Back in early 2017 our studio in Knaresborough, North Yorkshire took the delivery of this brand new Volkswagen Golf R Estate. With only 167 miles on the clock, it was the perfect opportunity to protect it. In our studio to receive a partial Gtechniq protection, the car had the following sealed:
- Paint protection using Crystal Serum Black that comes with a 7 year guarantee
- Alloy protection – inside the barrel’s and on the faces of the wheel
- Exterior glass protection
At Reep Yorkshire, should you choose to have a full protection, or partial protection, we will always give your car the “full works”. This is across all of the services we offer.
Once inside, following a safe wash, we loaded it straight onto our ramp to fully machine the paintwork. Following this, we removed the ‘Cadiz’ alloys to fully protect them using Gtechniq C5 ‘Wheel Armour’. Now, brake dust and other road dirt can easily be removed from the wheel surface. Whilst the wheel’s are removed, we also thoroughly cleaned the wheel arches, brake callipers, disks and suspension system. You don’t want a clean wheel and a dirty wheel arch!
Above you can see our Gtechniq Approved Detailer, Adam, removing any excess of C5 from the inside of the barrel to make sure it is a smooth, even coverage. Based on a similar technology to Gtechniq’s C1 Crystal Lacquer and C4 Permanent Trim Restorer, C5 provides the best protection for wheels, whether standard or alloys.
As you can see from the images in the gallery, once applied the paintwork can achieve an even higher level of gloss! Machining will help remove swirl marks and enhance the paintwork, but the Crystal Serum system has been designed to take it up a notch. The car now has 7 years of protection, and it will still look like it should in 7 years time*. Rain water, road grime and dirt can now be easily removed from the paint surface. There are now no worries of anything sticking to the paint surface.
