Hi all, these days I had a chance to work on a 2003 Nissan Micra. This is my friend’s car. The main task was to polish and protect the headlights and to eliminate the rust from hood and sides for a retouch job. To be honest, the car would need a serious repaint to make it look perfect, but to avoid expenses it was done the other way...

It was a rainy day, the car was delivered right from the automatic carwash.
In the garage:

Dried with Chemical Guys Woolly Mammoth

Time to clay, using 3M clay and Meg's Last touch : Distilled water at 1:1 ratio.

I expected heavier contamination on upper panels, however only on the lower parts of the vehicle the clay picked up some more dirt.

Inspecting around the car to see the defects…

Greyhound! Is this a greyhound?!? Of course it’s a greyhound!
I’ve told you guys, this is my friend’s car:thumb:

Some more inspection around the car…

http://i1146.photobucket.com/albums/o524/Black_MB/Micra%20Gil/DSC_6254_zps334c36f7.jpg

Door shuts were cleaned with Wolf’s Wash & Wipe Mean Green.

http://i1146.photobucket.com/albums/o524/Black_MB/Micra%20Gil/DSC_6258_zpsd2e812e8.jpg

The rust was rubbed off with several sharp objects.
http://i1146.photobucket.com/albums/o524/Black_MB/Micra%20Gil/DSC_6259_zpsd3500bf8.jpg

A quick test was performed with Meg’s UC, mainly just to check the clear coat hardness.

http://i1146.photobucket.com/albums/o524/Black_MB/Micra%20Gil/DSC_6261_zps08bed52d.jpg

Headlights needed some serious attention.

http://i1146.photobucket.com/albums/o524/Black_MB/Micra%20Gil/DSC_6267_zps5768805f.jpg

Before wet sanding.

After wet sanding.
http://i1146.photobucket.com/albums/o524/Black_MB/Micra%20Gil/DSC_6269_zpscd19e69a.jpg

Ready to get some paint and clear coat on.
http://i1146.photobucket.com/albums/o524/Black_MB/Micra%20Gil/DSC_6270_zps64eb2073.jpg

First the bonnet.
http://i1146.photobucket.com/albums/o524/Black_MB/Micra%20Gil/DSC_6272_zps08ee11e1.jpg
http://i1146.photobucket.com/albums/o524/Black_MB/Micra%20Gil/DSC_6275_zps29341faf.jpg

While paint on the bonnet was drying, the headlights were re-clear coated.
http://i1146.photobucket.com/albums/o524/Black_MB/Micra%20Gil/DSC_6278_zps7da58eab.jpg

Protected all around.
http://i1146.photobucket.com/albums/o524/Black_MB/Micra%20Gil/DSC_6281_zps7be52080.jpg

Clear coat drying.
http://i1146.photobucket.com/albums/o524/Black_MB/Micra%20Gil/DSC_6283_zpscfb57e34.jpg

Ready to paint the other parts.
http://i1146.photobucket.com/albums/o524/Black_MB/Micra%20Gil/DSC_6284_zpsccb1c60e.jpg
http://i1146.photobucket.com/albums/o524/Black_MB/Micra%20Gil/DSC_6286_zpsd48bc554.jpg

Then the painted areas were left about an hour to dry before the clear coat was applied.

On to the next day. The paintwork was enhanced with Menz SF4000, some parts, where more correction was needed, was treated with Meg’s UC and/of FG400.

Left door.
http://i1146.photobucket.com/albums/o524/Black_MB/Micra%20Gil/DSC_6300_zpsf2162609.jpg

Before.
http://i1146.photobucket.com/albums/o524/Black_MB/Micra%20Gil/DSC_6301_zps12688747.jpg

After. The dent surely remained…
http://i1146.photobucket.com/albums/o524/Black_MB/Micra%20Gil/DSC_6303_zpsb6a8763d.jpg

Bird droppings caused this. It could not be polished, just masked a bit with Poorboy’s Black Hole. Very little effect though.
http://i1146.photobucket.com/albums/o524/Black_MB/Micra%20Gil/DSC_6305_zps8a6b06f7.jpg

The rear part.
http://i1146.photobucket.com/albums/o524/Black_MB/Micra%20Gil/DSC_6324_zpsc71eb766.jpg
http://i1146.photobucket.com/albums/o524/Black_MB/Micra%20Gil/DSC_6326_zps1d6265aa.jpg

http://i1146.photobucket.com/albums/o524/Black_MB/Micra%20Gil/DSC_6329_zps346de042.jpg

The right door.
http://i1146.photobucket.com/albums/o524/Black_MB/Micra%20Gil/DSC_6340_zpsdf7d5b6b.jpg
http://i1146.photobucket.com/albums/o524/Black_MB/Micra%20Gil/DSC_6343_zps6ffe726d.jpg

Again, moving on to the front part. Clear coat fully dried, time to wet sand.
http://i1146.photobucket.com/albums/o524/Black_MB/Micra%20Gil/DSC_6308_zps87993477.jpg
http://i1146.photobucket.com/albums/o524/Black_MB/Micra%20Gil/DSC_6310_zps7fac289d.jpg

After wet sanding some passes with 3M Trizact #3000 on DA was performed…
http://i1146.photobucket.com/albums/o524/Black_MB/Micra%20Gil/DSC_6312_zpse9f13cbb.jpg

…leaving this.
http://i1146.photobucket.com/albums/o524/Black_MB/Micra%20Gil/DSC_6313_zps51938517.jpg
http://i1146.photobucket.com/albums/o524/Black_MB/Micra%20Gil/DSC_6315_zpsfbf4b3b8.jpg

All polished out. Certainly not perfect, but huge improvement.
http://i1146.photobucket.com/albums/o524/Black_MB/Micra%20Gil/DSC_6317_zps297470e3.jpg

Interior cleaning was not ordered. But just couldn’t help myself. And didn’t want the car like this to leave my garage… After removing carpets:

Then, after the car was already colletected, I realized I forgot to take photos of the sides!!! So went by and took some photos with the cell phone…
