Our first and probably only, Auburn Boat-tail Speedster, this supercharged beauty was a challenge on many levels. Sure paint is as paint does. However, this vehicle had been hammered in all the wrong ways.
The black was more grey than black and lacked any sense of depth or trueness in the colour. This may have been a new paint job; however, it looked more like she was subject to ten years of abusive washing and drying. Ten hours and several buffing pads and cutting compound changes between sanding and buffing; were what it took to bring this Auburn Boat-tail Speedster back to the glory befitting her. To say it was a corrective buff – would be an understatement!
Water Spots and Coatings
While there are many protective paint coatings. It’s is important to note that they are not likely to stop water spots. However, they will make it easier to remove them.
Application of sacrificial protective layers like DuraSeal or OptiCoat Pro will help significantly. However, regular paint surface cleaning and waxing will also help for non-coated vehicles.
CLASSIC CAR PAINT DETAILING
How did we do it?
How we brought life back to the paint.
With a vehicle that was in the condition such as this one. Many hours of careful wet sanding by hand was required. Starting with 2000 grit then 3000 and finishing at 5000 grit.
Following the wet sanding, a full cut & polish paint detail was done with a paint clarity refine. After all that hard work we sealed the shine in with a paint sealant.
