The Mazda RX7 is now a cult classic, this particular model the FD was produced from 1992 to 2002, noted for its unusual and remarkable Wankel rotary engine, the 1300cc twin turbo engine produces an incredible 252bhp in a car that only weighed 1200kg made it a very quick car in its day.
This particular car was manufactured in 2002 and has never seen a drop of rain, this stored show car was in remarkable condition, making our job all the much easier.
We started in the usual manner with the wash and de contamination stages, taking care not to mark the rather soft paintwork, once completed the car was dried and ready for inspection under our lights, the images below are of the car prior to any work being undertaken, very little damage considering the age of the car.
Before any work was carried out on the cars paintwork we got to work on the engine bay and underside of the car, as this is first and foremost a show car, particular attention was to be paid to these areas, so great car was taken to clean the engine bay using citrus de greasers and filtered tap water via a hose, the same care was taken with the underneath of the car.
With these areas now taken car of we could now get to work on the cars paintwork, and due to the rather soft paintwork a great deal of car was taken to ensure that no machine induced defects were inflicted to the paint whilst removing the existing defects within the cars paintwork.
Once completed we could then move onto the finishing stages, finishing the cars paintwork off with two coats of Swissvax Crystal Rock.
