Default Audi S4/RS4 Widebody - Prep - Paint Correction

Much like the other one we did early this year.....

This car belongs to another customer that has always brought his cars to the next level, this is a 2002 Audi S4 Avant that was converted to an RS4 using all factory parts coming from Germany. Not sure if he has changed his mod list yet but I believe by the time this is done it will be 600-700 crank hp!

After the body panels were installed it went in for paint....below is what we needed to do

We wrapped:

1. Side skirts
2. Top of rear bumper
3. Full Front bumper
4. Gas Cap
5. Door Handles

The total time this took was 50 hours with the 3 of us, Dan, Tom, and I. Long days and nights to prep this one for H20.

What was done -
Exterior

- Wheels were prepped and cleaned
- Tires were spritzed down with P21S Total Autowash and washed down
- Wheel wells were spritzed down with P21S Total Autowash
- Wash down and rinsed
- Door jambs were cleaned up

- Rubber and Plastics Treated
- Exterior windows and mirrors cleaned and sealed
- Exhaust tips cleaned
- Engine detailed
