    Here's Jeff using the SCANGRIP Sunmatch light to look for high spots of coating residue and if discovered, remove them.












    These are a few shots I took which duplicate the BEFORE shots I took showing where there were issues with the paint.

    We used SONAX Gloss Tire Gel to shine up the tires for the finishing touch!

    Mike, which connector did you use for the iBrid Nanos(Rotary,3mm,12mm)? Did you have to swap from using the rotary to the 3mm or 12mm connectors for any sections? Thanks!

    Thanks!

    All work performed using the iBrid Nano polishers was done using the 12mm Orbit Connectors.


    I have an article on this topic here,

    Looks great! Love the color and black accent on the hood. In this case it's a guarantee that this paint looks better than new.

    The custom color didn't hit me right away but when I saw the custom crafted 67' hood scoop and black stinger I thought it was Marlboro red from a 67', am I right Mike?
