2001 Aston Martin Vantage. In excellent condition prior to this detail.
Unfortunately, most of this car had been repainted by the dealer (apparently),
since it didn't show up on CarFax. The paint has now shrunk back and closer inspection reveals sanding scratches from paint preparation. Even still, whoever painted this car matched the Pentland Green very well, as 2 panels on the car were original.
The following photos are the owner's detail work (after initial washing). Quite Impressive.

readying for final Menzerna Nano polishing.
Cyclo Menzerna Nano polishing.
Machine waxed, then hand waxed with 5050 to finish.
Gauging the reflections is the only way to discern how finely polished this AM is now.
Truthfully, I was a bit awestruck by this car at the outset. Hearing an AM V12 start up is inspiring.
The photos do not show the true condition of the paintjob. The hood, front bumper, Driver's side panels, rear hatch and bumper and Passenger's fender are repainted approx. 5 years ago. Other than the paint shrinkage, the quality of the paintjob is quite high.
It was beautiful at this start, it is magnificent now.
