Paint correction: 2009 Dodge Challenger RT

This client came to me by way of friendship. He's an old friend, chief of police in a nearby city, and he's in our local Mopar club. It had been a couple years since he's had this baby done "right." And since the beginning of Insane Paint, he KNEW where to bring it this time. I'm always VERY grateful when my clients are friends, I don't know why, it just means a lot to me. Anyway, I found the clearcoat on this particular Dodge, to be a bit harder than most I've polished in the past, so it fought me a bit more. Here's how it went down:
Gettin' started on the wheels & undercarriage:



After wash, got right down to surface prep:



Upon inspecting surface......was worse than I thought.....







Swirls everywhere:









Taped off the vinyl, time to get down to business:



Quick 50/50 shot of my progress on the passenger door:



Door fully polished out:



50/50 shot on the trunk lid:



Another angle on the the trunk lid:



This is what you do to your paint when you wash it with a dirty wash pad and use cheap microfiber towels to wipe it down:



Here's after I fully polished it:



Final shots:



It's all "good on the hood" lmao......







In case you're wondering why I had all the coatings on the fender wells. This client was very concerned about them, and they honestly were a good bit "dried & dead" so I wanted the end product to not only be nourished, but a bit glossy as well. The multiple coats I put on them, laid a good foundation for him to tend to, in his maintenance procedures going forward.





A few last reflection shots!















Thanks a ton for reading! If you have any questions! Shoot em over!

Came out great...I cringed yesterday when I saw my neighbor washing their new black Dodge Dart with a nylon bristle brush on the paint...I can't imagine the swirls and scratches they have on the finish already...
