    1998 Green Teal Z28 detailed...

    10-second 1998 Z28...

    I did a four-step process on the paint for this one: No interior...

    -Claybar
    -Polished with Menzerna
    -Blackfire Gloss Enhancer Polish
    -Blackfire Wet Diamond Sealant

    -Wheels: Metal Polish (Mild cleaner)
    -Tires: Dynamic Detailing Concourse Tire Gel

    Paint was in pretty decent shape. It had some sanding mark on the drivers' side of the hood, which I corrected. Pics to follow...
    The car cleaned real nice, brought the paint back to its originally glistening brightness and then some...

    Before:

    Hood rash before...:

    Rest of the before shots:






    A nasty scratch on rear right side fender (keyed :banghead: ) I tried to improve, but it was too deep...
    Before:

    After: a little better, you have to look at it from a right angle to be able to see it :thumbsup: :

    Can hardly see it:

    That kid on the scooter is way too close for comfort and it's not even my car haha. How'd you take out the scratches?

    That's my good friend 5-year old DJ, man. One of the best kids to ever ride a scooter in his neighborhood, if not the best!

    How would I take scratches out?
    It just depends how bad they are and how bad someone wants them gone
    The safest approach is obviously buffing. That's what I did in this case. I use M105 (Meguiars Ultra Compound) a yeloow pad, then followed with Menzerna and an orange pad. That's about as safe as you can go using a machine like my Flex DA, or even with a high-speed buffer...

    Another option will still be buffing, but it will involve wool pads and a more aggressive compound with a high-speed buffer. If you have experience you'd probably know what I'm talking about, if not, then should be very careful at using this method
    And lastly, wetsanding combined with the wool pad buffing option.
    Again, unless somebody is paying to have that removed, I wouldn't try to go out of my way to completely remove it .
    A lot of things can go bad.
    I do my best to buff them out as much as I can, while being cautious and safe...

    Thanks!
    Correct-ed is a term used in detailing to indicate you have fixed an pre-existent flaw on the paint, and it's no longer there...

    Thank you, bud!
    It's Summer time in the Rockies. Everybody wants their car detailed.
    Not as busy as it may look, but is picking up a little...

    Yeah, I should've. Car has a Procharger and some goodies. Not too flashy, just runs strong
    BTW, I'm working on a C6 right now. I may have posted pics of it from last year when I detailed it last, but this time, it has a customed 1st production run of a Supercharger designed and patented by the owner of the car, who also owns a speed shop
    Anyway, this car will be at a photoshoot for a magazine on Wednesday. I hope to have it done by then; interior, exterior, engine bay, etc...
    It has some wicked custom paint job (air brush)
    Car ran 10.7 up here
    It will be dynoed on Tuesday and ready for Wednesday. I will post pics of the complete job soon after that
    In the meantime, a few teaser of the work in progress...

    Yeah, those pics were from last year. I've had Pinnacle Souveran on it at that time IIRC. Notice the side-mounted Magna Supercharger on it, which was also a new designed by the owner of the car, now the upgraded version will have a bigger SC and will be mounted where the intake is. The intake will be integrated as part of the supercharger assembly kit...

    Awsome. I know what you mean. Things like this need to be seen in person to fully appreciate what is going on.

    Let me ask you- what would a 10.7 run in Colorado be here in Florida?

    Normally, at this altitude cars will always run slower than at sea-level
    To give you a good example, I met a guy who moved here from Houston. His stock T/A ran 13.9's down in Texas, he almost cried whe he car ran 15.1 up here l:

    The 10.70 in Florida may be a high 9's. I don't think it will be a full second difference, since when you're putting that much power, once you're into the 10's will require a lot more power to shave off 10ths than if you were running 13's. Makes sense?
    So, I think that car could bust some 9.8's 10 flat at sea-level...

    And since you asked
    Here is a video of this same teal green Z28 busting out a 10.49 last Saturday (July 4th) Nice small front tire-lift...
    Sorry, my little digital camera has no zoom in video mode, but I did take a snapshot of the time board...

    I was never a big fan of green on these cars but I must say- I have changed my mind.
