2013 Audi R8 Spyder Detail

Just completed, this low mileage "Demo car" was picked up from my client to enjoy the nice weather this spring/summer. Although new(2,200 miles) the vehicle had some issues on the finish such as the true definition of RIDS as there were isolated deep inch to inch and a half scratches on almost every panel.


The beginning, this panel does not look that bad until a "After pic" is shown.

The area which took the most concentrated effort was the rear filler and blades, made of plastic and painted gloss black(Where the rest of the car is metallic Black) was destroyed as the paint is super soft.

New Mr KBM provided Rupes TK-50 bailing me out of a jam, hand polishing would not have corrected these hard to reach areas.
