1998 Green Teal Z28 detailed...
10-second 1998 Z28...
I did a four-step process on the paint for this one: No interior...
-Polished with Menzerna
-Blackfire Gloss Enhancer Polish
-Blackfire Wet Diamond Sealant
-Wheels: Metal Polish (Mild cleaner)
-Tires: Dynamic Detailing Concourse Tire Gel
Paint was in pretty decent shape. It had some sanding mark on the drivers' side of the hood, which I corrected. Pics to follow...
The car cleaned real nice, brought the paint back to its originally glistening brightness and then some...
Hood rash before...:
Hood rash corrected:
Rest of the before shots:
A nasty scratch on rear right side fender (keyed :banghead: ) I tried to improve, but it was too deep...
After: a little better, you have to look at it from a right angle to be able to see it :thumbsup: :
Can hardly see it:

That kid on the scooter is way too close for comfort and it's not even my car haha. How'd you take out the scratches?

How would I take scratches out?
It just depends how bad they are and how bad someone wants them gone
The safest approach is obviously buffing. That's what I did in this case. I use M105 (Meguiars Ultra Compound) a yeloow pad, then followed with Menzerna and an orange pad. That's about as safe as you can go using a machine like my Flex DA, or even with a high-speed buffer...
Another option will still be buffing, but it will involve wool pads and a more aggressive compound with a high-speed buffer. If you have experience you'd probably know what I'm talking about, if not, then should be very careful at using this method
And lastly, wetsanding combined with the wool pad buffing option.
Again, unless somebody is paying to have that removed, I wouldn't try to go out of my way to completely remove it .
A lot of things can go bad.
I do my best to buff them out as much as I can, while being cautious and safe...

It's Summer time in the Rockies. Everybody wants their car detailed.
Not as busy as it may look, but is picking up a little...
Yeah, I should've. Car has a Procharger and some goodies. Not too flashy, just runs strong
BTW, I'm working on a C6 right now. I may have posted pics of it from last year when I detailed it last, but this time, it has a customed 1st production run of a Supercharger designed and patented by the owner of the car, who also owns a speed shop
Anyway, this car will be at a photoshoot for a magazine on Wednesday. I hope to have it done by then; interior, exterior, engine bay, etc...
It has some wicked custom paint job (air brush)
Car ran 10.7 up here
It will be dynoed on Tuesday and ready for Wednesday. I will post pics of the complete job soon after that
In the meantime, a few teaser of the work in progress...

To give you a good example, I met a guy who moved here from Houston. His stock T/A ran 13.9's down in Texas, he almost cried whe he car ran 15.1 up here l:
The 10.70 in Florida may be a high 9's. I don't think it will be a full second difference, since when you're putting that much power, once you're into the 10's will require a lot more power to shave off 10ths than if you were running 13's. Makes sense?
So, I think that car could bust some 9.8's 10 flat at sea-level...

I was never a big fan of green on these cars but I must say- I have changed my mind.
