Nissan Skyline GT-T R34 Metallic Black

by Kenneth Tang

The car is a Nissan Skyline GT-R 34 in metallic black.
The original plan was just to give it a one-step polish and then straight to wax. However when the owner brought it in, he realized of the horrendous scratches after I switched on the halogens. The scratches weren’t there before and he usually washes it himself carefully, wiping it gently.

Unfortunately, the day before, his maid washed his car, and this happened.

We were both shocked. Usually I would take two days to do a full correction detail and after testing, a one-step polish wasn’t enough to get rid of the scratches. So I told the owner that I would try to do a two-step polish which consisted of

1) Meguiar’s # 83 Dual-Action Cleaner/Polish @ 1500 rpms with W-8006 polishing pad

followed by

2) Menzerna 106FF @ 900 rpms with W-8006 polishing pad.

The paint isn’t 100% as there are still many random deep scratches which needed compounding.
Not many process pics this time as I was rushing against time.

This was then followed by Meguiar’s #21 Synthetic Sealant and FK1 Pink Wax

And here are the after pictures. They are taken the day after the detail and has been driven, please excuse the light dust =)
