56k Icon *V3* Renault Safrane Baccara V6 Biturbo

Hello Everybody


I just want to share you a detail I done at the end of 2007.


I have to do an exclusive Renault Safrane V6 BiTurbo Baccara (full options), with a lovely green (with violets reflects) but it was in a very bad state...

I have two days to do this beauty, let's go!


Wash & decontamination

Some pics before a good wash with Meguiar's Shampoo Plus :



The front is in a very bad condition (stone chips and "wall chip" ) :



The wash done, I use Polyclay to remove contaminations... It wasn't useless... just after a door...



Ok, halogen switched on, go to see the paint :







I'm Happy!!! A pretty correction to do!



Buffer switched on...

I had problems for finishing, the paint was very very not hard, everything done scratches, for example a good Microfiber done fine scratches with a little pressure, that was incredible. So for finishing I have to hang the Makita to do the minimum pressure to dont have holograms, it was taking me 1 day for just finishing! It was done with 3M 09376 (3M blue pad).


Pics after polishing (no wax)
















LSP (Last Step Products)

I have put 476s on wheels (cause the were fragile).



I use Swissvax Cleaner Fluid followed by Meguiar's #20 and after I use Blackfire Midnight Sun Ivory, I like the results.












Some pics outdoor :






Thanks for reading.
(sorry for the mistakes, my english isn't perfect).

Looks like a steroid injected Mk 1 Laguna.... I'm kinda fond of these big buses.

Lots of luxury when new. Very rare to see one in such good nick..

Well done that man!!!!!!!
