Chris’s 1971 Pontiac LeMans Concours Show Car
Process: Stage III
This classic car restoration took 12 hours to go from faded and swirled paint to highly-reflective, liquid-black. The process began with throughly washing the Pontiac’s body then clay barring it to remove any impurities in the soft paint. The muscle car was washed again, then dried and all of the chrome and plastic trim taped up to prevent any compound from getting into random crevasses. For black to come to life from so much marring, it required multiple machine polish steps. After one last wash to remove the left-over compound, the beast was waxed and chrome was hand polished to perfection.
