ScheerSpeed Detailed: Acura TL Type-S with Mystery

It's been a while since i've posted a detailing thread! well it's not because i haven't been detailing, rather because the semester just started, and im trying to get a new car and so on... well anyways lets get to buisness.

This car had never seen a full detail. Only waxed once in a while by the corner or mobile guy. hence why it might have had so many swirls! Well the driver side was completely repainted after an accident, as you can see there was no orange peel. this car got a 2 Step polish, which was able to remove 95% of the defects, however the owner did not opt for a full correction, so this was as much as i could do.

hmmm is it just these pics, but does this TL have LESS orange peel than our bmws? kinda sad!

I think the paint/lustre looks nicer on the bmws, but our orange peel is an embarrasment
