    Mint 2015 S8

    Hello Everyone! Yes, it has been a very long time since I`ve posted in general, and a long time since I`ve posted any work. I guess I just dropped doing it out of laziness. Anyway, Jim texted me the day before asking how I was and telling me about the post asking about me. I`m glad I was missed! The owner of this 2015 S8 drove 2 hours to see me. It had been abandoned and had very low mileage. Another detailer polished it and put wax on it. I was going to coat it with Feynlab Self Heal Lite to keep it looking amazing. There are no before shots. The pics were not taken with my usual Nikon either, just my phone for what it`s worth.

    The process was as follows. Wheels were cleaned with Tarminator, Zep Citrus and 505 on the tires. The wells were cleaned with LA Totally Awesome. The paint was shot with IronX (Meg`s version) and was then cleaned with Megs Hyper Wash. It was clayed and then I pulled the wheels.

    Each wheel was cleaned again using Feynlab Waterless Wash. I then chemically cleaned them with DG Squeaky Clean. Lastly they were coated with Feynlab Wheel and Caliper. The calipers (front and rear) were also cleaned and coated.

    The paint was given a one step polish with a mixture of 205 and Squeaky Clean and then coated with Feynlab SHL followed by a coat of Feynlab Top Coat. Here are my only shots.

    Nice job, especially around the emblems which I find challenging.

    Yeah, those must`ve taken a while, especially inside the "S" and "8" (which was one more reason why I removed them). At least they`re easier than the tiny little "quattro" that they used to use!

    Richy- Interesting that you got it so nice with a one-step, let alone with M205.

    What did the Squeaky Clean bring to the table (sorry, I`m not familiar with it)?
