    2007 Acura MDX DETAIL (Black)

    Here's a black Acura MDX I worked on starting Saturday taking Sunday off & continuing on Monday. I spent a good number of hours working on this paint with the goal of getting a 100% swirl free shine. I think I got close to 98%. The MDX is a bit bigger to work on than I had first realized.

    Here are some before shots.

    This car had been taken to the drive thru car wash and is apparent on the condition of the paint upon inspection.

    A wool pad with some M105 removed the majority of the swirls

    The swirls were coming out but it was no where near what I was looking for. This is after the wool pad and some #83 on the W-8006 pad.

    I used a 3" pad on the areas that were either too tight for a regular size pad or too small of a defect to use a bigger pad on. For example here there were some stubborn scratches around the tail light lens that I wasn't able to remove with a 6.5" pad.

    It was getting near 10pm and I was ready to call it a day. In this angle there are some random scratches and some haze still visible that I will need to work on.

    I did have a chance to work on a fender before calling it a night just so I can have piece of mind that I was going to be able to remove some of the deeper scratches

    After about 17 hours of polishing I can now call it a day. Uh, Labor Day??? Wait is that when you rest or when you have to work? Well for many of us it is more therapeuatic to detail than it is work. So yeah I enjoyed this detail quite a bit.

    Process:
    - Clay
    - M105 and wool pad on rotory
    - #83 on a 8006 pad via rotory
    - #80 on 8006 pad via rotory
    - #3 on 9006 pad via pc
    - NXT 2.0
    Time: 17.25 hours

    The Acura looks great. The paint looks so good. Smooth and highly reflective. Great work as usual way to go.

    Excellent work! Once again, the 105/83/80 combo works beautifully on black
