Fire extinguisher gets into a fight with a Subaru Forester

Fire Extinguisher and Subaru Forester gone wrong - we fix it.

Got a call one morning from a new customer asking if we were able to do anything to fix her car which was vandalized. Always up for a challenge I said sure what happened. She said her car was vandalized with a fire extinguisher. I said wow that's not good. If you can text me some of the photos showing the damage I can assess it from there......what I didn't expect was how bad it would be, (see below) that being said 30 plus hours later we were able to get it back to a health condition, safe for her and her family to drive in again.

Interior Before
These were the photos we received for the quote, the parking lot were the car wash stored - did as much as they could to remove the loose easy to get to residue, we were hired to do the rest.

Exterior Before

Take a look at this 50/50 shot believe it or not that was the paint after it wash washed/clayed and cleaned up of all the dust from the extinguisher - damaged definitely done. The left side cleaned up with Sonax Paint Cleaner with the Rupes Bigfoot LHR15ES and Uber Green Pad.
Impressed we were - Fun Fact: Did you know the paint cleaner has components of Sonax 3/6 in it? That paint was cleaned up and drastically improved but remember this was not a paint correction detail.

Sonax Plastic Trim Restorer used on the dull/aged/oxidized plastics and trim on the Forester. - Plastics were cleaned with Sonax Multistar prior to dressing.
