Audi R8 Vinyl Wrapping and detailing
Audi R8 vinyl wrapping and detailing project. Everybody loves a supercar right?, especially a 4.2 V-8 with Audi Quattro system.
We were brought this Audi R8 MK1 in Ice Silver and was asked to colour change vinyl wrap the whole car to refresh its look. With the newly chosen colour, 3M-1080 Goss Ice Blue G247, along with Gloss Carbon Fiber accents by HEXIS, Carbon One HX30CAONEB. We kicked of the vehicle preparation process with a full paintwork cleansing wash to remove paint contaminants that were heavily bonded followed by a partial strip down for that clean installation look ensuring all of the material was installed for a paint like finish. With lights, bumpers, door handles, side panels, mirrors removed we began installation of the 3M-1080 Goss Ice Blue G247 material making sure to pay particular attention to the post heating process making sure that the edges were all firmly in place with use of Primer 94 Edge Seal.
Vinyl Wrapping The Audi R8
Side panels were vinyl wrapped using Hexis Carbon One HX30CAONEB. Alloy wheels were powder coated in Shadow Chrome gloss and brake calipers were pained in Brembo Gloss Red. Once vinyl wrap installation was complete brand new gloss black boot and bonnet badges were fitted and the car was cleaned ready for handover back to the client paying attention to the Nappa Leather seats and door cards cleaning them firstly with Dr Leather advanced formula leather cleaning wipes to remove ingrained dirt safely and then the leather was nourished with Kamikaze Collection Musashi Leather Care. All plastics were steam cleaned and dressed with Auto Glym Leather Balm. Glass was cleaned with Koch Chemie Speed Glass Cleaner
