Pink to Red_Opel Astra '99

Greetings from Turkey

Here is My first pink to red attempt

The front bumper was hand-painted with spray paint. Due to the owner's request I didn't touch it. Just make a go with hand.




















During and 50/50s













And the happy end














The progress and used products,

- 1st pass with Virtus 413 (via AG lambswool)
- 2nd pass with Virtus 473 (via AG lambswool)
- some areas made with Menz203 (via 3M green cutting)
- inside and engine cleaned with Tornador Gun
- FK1000P used for protection (2 layers)
- Trims detailed with ATAS Fasco (an Italian brand some of you maybe know it)
- Headlights done with wet-sand 400-3000 step by step. But the inside of them was very bad so i couldn't catch the desired results .
But it was enough for the owner

Sorry for the lack of inside pics
Hope you like it. All c&c will be appreciated.

Thats a great turnaround, two coats of fk1000 is spot on, saves it from the elements from oxidation again.

Weather must be excellent in turkey, hear in uk is nice as well.

I was succesful to convince the owner that if the car doesnt have a monthly FK1000P operation sooner of later it will be in the same condition again.
So I have booked the car for montly wax protection.
And I also gave him a small amount of Hydrorep (ATAS branded quick detailer) to use after washes by himself.

Yes indeed is very sunny on this time of year, we can even say very hot
You can cook eggs on the asphalt
