Restoring the shine on a Toyota Corolla

Hello friends! 

We got the visit of a Toyota Corolla, year 01, quite bad in shape, dirty and paint work simply DULL. 


Had to restore the shine, Not too many pics, and only taken from the phone cam.

The car has been cleaned, 2BM method. Letting the pics do the talking

The emblems 







Algae removal... initiating the young one



 



The boss @ work


working meticulously
 

moving onto the bike ... on his own




 Cleaned






 To the paintwork now...

cold & flat... no depth... no warmth... no shine


Swirls and scratches not easy to capture on grey




Claying




close-up




Moving onto paint correction

Dividing the hood into workable sections



 a 50/50  .... not easy to capture on grey



Needs to be refined



Clearer still


some depth now


the boot lid polished 


 The homemade sun-gun




Detailing in the rain


Downpour of beads



Some reflection shots


my baby




My favourite shot 



Depth and shine restored to the 11 year Corolla


Thanks for viewing... your thoughts and comments 
are most welcome...

cheers

  3. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really something
    which I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and very broad
    for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I'll try to get the hang of it!

  7. I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is needed to get set up? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a
    pretty penny? I'm not very internet savvy so I'm not
    100% certain. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated. Kudos
