Today my work associate allowed me a day on his car as he had told me that the paintwork was bad on it...I didnt believe him when he said it had dulled down and gone milky but i was in for a shock when i turned up this morning...
Have you ever packed ya kit and arrived and thought oh no i didnt bring something and you wish you had...Fast cut plus was left at home and i regretted it badly...
Wheels and roof being replaced next week so no real attention to them..
Absolutely horrendous paintwork and scratched and swirled badly
The paintwork has nothing in it at all no reflection or flake just dull and muted..
I was well chuffed :thumb: although i have never seen anything like this before...The paint also was sticky??
Lower half citrus degreased
wheels cleaned with wheel brightener as anything else would just laugh..
outers swissvax brush
callipers swissvax brush
small amount of tardis added for tar spots
all clean no lsp going on as refurbing..
sprayed off and washed then clayed
sprayed off , rewashed
and quick detailed
and dryed to a lovely matt finish..
Paintwork measured and plenty of paint on..Geoff has owned from new and no bodywork repairs done ..
Front wing tackled first...Fx2 pad and 80349 just to see how it works...in full sun aswell today so hard with the polish and heat..
This combo did nothing so changed over to fx1 pad and ip.
Right hand side of front wing after 3 passes..
Fuel cap 1 pass.
Front wing the best i could safely achieve and i thought it was good
then final finished to refine it and get a massive gloss back
and wiped off
and i was pleased with what it came up like and so was Geoff , he was actually going to get a respray..
Then ploughed on with the rest of the car
and wing and door corrected and un corrected
carrying on correction
and rear wing not corrected
After Final Finish
Wax today was Z Destiny
Buffed off after about 4 minutes max due to sun..
