I got a call from a customer on the S2KI boards and this is the car that showed up.
Due to the heatwave out here I had to work on it 3 nights in a row. The paint was quite bad.
Swirls, Light scratches, paint imperfections/acid rain etching (which was not fully removed)
This was quite a challenge. BTW extremely nice husband and wife and both were car enthusiasts, that's always a plus.

Awesome job as always

Love the 50:50 shot - you should use that to advertise.
