1974 Toyota Celica

This rare 1974 Toyota Celica was booked in for a full paint correction. The customer had the car imported from Japan via the UK’s leading Japanese car import specialists. The car had been painted multiple times the paint depth gauge readings varied from panel to panel, the car had previously been washed safely and had been garaged since. After assessing the paint we decided that the best way to proceed was with a fine grade of sand paper to sand each panel evenly by hand (sanding with a machine would have missed the low spots i.e.small dents etc.). Each panel was sanded, masked and assessed for polishing. A 3 stage machine polish was carried out and one of our high quality carnauba waxes was applied to enhance the paint followed by a ceramic sealant to really seal the gloss.
