    SL Restoration - Maserati Gran Turismo S - Introducing AutoFinesse Illusion

    Welcome to another installment,

    We were contacted about this Maserati Gran Turismo S with the owner knowing exactly the finish that he was after . . .[/FONT][/SIZE]

    On arrival the car was wearing the usual dirt & grime but nothing too major











    As always we began by giving a thorough pre-soak to all the lower sections of the car, including the wheels with AF Citrus Power. These areas were then rinsed at 60c



    Wheels cleaned with AF Imperial and the new AF Hog Hair wheel brush



    Dooka mitt for behing the spokes



    Large Wheel Woolie for the innners




    Tyres given a deep clean with AF Citrus Power



    Arches deep cleaned with Meguiar's Super Degreaser diluted 1:4 and a long handled Vikan brush



    After a quick rinse, wheels then treated with AF Iron Out



    Rinsed again and de-tarred with AF Oblitarate and an old MF cloth




    Shuts etc tackled with AF Citrus Power & a detailing brush



    Foamed with AF Avalanche at 60c with the aim to soften all the bonded dirt (again with the addition of AF Lather to increase foam consistency & dwell time)



    The usual areas tackled with a detailing brush



    Rinsed at 60c then safely washed via the 2BM with AF Lather and a Meguiar's Lambswool Wash Mitt



    After rinsing via the pressure washer at 30c it was time for the first stage of bodywork decontamination with AF Oblitarate and Iron Out (this is rinsed in between)





    Time for a final soak with Avalanche, this time at 30c




    Thoroughly rinsed with the pressure washer, followed by an open hose. It was into the unit for decontamination with AF Glide and AF Fine Clay



    Decontamination fully complete it was back outside for a final soak and rinse again with AF Avalanche at 30c



    Back into the unit and dried with i4D Uber Drying Towels & the Metro Blaster





    After the standard Spies Hecker 7010 wipedown, paintwork was inspected and readings were taken giving an average reading of 148 microns


    In addition to the treatment was to be repaired for stone chips & repainted (again i'll save pictures of our paintwork services for another thread)

    Once the bumper had been repaired & painted it was refitted to the car so that the treatment could really begin

    Bonnet, door handles, locks, badges etc were all removed to allow me full access. Basically anything that wasn't bonded on. Remaining areas taped & sheeted up (you'll notice the badge on the bumper still present, this is due to being fixed via the underside of the bumper shell)




    First up the paintwork was flatted down with 1500 3M wet and dry paper and a Meguiars E7200 block (OCD as it sounds 12 pieces of each were numbered and given a soak for a good few hours prior to the work commencing)





    Peel starting to disappear



    This was followed by 2000 grit paper by hand (with my hand being kept as flat as possible, working in more than just one direction to avoid flatting marks)




    Panel spritzed with water & a dash of Johnsons baby shampoo



    Then 3000 Trizact on the MIRKA ROS650CV (this has a 5mm orbit)



    Followed by 6000 Trizact on the Rupes SKORPIO RH 153A (this has a 3mm orbit for ultra refining). The 3000 stage basically refines the paper stages with the 6000 actually starting the polishing stage



    3M DC272926965 75mm Sander used in the tighter areas




    Everything now ready for polishing it was time for a rocket fuel break



    Once sanded it was time to start bringing the paintwork to life. Choice for the cutting stage was the Rupes LHR15ES Bigfoot coupled with a Megiuars MF Cutting Pad and Rupes Zephir Compound Gel. (Each panel was given 4 hits of cutting as the last thing you want with wetsanding is drop back) As always results were constantly checked throughout the polishing process after multiple IPA wipedowns. Readings were also taken throughout indicating an average removal of 8 microns.





    Pad regularly cleaned with the Megiuars Pad Conditioning Brush and the Snap-On blow gun






    Bonnet sanded



    After first stage of polishing




    Rupes LHR75 with the same pad/polish combo in the tighter areas



    A few random work in progress shots







    Even under natural light the flake was really coming through



    And starting to look nice & sharp



    Paintwork was then left to rest for 12 hours before being given another thorough inspection for any defects or dropback


    Pigtail found (this is caused by dirt in the sanding disk or interface pad)



    Removed with both 3000 & 6000 Trizact



    And polished



    Cutting stage complete paintwork was then given its first refining stage using Rupes Keramik Gloss and their yellow fine pad. (This was completed before reassembly)





    Things were starting to come together nicely, under the sun gun



    And the Festool Syslite




    With the vehicle now completely reassembled it was time for the final refining stage with Rupes Diamond Gloss on their white ultra fine pad





    With the polishing work completed it was on to the engine bay with AF Citrus Power



    Dusted down with an AF detail brush



    Plastics dressed with AF Revive (this was buffed after 30 mins to leave a nice satin finish)




    Interior hoovered and given a wipedown with AF Spritz



    Vents, badges seen to



    Leather cleaned with AF Hide Cleaner and a soft brush



    Conditioned with AF Hide Conditioner




    Glass cleaned with AF Crystal & Microfibre Madness Cloudbuster



    Tyres degreased with AF Oblitarate then dressed with AF Satin



    Wheels cleansed with AF Tripple



    Than sealed with AF Mint Rims



    Exhaust not being chrome was treated to an AF Olitarate wipedown followed by AF Tripple (the last thing you want to be doing is attacking this type of pipe with wirewool)



    Badges all retaped



    And trimmed (this alone took 3 hours)




    New stone foils fitted



    All the little bits taken care of it was back to the paintwork



    Cleansed with AF Rejuvinate




    So what's in the box then?



    The new AF Illusion Show Car Wax (this was the perfect choice as by the owners admission it will be a garage queen)



    2 coats applied 3 hrs apart with an AF Waxmate applicator (entire car was waxed, before buffing off)



    Illusion curing




    And here is the finished article shown in the usual variety of pics



























    As always we can only point customers in the right direction regarding aftercare but the Maintenance Kit we put together for the owner is definately a step in the right direction



    Thanks for taking the time to read the article & hopefully you enjoyed it!!
