Decided to detail the car a few days ago. Full interior/exterior clean, full clay bar followed by a 2 stage polish, paint sealant and wax. Turned out really nice. Took it to work and it rained lol (to be expected but at least the car is protected nicely).

Products used

-Griots Garage polisher
-Griots Garage polishes
-Griots Garage paint sealant
-Chemical guys 5050 wax
-Chemical guys wheel wax
-Chemical guys leather cleaner
-Motul leather conditioner (i know, weird but it works really well, doesn't leave a horrible gloss shine and smells great)
-Sonax wheel cleaner
-Autoglym vinyl/plastic cleaner
-Autoglym carpet cleaner
-Autoglym glass cleaner
-Autoglym odor eliminator
-Wurth rubber care (door/trunk seal treatment)

Love that interior.... which is super strange as I remember looking into 70/80s sports cars with similar colours and cringing hard. Haha

Ya I hear you. I wasn't always a fan of red interiors but they did a great job with these cars and it works really well with the piano black trim.

They're a lot more subtle now though. Red seats and door card inserts as an accent vs making almost every square inch of the entire interior violently red.

That car cost way less than what you guys may think it takes to build. If I don't put a dollar figure to my time, it's much much cheaper than any of the cars posted on this page lol.

The original owner of the car actually flew in from Japan last week and he saw the car again for the first time in 15 years today. We spent some time going over all the changes etc.

He was happy, which makes me happy. Pretty neat.

Yea it's the Genesis G90. I actually really like the wheels, some say they're too busy but I think they're perfectly elegant.

If you want them on your own car you can get a set of these
