process , tools , products ....?
also u don`t get off 2 microns from the panel , with wool or wetsand maybe, but i didn`t see that in your image.
paint gauge is just to give u an idea how the panel paint is ( normal, thin , respray , bodywork)
u are a pro , i just comment on the pictures u post!

What ever they paid you was not enough! Looks amazing

I cannot believe that someone can have a car like that and not take care of it

Great results. Also curious to know what you used as far as compound(s), LSP ? I'm looking to get another LSP wax (use Petes 53 now but thinking about Pinnacle Souv. or Dodo supernatural ?...thoughts?)

You most definitely can remove 2 microns with polish, I don't know where you got that idea.

How's the best way to ask for pricing on basic detail? You can remove fine scratches from wheels too (clearcoated polished alloy)?

It's not that anyone here is ignoring you, it's that we're not allowed to give out our contact info. With that said, I don't think you're prohibited from giving out your own. Mods can correct me if I'm wrong.

Wanted to bump this so I can address this issue I've been contacted about fairly frequently. We're sponsors now, so if you need to inquiry about pricing for a detail, you can either reply to our threads, PM us, or visit our web site.
