The Owner contacted me Via Local Car Forum. The car had 6,000 miles on the clock and he had just bought the car not that long ago. The car had some pretty bad swirls and some water spots with some etching. The owner originally was scheduled for a 1 step paint but i knew the paint needed more than that so I made the owner a good deal on a Full paint correction job.

This end Result was Great!!! Just Perfect!!! That Red/Orange paint just looked amazing when all the defects were removed.

Car was started Wednesday night and finishing Friday night.

Total time: 26 Hours

This car was exterior only. Interior & underhood was untouched.

Handz, holy hell. Sometimes you can be an ass on here but your attention to detail and hard work is un-deniable.

The finished product is sick. I'm kind of surprised the paint was that bad with just 6k on the odometer.

I bet 90% of the users on here have paint this bad if you get up close and look at things :rolleyes:

Maybe so, but it really shows up on the SRT.

I know my paint is worse than that. I can't help the cheap "repair" a shop did before I bought it... but I still want to learn how to detail like that.

Start small in my case, hah.
