Paint Correction Time

Undergoing paint correction after receiving a fresh coat from the auto body shop is quite usual, primarily to eliminate marks left by sanding and buffing. If the auto body shop is willing to attend to this, it’s a bonus. However, achieving the level of paint perfection desired could easily demand between 20 to 100 hours of meticulous work, and even beyond 200 hours for a car intended for exhibition.

Observe the enhancement in figures via the Rhopoint IQ Gloss meter, assuring us that we are achieving the intended result. This type of scientific instrument differentiates us from our competitors. Our emphasis lies on quality, not quantity. A quick buff or “complimentary” paint correction might suffice for the average car and satisfy many, yet our commitment is to prioritize our philosophy above all.

Engine bay prep prior paint protection film application

Managing dirt and debris during the installation of paint protection film can present a formidable task. The process tends to dislodge dirt and debris because of the water used, which moves freely due to gravity. Hence, the cleaner the initial state, the fewer problems one will encounter with dirt and debris.

Carzwerk Story

This one will be a long story with lot of pictures documentation. We only know part of the car’s history, but it’s a great story and we want to take the opportunity to share it with the car enthusiasts out there.

We put the car back together and we were all smiles when we saw the end result. This Supra can now get back in the wild and teach new generations what 2JZ-engine is all about. From all of us here at Carzwerk, we want to take this opportunity to thank Lawrence for allowing us to work on this partial restoration project.

Now why did we say partial? Well that’s a story for another time…

After the mechanic shop magic, let’s begin the second round of the work. With more parts can be removed from the car after the mechanic shop assistance and recommendation, we are replacing the parts when necessary. Oxidized plastic parts, rusted bolts, even the “painted” emblems grommet, why not?

After nights and multiple attempt of research of the part numbers, we were able to do our Lego project without the instructions.
