Full detail: '03 Z06 Vette - 90k miles


Recommended Posts

This client contacted me as an AVID Corvette fanatic. This is the 37th Vette he's owned!! Title of this thread denotes the year, model, & miles. Needless to say it was a CHALLENGE. Primarily in the paint finish. Honestly, the interior & engine bay were in pretty good condition! It's obvious the previous owner had intentions on keeping this gem clean, but simply had NO CLUE as to how to care for the paint finish. Heavily swirled & marred, I knew I had some hours ahead of me, in paint correction!! Overall, the car looked "dirty gray" (even after being washed) and not even a shimmer of gloss left in it. Here was my plan of attack:

 

 

Polishing consisted of the following:

Great work!

 

BTW, what kind of lighting do you use?

I have a dual fluorescent overhead, 2 single 500W halogens on each side, and 800 lumens LED coming from the front, a movable single 500W Halogen to help me with lower body panels, and a movable dual 500W (so 1000W) halogen setup on a tripod. I looooooove the LED dude!!! In time, I will slowly switch over to full LED:

Husky 5 ft. 800 Lumen Portable Led Work Light-WL800LP-H at The Home Depot

 

Husky 5 ft. 1720 Lumen Led Work Light with Tripod-WL1720LT-H at The Home Depot

 

Husky 5 ft. 2500 Lumen Multi Directional LED Work Light-3PL-TP-DF-24W at The Home Depot

 

But up next is a floor coating......:burnout:

Awesome job man. Any thoughts on how the prototypes performed?

Yes.......I LOOOOOOOOOOOOVE both of them. Definite improvements!!! We're not even quite to beta testing yet. Still kinda in the developmental stages. But I'll tell ya, you're gonna be STOKED. That's about all I can say for now. :glasses:

Chase, that is the shizzle my nizzle... :bow:

 

1. Great work as always!! What kind of time frame for the polishing?

 

2. What is the application process to obtain the G-100 Classified Materials?? :lol:

 

3. How about a leaked photo of the new stuff, you know kind of like how someone would sneak a photo of a new car coming out?? I will not tell anyone at all if you do!!!! :jester::jester::jester::jester:

Lmao Gary!!!! :)

1) I will say the prototype FMP stays "open" a bit longer & I LOVE that. The prototype compound cuts like no other. (all I can say for now)

2) You have to be a sexy man-beast.

3) No photos brutha. That would get me :banned: real quick!!! :willy:

I wish I could get ahold of some prototype compound. I will be forced to use the other guys compound on an upcoming yellow Z06.

 

I'm just excited that this will be coming. Hopefully sooner than later. I love the progression and always moving forward.
