Team Adam's Posted September 6, 2011 Share Posted September 6, 2011 Another one of those "pinch me to make sure I'm awake" kind of jobs. You might have seen this car hiding under the cover when I did my 1933 Packard Detail a few weeks back. I'll apologize now for the low quality pics in some of these shots. The detail was done over a 2 day span (along with another car I'll be posting shortly) and on day 1 my DSLR was having some issues so I had to rely on my phone to document. A big thanks to my best friend Anthony for donating a weekend to assist. Couldn't have done both cars in 2 days without his help. SUMMARY: The car is a driver, which is very cool. The owner logs a fair amount of miles in it and wasn't expecting outright perfection, just an overall improvement. The front end may be getting reshot soon as there is a pretty good amount of chips and nicks on the nose. Single stage black paint, so I knew going in I'd be burning thru a lot of pads. The end result on this was pretty gratifying. PROCESS: Waterless Wash to remove dust Clayed using Claybar & DS Wiped again with WW and fresh WW towels Spot corrected w/ focus pads / drill on deeper defects 1-2 passes per panel of SHR / Orange Pad / Flex @ setting 5 1-2 passes per panel of FMP / White Pad / PC @ setting 5 4" pads were used on the PC to correct tight spots Paint/Glass treated with Brilliant Glaze 2 coats of Americana Paste Wax Interior vacuumed w/ Metro 500 Glass cleaned with Glass Cleaner and Glass Towel Wheels polished w/ Metal Polish #1 followed by Metal Polish #2 Wheels sealed w/ beta test Speed Sealant Tires & trim treated with SVRT Engine bay wiped down with Untility Towel & Waterless Wash Engine bay dressed with SVRT where needed Paint condition wasn't bad, but this car is a driver so it has a fair amount of swirls, scratches, and RIDS.
