This is the former S&R Racing car here in Tampa, Rob(Primogen- our best ex-CO) picked the car up about a month or two ago and gave me a call to get it cleaned up for a show coming up. I must say, Ive seen the car before and was a little nervous with all the fiberglass molding and unsure condition of the paint. The entire front end is all aftermarket and I wasnt sure how the paint was going to hold up either, since it had cracked in a couple spots due to the flexing of the kit. Basically I told Rob, that I could make the car look a whole lot better, but was a little nervous to go for a full correction and he agreed. I ended up going at it with SIP/Orange and got very good results, actually night and day but the deeper swirling and some deeper scratched remained. Well on to the pics..
