5 min with 16yr old paint


Recommended Posts

I thought I'd play around with my daily driver which rarely sees washes anymore..

2000 Toyota celica gts. 171,000 miles.

I took 5 minutes to see what I could do on a quarter of the hood. Here it goes:


Proof you can bring back some life to some very rough paint with minimal effort and time. Is it perfect, no but it's shiny :)


The clay bar was pink when I finished so I'm not sure what's left of the clear coat.

Strip wash:



Clay bar:



Revive hand polish:

Thanks Jason. The brilliant glaze really added some pop after the revive. The LPS seemed to hide some of the swirls. If you follow the reflection from the lights above the car the swirl and haze gets better with each layey. Night and day difference in person.



I'd like to buy a machine and use this car for learning.


Right qtr of good was the area I worked on.
