The bodywork is pretty bad on my IS200 I picked up last week. It doesn't bother me too much, I like a project and I live in a city full of narrow streets so worrying about perfect bodywork is pointless. By far the worst is this deep dent on the rear. Any advice on how to best go about repairing this? Hammer it out as best as I can, bodyfiller then paint? For now I've just removed the loose paint and put a layer of rustoleum paint on, but obviously this is just temporary.
I have a new NX on order which, after much deliberation with the other half, will be in Velvet Black.
I know that being black and non metallic, light scratches and swirling will show up more readily than on lighter bodywork. As such we were considering taking the Lexus paint protector which I think is through Supagard.
So my question is will this type of protection even help towards preventing swirls etc. And if so is the Lexus offering good value/worth while? E.g. would I be better off taking it to a third party auto detailer? Any advice or experience would be greatly appreciated
Dear fellow owners,
I am just replacing all the four calipers on my IS250 (the new ones are still in the box), and I was wondering on getting them laquered to protect those from rust.
Ideally I would't paint them so I am planning to use a clear coat only.
I found these products on amazon, would you think those would work on their own, without a coloured primer?
Thanks for your time.
