Well I had a day off today so I figured I would do a much needed detail/mild paint correction on my st185.

Sorry for the bad pictures. iPhones aren't known for great detail pictures ha.
Also it got cloudy and rained right after so I couldn't get good daylight finished shots.
Sun decided to come out for a minute :)

shouldn't be ruined. If you had time to get a good sealer on it, it should be an easy clean up after a rain.

It will be. Just sucks it was clean for about 14 minutes till it stormed about 4 1/2" of water and small hail. Haha

I hear ya. I have a gravel driveway. Its the worst feeling in the world to fully detail a car and put on tire dressing then have to make it out to the pavement.


What process did you use on the paint by the way?

Severe scratches got a 3000 grit wet sand. Clay bar entire car. 3m buffing polish with porter cable da polisher. IPA wipe down. Meguiars glaze, then followed with meguiars synthetic wax, buffed of wax and did a final coat of turtle carnuba spray wax to get a little extra protection/shine.
