It has been a serious amount of time since I last had chance to update with a full report. A busy year at Refined Details, completed the move to a 2,000 sq ft studio – enough room for 8-9 vehicles at one time. Many exciting cars in the process and I promise to get to doing write ups on a more regular basis!
This particular job was back in October last year and was on one of my favourite 80s classics – the Mk1 Toyota MR2. A rare thing indeed with this one having a super low 40,000 miles!
The job in hand was a major 2-stage enhancement detail to improve the lustre of the finish. A full correction was not possible due to the serious thin paint and severe scratches to contend with – the idea was to enhance the finish within the healthy parameters of the paintwork.
Some contamination removed by the clay barring process…
Into the machine polishing!

A little bit of toothpickery on the rear lens’:
2 layers of a nanotechnology sealant, followed by a colourcharged wax was what was on the menu for protection.
Then the MR2 was rolled into the natural light.
An absolute pleasure bringing this one back to life – thank you very much for looking and reading…
