    2014 250 isf

    This car was the second from the couple that also dropped off the Rav4. This was to be a wheels-off, one step CQF job. I love those!!


    Here it is as it arrived:























    There were some chips to be filled in as well and the customer had brought the touch up paint I had requested.

    First up was the wheels.

    The barrels were cleaned with Tarminator.
    The faces were cleaned with Zep Citrus.
    The tires were cleaned with Zep 505.
    The wells were cleaned with LATA.


    The car was given a hand wash with DG 901 and then a decontamination wash with IronX paste.
    It was then brought inside and was blown off with the Master Blaster including the wheels.


    Each corner was jacked up and the wheel removed. The barrel was re-cleaned and then was chemically cleaned with DG Squeaky Clean. A double coat of CQF was applied and flash cured.

    Here are a couple of shots (not great; sorry) of the barrels:






    And here of the face:








    I had looked up in the manual for the tech spec for the wheel nuts and torqued them back to spec with my Snap On torque wrench.


    The paint got a one step polish of yellow B/S + M205 + Flex 3401 followed by B/S green + DG SC. The paint, glass head and tail lights were all double coated with CQF. The windshield was coated with CQ Fly-By-30. The rear trim was coated with DLux. Here it is all done:























    I really loved these reflection shots!

















    Thanks for looking!

    Sadly no. Just the car in general. It's got some nice lines. A white pearl in color.

    Just to be a stickler, it is an IS250 F-Sport... an IS-F is an all together different vehicle

    But I am SO jealous that the ultra sonic blue is available in Canada... they offered it for a couple of years on the 2nd gen IS in the states, but took it away for the 3rd gen. It is definitely my favorite color. Looks great!

    Thanks Zach, as well as for the correction. I did this writeup late at night...no excuses, LOL. Not many times that we in Canada get something that the US guys don't. How cool is that?!?
