Detail addict-Platnium Addict, 2009 Camaro

2009 Chevy Camaro
This car is only about 1.5 months old. The dealership did a very hacked job on it and filled EVERYTHING. It looked nice, but once we stripped everything, it was halogram EVERYWHERE. Although it;s new, it has some very sever RDS and minor swirl marks. The entire process took about 20 hours or so...

Sorry, it was very cloudy so no good pictures of before outside.

We start with the wheels and tires

Off with a hand brush to get the spokes

Then with ACE PowerStick to get to the inside of the wheels

Pressure wash off everything

Including the wheel wells

Then we start with the body to get the ‘big dirt’ off the car…

Hit the tires again as we rinse the body

Then off to our Camspray Foamer

You can never clean the wheels/tires enough!

Then off to two buckets hand wash with fresh MF

Then glide the water off of the car

Rinse down the wheels of course

Look at this! Brand new car! This is from just the hood too!

Air dry all the gaps and surfaces as much as we can

After air dry, we use Waffle MF to blot dry

Look closely, lot of RDS! We then took a paint meter to check the thickness and it was about ~145-185 micron all around. Plenty of paints on this car for correction!

and swirl marks

Still trying to perfect close up shots… But yeah, lot of swirls… Here are bunch of 50/50

Some indoor finishing shots

The sun finally came out the next day for us to take some outside pictures!
