Hey,

Sorry I have not posted in a while. Things have been a little hectic the past week.

Anyways so the past couple of days I spent my time at the Porsche dealership on a trade in that was in horrendous condition. It was my first detail at that dealership and the people there were great. Although it was disappointing that someone would treat a car, any car the way the previous owner treated this beauty.

During the inspection stage the roof and rear hatch had particularly low paint reading and was hit with the PC DA with a much less aggresive combination.

Please excuse some of the untouched wheel wells. The car was washed by their "detailer" and sat in the bay. I did a quick ONR on the paintwork and went at it.

Whoops one last thing. I was only to address the paintwork at the request of the client.

Anyways enough of my babbling.

Enjoy,
Nick

Thanks for your comments guys.

Paint reading ie. using a paint gauge to check how much clearcoat there is to work when working with the paintwork.

Paint swirls ahhhhh! :ahh
I've been hearing good things about "Zymol Lehm-Klay" is it worth using?
Im a detailing/paint work novice but i hand washed my car one day and kinda got into it. Im big into Zymol products i don't know if thats a bad thing or not?
I'm hoping i might be able to get a finish like that one day but I'm working on trying to get scratches out. :( I bet it takes years of practice and experimenting to be anywhere near as good, Your work looks amazing! :)
