    Maserati Gran Turismo correction detail **pic heavy**

    I was contacted for this car to fix some "hazing" on the rear quarter after film had been removed from the car. Evidence of some less than par rotary work was quickly identified. Section was corrected and the rest of the car was evalutated at which point customer requested a 1 step correction and sealant.

    LSP was Gloss-It Signature Gloss. I was very impressed with this LSP. It has a bit of a learning curve because you use such a tiny amount and it spreads VERY far. I used less than 1/3 oz for the whole car. While it sat curing for a little over an hour I noticed the gloss was amplified before I even removed the product. It wiped off easily and gave a very soft feel to the paint. I did an ice-water spray wipedown after removal and I've gotta say the beading was crazy. BFWD and Zaino bead great and I love them both, but with the super fine mist that my spray bottle had, even the farthest edges of the mist was beading...it looked like frost! Never seen that with Zaino or BFWD. Cool effect. It also really amped up the metal flake in the paint and brightened it noticeably. Gave more warmth and even a lighter color to this dark metallic paint. Definitely a different look than my go-to sealants. I really liked how it looked on this car.


    Onto the pics...



    Just a little dirty upon arrival. ONR wash took care of that.













    You can start to see the holograms and swirls here.




























    Built up wax residue


















    After looking over the car it was decided that I would do a 1 step correction over the whole car in addition to fixing the heavy marring and holograms on the rear quarter. Here you can see some additional scratches. (sorry the white balance on the camera was set wrong).

    Compounding with my Makita rotary. Working in the Gloss-It Extreme Cut with their grey wool pad and Evolution backing plate.















    Working the Gloss-It Machine Gloss on the PCXP with LC orange pad to clean the panel up from compounding. It was then refined with the PCXP and Gloss-It Evolution Polish with LC black pad.

    Some quick before/after shots on various sections..

    *after* - there was some dust on my lens you can see in the pic, not defects in the paint.

    At this point while the Signature Gloss was curing, client's wife cooked a lovely dinner for me. I had worked up an appetite and it was absolutely delicious!

    Since I finished late at night, I came back a couple days later for a few pics in the sun, this car deserved nothing less.
