Wes_R x FRS (41 pics)

Hey My Isers,

Long time no see since my last write up here,

I had been speaking to the owner of this FRS off and on now for a couple years regarding detailing his previous vehicles and he had always admired my work online. A couple time we were supposed to meet up but things just didn't pan out. Finally with the sun, moon, and stars, all in the right place, in came his FRS for a 2 stage polish and protection by Opti Gloss Coat.

Arrival pics

Always start with the wheels first

Wash with the 2 Bucket Method and a chenille microfiber mitt

Next up is clay the paint with the Nanoskin Mitt

Then finally dry the car with a plush microfiber towel(I don't even dry myself with towels this luxurious)

Paint being measured

Rubber trim being masked off to prevent burning

And on to the Befores and After. Note that this is the first stage with a compound so you might notice a little hazing in the Afters, but that will be cleaned up in the 2nd stage







50/50 shot

After the 2nd stage the flake was glistening!

Unmasking the trim

Cleaning up the compound dust left behind in the jambs

Cleaning out polish residue from the clear bra edge

Dressing the tires

Cleaning the windows

And applying Opti Gloss Coat

Completed pictures and very happy with the outcome!

This is my favorite pic. The gloss is so unreal!

This is my 2nd favorite pic!

And finally one of those moody anime style pics lol

Hope you enjoyed the write up!
