Well the task for Monday and today was to detail a 2005 GT in an extremely rare colour. Peter, the owner, told me that he knows of only one other in this colour and I have to stay it is absolutely fantastic!
Peter will probably be along later with some even better photos but here are a few to keep you entertained for now.
I have been deliberating what colour to repsray my GTV when it comes off the road in a month or so, but now my mind has been made up, the answer is............ 117/B Rosso Brunello.
Anyway, on with the detail.
Peter has only recently purchased the car and wanted the paintwork to look absolutely perfect.
As you can see there were a fair number of swirls, and being Alfa paint it was the usual pairing of soft and pretty thin.
After some paintwork correction I was left with the following. You can see how the depth of flake in the paint was being hidden by the swirls.
The sun was shining both days and providing absolutely perfect working conditions.
More swirls on the boot
Then corrected (Excuse the product smear residue in this one, which hadn't yet been wiped off)
Look at this flake
So the finished article
Apologies for the shortness of the write up, but I am getting married on Saturday and so I'm a bit short on time at the moment.
If you have any questions at all then just let me know.
Thanks for looking
