It was a huge pleasure to work on this classic R33 Skyline and in Midnight Purple too! We ended up performing a 2 stage polish on the paint and protecting it afterwards with Opti Gloss Coat. Ran into a small complication with the paint being fairly thin in some areas and couldn't get as aggressive as we would like to but everything turned out great regardless.

Hope you enjoy the pics!



Arrival




Cleaning the wheels


2 Bucket car wash


Claybarring the paint with the Nanoskin mitt


Masking off the rubber trim


And measuring the paint. This is one of the lower areas earlier mentioned




Before


After


50/50 shot




After the polishing was completed we cleaned out the left over polish out of the tighter areas with our trusty tooth pick




And finally Opti Gloss Coat is applied




Now for the finished pics








I tried to get a sun shot to show the flake but it had already set to far. This is the best I could do.




Hope you enjoyed the pics on this R33 Godzilla!

This beautiful Sepang Blue V10 R8 came in early spring but we have been so busy that I haven't had time to post it until now.

Not really much of a back story, got a call inquiring about Opti Coat Pro, client inquired with a few Audi Club members who vouched for our work, then in it came.

Long time client who previously brought us his w219 CLS 500, purchased this new w218 CLS 63 AMG and brought it in again for a 1 stage polish + Opti Gloss Coat.

Not much to mention about the car itself, the paint wasn't to bad and the 1 stage was enough to bring it up to a 8.5/9 out of 10.

On to the pics.
