Hey guys, this week we had one of our regular customers drop his car off for a top up. We had originally detailed his Pearl White Golf R towards the start of last year with zero miles on the clock. The car was given the full Gtechniq protection detail, of which the paintwork sealed in Gtechniq C1 & EXOv2. Upon completion of the detail last year ourselves & Dom @ Shop’n’Shine advised our customer of the correct methods and products he’d need to look after his Golf R.
So a couple of months ago he got in touch with us, he’d planned a road trip into Europe and wanted the car to be in the best shape possible with the best protection prior to leaving. We booked the car in for last week for a re-protection detail. When we got the car in we proceeded with the wash & decontamination stage, firstly rinsing and pre-washing the car. Once we started the hand wash we felt how slick and smooth the paint still was, bearing in mind this is almost 14 months and 10,000 miles after we coated the car! The video below shows the water repellent properties of the Gtechniq EXOv2 still going strong.
Once the car had been safe-washed and decontaminated we gave the car a full wipe down and checked for swirling, bear in mind the car had been washed 30+ times over the year the car was almost perfect, there was the odd chip and light scratch in places which is inevitable on a daily driven car, it was evident that the base layer of Gtechniq C1 under the EXOv2 was doing it’s job. We then proceeded with recoating the car in Gtechniq EXO, protecting it for the next year or so! Pictures of the finished products are below.
Thanks for reading!
