2000 Mazda Miata


This Miata came to us in need of an extra good clean up to get ready to sell. Upon inspection it was obvious that the owner kept the vehicle very well cared for. Despite the care and attention spent maintaining and preserving this automobile’s pristine condition there was still a lot of room for improvement.

2000 Mazda Miata – Paint Correction by Autowerx Detailing.

After a thorough wash and claybar treatment the true condition of the vehicle’s paint was revealed. A “Reset” wash was used to strip previous layers of wax or sealant without leaving any gloss enhancers or silicone on the paint. The claybar treatment removes above surface bonded contaminates to ensure a silky smooth surface (even before we begin polishing). After our 1-step paint correction process the paintwork was looking significantly better. All of the shallow swirl marks and paint defects have been permanently removed and only a few really deep scratches remain in the surface.

There were several areas near the front of the vehicle that would require touch up. These areas were thoroughly cleaned, touched up with color matched paint, wet sanded, and then polished to perfection to blend the repair. The results are a professional repair that would be unnoticeable in most outdoor lighting conditions.

During the repair process the paint thickness is electronically measured with professional equipment to ensure only minimal amounts of paint are removed. This is important because the overall thickness of modern base/clear paint systems is only about as thick as a Post-It-Note!

The interior was also received a thorough detail including vacuuming, steam cleaning, and a meticulous cleaning process for all interior surfaces. (Note: the lighting looks way different due to the photos being taken at different times of the day).
