It was a pleasure working with Jag on the recent purchase of a previously owned car for our daughter. Jag has a calm and professional sales approach that conveys a high degree of honesty and integrity. I would definitely recommend Jag at Key West Ford to anyone looking to purchase a vehicle. Nick in finance was also a pleasure to deal with, his organized, friendly and personable approach made the paperwork quick and easy and was very much appreciated!

Miniature Nissan Car Wash Ensures Better Paint Options for Seattle Residents

Tags:
(Posted on Dec 16, 2017 at 11:58AM by Billy Kirk)


Ever wonder what a car wash the size of a popcorn machine can manage to accomplish? Well, now’s your chance to get that unlikely question answered. Nissan’s Technical Center North America, located in Michigan, has recently been making great use of this tiny contraption to test exterior paint samples.



This is no joke. The miniature car wash enables Nissan to see how new paints for the 370Z and similar vehicles stand up to the elements. Engineers are able to make use of tiny brushes that spin at 180 revolutions per minute (RPM) to throw dirt and water jets at diminutive test samples to replicate the abrasiveness of real-world conditions.



Just how tiny are the miniature cars themselves? In the video above, you’re looking at a 370Z that is at a 1:16 scale. However, note that this is for fun, illustrative purposes only. In actual testing, the paint is instead applied to small rectangular plates that are then put through the wash. Repeated assessments help Nissan to determine which finishes are the most durable.

If you're in the market for a 370Z, there is an array of incredible exterior paint finishes to choose from. These include Brilliant Silver, Chicane Yellow, Gun Metallic, Deep Blue Pearl, Passion Red, Magnetic Black, Pearl White, and Solid Red.

If you’re interested in learning more about Nissan’s quality control measures, don’t hesitate to pick up the phone and chat with us in Seattle!
