Thread: Enhancement Detail - RenaultSport Megane R26.R in Glacier White

  1. #1

    Enhancement Detail - RenaultSport Megane R26.R in Glacier White

    Today saw me travel to a sunny but chilly Shrewsbury to [email protected]'s unit, to meet my mate Dale and spend some time giving his recently acquired R26.R some love ahead of it being put to bed for Winter.


    The aim of the day was to restore a bit of life into the paint and lay down some solid protection for it. Dale was also planning to make some small additions cosmetically.


    The car itself is a firm personal favourite of mine and a great car to detail, as you have plastic windows, plastic wings, titanium exhaust, carbon fibre bonnet and red wheels - certainly very different to most cars.


    We got cracking about 8:30 - some befores:

    Wheels first:

    Smart Wheels and EZ Brush on rear of wheels:

    Swissvax Brush of face and calipers:

    G101 on tyres:

    and rinsed!

    Foamed next with Megs Hyper Wash:

    Shuts and sills worked with G101, washed with Auto Finesse Lather and rinsed:

    Next I tackled the bonded contamination, of which there seemed to be very little. Dale has clayed the car very thoroughly recently, so IronX did very little, aside from the boot:

    and the bottom of the petrol cap...

    Tardis and claying was not needed at all...


    Next, the .R was moved inside, ready to be assessed for paint thickness and defects:

    Healthy, average readings of about 172 on most panels:

    General idea of the swirling - it's so bad, that it appears to be a single line in the pic, but the swirling was very heavy:

    After playing with various combinations on Rotary, I settled for the Megs MF system via DA, which was giving me 90% correction or so from a single set:



    DSC01061 by RussZS, on Flickr


    The correction shots are a little disappointing, but the difference is hopefully clear:

    DSC01077 by RussZS, on Flickr


    Quite severe defect on the bonnet...

    A couple of hits of Megs 205 via Rotary and 3M Yellow Pad:

    Some random carbon fibre pics

    Boot after:

    Before the ZAIO cleanse to prepare the paint for Z2, Dale added the missing vinyl graphics to his car:

    After:

    During:

    After:

    We also added the updated RenaultSport logo:

    We finished up with Mint Rims on the wheels:

    ZAIO base and Z2 on the paint:

    AF Crystal was used on the glass and a final wipedown of Z8 on the paint:

    I also had some spare time to do something with the rear lights, so before:
