Nissan GTR full correction and Polish Angel Glass Coat

Sorry for lack of write ups recently, Working 100% on my own its really hard to find time to take pictures of each stage and get around to writing it all up. Anyway I was asked by a few people on our Facebook page (Link in signature) to do a few over the next couple of weeks. So here it goes.

This Nissan GTR was brought up to myself with the view of correcting the paint as much as possible and to lay down some really good protection. As you will see the paint work was shocking due to the softness of Nissan paint and clearly hadnt been overly looked after before the current owner purchased the vehicle.

Here are some pics on arrival









There was venture shield covering the front end of the vehicle and I was asked to also remove that.



This proved very dangerous, I feel lucky to still be here.



Car was pulled outside, Pre sprayed with Maxolen pre wash









This was then rinsed, Car was snow foamed using the ever brilliant Autobrite Magi foam





This was left to dwell for around 10 mins then rinsed, I moved on to wheels and arches. Arches sprayed with G101



Wheels sprayed with Autosmart Smart Wheels



Worked in with wheel woolies, various brushes and then rinsed





Vehicle was pulled inside, dried and inspected under lights








I then clayed the car using Auto Finesse Clay and Paint readings taken. I then started to correct the paintwork using Meguiars 105, 205, Polish Angel Final Master Polish and then wiped down with IPA. Here is a few pics
You can see here the change in depth of colour without need for direct lights



Under direct lights







Exhausts cleaned using Auto Finesse Mercury and Mothers Power Cone





Finished pics (you can see exhaust here), Polish Angel Glass Coat Cosmic was used at protection



You can see how badly Nissan match there bumpers here, this is from factory! EEEKKK!!



Thanks for reading! Next up Honda NSX

Great job; those bumpers are shocking though.

Did the owner not demand a respray from Nissan!?
