Spring time in the Southeast USA is no picnic for outdoor detailer (which I was today as I was performing this job in my driveway). Pollen was falling from the trees so fast that with the slightest breeze, the car was instantly covered in that terrible green pollen dust. I kept an
ONR (Optimum No Rinse) bucket with me throughout the entire job so I could re-wash each
panel before polishing.
SYSTEM ONE Licorice Black nano dressing was used for all the plastic and rubber surfaces.
I polished the car using SYSTEM ONE X3 polish and the SYSTEM ONE 8" Combo pad from a Pro Kit. This made quick work of the swirls and left a brilliant finish.
I started by sanding the lenses with 1000 grit paper first followed by 2000 grit. I used the ONR wash water as lube which worked great.
They were polished using SYSTEM ONE X3 polish and the wool side of the SYSTEM ONE Combo pad.
The paint defects:
More pictures to come from a photoshoot that will show the finish in better light.
