I don't know what to say but my customer recently bought this beautiful 993 C4S and its in great mechanical shape, interior is in excellent shape, and the body is in great shape for an 11 year old car. However the paint is another story. The paint felt like sandpaper and was filled with tons of fillers, swirls, light scratches, tons of imperfections.

I had the car before the New Year and it will be delivered later today.....Take a look.

Very nice. I've got a friends 993 to detail next week as well. Is paint correction a bit easier with "older" cars since the clear coat isn't as hard?

Unreal. Wondering... how aggressive were you with the polish/ buffing wheel? Will those scratches return when the wax wears away or are they really gone?

Awesome Job.

they will not come back if the owner takes proper care of it.

the paint was corrected but eventually light scratches and swirls will come back.

when the waxes wears away the paint should still look pretty good.
