Arrow R35 GTR- Gleammachine.

A straightforward step by step, exterior all surface "Protectional Detail" to a GTR R35.

Upon Arrival.







Starting with a pre rinse to the alloys.



Cleaned using various brushes.









Vehicle pre-sprayed using AS Hazsafe.



Pressure rinsed, then citrus APC applied through the lance and left to dwell shortly.



Various parts of the exterior trim cleansed.





Washed using the typical safe practices, then de-tarred.



Rinsed again with pressure and finally with an open flow.





Dried using Plush towels and the blower.





Paintwork and alloys clayed.



Typical of the R35- carbon staining from the exhausts.



Back area machined using Z-PC Fusion.



Exhausts polished using Optimum metal polish.





Arches treated using a waterbased dressing.



Paintwork pre-cleansed using Raceglaze pre-wax.



The rear area that had been machined with ZPC (waterbased) was sealed using Nanolex Pro, to aid future cleaning of the carbon deposits.



1 layer of Swissvax Shield applied and left to cure for a couple of hours, before removal.

Shuts polished & sealed with Werkstat Strong.



Interior glass cleaned.



Exterior glass pre-cleansed with Prime & sealed with Nanolex UGS.



Plastic and rubber trim refreshed/protected using SV Nano-Express.





Blackfire WD Metal sealant applied to the alloys and calipers.



Tyres dressed with SV Pneu.



Any polish residue removed from the edges of the front end Ventureshield, followed by a final wipedown using CP Reload.



Final Results.



















Thanks for looking, comments welcomed and appreciated.

It's a stunner, my favorite bit has to be the Exhaust tips too, they just look sexy when there all shinny. I'm doing a friends black one at weekend, cant wait.

The exhausts are

How would you compare Optimum MP with Megs NXT Metal and P21S ? Were the exhausts polished with wire wool or MF cloth.

Thank you, it looks stunning !

Re: R35 GTR- Gleammachine.

Excellent finish. I cant think of a more aggressive looking car to appear in your rear view mirror

Glad your liking HS, the exhausts are a big focal point on the car, so deserve to look there best.

Standard tailpipes, this one has had some tuning tweaks in the middle boxes though, not visible from the outside.

I always do these exhausts with just a MF due to the mirror finish, been very impressed with OMP, it's a polish based product and has a longer working time, as opposed to NXT being more of a creamy compound.
