For some reason, cars are sometimes left in storage for a long time. This applies to the 1982 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am, which has been washed for the first time in 27 years since 1995 without touching the garage.
The talented people who make AMMO parts have completed this restoration and as usual they have done a great job. The car was in relatively good condition, having spent 27 years of standby in a fully enclosed garage, but the team still had a lot of work to do.
The first step was to electrically wash the dust, dirt and spider webs outside Pontiac. After doing this, you can see that the paint is shining again. Next, soap the paint, the wheels, and the engine compartment and let it sit. After a little soaking, the soap was rinsed off and the wheels were removed to clean the underside. This involves first blowing out all the empty laundry and then washing it properly with soap and pressurized water. Before returning to the hull, the area of the wheel well was thoroughly cleaned.

The first procedure for the body was a touch wash to remove any sticky dirt that was not removed during the initial non-contact wash. Once the car was clean and dry, it was measured to determine how much paint depth could be adjusted, and not surprisingly, it was very thin. It was decided that one step was a way to polish, but this very little work even changed the world in the finishing of paint. The final step in the look was to polish the car’s matching caps.
Moving to the interior of the Firebird, it was necessary to remove all loose dirt before performing a thorough cleaning. After treatment, the light surface mold is removed with a special cleaner, and then the inside is cleaned with a soft foam and a steam vacuum cleaner to restore the coating. Finally, the separated chair beam was reattached and the inside was completely disinfected.
When it was all over, it was just a matter of deep cleaning the tires, using a paint seal to protect the newly restored finish, reinstalling the caps, and closing the tires. You can watch the video below to see for yourself the amazing recovery work.
