like to say hi

hi guys

i got a PM on another forum from bucciali telling my about your forum.bucciali spotted my post on the detailing work that i did on a spyker and asked if the pics could come on here and well yes of course they can i would be more than happy for you guys to see them

so here is the pics guy`s

before











as you can see its a bit of a mess

so we took the paint readings on all panels and downloaded to the laptop

then masked up the car using nearly 3 rolls of tape

the front needed wet sanded along with the rear off side qaurter panel as we felt the state of the paint was that bad the only way to get a perfect finish was wet sanding





wet sanding we used meg`s unigritt 2500

after the wet sanding we got the makita`s out with cutting pads and the power gloss

we also had to use the power gloss on most of the other panels

next was the menzerna IP with a 3m polishing pad for the whole of the car

after the IP we went for the menzerna final finishing polish with a 3m finishing bad

after


we finished the taping of the car at 10 and we finished the paint work corection at 5 :wall: onlly stopping for 15 mins for lunch

once we were happy with the paint it was time to cleanse the paint work

so out with the HD cleanse this helps the wax to bond with the paint and for this we dont use any other product

so now the paint work was cleansed it was time to get the vintage out
as always the vintage was put on with my bare hands

the wheels were also treated to the HD cleanse and vintage

the glass was cleaned with the HD cleanse

all alloy was polished up

the head lights were de swirled

here`s some after pics hope you like
