    Purple Zilla Gets Perfected and Coated

    So new resident to our area has had a pet project taking up his time for the past year or so. Welcome to the US His 55k US Mile Nissan Skyline R33 GT-R. It's an amazing car and one of the more well sorted copies I've seen from the R32/R33 era. The interior is like new.

    It's had at least 3 episodes of paint including some fresh area over the front 1/3rd of the car. He added the body kit, wheels, tires, re-did the brakes and is in the process of re-doing the calipers and engine components to be color matched to whatever he's choosing for that. Down the road a few of the old paint flaws (mottling) will likely be addressed but for now they live in a story that he doesn't really know the full history of and certainly don't detract from the overall car. Definitely more to do but one awesome car that was a pleasure to work on.

    We weren't working for a full correction on some of the older paint but darn near got it. Plenty of quality left in the clear to keep protecting from this point forward for sure. The entire car is wrapped in 3 layers of CarPro Ceramic and should shed water and dirt like fresh non-stick pan.

    Polished with a Flex XCE, Orange L.C. Flat Pads using CarPro Essence. Coatings include 2 layers of CarPro UK 3.0 topped with a final layer of CarPro SiC. CarPro Dlux used to restore and protect the windshield cowling.

    Now onto a handful of pics which honestly don't do it justice:

    Purple-Zilla is right! Lol

    Awesome job as usual, bud.
    It is no coincidence that man's best friend cannot talk.
