Audi R8 Correction/Ceramic Treatment by Oakes

A Daytona Gray Audi R8 coupe recently came through for a full paint correction as well as full engine bay polishing, wheel/caliper treatment and a triple layering of Cquartz ceramic coating. The vehicle is clearly driven and the owner wanted the best protection possible for it once we got it looking the best we possibly could.

Over the course of five working days we had two of the wheels refinished for curb rash, cleaned, treated and coated the wheels, brake calipers, exhaust tips, all engine bay carbon fiber, vehicle glass, engine and bumper vents and the paint itself in 2-3 layers of Cquartz after correction. The pictures documented the process very well, check them out for yourself!

Vehicle condition as it arrived

Wheels before, removed from the vehicle so I could clean and ceramic coat the barrels of the wheels as well as the brake calipers. After pictures are post cleaning, clay, Ironx, and ceramic coating applied two times.



As stated above, the wheel wells were cleaned, treated and the calipers were ceramic coated twice as well.


Exhaust tips were also cleaned, polished and ceramic coated.


After all of the above was completed, the car was completely taped and masked off, all vents covered, no exposed plastics or openings. You can see for yourself here!

The paint was then inspected and depth readings were taken where we found an average depth of 116 micron throughout the car. It had its fair share of marring and swirling as the picture below show:
