    1979 Rx-7 taken up a notch...channeling my inner Sizzle & TTQ1979 Rx-7 taken up a notch...channeling my inner Sizzle & TTQ[emoji120]

    So one of my best friends has had this car for over 8 years now. The initial detail was pretty intense back then but since then it's basically been every other year, THIS WAS THE YEAR!

    1979 Mazda Rx-7

    -200 hp built 13b rotary w/Racing Beat intake and FULL exhaust

    -5 speed manual, ofcoarse

    -Disc brake GSL-SE rear end

    -0-60 7.0 seconds

    -Top Speed...140 mph (when brass pair equipped1979 Rx-7 taken up a notch...channeling my inner Sizzle & TTQ[emoji120])

    -Lava Red Pearl (can't quite remember the name, MS3/MS6 OEM color)

    Products
    -------------

    -WGU made up as clay lube
    -Griot's Garage fine clay towel
    -3D Speed
    -Griot's Garage GG6 & GG3
    -Griot's Garage orange pad
    -Griot's Garage mf pads (GG3)
    -Griot's Garage new foam cannon
    -CG's Honeydew soap
    -Turtle Wax Ceramic + graphene paste
    -Adam's graphene tire dressing


    The car looked good inperson, people love Hectour's 7! Once I was done claying the 7 I knew it could be better but I had NO IDEA it would go up more than "the next level"1979 Rx-7 taken up a notch...channeling my inner Sizzle & TTQ[emoji120]

    After a 2 section pass with 3D Speed, orange pad and the GG6 w/5" backing plate set to speed 4.5 I was shocked1979 Rx-7 taken up a notch...channeling my inner Sizzle & TTQ[emoji120] I tried to take a pic of the distinctive line but it just wouldn't show up good but we both couldn't believe a 1 step could do THIS1979 Rx-7 taken up a notch...channeling my inner Sizzle & TTQ[emoji120]1979 Rx-7 taken up a notch...channeling my inner Sizzle & TTQ[emoji120]I used the GG3 on some little areas where Hectour had a mishap, lightened up the spot to his satisfaction. Also used the GG3 on the bumpers, roof (huge glass sunroof), area under the front/rear bumpers...very handy and that 2" backing plate conversion was awesome!

    I even polished the glass and that too was brought up by 3D Spped and my machine/pad combo, this really impressed us1979 Rx-7 taken up a notch...channeling my inner Sizzle & TTQ[emoji120]

    Then the 7 was pulled out of the garage and then tried out the Griot's Garage Brillant Shine foam cannon...mic drop, period1979 Rx-7 taken up a notch...channeling my inner Sizzle & TTQ[emoji120] CG's Honeydew produced great foam, what a foam cannon! I cleaned the tires and wheels, Hectour rinsed it off and it was brought back into the garage to be dried off for the LSP.

    Hectour chose the new TW ceramic + graphene paste wax, 303 spray graphene was the other option. I applied it lightly and let sit while I went to another panel and then came back to remove it...no problem. At this point the Gloss aka "Wettness" was incredible, so couldn't wait to get it outside but first I finished with Adam's graphene tire dressing...now were ready for beauty shot1979 Rx-7 taken up a notch...channeling my inner Sizzle & TTQ[emoji120]

    Maybe Hectour will post some of HIS pics tomorrow, thanks for viewing everyone1979 Rx-7 taken up a notch...channeling my inner Sizzle & TTQ[emoji120]

    Killer job, really brought out ALL the gloss! The red with the white wheels is a very nice touch.

    You brought up some amazing gloss and depth to that bright red, what a beauty.

    People love black when properly detailed, and I do too. But I’m not sure if anyone could convince me that red isn’t the best paint color when it’s dialed in.

    Very cool, unique car. I hope he keeps it forever.

    I'm looking at these pics now at work on an actual monitor and I'm sorry about how they look! I use my cellphone always which is a Galaxy S8 (I'm not a latest and greatest guy) and I'm hoping my buddy Hectour does come in here and post his pics, they're surely much better than mine are!
