Another wetsand detail for the Autosport show.

Hi All

We were recently commissioned by Steeda UK to prepare this stunning magnetic grey 2017 Mustang for the Autosport show at the Nec in Birmingham.

Steeda UK are a supplier of Mustang and Focus performance parts along with Velgen wheels, when asked to prepare the car Steeda didnt mess around asking us to get the car to the best it could possibly be.

Well anybody that knows me probably know that I own an s550 Mustang myself and the one thing that bugs me with these cars is the amount of orange peel in the factory paintwork "Not horrendous but bugs anyone with a keen eye for perfection"...anyway we agreed on a wet sand to tone down the orange peel and then Ceramic coat the car with CQuartz finest reserve of which three layers were applied.

Also the Calipers were painted Magnetic Grey to match the bodywork and a little trickery applied to the coil covers under the bonnet, in total some 60+ man hours went into preparing and getting the car show ready.

A few pictures below from start to finish starting with the normal eash down and decon process.



Once the car was dried off the wheels were removed and re-washed to make sure the inner barrels were perfectly clean of all contaminents, these were then dried and panel wiped for the application of Siramik HR heat resistant coating and cured under the IR Lamps





Next was the calipers to be prepped and painted magnetic with new Brembo decals.







Once the calipers were painted the coil covers had the "Powered by Ford" painted in red.









Next was the removal of the chrome 5.0 badges as these were to be replaced with Black ones after the wet sanding process.



Now as time was against us and we only had three and a half days to complete this car I didnt get as many snaps as I would have liked too with the sanding process, readings were between 120 and 150 microns before the task was under taken, between 5-8 readings were taken per panel.. the roof was Not sanded.















Once the car was corrected of all sanding marks it was then re-foamed, dried and panel wiped down, then refined the paintwork until we were happy with the finish and panel wiped again.

A few shots after the refinement stages.







Now the vehicle was moved next door panel wiped down and the coating and curing process completed.











Now a few pictures of the finished car.

















Although the following pictures are not from the above steeda Mustang I thought I would share these with you from previous Mustangs that we have had the pleasure of slightly customising the interior and engine bays of, not to everyones taste I appreciate but does take the bland look that the interiors and engine bays have.. thats just my opinion of course.

























If you got this far thanks for looking,

ATB
Andy

I was just about to ask full calipers removal for the painting? Clearly was...proper job the car looks great. Don’t really like American cars but this is subtle and tasteful after removing a few things etc.

That is a superb transformation and the 50 / 50 shots of sanded / polished is just immense...

Looks superb on the outside

Smashing job as we'd expect Andy

Nice shade of red on the calipers too.

Not keen on the interior customisation's but can appreciate why someone would want to jazz up the rather boring/dull standard interior.

cheers

Chris

What causes the orange peel to have a poor finish. If you can do the colour good why not a good finish with the lacquer
