This Guards Red GTS spends time on the track. Time to make it look like a garage queen. Those wheels are not bronze….they are actually gold and that red will pop like it should after a good wash and paint decon.

After a wash, clay decon, and inspection, I’m convinced there are ZERO swirl free areas on this 2005 996 turbo S cabriolet. 😁

A quick video tour of the revitalized 89 Targa. Full photos coming soon.

Sometimes it’s not just about polishing, but preservation while polishing. Yet another G-body Targa in for just that. This 33 year old single stage black will look like tinted glass! 😎

The C4S detail is complete.  Look for the official “For Sale” post.  What’s with the old guy creeping up the rear?

37K mile, 2017 BMW 440i that the new owner wants to whip back into shape. Looks like the previous owner was a big fan of the car wash tunnels. 😳

Check out the trunk 50/50 after first cut. It will get a final polish and then Adam’s Graphene Advanced ceramic coating.

Not a lot of time to make Tik Tok videos….I’m busy wet sanding RIDS and polishing paint.  😎

When your day isn’t over but the time change makes the daylight end. Let’s get this one washed so I can be inside tomorrow for a rainy Friday.

If the painter can’t lay clear smooth, I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t use the same place to “buff” and ceramic coat the rest of the car. Tons of scratches remain on the entire car and some fresh new holograms on the hood, but at least it was shiny….🙄

I’ll level out the “dry” clear coat application on the front bumper areas and then treat the rest of the car to a multi-step polish and re-apply a ceramic coating.

Here are some samples of the work in progress.

This one is going to be fun and very satisfying. Had to break away from interior cleaning to try a quick little spot on the 34 year old very chalky and oxidized single stage Grand Prix White exterior.

Now, it’s starting to be a good ”10 footer”. There are still quite a few paint defects and blemished from previous owners’ neglect, but I’d be willing to get a measuring tape and call this a good “3 footer”! I think the customer will be very pleased with the end result.

Beware of photos posted online. Lighting and angles can make *almost* anything look good. The Benz photo from yesterday was prior to any polishing and yet it still looks black and shiny due to angle. I didn’t show the ”top side” of the vehicle straight on. Here are the real photos of the car that all of you “liked”. Gotcha! 😎

Today is polishing day and I’ll post some final pictures in a future thread.

When they say “It’s a good 10 footer”….here is the latest victim after a good strip wash, decon, crumbling pin stripe tape removal and clay surface prep.

I’ll give everyone a day or two to 👍🏻 this photo before I show you the actual condition of this 1989 Mercedes. Kinda spoiled it already by saying that, but oh just you wait!

Black vehicles that sit outside need constant care. If not, what you get are water spots, swirls, and oxidation resulting in a dull and lifeless surface. Once it’s brought back to life, notice the increase in clarity and reflection.

It’s Corvette cruise-in time again. Hangin’ with Old Dominion Corvette Club at the 33rd Annual All Corvette Cruise-In hosted by Bomnin Chevrolet. And this year they are showing the pre-production 2023 C8 Z06 which made a stop here on its North American tour.

When your brand new car comes pre-sanded for your convenience. Looks like that tiny little spec in the middle of the sanding scratches was a much larger fish eye that the dealership went after.
