    Buick meets the Supa Beast for a revival!

    After a couple months of purchasing the new daily driver i have been itching to paint correct this car.

    Got it from an old couple never supposedly scene winter. But with less than 80,000 miles on it and fact it was completely rust free, we took it home.

    Although rust free, it certaintly had a hefty amount of swirls. I mean holy smokes, the previous owner needed a lesson in simple car washing techniques!

    Anyway, the Supa Beast and my arms...got a workout so to speak lol. Used LC hybrid force orange pads with menzerna 400. Cleaned up well but was left with a little hazing.

    So, had to make a second go round with LC hybrid force white pads and menzerna 3500.

    Afterwards did a final Wipe down with megs m122 and finished off with 2 rounds of ceramic coating.

    Happy with results. Only garage pics as its raining here. The 50/50 shot is after menz 400

    That was all machine work buddy. I used the flex 10-8 "supa beast". The reference of my arms getting a workout was from all that buffing lol. I dont do it every weekend so that coupled with the fact that its a car...being low to the ground really wore me out. Im used to pickup trucks.

    Bet they wish they regret getting rid of it!

    Odd but possibly true - like getting rid of an old girlfriend and seeing her 5 months later looking like a model LOL
