Detailer's Domain: Black Z06 and Swissvax Mystery

This car is a beast, it looks so nice in person, love it. In black even better!

I was called into do some paint correction on this beast. Exterior only job.

Needless to say 3800 miles and tons of swirls and light scratches. We were also doing all this to get it ready for clear film install from Nelson /Clear Image in NJ.

Products used:
Adam's Car Wash
P21S Auto Wash
P21S Wheel Cleaner Gel
Adam's Detail Spray
Adam's VRT
Adam's Undercarriage Spray
Adam's Metal Polish 1 and 2
Einszett Glas Polish
UBAR Clay bar from Detailer's Domain
Menzerna Top Inspection
Menzerna Super Intensive Polish
Menzerna PO85RD
Swissvax Cleaner Fluild
Swissvax Mystery

Tools:
3m Blue Tape
3m Sun Gun
Makita 9227 Hi Speed Rotary
LC CCS Green Pad 5.5 (used 4 pads)
LC CCS Blue Pad 5.5 (used 4 pads)
LC CCS Red Pad 5.5 (used 1 pad)
Tons of Microfiber Towels
Detailer's Domain Wool Mitt

Crew:
Me
Alvin Ago

Total time 9 hours

Note: Pictures were not great. Light was an issue.

Okay so here are the pics:

Before:









P21S in action, wheel clean up:


Agitating dirt with a Boar's Hair Brush/P21S Gel on the wheel and P21S Autowash in the wheel wells and on the tires:



Alvin wiping the excess water and doing a once over with Adam's Detail Spray:


After shot of the front wheel:


Exhaust tips before:



Exhaust tips after hitting them up with Adam's Metal Polish 1 and 2 (used a microfiber applicator pad and a microfiber towel to buff)



After the wash and clay we were left with a clean surface take a look at the imperfections (sorry lighting was very poor)





Unfortunately this was our best 50/50 shot (this should be after Menzerna Super Intensive Polish followed by Menzerna Top Inspection wipe down/finished with Menzerna PO85rd and then once again wiped down with Menzerna Top Inspection)


Some action shots:

Me on the Makita:


Alvin making sure all is good:


And of course Swissvax Mystery applied and waiting for removal:


Alvin taking a pic of himself...(The Mystery was still on the door)


After shots in all different light with flash/without flash/with halogens...















I thinks these are the best shots. Alvin took this with his Canon SLR (not sure if its a D20 or D30)
