This new offering from Audi is a beast! Featuring 591 horsepower and a sprint from 0-60 mph in just 3.7 seconds, this is no ordinary SUV. As Audi states about this vehicle, “Audi RS Q8 combines the genes of a high-performance RS model with the practicality of an SUV and the dynamic design of an Audi coupe. Featuring a bi-turbo V8 engine to deliver exhilarating performance and driving dynamics.” This particular unit came in a great color Audi calls Daytona Grey Pearl. The owner wanted to protect this rocketship while navigating the roads, so it was brought to us for a full body wrap using SunTek paint protection film followed by all protected surfaces and wheel receiving a coating of CQuartz Finest Reserve ceramic paint coating.
That’s a lot of work, so let’s jump right in. One of the first things we do with nearly every car we work on is a decontamination foam bath. Even on brand new cars, there are often surface contaminants that we need to remove before we begin applying paint protection film. This deep soaking process helps to dislodge these contaminants so that we have a clean surface to begin applying film.
This vehicle was getting a full coverage SunTek paint protection film package. That means all painted surfaces on the vehicle are covered. As you will see in the pictures that follow, we use large width pieces of material so that we can cover the panels with one piece to eliminate and visible edges or seams. Here the front fender is being protected.
You can see from this picture of the door being protected that we remove door handles and trim to get full coverage and hide and seams or edges. This is huge difference between what we do at Jay’s and what you may see other places. It is not uncommon for others to trim the material around this area to avoid removing the handle. this method leaves unsightly visible edges at an area you look at all the time. Not ideal.
Another example of full coverage with the handles removed.
For the same reasons, we remove the tail lights to wrap the product behind so that there will be no visible seams or edges. You can also see the one piece carrying on to the C pillar and roof panel.
Here you can see the handle area with the product laid down. As you can see, no edges of protection are visible.
After the paint protection film was applied, we fully coated all protected surfaces and the wheel with CQuartz Finest Reserve ceramic paint coating. CQuartz Finest Reserve has been to approve only the most talented, caring, and character driven professionals across the world, and Jay’s is proud to be part of that team. Finest Reserve provides a gloss that lasts for years, provides stain resistance, hydrophobicity, gloss, and creates a dirt-repellency not possible with any other method of protection. Finest Reserve becomes an integral part of your vehicle sheltering the finish from environmental hazards and allowing it to be washed with ease for years to come.
Part of the Cquartz Finest process is a period under infrared lamps for full curing of the product to ensure ready to provide maximum protection when the customer drives the car away.
Below you can see the final results. This car is a real stunner and now is fully protected so that it stays looking this way for many years.
