Oakes Detailed: Twin Turbo Supra - 1 of 14

A 1998 Toyota Supra twin turbo 6 speed, in its Imperial Jade Mica green paint job - evidently 1 of 14 TT 6 speed Supras in existence with this color - came through for a much needed revival.



As you can see in the photo above the paint is certainly faded and in desperate need of correction. So over the course of three days we focused primarily on getting the depth, clarity and gloss back from the paint as well as the rest of the defects. Unfortunately, there was severe sun burn on the bumpers that completely diminished the clear in certain spots. However, there was a huge overall improvement to both remove and prevent future fading.

Heres how the Supra looked when we started..

Here is a mix of before and after photos of the correction/restoration to the paint, starting with the wing before we removed it:

The rear bumper fading, the spots remaining are areas where the clear coat has completely oxidized away, no repair through detailing unfortunately

Overall gloss improvement short of the permanent blemishes



The greatest improvement seen on the car was the hood, which suffered oxidation, marring and water staining. Here you can see the before, during and after results.
