Crystal’s 1998 TransAm WS.6
Process: Stage III
Over 15 hours were poured into reconditioning this phoenix to take flight again. The efforts were well worth it when the owner’s vehicle brought home a trophy the following weekend at a local car show! We deep cleaned the interior to remove layers of silcone-based dressings, shampooed the carpets and followed up with proper conditioning products for all the plastics, leather and weather strips. The engine bay was cleaned and dressed for a tight finish under the hood. The paint was thoroughly cleaned, clay barred, then multi-step polished until the Navy Blue Metallic glimmered flawlessly under the brilliant sun.
Above: Clay barring the paint is an essential step to removing embedded contamination prior to polishing and waxing. Also see a 50/50 shot of the unpolished VS polished surface.
