    Sunkist Orange Ford Taurus gets glossed!

    Had a repeat client bring in his wifes metallic orange Ford Taurus after she saw how his Corvette turned out. I have to say this color was down right amazing in the sun. Overall it wasn`t too bad and I was able to get it back in shape.

    Wash/Prep


    Hyperwash, Nanoskin fine towel, IGL Iron


    Wheels/Tires


    Mckees foaming wheel cleaner gel, LATA, Hydro Blue, Hyper Dressing on the liners and Mckees gloss tire gel on tires


    Engine Bay


    LATA, Hyper dressing


    Correction/Finishing polish- I cut with 3D One using my Rupes 21 Mark ll with Megs microfiber cutting pad. I left the residue on the surface and had my BOSS 21mm with a Rupes yellow pad setup and added a drop of 3D ONE and finish polished with that then wiped off and proceeded on. My Adams swirl killer mini was also used in this manner. This was able to knock it out very efficiently.


    LSP- IGL Poly 1 year coating


    Interior- Mckees 70/30 leather shampoo, Mckees total interior cleaner, Mckees carpet and upholstery cleaner, IGL dash interior protectant


















    IGL Authorized Coating/Kenzo Installer

    Looks great!! Hm that paint needs to decide whether it wants to be red or orange.

    Thanks bud. I agree. It has a cool flop depending on the lighting.

    Ford does this with several colors that don’t really match what they name the color. This is a much better flip color than the “Saphire Blue” that Ford used on it’s trucks in the late 90’s. 90% of the time it was as purple as the day is long. No resemblance to anything blue. It was bad. My father ordered a F150 Lariat with all the bells and whistles of the day, he waited several months for it to be built. The first time I saw it I about puked. He wouldn’t make them keep it. His comment was I only keep them 2 years anyway. I had to look at that truck for the next 2 years. I insisted on driving whenever we went golfing, didn’t want to be seen in it by people that I knew.
