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.
ˆBefore – Wheels covered in brake dust and starting to bond with the clear coat
ˆBefore – Sling marks from an oily tyre shine
ˆDeep clean – The car is foamed to give a deep pre wash and loosen the stubborn dirt and grit that is sitting on the paint
ˆWheels, wheel arches and tyres are degreased and cleaned
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.
ˆReading paint thickness levels. This reading shows any signs of resprays, touch ups, body fillers and general thin paint. In this case 200-220um was measured over the entire body which is a good, healthy reading.
ˆCondition before – Minor to moderate swirl marks of the entire car with with some deeper marks in certain spots.
Condition after Rejuvenation paint correction and Headlight restoration:
