07 Corvette C6 gets "Adamized"


Recommended Posts

I wanted to share this recent exterior detail project I performed for one of my VIP customers C6. I perform this for him at least bi annually, so here are series of photos showing my son, wife and I bring it to life!

 

It had some minor contaminants and fine hairline scratches on the surfaces...so my customer decided on a 2 step paint correction service.

 

Vehicle was thoroughly pre-rinsed with R/O water, cleaned using Adams Car Wash Shampoo and rinsed with R/O water

 

Wheels treated with Adams Green Wheel Cleaner and that stout wheel lug brush thats awesome

 

Wheel Wells cleaned and degreased with Adams APC

 

Wheel Wells treated with Adams Undercarriage Spray

After my son completed the prep of all the surfaces and it was nice and smooth, I proceeded to use Adams Fine Machine Polish with my PCXP.

Car looks awesome!

But, wouldn't it be bad to detail outside because of dust, pollen, other contaminants that could land on the finish right before you go over them with the PC? Possibly a noob question, but I'd like to know.

I think at the pace they were moving, with his son chasing him in product removal, and his ability to apply the next layer, they would be fine. You are somewhat correct in needing to be aware of those things. But in that climate under those conditions, the chances of something damaging falling on that Vette, within that time frame would be one in 100million. Plus, they were right on top of it, in order to notice it, should the small chance something land on it, they could take care of it immediately.
