Start.
Heavy paint scratching and swirls.


Clear bra swirls.

Certain sun angles do not show the depth of the swirls.

Lack of depth of reflection. All color is muddled.

Start of intense polishing. 11:30am to 6pm. 6.5 hours of multi-stage polishing.

Checking first panel for proper polish/pad combination.

Heavy polishing haze. Menzerna Super Intensive Polish and pad combo result.

Finish. No swirls are evident in this late afternoon hood photo.

Hurried pic before the sun went down. Sealant still remaining on front of car.

2 small dots are prior paintchip repairs. Other artifacts are lens caused. Left panel has paint sealant, sealant removed from right panel to show quality of swirl removal.

 

Next morning after detail. Client's photos.

 

Very hard clear requiring heavy handed polishing.
One of the deepest metallic colors and quite a beautiful car.
