Default My '98 GTP - Full Detail

Seeing that I have some time on my hands now, I decided to give my '98 GTP with almost 121k on the clock its full detail for the spring.

The whole process took me around 7.5 hours, which included the interior, engine bay and the exterior.

The engine bay was degreased and then dressed with Meguiar's #40. The exterior was washed with a foam gun and Meguiar's NXT Wash, then clay barred with foam gun and Sonus clay. Polished the paint with my PC7424, white pad and Meguiar's DACP (used orange pad for deeper scratches, etc.). Applied Klasse AIO by hand followed by Menzerna FMJ.

Not bad for being 12 years old, driven 50+ miles day for the past 3 years and sitting outside as well.

Now... on to the pics (had to include the G8 as well)!





Nice reflections for silver!

Also, the GTP may be for sale soon depending on how the job hunt goes... if anyone is interested in buying it.

A couple years back when I still lived in Palatine. I got the engine cover painted when I had SLP Gen 1 done.
