After washing and claying the entire vehicle to exfoliate the paint to prevent further damage, we polished the paint with a three stage paint correcting polish and a D/A polsher (D/A is a "Dual-Action" polisher as opposed to a "high speed" or "rotary" buffer).
The polish completely eliminated the small scratches rather than temporarily hiding them like a wax or swirl remover would. We want true results rather than temporary results. This took several hours to complete, but once the surface was smooth and blemish free, we applied two coats of a durable paint sealant that forms an invisible sheild over the surface. Once the sealant had time to bond to the paints, surface, we appilied to two coats of a premium paste wax for additional protection as well as delivering a look that is unparalleled. The marring was gone and we were left with a deep shine.
We wanted to make the flakes in the paint stand out to add stronger depth and clarity.
The trunk lid was retored to its original brilliance as well.
Our client was very gracious to allow us to work on her car for two days and we were all very pleased with the results. We thoroughly enjoyed working on this car and the contrast was amazing.
