Detailed: 1999 Honda S2000 AP1 [BMW Sparkling Brown]

  • Wash and decontamination
  • Multi-stage wetsanding
  • Multi-stage paint correction
  • HD Poxy Sealant

This S2000 had recently been resprayed in a BMW Sparkling Brown. With both the painter and client wanting to take the paint to the next level, we set out to remove the orange peel of the off-the-gun finish and create a smooth, glossy, textureless finish with crisp reflections and deep metallic gloss.

Each panel was wetsanded, flattened, polished and finished with HD Poxy to exude an outstanding wet-look shine unattainable by just a simple cut and polish.

Many people believe that a fully resprayed car doesn’t need to be detailed. We beg to differ – there’s always room for improvement.
