My Back Aches - Detailed J95

Hi Folks!
First ever set of pictures from me! I recently bought a very used 2001 Toyota Land Cruiser. I loved the colour but it had suffered a respray at some stage in the past and the orange peel was horrendous. Additionally, the last owner, and maybe previous owner/s - no way of telling in Cyprus to my knowledge, kept the vehicle out doors all year, that means at least 9 months of heavy sun. A bit like you guys are having presently. So as a result, the roof, the spare wheel cover and the rear bumper were ruined and the lacquer long gone. So I just had those panels resprayed and spent about three days and nights compounding the car. There are some heavy RDS from bushes and trees in previous life and although I reduced it, the orange peel is still everywhere.

The process.
Snow foam (hand pump)
Powerwash.
2BM wash.
Iron X
Tar X
Clay
Various stages using Chemical Guys hex logic pads and Megs 105/205
Followed by AG SRP and 2 coats of EGP to body and wheels. The consumables are what I had to hand - not my first choice but economy rules in our house!

No close ups! What I did learn is that I wish I had a MF pad!














OOPS! I forgot to mention there was another 2B wash and a wipe down with Car Pro Eraser as well!

Ahhh I thought it looked a lot like the Limassol Marina Car Park, I should have realised it was somewhere in Paphos from your location.

We used to visit Paphos at least once a month (weekend breaks at The Elysium
Hotel or taking our daughter to Paphos Zoo). Always drove passed Paphos Mall but never actually did any shopping there.

I lived there for 5 years & still visit often to see family. Best thing to happen to Paphos was that Mall, even the valeting lads do a good job. Your car is looking good.
