    Black Corvette...

    I hope you guys are not getting sick of my detailing posts...

    I should post this tomorrow instead, but what the heck...
    I still need to do the interior and engine bay, which both have some mods worth seeing...

    This car I've done at least 3 times before. I usually detail it around this time every year in preparation for the Vettes on the Rockies next weekend in the mountains of Breckenridge Colorado

    I could see how in just one year, the paint can get abused, even though the owner doesn't drive the car during the Winter, still it had some issues that I could've spent more time fixing, but all he wanted was to "clean the paint and wax". Whatever that means

    So, since he wasn't paying for a thorough paint correction, I still gave me him a good bang for his money given that he's a regular...

    Process:
    Claybar
    Polish with Menzerna
    Prima Amigo
    Blackfire Wet Diamond Sealant

    After washing the car and claybar, I started to see all the issues on the finish. Lots of swirls, some minor scratches, and lots of water spots
    Again, the customer wasn't paying for all of this to be taken care.
    My goal was to polish the whole car with one pass of Menzerna, and whatever this could fix, that would be it. To my surprise it came up aces!

    Before:

    Water spots that still remained after claybar, and IPA wipedown...




    Water spots/swirls gone after one pass*:








    Afters:















    * One pass means, buffing an area for around 4 mins to work the polish...depending on the polish you're using. Menzerna has a longer working time and usually takes about that long to work it in...

    Menz is so bad ass. I am always amazed at how great it works. 1 pass and it looks almost new again.

    Yes you can but the results will be no where near what you can achieve using a buffer.

    This car was also at the Vettes On The Rockies Corvette Show
    It's got some compliment from people asking what was done to make the car look that black
    I wasn't there, just the owner of the car and some friends that told me when I got thete

    Anyway. Menzerna is considered one of the best polishes in the world. It's my goto polish and it's done a great job for me
    You can google Menzerna SIP, or Menzerna Super Intensive Polish
    I'd recommend you get it for Autogeek.net or Properautocare.com
