Default First detail project: Friend's 2004 Twilight Blue G35

First detail project: Friend's 2004 Twilight Blue G35
By Eurocougar


I offered to help a friend restore their totally swirled G35 and get some experience on polishing paint. I used a PC 7424 and Wolfgang TSR for polishing:

Wash:
Meguiar's 62 car wash and conditioner
Cobra "The bone" wash mitt
Wheels: used an older MF towel

Dry:
Cobra HD guzzler drying towel

Polishing:
PC 7424 with LC pads
Wolfgang Total Swirl Remover 3.0 kit

Wolfgang Total Swirl Remover 3.0 on LC Orange 6.5" pad
Wolfgang Finishing Glaze on LC White 6.5" pad

Sealant:
Wolfgang Deep Gloss Paint Sealant on LC Blue 6.5" pad

Wax:
Pinnacle Souveran on LC Red 6.5" pad (was pressed for time or else I would've done it by hand)

Wheels:
DP wheel glaze

Tires:
Wolfgang Tire Gel

Interior was recently detailed so she didn't want me to work on it.

Before: Not a great pic of before but I wanted to show you the swirls I was dealing with:



Picture of spoiler with heavy oxidation or buildup:

Pictures after first stage of polishing:









Pictures of hood of car finished with sealant:





Finished with a coat of Souveran:









Picture of headlight using WG plastik lens cleaning system: It was severely scratched. What you see is after only 1 application of headlight kit.



Overall pictures don't do it justice. The short days here make it difficult to get day time shots.

I hope you enjoyed them!

On a side note I dislike the fact that the PC buffs your hands. I'll be looking to get a Flex 3401 orbital buffer next.
