  • Skyline detail with horrendous ending :(

    Well after loads and loads of saving my mate Donkey managed to get the the car he had always wanted....Admittedly it wasnt a gtr because i think the insurance would have killed him but none the less the car was a stunning example in pearlescent white and a first for me to play with..

    You may remember donkeys old car the MR2 i did last year for him



    Alex and me had arranged this for months and i said as soon as you get it bring it round as im a massive fan of Jap cars..

    He turned up early and the weather wasnt looking good but we managed to get it all washed and prepped before it hammered down..





    Gave the car a good citrus degrease first





    Then foamed it








    and leaving 5 minutes to dwell





    car then sprayed off and started on the wheels





    then the car was washed 2 bucket method





    sprayed off and clayed





    and finding green paint splats everywhere although only about 1 to 2mm in size








    so it took me quite a while to remove them





    Car then rewashed and all bodykit edgeing cleaned out with swissvax brush





    loads of trapped dry dirt from the years brushed out for a clean cut line





    and sprayed off





    car finished off and dried in the garage as the rain was spitting now and light was poor





    Once dried i taped up.

    Me and Alex spoke about the paintwork as there were certain areas i was really concerned about with slight lifting under the pearl and didnt feel comftable cutting most areas to be fair so we agreed to just high gloss polish the car although there was a good 200 microns of paint on it all over

















    Once the car was final finished i then decided to give an ipa 50/50 wipedown and then clean and prepare with Virtua Bond








    Next onto Zaino z2pro which i know will give the glassy look im after on this pearl white




    applied in straight lines across the roof and down the sides








    this is left for an hour and in the mean time it gives me ample opportunity to do seals , zorst and glass














    Zaino then buffed off








    and then finally z8 for the extra 5%











    Wheels zaino,ed aswell and tyres megsed...





    All faded black trim black wowed and buffed off with damp paper








    FINAL RESULTS


















































    Now unfortunately Alex loved the car and the final results but guttingly not long after i got a call from Alex who was slightly upset and had hit a patch of oil on the dual carriage way and the car had gone 360 wrecking one whole side...The car is now off the road until Alex can work out where to go next

              Not very because it was wet conditions and literally before he set off we discussed the rear end on these cars , he is a safe driver...

                I'd be gutted.....a car like that won't be cheap to repair.....hate to think what the price of the front bumper and splitter would be.

                      Marc this is the guy I met at the DLR station with you and Macca? It's a real shame I've always liked GTRs and to see such a nice car like that get wrecked.. well gutted for him, hope he can get it back on the road.
