968 Cs

Thought i'd make a bit of an effort and do a write up, being as how this is a DW members car.

Basically the single stage Speed Yellow paint on this had become quite faded in areas and needed a bit of TLC, and while it was being detailed it was a good opportunity for me to apply the Club Sport decals.

So on arrival








Straight on with my usual routine of wheels cleaned with AS Smart Wheels, car then foamed with Carbrite Bug Away, rinsed and washed with Z7, rinsed and clayed with Z-18.

On to the inspection with the Brinkmann, yellow isn't the easiest of colours to catch swirls on camera with, this is about the best shot i could get



For the correction i used a variety of different pad and polish combo, as the car has had some paint done on various panels over its 14 odd year life.

Bonnet 106 FA / Megs polishing pad

Front wings 3M EFC / Megs polishing pad

Passenger door M105!! / Menzerna compounding pad - Loving the 105

Roof and rear quaters 3M FCP / 3M Orange pad, followed with UF SE

Front and rear bumpers IP 3.02 / Sonus 4" polishing pad

Tried to capture a 50/50



Once all the polishing was completed the car was given an IPA wipedown, i then applied the decals to both sides using a fairly strong shampoo mix in a spray bottle to aid positioning - think i got them on pretty square.



Z-AIO was applied paintwork and wheels, followed by 2 x ZFX'd Z-5 and a Z-8 wipedown

Tyres dressed with Z-16

Glass polished with DG Nu-Glass, arches dressed with AS Finish



















Cheers for looking

Bryan
