Special Detail: Liquid Finish & Nth Degree Detailing take on a Red Ferrari 355 GTS

Special Liquid Finish & Nth Degree Detail for a beautiful unique 355 Ferrari. Chris from Nth Degree Detailing and I recently teamed up this relatively well preserved vehicle. The owner reached out to both of us to improve and enhance the overall appearance of the vehicle. Our inspection visits and paint measurements revealed a few repainted sections and a pretty rough front clear bra. We decided to go for a safe 85% correction detail so that the vehicle will have plenty of life and leeway for maintenance. Total  time of 30 man hours over the course of two days. Read on more for picture instruction and descriptions of all the work involved. Sadly for all the madness I could only take so many pictures.

About the vehicle:

In 1995, Ferrari introduced the GTS model to the F355 family. The GTS model is based on the Berlinetta but offers a removable “targa-style” hard top roof, which can be stored behind the seats. Other specifications were identical to the Berlinetta. A total of 2,577 GTS models were produced, with 2,048 delivered with the 6-speed transmission and another 529 with the F1 transmission. This was the last GTS Targa style model produced by Ferrari.
