Other products were used on the undercarraige, wheels. woodwork and roof and black paint hand polishing..
Start, after body wash.
Heavy surface marring. While paint is still reflective in this example it is obvious that
the level of reflection is right up there with raw sand.
Quick shot underhood. The middle pulley is the supercharger.
Baked on brake dust, soaking in cleaner.
Rim safely cleaned of oxidation and grime.
Heavy marring and medium scratches.
Surface pinholes and medium scratches.
Quick test with a polish. In this shot about 80% were removed in 2 passes.
A second angle.
Taping off all plastic. Notice that lower panels are reflective, just very subdued.
This is also full sun (very foggy off and on throughout day)
Because of the Flex polisher, it isn't as critical to tape off every single ridge on the vehicle. Plastic notwithstanding, other ridges do not get polishing heat and won't be damaged.
It's just how the Flex polisher happens to operate.
Second test area on rear panel. The Yellow pad turned out to be a bit agressive and unnecessary.
Skipping ahead to a nearly completed detail.
All polishing has been completed and turning towards carpet shampooing.
Rear bumper is just as reflective as the side body.
The rear center window isn't conditioned as yet, this is just how far my arm would reach without being in the bed.. In later pics it is complete.
The small crack to the left of the right turn signal is real.
In this shot, the inner exhaust pipes have been deep cleaned too.
