    PRD vs 80 Coupe

    owner wanted an enhancement detail done on his 80 coupe as he had seen my car around few weeks ago and asked how it was so shiny and clean(which was nice of him) so we got talking about what i do and he asked if he could have his done to get the swirls and some marks out of his car so an enhancement was done on the car, owner only wanted his paint looking tip top so no interior shots or engine bay.

    there was lots of damage on the car and lots of deep marks and dents which the owner said he was getting them repaired soon but he wanted the car looking good which is hopefully what i had done for the owner.

    not many pics of the befores as i had the car late in the day and needed to get a move on.

    products used were:

    G101
    Tardis
    Billberry
    Snow foam
    Zymol shampoo
    Sonus clay
    Rotary
    Lake country yellow cuttin pad
    Lake country finnesing pad
    RD85 3.02
    FG 500
    RD85(final finish
    Paint readings were in the 200 region going up to high 200's so plenty to work with

    doorshuts and sills were cleaned with APC and brushes aswel as all gaps and badges when snowfoam was applied to the car, sorry no pics but i was up against it






    once inside and under lights i seen the full extent of the damage on the paint with heavy swirls and deep marks everywhere. this was going to be fun. bonnet was hit with FG500 3 times and marks taken out with 3.02 and a lake country lambs wool pad





    deep marks which didnt warrant going too extreme on the bonnet

    50/50




    nice clarity and reflection

    this door was extremely bad and took alot of work to sort it out after having damage on the panel it wasnt easy







    after some hard work i had decent results from the FG500


    good results apart from that huge scratch


    boot spoiler






    unfortunately now my camera then went dead on me so no more of the stages
    finished car

    door has been damaged so think it was changed as its slightly different colour and its dropped a bit


    that wheel is badly pitted its not dirty lol

    car then finished with final finish and waxed with DoDo blue velvet

    thanks for looking

    That's some pretty epic correction there chap! Those marks look deep!

    "FG 500", Menzerna? Pretty aggressive?

    yes jim the menz FG500, it is pretty agressive but the pics dont show the full extent of the damage on all the panels, this paint was HARD work mate.

    the FG impressed me. 3.02 was giving good results but i need to go more agressive on this car.

    by far the worst paint i have worked on

    Have you used FactCut+? If so, how does the FG compare do you think? (dont know much about it myself!)

    It looks a very nice turnaround chap!

    yes mate i have Fast cut and it gives me good results when needed, only got the FG the other day so wanted to try it out and a perfect example to try it out on. its not as dry as Power gloss which makes it go a bit further mate. overall im impressed with it so shall use it when needs be but i like fast cut also so all depends on what vehicle i do(im always doing Audis lol)

    got a peugeot 206 next week so ill compare both on the car and see which one performs better.

    have you had much time with the FG500 then jim?
