Happy Chinese New Year to all my Chinese friends!


It's been awhile since my last write up here viewtopic.php?f=26&t=26793 but I wanted to show you some recent work completed this winter.


This C63 came to me after the owner had seen some of my write ups and inquired on what level of paint correction I thought his car might need. After a few conversations via text message we determined we would go with a 1 stage polish. And that we would do it on Jan. 20, 2013.



The day of the car came with a huge sheet of snow on the hood lol and here are the first pics.








Starting with the wheels as usual




Getting in the wheels wells




Next up was washing with the 2 bucket method




Cleaning inside the gas




While the car was still wet I clayed the paint


Paint was actually in pretty good shape.



Dried the car




Then took some paint measurements








Rubber trim was masked to prevent against burning the trim




And here are the before and afters. All in all I don't think the paint was in terrible condition and I think the 1 stage improved the paint to make it an 8 out of 10. It's never perfect as some scratches are too deep to take out. The combo I decided to go with was FG400 and a B&S Yellow Pad. Here are the results.

Here is a 50/50 shot. The left side is unpolished and the right side is polished.

There was also some sort of oxidization on the chrome piece of the trunk that I wanted to improve and was happy with the result.

Unmasked the trim


Cleaned off the polishing oils with IPA


And applied a sealant via machine





While the sealant was curing I attended to other areas such as...

Dressing the tires


Cleaning the windows


And mirrors




And here the afters, just before the sunset. 4pm something sheesh! :)





















And finally my last two favourite pics






I hope you enjoyed seeing the process as usual and I wish everyone a healthful and prosperous year in the Year of the Snake.

:)
