  • Mitsubishi RVR - Hypergear Edition

    Been working on this car for a while and recently had time to post it. Overall about 40+ hours on and off between cars.

    Thanks Steve for giving me chance to work on this car.

    Car condition - Dusty and cluttered interior.
    Exterior has mixture of oxidation, uneven orange peels and soft + hard clear coat due to respray. Some areas with clear coat flaking.

    Started working rear wheel and moved into interior

    8hr later

    Next exterior wash.

    Started testing area to determine approach

    It was after this stage where I started see issues with certain areas of the car and I have to retest and restart and retest how aggressive I need to be. In short I had to go rotary in most areas.

    Many moons later

    Rewash due to dust collected

    This area took whooping 45mins. I was starting to worry vs the gear I have to to detail with.

    Although got the results. Just too long with DA. Had to invest in Rotary.

    Making serious progress but also serious increase in risk.

    . Went into serious overkill now with rotary under inexperienced hands. But I got the hang of it. Just need more focus and less working time and monitor panel heat.

    Fusso Coat

    Final product.

    Friend was happy with results and surprised that we were about to get the shine back.

    Wish I had more time but a prep for sale job. I believe I have met expectations.

    Thanks for reading.

      awesome turnaround
      The thing that you do, after your day job, in your free time, early in the morning or late at night. The thing you read about, write about, think about, fantasize about. that thing you do alone and theres no one to impress, nothing to prove, no money to be made, simply a passion to pursue. Thats it, thats your thing, thats your heart , your guide, Thats the thing you must, must do.

            This sleeper is tuned and will give V8s a run for their money. Also a great weekend car road trip as you can fold the rear seats to beds. Perfect bachelor car too . Soo many uses. Given my friend was and still am a party animal. I refrained from using infrared torch. Just wore [emoji40] and cleaned. LMAO.

                    Thanks Caffeine. Doing these DIY work really makes me appreciate the pros doing this for a living. I am gearing up for another car very soon.
