We received a white sporty Toyota Vitz from a friend. It needed headlight restoration and some facelift, but no polishing. The car was cleaned with the usual 2BM method.
We start with the headlights:
So here is the situation:
The right side:
Both headlights are yellowed and hazed. So, eyesight restoration underway.
Remember the right side:
Remember the left side
To the paintwork now:
The car was cleaned, perfectly clean for claying. But surprise, surprise! It did appear clean by any means. Embedded dirt! Claying had very little effect. Almost none!
Here we are:
The vertical sides
Just like acid rain marks but white this time
Some deep scratches too (but this is not to be corrected)
Orange peel and uneven paint
Wrong prep before respray
Extreme close-up to see the condition of the paint
close up with a thin part done
Notice the difference in the color done and shine
The little detailer in action
The little boss again, explaining to me how it should be done.
(the wheel in the pic is for a Toyota NZE, we brought to mint condition)
Half of the hood done (not easy to notice on the pic, the left side is done)
The front bumper
A little section corrected
The side mirrors
50/50, left side corrected on the door
Car almost done
Now moving to the door jambs
It’s not Ali Baba’s, rather a treasure of dirt :(
The not so visible areas of the front bumper
No stains... simply cleaned
The ride's got a smile on her face. J
& the owner too!
