and now onto the before pictures













after wash and clay






what water etching looks like close-up. these marks had to be sanded down.

























Some deep scratches that were on the roof. i informed the owner that these could not be removed completely safely, but that i could reduce them so they werent visible.






look how deep!









the hood was very badly pitted























I finished day one at 10pm after compounding with M95. Day two i arrived at 9AM and got to work with SIP on a orange CCS pad, and following that with 85RD on a 3M Ultrafina UK pad. i love these pads for finishing!

after polishing was finished around 10PM on day two, i applied Dodo Juice Lime Prime Lite, and folloewd that with Rubbish Boy's Original Edition wax; which is my favorite wax .






i allowed the wax to set for an hour before removing it with a CG 530XL towel. i called it a night at around 1AM after removing the wax.

Back for day three at 8AM. I started the morning with a starbucks coffee and marble loaf... gotta wake up somehow after almost no sleep...

i got to work in the morning by first giving the car a wipedown with ice-cold water to remove any excess wax that may have sweated out overnight. after that i did a wipedown with FK 425, my favorite QD, and then cleaned the windows with Stoner's Invisible Glass.

after FK 425:
















this wax beads water VERY WELL!

























Now onto the interior. I decided to tackle this with CG Extreme Leather Cleaner.







How about a 50/50? left side is clean





All clean





more soiled leather...













remember that nice white towel?
well this is how it looked after just the two seats!





Finished pictures



































































and the Interior













And now i decided to try out my polarizing filter again















and a finishing touch!





that's all for the Vette!




Ferarri and Porsche

right after finishing up the blue vette, another customer of mine, who happens to be the next door neighbor of the vette owner, asked me to give his two cars a wash. I used DuraGloss soap.


















and then i got to drive the ferarri



thats all for now. Thanks for looking!

I was like, wait, I've seen this before. Then I realized. I've seen it before. This is a pretty old thread!

I followed a Gallardo and F430 home from work the other day. Beautiful cars, and great sounding, too.
