Take a look
This car was washed over 5 times to remove the glaze off it.
First we used Adam's Car Wash then presoaked again with W99.
Insane amount of glaze..Take a look at all that glaze off gassing after a few washes.
Another pre-soak with W99
After rinse and clay
Measuring the Paint
Before shots of the car prior to paint correction (this is pretty much the complete car, every panel as you will see is this bad after all the glaze was removed, can you say IMPERFECTIONS!)
Polishing the trunk lid
Inspecting the paint with the Fenix
Great shot of the front fender jeweled out and door with PO85RD
Final rinse before the clear film install (some pretty cool shots)
