Subaru Liberty (Stage 2 Paint Rejuvenation)

IMG 02611

Today was a 2004 two litre twin-scroll Liberty GT wagon which was booked in for a Rejuvenation paint correction as well as a Headlight Restoration. The GT had minor to moderate swirl marks all over the body and needed the two stage machine polish to get back a wet look in the shade and the metallic colour flaking in the sun.

ˆStage 1 decontamination – This bleeds the Iron content from the paint. Brake dust will bond to unprotected paint over time and slowly start degrading the finish.

ˆStage 2 decontamination – The clay bar will deep clean the paint and remove contaminants that a normal wash will not. This will pick up tar spots, bug residue, industrial fallout, sap etc.
