Not a GTR...I bleed blue. lol. Those who know me, I do high end detailing for a living. The type of detailing that can take anywhere from 10-60 hours on one vehicle. For my new to me Mach 1, the car deserved my highest level package. For a car with 23,000 miles on it, it deserved to look like it was brand new. Paint was in pretty rough shape and needed a lot of work. Previous owner had it detailed by a less than professional detailer and the paint was covered in marring. Engine bay was just as bad. So, spent the last 3 days doing the car out fully. 100% correction, all jambs cleaned and sealed, engine bay/paint was cleaned and sealed/dressed. Then applied the Opti-Guard Resin Treatment to the paint. Paint came out amazing. Literally looks better than new. Under all the micro marring, scratches and water etching, was amazing paint. 
 
Pulled it in too start cleaning.

Bro, your work is amazing! I didn't think the car looked that bad until the side by side comparison and the final pictures.

 

Great Job!!!

Holy **** that is amazing.  The full body shots don't do it justice.  The close ups showing the before and after and especially the 50/50 shot really bring it home the true transformation.  Wow, you've got skills!!

My first car that we bought (other than my hand-me down 1967 Ford Fairlaine 500)

 

1979 fox body Mustang, in tangerine orange, with the 3.3 liter inline 6 cylinder.

 

It rusted through the floor.
