ScheerSpeed Detailed: 360FORGED Corvette C6

Red Corvette C6

I
was called to come out and inspect this car one day because it had been in a shop and had gotten some overspray that needed removal. Upon inspecting the car, i found there were some light swirls, along with RIDS in a few isolated spots. I decided that a two-stage polishing job would get the car to 99% perfection, and the owner agreed, so i got to work.

Before:

you can see that the car has some settled dust, and the lower portions including the wheels needed some serious cleaning.





















Here's what the car looked like after being all cleaned up and after clay bar decontamination.





you can see te light swirls and scratches



















The brinkmann dual xenon light shows the true finish, just like the sunlight, however the metallic red color makes it difficult to photograph.









Before/after of the tail lights. the owner requested that i remove the black fire covers









A few shots of the perfected finish after polishing
































And the finished product!

Thanks for looking!

Great job on the paint, and also the inside of the exhaust pipes. Man, I really hate those red wheels.
