  • Lexus ISF Jet Black ( 2008)

    Hello guys,


    Here's another car I did, this car was in need of some serious paint correction it was dull as anything no gloss whatsoever !
    The owner got this car with 34000km a 2008 model Lexus ISF ( the Sports Version of there range ) targeting BMW M3

    Whoever detailed the paint on this car had a field day with the rotary swirl
    marks all over and car wash brushes were evident with the deep scratches it had on the paint which the previous owner used to wash this car or should I say grind

    It looked more like grey than Jet Black it was booked in for three day paint correction but ended up being four days because of the extra work involved.
    I have detailed and corrected plenty of Jet Black cars but this one was one of the worst I have done in a long time .

    Car on arrival ( please enjoy the photos)




    Excessive amount of build up ( car was driven on track days really hard )

    One beast of an engine ( didn't need much work at all in fact it was the best part of the car )

    Snow foaming to loosen all the dirt that had accumulated through our winter season

    And now the best part






    Here's a 50/50 test panel I polished with Wizards Mystic Cut and later refined with this new polish i have been testing called HD Advanced Polish
    all done with my Flex Rotary .



    Paint readings taken




    Boot 50/50



    50/50 roof
















    Final results









    Dull miserable winter weather in the back ground reflections from the Lexus ISF


    Sorry guys no chance to tidy up I wanted to drive the car outside to get some shots before the heavens opened again








    With the assistance of my LED Lights as it was getting darker outside ( don't you love winter )





    Weapons of choice



    Thank you guys for reading

    Best Regards

    Mario

    Nice one Mario! Massive improvement mate, hazy grey to glossy black! The finished results look stunning!
    That paint looked very bad to start with, seems like tons of stone chips for 34k kms!

    So HD polish nice on soft paint? How much cut do you think it has?

            Thanks Matty, I knew you were waiting for this one , that's why I make sure I posted it !Plenty of stone chips this car was tracked a lot lol !
            HD Advanced Polish is almost like Menzerna PO 85RD or SF5000 great polish works better than the mentioned polish IMHO !
