Trufacts Racing Silver 350Z Stage 1 Detail

We had the pleasure of working on a nice 350Z a few weeks ago and the customer brought the car to us to get a Stage 1 Polish Job done on it along with our wheel package which includes removing the wheels and polishing the wheel faces along with de-greasing and dressing the inside of the wheel wells

Products used:

Wash
P21S Total Auto Wash (http://www.detailedimage.com/wax.php...000-ml-Kit-S1/) in the Gilmour Foamaster II Foam Gun (http://www.detailedimage.com/wax.php...allon-Tank-S1/)
Clay Magic Fine Clay
Chemical Guys Quick Detailer

Tools used on wash:
Sheepskin Washmits
Various MF Towels
EZ Detail Brush
Two 5-Gallon Buckets + Grit Guards
Various brushes with stiff bristles (used on wheel wells.)
(http://www.detailedimage.com/wax.php...d-Insert-P119/)
(http://www.detailedimage.com/wax.php...P220/16-oz-S1/) (http://www.detailedimage.com/wax.php...P480/100-g-S2/)



Interior


Tools used on interior:
Various brushes
Vacuum Cleaner + attachments
303 Aerospace Dressing
Chemical Guys Stripper Scent Air Freshener
Poorboys Leather Rejuvenation and Dressing
MF Towels


Wheel Dressing
Sonax Used to clean and strip contaminants
Poorboys Bold and Bright
Meguiars 205 Compound used for polishing the face of the wheels
P21s metal polish for the lips

Tools used to dress wheels:
Multiple Foam Applicators
Porter Cable with a green LC 4" Pad
Microfiber Towels

Polishing
M105/205
Chemical Guys Ez Cream Glaze
Blackfire Wet Diamond Sealant
LC 6.5" Orange Pad
LC 6.5 Black Pad
LC 6.5" Red Pad

Tools used in polishing process:
PC 7424 Polisher
Flex Polisher
Various MF Towels
2 500w Halogen lights


Tires Removed and wheel wells were cleaned:
Chemical Guys APC
303 Aerospace used as dressing

Tools used on engine:
engine wiped down and dressed with 303 Aerospace

.................................................. .................................................. ....

When we go the car it appeared to be in good condition so we got started on the wash and used the foam gun with the two bucket method to start stripping off all of the contaminants that where on the car.





After cleaning the vehicle we took off the tires one by one to clean and polish them.




Finish Result was much better We used a LC Green 4" Pad with some 205 Polish

We used multiple brushes to clean the inside of the wheel wells to get them looking new again.


After the wheels we used Clay Magic Fine clay to finish up the prepwork for polishing.


After we had prepped the vehicle this is what was laying underneath.





We used the M105 Compound to go over the car for the single stage polish with LC Orange pads. Here are some 5050 shots.

After Polishing:





After the polishing was done we used Chemical Guys EZ Creme Glaze to get the paint ready for the Blackfire Wet Diamond Sealant. And the Sunlight from the next day shows the results














The end results were very impressive and the silver did very well hiding the defects on this car before we got started. But after we were finished the car looked better than it probably did on the showroom floor.

Man, always impressed with the work done. The fact that you're wearing a Nismo jacket just sets it off for me lol.

I want to apologize for the lack of pictures, it was quite cold when we were working on this Z and we were in work mode to get out of the cold ASAP, along with silver is hard to get pictures of imperfections on.

When the car first arrived it didn't look too bad, minus the brownish tint it had. The paint was quite contaminated and felt like sandpaper when performing the "bag test" which is why you see the clay bar as brown instead of white as it should be. The end result we were quite happy with, and the paint is now smooth as glass! I'm glad we were able to work on this car, and for all you Z/G guys, this was a great and relatively easy to work on and with, and great results were produced.

Amazing work on the wheels! I never imagined scratches like that could be removed.

No problem on the pics

The foam gun works great for applying the citrus wash properly thats about all we use it for.
