Waxology - Renault 5 Turbo 2

Hi Guys,

At last some of you may say... I know I know... I have just been so busy that I havent had a chance to do this one.

Anyway...

I was asked to detail this Renault 5 Turbo 2 in black. Its had a nut and bolt restoration a few years ago and was once owned by a member of Travis I am led to believe.

It was delivered to me and upon a quick look you would maybe say that it looked ok (at the right angles)

Once I hjad a chance to get a good look at it under the lights heres the sort of thing I found!

Once I had evaluated the paintwork it was back out to wash it and follow this up with clay and then dry it.

6 caps of Z-7 and a few gallons of water and were ready

The wheels were new so didnt need much work.

Once the car was washed, clayed and dried it was back into the unit to appraise the situation again.

There was a fair amount of swiriting and holograming over the whole car.

I wont keep boring you with before pics!

I trialled a couple of polishes and settled on Scholl products.

Before:

The boot weighed a ton you can see the brace on the right hand side of the photo.

I had to remove a couple of bits here and there to make it accessable for polishing...

Once the polishing stage was complete I applied Zaino Z-AIO to the whole car and followed this up with 3 coats of Zaino Z-2 which I had ZFX'd the following day before the customer picked it up I applied Z-8 and Z-16 to the tyres.

Here are some of the finished pictures:

Awesome work Johnny... love these cars although if i'm honest i'm not 100% convinced by the front end of this one with all the fog lights. An old mate's dad had a pearl white turbo 2 in 100% original condition and it was stunning. Had a devil exhaust and you could hear it from half a mile away at full chat !

Phase 1 R5 GTT would be very nice in my dream garage...

Nice work think you're correct about the previous owner too, looks very familiar.
