Mobile-Image : Round 2 with J's R32
Sexy's back...As some of you may have already seen we had J's R32 back in for more thorough TLC after the quickie we did at the Show n' Shine. This time J wanted the whole hog including the wheels, arches, motor, interior basically everything on the car was to be pampered Clap


Right onto some photies, at least we managed to snap a few quick befores of this sexy lady before we started work on her Bluebiggrin

Nothing too crazy, just the usual road grime, etc accumulated from driving in the rain.

Wheels were the usual, brake dust and dirt all over but the fronts looked ok anyways

Tailpipes were looking really tired and would need some work

Onto the cleaning and considering the amount of work to be done on this beauty we got right to it starting with the wheels and arches/brakes.

Wheels off to reveal the barrels and arches along with the enormous rotors and calipers

Wheels got the usual Sonax Xtreme Rim Cleaner followed by Sonax Tar Remover followed by a quick clay and then sealed up with Smartwax Rimwax leaving is with these results...

Calipers were treated to Sonax Xtreme Rim Cleaner followed with Meg's APC and then sealed with Smartwax Rimwax as well. Came out pretty well IMO

Arches were next and given a good scrubbing with Meg's APC and various brushes (twice) rinsed with the pressure washer and then sealed up with 303 Aerospace Protectant.

And wheels back on with the calipers peeking through

With the wheels out of the way day 1 was wound up by restoring the beautiful Milltek tailpieces to their former glory. The tools of the trade for this one was our secret scourer pads for the insides followed by Sonax Metal Polish on the outers to bring back the bling.

Before and after

Day 2 on the R started with getting the car washed, clayed and taped up for the correction work along with sorting out the interior. Unfortunately not many pics from this stage (no particular reason other than forgetting the camera inside and being lazy Hammerhead ). The surface was pretty free from contaminants and the interior was neat aside form a little dust and the usual.

2 quick after pics (not the greatest I know) from the interior.

Day 3 began with another quick rinse to remove any dust that may have settled on the paint followed by the paint correction. A combination of SIP, 106FA and various LC CCS pads were used followed by yet another wash and then sealed up with a layer of Poor Boys EX Sealant topped with 2 layers of Sonax Xtreme Wax. Overall we were blown away by the dripping wet finish but I'll let the following mix of random after pics do the talking Bluebiggrin

A closeup of the paint after correction, overall we achieved around 95% correction with only a few very mild RIDS remaining here and there.

At the end of the day we were sad to see this sexy beast go, I for onw quite enjoyed looking out of the window seeing her in all her glory parked under the lights Bawling

Thanks again for looking Wink

Ya eish dude, Im really pissed with our transport guys for cocking it up before we closed on the 12th, the promised me it would go out but failed to deliver Hammerhead

Grant has at least managed to organise free transport down to you, just not sure when exactly Uhoh2

Sorry again dude, I can always post it if you like but figured if I can use something free it would benefit you more...Descision is yours Iono
