Full detail: '03 Z06 Vette - 90k miles

This client contacted me as an AVID Corvette fanatic. This is the 37th Vette he's owned!! Title of this thread denotes the year, model, & miles. Needless to say it was a CHALLENGE. Primarily in the paint finish. Honestly, the interior & engine bay were in pretty good condition! It's obvious the previous owner had intentions on keeping this gem clean, but simply had NO CLUE as to how to care for the paint finish. Heavily swirled & marred, I knew I had some hours ahead of me, in paint correction!! Overall, the car looked "dirty gray" (even after being washed) and not even a shimmer of gloss left in it. Here was my plan of attack:

Polishing consisted of the following:

UPON ARRIVAL


DURING


DURING


UPON INSPECTION AFTER WASH








DURING POLISHING




DEBADGED REAR DECKLID


TAIL BEFORE


TAIL AFTER (deeper scratches, too deep to repair)


ENGINE BAY COMPLETE (sorry, no "before" shots)








FINISHED CAR
