Extensive Paint Correction on an 01 S8 Enjoy

This was a huge undertaking. For 1 the car came to us with amazing gloss and depth, however when we went in to examine the car we found tons of imperfections on this 8 year old S8. The customer wanted this car to come out perfect, the total time to get this car right was 24 man hours. The exterior was washed, clayed, compound, polished, and finally Swissvax Divine was used to bring it out. Take a look and enjoy.

Products Used:
Adam's All Purpose Cleaner in the Cam Spray Foam Canon
Swissvax Paint Rubber and Optimum Instant Detail Spray and Gloss Enhancer for clay lube
Menzerna Power Gloss Compound
Menzerna Super Intensive with the Uber Green Pad
