    1980 Studebaker Avanti II Restoration

    1980 Studebaker Avanti II Restoration



    Hello autogeek, here is a 1980 Studebaker I had the pleasure of restoring for a friend.

    Here are a few before photos and afters as well during shots 50/50s.

    Process was decon, iron, clay, griots fast cut, sonax perfect finish, and then topped with meguiars new hybrid ceramic wax. Also the bottom panels got hand sanded with 3000 grit along with inside fender lips.

    I thought I would start trying to post on here again as I used to enjoy posting, its been many years since then.
