Vehicle: 1991 Nissan 300ZX
Package: Enhancement Detailing Package
Condition: Before modern day base coat, clear coat paints, vehicles had what is called single stage paint. This meant that there was no protective clear coat over the colour coat and therefore the colour itself was exposed to the elements causing easy oxidation. This 300ZX had the original 23 year old paint, however it was extremely oxidised giving it a pale, chalky look with next to no gloss. Definitely not something that you would want from your pride and joy.
Process: After decontaminating the paint through degreasing, APC washing and claying, the paintwork was machine polished to remove all traces of the oxidised paint. Single stage paint has to be treated slightly differently then modern day paint, so extra care was taken not to damage the brittle thin paint. Finally the paint was sealed and protected with our favourite mixture of Duragloss and Dodo Juice. The overall result was an amazing transformation bringing the gloss levels back to those which most likely had not been seen for the last 20 years.
