utilisés, mais ça donne une bonne idée quand même du ‘’plus gros’’.


The car was done 1 month ago but got way too busy with my detailing trip to Halifax and other concerns in Montreal to post it any sooner. None the least, I believe the car still look as good as it was the day it left the shop.

The video will showcase most of the beginning process so the picture are more focused toward the polish/finishing/after-pic

Product used:
2-bucket wash method using Raceglaze Nano Soap
Sea Sponge Mitt
Sonax Wheel cleaner + various Wheel woollies / Raceglaze brushes
SansZo waterless wash as a clay lube with Raceglaze clay bar
3M masking tape
Gold Microfiber for drying
Menzerna and HD compound/polish
Raceglaze pink paint cleanse
Our own exclusive formula of Raceglaze Black Label Special Reserve
Gauge used to measure paint on aluminum and metal was Positest DFT combo
and the one on fibreglass and carbon fiber panel was the Defelsko 200 standard

We obviously used much more products than these but on top of my hand that’s what I used.

Voici quelques step nécessaire à la préparation d’un polissage. Malheureusement, trop d’individu coupe les coins ronds pour vous offrir un meilleur prix, mais néglige certaines de ces étapes particulière qui font la différence.

These pre-polishing steps are very important in order to obtain a good finish at the very end. These steps can be sometimes missed in different detail shop that cut corner in order to cut the price but at the end the result won’t be as complete as it should.

Weird face I’m doing lol.. ! Brushing wheels

Taking reading of the carbon fiber panel:

Voici la condition initiale de la voiture dans un intervalle de 6-7 semaines entre ma première job de polissage et celle-ci. Pendant ce temps, elle a été entretenue à Monaco du mieux qu’il pouvait et faut pas oublier les 2 voyages en avion que la voiture a fait. Les marques d’eau étaient ancrées dans la couche transparente, un nettoyant chimique ne pouvait pas l’enlever. Il a fallu utiliser un nettoyant abrasif pour faire la correction nécessaire.

This is the initial condition of the car between our last detail, about 6- weeks before, remember the car was maintained in Monaco with the best they could and the car flight twice + vehicle transportation. You can see very bad water marks that etched the clear coat. Glaze or any chemical cleaner couldn’t remove it. Abrasive cleaner ( polish) was needed for this job.

Comme vous pouvez remarquer, je n’ai pas trop masqué les moulures /fentes car je voulais pouvoir polir le plus de peinture possible sans laissé de bande de peinture non-poli. Nous savions que nous allions relaver la voiture à la fin du processus. Donc, il y avait pas de crainte à avoir au niveau de laissé des résidus de poli dans les fentes.

Here you notice all the taping, we didn’t overly taped because we wanted to polish as much paint was possible along all edges, I knew I would be rewashing the car after the polishing and then would give me the opportunity to clean any residue left behind trims and cracks so no worries, I got this.

Voici la deuxième étape du processus, cette fois-ci j’utilise un poli intensif avec un pad orange et la machine rupes.


This is step 2, this is an intensive polish used with a Lake country orange pad on the Rupes polisher.
Posted Image

Voici la 3e étape sur notre processus à 4 étapes. J’ai décidé d’utiliser la machine Rupes, un pad blanc de polissage avec HD polish. Tous le long du processus de polissage, j’avais les spotlight 500watts, le sungun 3m et les deux lumières Brinkmans pour s’assurer que la correction exécuté sur la Bugatti était juste.



This is the step 3 in my step 4 process; here I am working the HD polish with a white pad on the Rupes polisher.
Posted Image

We used 2 set of spotlight, along with our specialities lights ( 3m sun gun, brinkman led and brinkman halogen gun) to make sure the correction was done right and spotless:
Posted Image

Pour la partie 1 de mon détail en mai, certains ont commenté la partie brune sur le capot et bien comme vous voyez, avec un photographe pro et un éclairage de qualité, la fibre de carbone est absolument impeccable.

In part 1, I had people commenting on the brown thing on the hood, not sure if people were looking at bashing me or just unsure, but I told them it as the carbon fiber, and my bad photographer skill. Here you can clearly see the hood is absolutely spotless and scratch free, just clean sexy carbon fiber weaves

If you ever wondered, the trunk is about as big as a Porsche 911.. Meaning you won’t put much beside 3-4 grocery bag haha. This was in my final stage where I clean every vent/crevice.

Depuis ce détail, on me demande souvent quel était mon feeling lorsque je poli des voitures aussi spécial que celle-ci. Ce sur quoi je réponds que quand tu reçois l’appel, tu es excité. Quand tu arrives sur place et on te donne les clés et bouge la voiture, tu sais que tu va avoir beaucoup de plaisir, mais pendant la job… j’oublie que je travail sur une Veyron. Ce n’est que de la peinture, je suis focus sur mon polissage et j’oublie le logo sur la peinture, tout ce qui m’importe c’est de contourné les différents obstacles que les courbes de la voiture m’offre. Une fois la job terminé, là, par contre, tu es aux anges. Surtout quand tu n’as pas la job de photographié le résultat final et que tu sais que Guillaume est là pour prendre les photos, tu as juste hâte de voir le résultat sur l’ordinateur. Remarquez aussi l’attention porté sur la photo ; la corde sur l’épaule, le focus sur la peinture et le tablier en microfibres pour ne pas abimer la corde contre la peinture.

Real focus, cord on the shoulder so it doesn’t mar the paintwork, microfiber apron so you can lean on the car without scratching, this is how it should be done. By the way, I got asked quite a few times how it is to detail such expensive and unique cars. To this I replied, when you pick up the phone, you’re excited. When you shook hands and hands you the key your excited and living a dream thinking you will be turning the engine on by your own but when you detail the car, your just FULLY CONCENTRATED to the point you forget your working on a supercar, it’s just paint.. Good looking paints but paint none the less. After the detail, you step back, look at guillaume taking pictures, making your job look even more stunning and you’re like: WOW, I’m proud of my work!

Even after step 2, you can see quite well my reflection in the paint! Haha

Vacuuming, got the cord on my shoulder to not mar the paintwork:

Applying one of my favorite wax on all carbon fiber, both interior and exterior: Definitive wax Number One. Really like this wax for the gloss it gives to the clear coat and it’s long-lasting shine for a carnauba wax :

Après les after-shot, j’ai appelé le propriétaire pour qu’il vienne chercher sa voiture. Guillaume m’avait manifesté son désir de prendre des rolling shot de la Veyron. Je ne pouvais lui promettre, mais j’ai été bien heureux quand il a accepté la demande de Boily. Imaginez la scène. Vous avez une Oldsmobile Alero de 150hp qui tente de ‘’courir’’ après une Bugatti de 1500hp sur l’autoroute, tandis que Boily tente de prendre LE bon cliché. J’ai apprécié que les automobilistes en arrière n’est pas montré des signes d’impatience car nous avons clairement du attiré l’attention en voyant le petit line-up de voiture dernière nous, mais je crois que tous appréciait la voiture! Un gentleman ce proprio et c’est pour cette raison que je donne aucune information à son sujet, par respect.

Now this was a cool moment for me, Guillaume really wanted to have a rolling shot of the car so I told him I would ask the owner if he would accept., He said yes, and weather was nice outside so it was perfect timing. However, we didn’t want to annoy him too much so Guillaume wanted to act quickly. As you can imagine.. You have a 1500hp bugatti veyron behind a 150hp Oldsmobile Alero and one guy snapping picture standing out of the passenger side with a big-*** camera LOL. Imagine the scene for a moment.. it was quite funny. What I really appreciate was everyone on the road didn’t hit their horn and started being aggressive because he did slow down the traffic for a little moment. So when we were about to leave, the owner pulled on the side and asked us if Guillaume had his shot right or we needed more time. This was kind of him to ask us and we appreciated it. He is a real gentleman.

Interior all-done and you can see my lovely alero in the back.. lol !!

Thank you sir!

Hey guys, I also forgot to tell you.. well it’s because the picture were only taken with my cellphone and I didn’t check it for a while, but some of you might been aware there was actually 2 Bugatti Veyron at the Montreal Grand-Prix this year. The other one being a very rare VITESSE edition.

Well we managed to do a quick detail on it but had very few times ahead of us since the car was leaving back to the US.
Still cool to see 2 bugatti next to each other, along with some other cool cars ( you only see 2 ferraris, but there was also 2 more Lamborghini in the garage at this moment)
