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!

When a car is, incorrectly, cleaned the dirt is clumped together and dragged along the paint surface. Brushed cash-wash machines are very good at damaging your vehicles clear coat, leaving many deep swirl lines and scratches in the paint surface. Continuous washing...
Tip & Tricks For Maintaining That Shine
When cleaning a vehicle try to remove the heavier dirt items with a higher pressure wash. Follow this with a good emulsifying cleaner that releases the dirt from the paint surface. Minimising scratching. Wash top down, cleaning the wheels last with a specific brush. Always dry the vehicle back and never wash hot paint, as this risks etching in water spots. For a deeper clean consider clay baring the paint surface.
Our recommendation is to use a high-quality sealant like DurSeal or OptiCoat Pro, to minimise the need for polishing and waxing. However, when polishing or waxing, ensure the paint surface is cool and the vehicle is away from direct sunlight. Apply in uniform motion following manufacturers directions.
Often forgotten until it's really bad. Care of your vehicle glass is important for the long term value and overall feeling of ownership. If your glass has got water spots on it, it's possible we may be able to remove them. However, some glass is quite soft and very easily etched by water spots.
