    COBRA (PIC HEAVY)

    We were asked late last year to take a look at 20+ year old Cobra's paint. The owner built the car from scratch way back in the day. The car had won the odd show in it's prime, as most of the part's were sourced direct from the good old USA.

    Product's Used.

    ph Neutral Snow Foam.
    Zaino Z-18 Clay
    Menz fg500, po85rd3.02, p0106fa
    3M 50417
    LC ccs pads.
    IPA
    PB black Hole
    DDJ S N Wax
    Megs nxt Metal Polish
    PB wheel sealent.


    The car was very clean as only used when weather permitted (Summer Months)

    Weekend 1.



    Pretty Clean Paint



    After drying the car we rolled the car inside to take a closer look at the paint, the owner said over the year's he has noticed alot of orange peel on the panel's. So we hit the light's to take a look

    Orange peel was very evident along with major swirls.



    The orange peel was letting down the paint even after a few passes.

    3M 50417 Fast Cut.


    To Knock back the orange peel, wet sanding was required.



    Wet sanding done. Weekend 2.

    First of we tried a few passes with Menz fg500 using a LC CCS Yellow Cutting Pad. But we felt the Menz was not giving us the results we wanted.

    50/50 Menz fg500.


    So it was time to pull out 3M 50417 Fast Cut Plus.

    Result's were Good.



    After bending over for what felt like day's we had hit the right combo and was time to start working on the sides of the car.. Lift time..





    The final details









    We were unable to take the car out side due to a very late finish (9pm)
    I will update as soon as possable.

    Hi Jim, well as you know this car has no lacquer (solid colour)
    These grades of paper used #1000> #1500 > #2000> #2500>. The paper was soaked in water (Large bucket). Add a little washing up liquid with clean water into a large spray bottle, the washing up liquid will help to prevent the paper clogging and will help the paper to glide, use a block on flat panels (not many on this cobra) and just your hand for the curves, wash down between stages and inspect. Tip cut your wd paper into four pieces (parm size).

    COBRA Update

    Well after the epic paint correction on the Cobra we never had the chance to take any photo's outside in natural daylight.

    This was our first time seeing the car outside in the open.
