A Masterpiece Reborn: Paint Correction and Ceramic Coating for a 2007 Saleen Parnelli Jones Mustang

The 2007 Saleen Parnelli Jones Mustang, a true collector’s gem, boasts a distinctive blend of style and power that demands admiration.

This high-performance vehicle echoes the muscle car era, from its Grabber Orange exterior to the throwback black hood and side stripes. However, when its owner, a discerning collector, noticed that the car’s once-brilliant orange paint had lost its luster, he turned to us for a transformation. 

After a thorough consultation, we noticed a canvas impaired by oxidation, swirls, and scratches that concealed the Mustang’s true brilliance. The real challenge lay on our shoulders — to restore this masterpiece to its former glory. As experts in automotive restoration, we took the project of rejuvenating the 2007 Saleen Mustang, ensuring it shines like new for years to come.

Exterior Preparation and Chemical Decontamination

In the initial phase of our restoration process, we started by washing the 2007 Saleen Parnelli Jones Mustang. It helped remove any dirt and debris that could diminish the appearance of this muscle car. Next, we employed chemical decontamination that targeted embedded contaminants that survived ordinary washing (Read: waxes or filling products). 

By using specialized solutions, we eliminated any pollutants that could potentially compromise the paint’s integrity over time. Our diligent pre-care process didn’t end here — we then used a clay bar treatment to further purify the surface. It resulted in an immaculate foundation for our restoration efforts.

To enhance precision and avoid any unintentional damage to the matte vinyl and plastic trim of the Mustang, we strategically tapped off these areas. This comprehensive exterior preparation not only resulted in a flawless finish but also enhanced the features of the Saleen Mustang. Another reason we invested time in this pre-care process was to ensure that our following paint correction and ceramic coating would adhere seamlessly. After all, we wanted to achieve nothing short of long-lasting and impeccable transformation for this automotive masterpiece.

Two-Stage Paint Correction and Polish

Since the 2007 Saleen Mustang was spoiled by deep scratches and swirls, we employed our Two-Stage Paint Correction as a rescue. This process boasts a two-fold approach with an impressive correction rate of 95 plus. Firstly, we started with a dual-action, non-forced rotation polisher to tackle the oxidation and those pesky deeper scratches. 

Then, it’s time for the finishing touch – a meticulous final polish that brings out the true vibrancy of your car’s color. As a result, the Mustang gets a rejuvenated paint finish that is free of visible blemishes and amps up the overall aesthetic appeal of the ride. 

The result is a rejuvenated paint finish that eliminates visible defects and enhances the vehicle’s overall aesthetic appeal.

Ceramic Coating Application

After giving the 2007 Saleen Parnelli Jones Mustang a makeover with paint correction, we wanted to ensure its newfound brilliance lasts. That’s why we applied Ceramic Coating to the paint, glass, and wheels – the ultimate shield against the elements.

We chose Gyeon Infinite Type 1 Ceramic coating for the exterior painted panels. Since this coat is based on fluoro-modified polysilazanes, it establishes a permanent bond and is a potent barrier against UV rays and chemical damage. As a result, this ceramic coating helps preserve the vehicle’s aesthetics and structural integrity, ensuring that it stands the test of time.

Wheels face their fair share of dirt, brake dust, and salt on the road. To keep them gleaming, we applied Gyeon Q2 Rim, a high-temperature-resistant wheel coating. This specialized treatment safeguards against the corrosive effects of brake dust, road grime, and salt, extending the life and appearance of your wheels.

The windshield and two front side windows benefit from Gyeon Q2 View, a coating that enhances water repellency. This not only improves visibility during adverse weather conditions but also facilitates easier cleaning. The result? A clear and enjoyable driving experience! In essence, the ceramic coating delivers a glossy finish to the Mustang, along with self-cleaning properties.
