Okay, not the best pictures, the weather wasn't great at all a bit damp so some of the products were tougher than usual to remove.

Too bad the yellow doesn't show in pictures as it does in person but let me tell you the Swissvax Concorso really put some depth and wetness to the paint!

Customer loved it :thumbup:

Products used:

1Z Einszett Perls Car Wash (in the foam gun and in the bucket)
Shmitt Wash mitt and Shmitt Wheel mitt
1 Bucket with grit guard
Gilmour Foam Gun
Jumbo Waffle Weave Drying Towel
Microfiber Buffing Towels
Boar's Hair Brush
Spoke brush for the inner wheels
Adam's VRT
Adam's Glass Cleaner
Adam's Detail Spray
Adam's Clay Bar
Menzerna 85rd
Swissol Wax (Concorso)
Swissol Pre-Cleaner
P21S Wheel Cleaner Gel
P21S Autowash
Metabo (hi speed rotary)
Firehose Nozzle
Edge pad blue 6 inch
1Z Einszett Cockpit
1Z Einszett Detail Spray

1. Rinsed down the wheels (they were cool enough to touch)
2. Sprayed down the wheels with some P21S Wheel Cleaner
3. Brush and cleaned the wheels with a Boar's Hair Brush
4. Rinsed down the wheels
5. Filled the bucket with water for the rinse
6. Filled up the Gilmour Foam gun and proceed to pre soak the car.
7. Used the Shmitt to wash the car, from top to hood to sides to rear.
cleaning the Shmitt after each panel was soaped up by dunking it in the bucket with the grit guard at the bottom, rinse and clean the pad and continue on to the next panel repeat till you finish washing each panel.
8. After your wash the car rinse car off throughly
9. Since there was no sun out and it was cool, I sprayed Adam's Detail Spray on the panels and proceeded to clay the car (Adam's Clay Bar) after each panel and each window was clayed I used the WW Drying Towel to wipe the excess detail spray off.
10. Car is clayed and dried.
11. Used the Metabo with the Menzerna 106ff to polish out all the minor imperfections.
12. After each section was corrected I buffed off the excess polish with a MF Buffing Towel.
13. Applied the Swissol Pre Cleaner (needed for the Swissol wax to bond to the car)
14. Removed Pre Cleaner
15. Applied and removed Swissol (WOW amazing a super wet/deep/shine....)
16. Cleaned up the windows with Adam's Glass Cleaner (interior/exterior)
17. Dressed the tires with Adam's VRT (did one pass on the applicator and did a pass using the dry side as the customer prefers a matte finish)
18. Used 1Z Detail Spray to do a final wipe down on the wheels.
19. Used the 1Z Detail Spray for a final wipe down on the car.

1. Wiped down the door jambs with 1Z detail spray
2. Vacuumed the mats, carpet, etc.
3. Wiped down the dash with 1Z Cockpit
4. Cleaned the glass

scott and Shhhh thanks!!!!

Too bad pics don't do this yellow any justice.....suprising this car had about on average 230 plus microns on it...consistant all around I was pretty surprised about that.
Most Audis I've done are about 95-130 microns...

Thats one beautiful car, great job on the paint. Proves yellow can be deep and wet looking.

How do you like the P21S wheel cleaner, looks like it did a good job.

its funny as you all know my camera skills are horrible. The customer actually took them after the detail and e-mail them to me. He was definitely using an SLR type camera.

evenflo p21s rocks I've used it many other wheel cleaners and always go back to it. I rather not risk anything, some of my customers wheel/tire set ups are really expensive.
