Some notable features on the '63 Continental are the hinged "suicide" doors, retractable vinyl top (trunk-lid is all one piece) and a "tilt-away" steering wheel borrowed from Thunderbird. Please continue reading below to follow the processes we took to make turn this Continental into a beautiful example of automotive history.Now that the initial wash has been completed, it's time to prepare for the polishing process! First we go over the vehicle to assess what issues need to be fixed. Next we used a clay towel to remove any surface contaminants the initial wash didn't remove.

We also recommended getting his new vinyl top coated to give it that rich black look!
In order for us to properly gauge what compounds, pads and polishes we need to use to correct the paint, we needed to do a few test spots. We thought a 1-step polish would be sufficient enough but we found a 1.5 step polish was the better option. After the polishing was all completed we moved on to the ceramic coating process!
