Once the GT86 was washed and prepared for polishing, I was able to thoroughly inspect the paint to see what kind of condition it was in, the defects were very minor so only a light machine was needed to remove the defects.
Below are a few “before & afters” during the machine polishing stage.
Once the machine polishing stages were complete the paint was wiped down with a mixture of Isopropyl Alcohol/Distilled Water to break down and remove any polish residue. 22PLE VX1 Pro Signature Glass Coat was then applied, this coating uses the latest in low volatile content silicon (Si) technology to lay down a film of polysiloxane and alkosiloxane polymers that condense rapidly to form a very thin, fully crystallized glass (SiO2) coating that chemically bonds to painted surfaces at the molecular level.
As a result of being coated with an ultra-smooth, relatively dense layer of fully crystallized glass, treated surfaces become naturally water hating (hydrophobic), which causes rainfall and rinse water to bead up and roll off very quickly. This extreme beading not only looks good, but also tends to pick up and carry away fresh contaminants, which, combined with the naturally high scratch resistance of the coating, makes routine washing easier and safer as a result. In addition to these benefits, 22PLE VX1 Pro Signature Glass Coat also provides excellent protection against bird droppings, bug splatter, road salt and harmful UV radiation for up to twenty four months at a time, even on daily drivers (it is virtually impervious to cleaning chemicals and pressure washing, and once fully cured can only really be removed by machine polishing!).
The wheels and exhaust were coated with 22PLE VM1 Signature Rim & Metal Coat, this state of the art glass coating specifically formulated to withstand extreme temperatures (up to 700°C) and offers excellent protection against brake dust and road salt for up to eighteen months at a time.
The exterior plastic trim was coated with 22PLE VR1 Signature Plastic & Trim Restorer, the photo below shows the difference that was made with the right side being coated and the left yet to be treated.
And here is the end result…
