This 1 series came to us in pretty good shape. Not much polishing was needed however a thorough cleaning was necessary and proper prep on the paint and wheels were needed to apply Aquartz and Opti Coat - something the customer was keen on as this is a heavily used daily and also sees the track time.

Adam's All Purpose sprayed generously on the engine bay



After
Engine was dressed with Adam's In and Out Spray




Bug and tar was evident on the nose of the car. I used the 1Z einszett Anti-Insekt Bug + Tar Remover




After




As you can see the Iron Cut was needed on this 1.









The 1 was washed with W99 and then rinsed well.



Clayed the windows and paint



I was still able to pull contaminants off the paint


Used 3m Adhesive remover to pull tar off the bottom of the car





As mentioned before the car didn't need much in terms of correction. We used Sonax Perfect Finish to prep the paint for Aquartz
