Following a personal recommendation from a fellow mk7 Golf GTi owner, the owner of this GTD decided to book the car in with myself to have durable protection in the form of Carpro Cquartz UK, this is a very durable coating which once fully cured is as hard as glass and is chemical resistant.
The owner advised the supplying dealership not to valet the car, however the message never reached them and the car was washed using the usual wor car wash brush, resulting in a variety of light paint defects which would require rectifying before the coating could be applied.
The car first underwent my thorough decontamination process which is demonstrated here
I will start this write with the polishing stages, the defects were few and far between, but were unsightly in areas, and some were quite deep requiring a two stage machine polish in some areas.
After polishing the car was given a panel wipe wipedown to remove all of the polishing oils so the coating can bond with the paintwork, here are a selection of shots after the polishing stages,
Cquartz UK was then carefully applied
Carpro DLUX was then applied to unpainted and rubber trim as well as the wheels.
Following application this was left to cure for a period of 12 hours, with Polish Angel Cosmic being applied on top the following day,
And here are the finished shots,
Thanks for reading.
