    Default Paint enhancement on Nambikers blue vec

    Nam came to mine today to have his car done. The weather did not play ball at all today and caused a few issue's that could have made life a little easier but I managed to work round the weather to get his car done.

    I washed, clayed and rinsed the car in the rain and then put the Gazebo up to dry off and assess the paintwork, however the gazebo was only big enough to fit half the car in, so I had to start with the front first. Once I got it under the gazebo and dried it off, it was clear that Nam's car was not maintained very well before he got it. The paintwork was covered in swirls on every panel and was looking very dull with hardly any clarity in the reflection. This is what every single panel looked like



    So I got out the DA and used PF2500 on a white hex pad, each panel needed four passes at full speed and another 3-4 to finish the product down. The day started at 9am and finished a little after 5pm but I am pleased with the result, the reflection and depth of colour the car has now is really nice.







    Nam has some more photo's that he may add to this.

    Cheers Khalid. The rain held up for the last few hours which was nice as I could wipe it all down and dry off again before waxing and adding the QD.
