GT-R was in pretty rough shape after some poor bodyshop work, and the owner wanted it looking proper again. 3 steps of corrective work and 28hrs later it was looking as it should.

Not sure what these spots were, but they would not wash or clay off.

Typical bodyshop work....crank up the rotary buffer with a wool pad and dry-buff the paint.....sigh....

Posted Image




Plenty of swirls in the soft GT-R paint

50/50 on the hood

Before...

After a quick 50/50 for a side-by-side comparison

Posted Image




Bumper didn't have as many swirls, but the RIDS were extensive and required heavy compounding to level out.

Posted Image




After heavy compounding the defects were all removed. The haze from aggressive compounding would be eliminated with several polishing steps to restore the gloss

Rear deck and spoiler needed a lot of work....

50/50 after initial compounding on the rear spoiler. More work was to follow to eliminate even more defects....

Posted Image

Posted Image





Clarity restored and final polishing to come in order to amp the gloss up further

Posted Image





Passenger side issues....

Some buffer-hop marks? Sure why not....the bodyshop is just batting a thousand

Posted Image




How about some severe overspray? Yep that was there too.

Posted Image

Posted Image




After compounding, hope returns

Swirls in the tails....

Killer job Jeff! That thing was beyond abused, but you'd never tell by looking at the results.
