Restoring Jerez Black | Part II
My favorite client to work with is someone that is genuinely excited about seeing their car after I've completed a paint correction. This client in particular had very high hopes for a car he recently purchased that was severely neglected by its previous owner. The entire car had intense swirling and holograms created by another detailer.
This detail let me try out a tool I hobbled together to help facilitate multiple fixed measurement points for my paint depth gauge. Prior to this, I had always measured paint by locations marked with a single laser point. The inherit problem in this practice is that I wouldn't know whether the amount of paint I was removing was uniform across the entire panel measured by the single point. The solution was to somehow split the laser's beam into multiple paths to create a grid. A grid would allow me track the amount of paint removed across an entire panel. The grid was created by gluing a piece of diffraction grating to a laser pointer with a toggle switch.
This is after 56 hours of work spread out over 6 days.
