    My first Corvette

    Well I finally had a chance to work on my first corvette on SuperBowl Sunday. Hmmm?? The game or the detail. Since I'm not a big football fan I chose the Vette. (probably would have chose the vette anyway)

    I didn't need to wash or clay. I gave it a pass with some "Last Touch" & she was ready for the polish.

    Before

    Here is a shot showing some of the swirls

    Swirls on the hood

    A reflection shot off the hood after 1 pass

    Here are the After shots






    I spent quite a few hours on this one. Some sections required #84 & 8006 and then a pass with the #80 & 8006 with the PC. I followed with #7 & a coat of NXT Wax. I actually wanted to go over it with #26 but I didn't have it with me at the time. I was beat. I had worked on a suburban the day before & my arms were definitely swore the next day. I want a Corvette of my own now.

    Nice work!

    Be sure to give this customer some of your business cards and tell him upfront you're looking for more work, tell him the best form of advertising is word-of-mouth advertising and if he knows anyone with a nice car that they care about that you'll do the same thing that you've done for them and that is you'll treat the car as though it were your very own.
