Detailer's Domain: Techart Magnum - Massive Paint Correction

This is truly a rare breed. We put 20 hours into this one. Just about everything was done to this one, full interior, engine detail, full exterior paint correction.

Heavy swirls, scratches, holograms galore. I believe the customer was pretty happy with the grin on his face.

What was done -
Exterior

- Wheels were prepped with Sonax Wheel Cleaner and cleaned up with various brushes
- Tires were spritzed down with Adam's All Purpose Cleaner and washed down
- Wheel wells were cleaned up
- Wash down and rinsed
- Door jambs were cleaned up
- Clayed
- Dried
- Tires dressed
- Masking
- 3 Step Paint correction (Meg's M105, Something being tested ; ) )
- Inspection with Fenix, 3m Sun Gun, Infratech, and natural sunlight
- Last Step - Menzerna Power Lock and Lusso Oro
- Rubber and Plastics Treated
- Exterior windows and mirrors cleaned and sealed
- Exhaust tips cleaned
- Windows were clayed and sealed

I hate to see black all jacked up like that, glad you guys fixed it! Black is my favorite when all cleaned up, I don't think I could handle it on my personal car.
