Yet another JDM legend came in to us for some detailing and paint restoration. We had already known the car for quite a while and understand that there was a paint job involved. But due to the quality of the paint job, the rare clean finish was already done on the body. After driving many miles and going through many washes, its finally time for the annual restoration to keep the car always looking spanking new.

The car had been at our place for the entire night as the owner of this sweet ride had gone to work. In the morning, we started our work.

We diagnose the paint surface for obvious contamination. Here you can see the watermark stains.

Some light swirls were found on the bonnet.

On the boot, we also found some light swirls.

Black had always been a challenge to fix, here you see some swirls and water on the rear spoiler.

Even more visible swirls damages on the rear spoiler.


Our initial spotted revealed some very minor, next to unnoticeable oxidation on the headlights, so we did the essential steps to remove the oxidation.
Check out the Before.

After. Some very minor gloss differences.

After paint restoration. Swirls no longer visible.

Same panels that we showed you the watermark stains. No more stains.

Swirls Before.

Swirls after.

Watermark and Swirls on spoiler deck (Before)

After paint correction.

On another section of the spoiler deck. (Before)

After.


We did some minor detailing on the steering wheel since we had some free time and also because the wheel is filthy! (on the left: undetailed; on the right: cleaned.)

Dirty oil stains had edged into the texture of the metal.

After detailing.

On the right side of the steering wheel. Similar results.

Momo wording clear and clean!



As a result of a close to 10 hours detailing session and paint restoration. We present to you the finishing outcome. Check it out.

Belum try belum tau, many thought i am expensive until they asked and i quote. I actually charge according to size and not brand or skill. Given my skill level into consideration, I charge rather cheap and im rather underpaid.

Hahaha, ok maybe next time then. Right now my car is already in decent condition, at least good enough already for my eyes and not as bad with water spots as before. I sent to a saloon nearby my house twice already and after those treatments it already looks much better now. :biggrin: Lucky my car is also silver so swirls and water spots not as obvious as dark colored cars.
