    1972 Corvette Stingray - Extreme Makeover - Process and Products Used




    1972 Corvette Stingray - Extreme Makeover - Process and Products Used


    First, here's the products we used to restore a show car shine to this classic 1972 Corvette


    First we wiped the car down to get it clean using DP Waterless Auto Wash




    Then we clayed the paint, chrome and glass using Pinnacle Ultra Poly-Clay and Pinnacle Clay Lubricant



    Then we tested Prima Cut and Prima Swirl with 6.5" Purple Foamed Wool Pads on Flex 3401 Forced Rotation Dual Action Polishers and also using small prototype buffing pads on a Flex PE14 using an extension adapter.



    After removing all the majority of the deeper defects we machine polished the paint using 6.5" Crimson Hydro-Tech Finishing Pads and Prima Finish



    Next we machine applied Prima Banana Gloss using Flex 3401 DA Polishers with Griot's Garage Waxing Pads



    We topped the Prima Banana with Dodo Juice Banana Armor using LC Gold 5.5" Jeweling pads on both a Meguiar's G110v2 and a Porter Cable 7424XP



    We used Microfiber Gloves to hold the wax after removing it out of the jar...




    We used CarPro Erasure to inspect our results during our Test Spot



    We used Diamondite Glass and Surface Cleaner to clean the glass...



    We used the Brinkmann Swirl Finder to inspect our results...



    Nicole inspecting our work...

    Re: 1972 Corvette Stingray - Extreme Makeover - Process and Products Used

    The Prima Swirl we used last night worked really well. I thought the foamed wool pad with the prima swirl were a perfect combination. The product applied great, and left great results quickly.

    The Prima Finish really brought out the "Wet" look and the Crimson foam pad helped to apply the product well

    I thought the Prima Banna Gloss was a little too thin, but still applied nicely to the corvette.

    I was so impressed by the Flex 3401 that I just got home from picking one up from autogeek! That machine is the best. I didn't know a DA could work that well at paint correction. The whole process was very simple and effective for the results we were all looking for.

    I can't wait for the next project car!!! It was an awesome time!
