This car came to me with all the typical paintwork defects resulting from not having it properly detailed for well over 2 years since the owner first took delivery. The overall paintwork looks tired and the gloss has been sucked out by layers of traffic film, scuffed marks and swirls.
My mission therefore is to restore the car’s paintwork back to it’s original showroom condition, have all the details cleaned up and apply a durable protection over it. Well timed as the FedEx man just showed up with my new toy that morning. Thanks to Rob of Gtechniq UK who has been extremely supportive and helpful that I managed to get my ‘fix’ rushed over to me in just 2 days all the way from an ice-aged UK!
Washed, decontaminated and all emblems removed as I prepare for a full paint correction process. The paint surface polishing & prep work alone took me and my team almost 30 man-hours to complete and it’s easy to see the time are well spent!
The application of C1 Crystal Lacquer can be a bit tricky, and it took me a couple of tries before I managed to nailed it just right (thanks again to Rob who kindly took all my calls early in the morning to offer assistance). And the results once it’s fully cured is simply stunning…
I like it best when the owner told me his car looked like it has been graphically mopped in a computer with an incredibly deep lustre & all panels displaying a mirror-like sheen that it literally transform the car to a showroom-worthy condition!
A look at the perfectly polished & corrected bonnet…
