this detail was to remove the swirls & most of the deep scratches in 2 steps. the Evo 8 MR is going in for major surgery in the winter so this is just to get through the rest of the summer & the fall.
the sides & hood were in great shape. the roof & trunk were the only areas that needed a little extra love. i decided to put the car under the halogens & work the paint out for a little bit more time than if i was just working under the shop fluorescents. i made sure all the swirls were removed with just a few deep scratches here & there that remain. you really cant see them because of the color & the new glow the paint has now.
