Ok All,

First, I have to aploligize for the pictures being in Black & White! I had to reserve battery power for the camera, so I turned the LCD screen off (and the flash) on the back of the camera and did not realize that I had left the camera in B&W mode! None the less, I hope you get an idea of the transformation on this badly oxidized car!

It was a 1985 Nissan 300ZX, that sat outside for 3 years! It's red and we all know what happens to red with heavy oxidization! It was almost white in some parts!

I did the interior as well, but I will spare you further agony of B&W pic's!

The process was:

Wash w/ Soft Wash Gel
# 83 On Rotary and Wool Pad
#80 On Rotary with Polishing Pad
Poorboy's EX with PC and finishing pad!
#40 On Exterior Trim & Wheel Wells
Meguiar's Endurance Tire Gel on Tires
Klasse AIO on Windows

Before Picture: (Sheesh I hope you get the idea)

I can see the car is obviously a lot shinier, but it would be great if you can also post some color shots. My Dad had an '85 300ZX, he really liked that car.

You can see a definite improvement in the 300zx. I see the owner has newer 300 wheels, simple mod which enhances the car.

Any pictures of your other recent work?

While color would show more, I think the B&W is a neat perspective on something that we all love.

The change is, beyond, obvious! Looks great!!! :xyxthumbs

Thanks All!

I wish I had some color shots to share of this car, but I don't!

I will also try and set aside some time, update my gallery and submit some recent details! These will be in VIBRANT color....lol

Thanks Again for the kind words!
