    Custom Paint Job - 1980 Corvette - RUPES & Gyeon - Extreme Show Car Makeover at Autogeek

    Custom Paint Job - 1980 Corvette - RUPES & Gyeon - Extreme Show Car Makeover at Autogeek



    This car belongs to my buddy Jim, I needed a cool car for some great pictures for two of my classes at Mobile Tech Expo in Orlando in a few weeks. Jim's car has a great custom paint job but there were still some sanding marks and holograms left in the paint so it worked perfect for my RUPES class and my Gyeon class.


    Here's before....



    Under florescent lights, the paint looks pretty good!






    Look ma... no swirls - no scratches....






    Now lets see what's really going on....


























    These my friend are holograms....






    If you detail cars at a professional level or you work in a body shop - you want this light.

    It came out real nice. The team did a great job!

    The Rupes system did a great job at removing the swirls and sanding marks.

    All of the Rupes tools (except for pneumatic) were used to tackle this job...the 21, 15, Duetto, Mini, and the iBrid.

    I was impressed by the Gyeon products used. The coating is very easy to apply and wipe off. Even the Gyeon towels used were nice.

    No doubt that Jim, the owner of this flashy Corvette, was a proud car guy when he left his baby at the Autogeek's Show Car Garage for some detailing. I hope Mike took a picture of his friend's face when he returned to pick up his car the next day. What an incredible transformation! The Rupes system came through brilliantly. I enjoyed my first opportunity to work with the iBrid polisher. It really saved time and effort in the tight places like the round tail-lights, the front fender vents, door locks and handles, etc. The white pad is very effective for its size. The GYEON coating and related products made the final step easy and most satisfying. The custom shiny paint-job became a glassy sculpture last evening. Thank you for trusting us with your beautiful ride, Jim. Enjoy it in good health. Thanks to Mike and the team for another great experience. Al
