As you may have seen in our last 2011 Review post, things have picked up considerably for the team here at NorthWest Auto Salon. We’re rolling deep around the clock on details for our appreciative customers & doing our best to get every vehicle Cats Exotics has been taking delivery of looking better than new – from the classics to the latest & greatest in supercars.

So, in an effort to keeping things short & sweet, here’s a quick look into the Connoisseur Detail we performed on a red hot Nissan GT-R!

Nissan built the GT-R to be a road going monstrosity; it sports a body shape maximized for grip & slipping through the air, plus it’s paired with enough technology & firing power to scare a Transformer. It’s pretty easy to see how the GT-R lineage gained such a strong cult following from the very beginning; whether you’re a high tech import fan or not, appreciation for the sheer mechanical madness of the Skyline/GT-R lineage is almost mandatory at this point.

Much like the GT-R, our Connoisseur Detail treatment was designed with the hard-core enthusiast in mind; constructed for a customer who demands the most out of their vehicle, in both raw performance & aesthetics. Firstly, the full Menzerna line is used to remove unsightly swirl marks, micro-marring, light etching, holograms & medium scratches via a 3-step buff & polish; the Connoisseur Detail is one of our top paint correction offerings here at NWAS, and definitely a service this beast could benefit from.

As you can see from the LED inspection, the car’s bright red finish was retaining a fair amount of damage. Between the hard water spots & considerably large buffer swirls, this GT-R’s surface was begging to be refinished.

After hitting the GT-R with our signature 24 Step – handwash over the entire vehicle (wheels, arches, and door, engine and trunk jambs,) hand drying using compressed air and synthetic absorber towels, and a full paint and window decontamination with clay bar, it was time to dig into the meat of the detail. The Connoisseur Detail treatment always results in an extremely brilliant, deep and glossy finish that, with our sealant & wax combo, will last for 4-6 months depending on vehicle storage, maintenance, weather, and mileage. The perfect fit for a new car looking for a new home!

This 50-50 shot was snapped on the hood of the GT-R after round 2 of the 3-stage corrective machine buff & polish – the difference is pretty eye opening already! Stage 3 goes the extra mile to remove all the leftover light surface damage and, once we apply our synthetic sealant or carnauba wax over the paintwork, it ensures a mirror-like top coat.

The finished surface sports an incredible level of shine and a spoiler so clean you could eat off it!

Much like the painted exterior trim pieces on the hood, front clip, and rear bumper, the GT-R puts it’s power down via a set of metallic gunmetal wheels. With our Connoisseur Detail, they received an additional coat of wheel sealant/wax on the rim faces, before dressing the tires with a non-splatter, non-oily dressing to give them that fresh rubber shine.

With the GT-R looking pristine, we rolled the car out into the sunlight so Blake could give it another once over & the seal of approval before it hit the showroom at Cats Exotics.
