Envious Detailing: Yellow Lamborghini superleggera
Two Step for full correction
This client responded to by request for a car needed for a magazine photoshoot spread. We set the date, the original model canceled last minute, and a new date was set. New date couldn’t work with the clients schedule, so we opted to use this car for another reason (more to come later on that).
Once the client arrived, I could see that there was just a slight amount of swirling that needed to be corrected and bring out the gloss that be shown on a car of this caliber. Obviously a year of proper wash maintenance was doing a good job, but the car lacked any real deep gloss. The car was shiny, but not glossy to my eyes. Going around the car, I spotted things that I noticed needed to be addressed…dirty wheels (HRE), dry looking carbon fiber, rough to the touch paint, smudged clear bra, etc. From front to back, the whole car needed to be addressed
Total process was about 16 hours for a two step process over the whole car.
Washed twice throughout
Clayed to remove bonded contaminants
Lightly compounded, with some areas getting spot corrected
Polish round to remove haze and restore gloss
Paintwork cleanser to prep for sealant wax application
Sealant wax application
Interior cleaning and conditioning with damp towels
Light interior polishing on doors, by hand on center console
Waxed interior doors and center console
Vacuumed and dusted interior
Wheels dressed, windows cleaned

Afters all said and done
HERE IS WHAT I NEED FROM THE AUDIENCE READING/LOOKING
Pick the best after picture you would want on the wall of your house, on your desk, etc. What is the picture (from those provided) that you would want printed? I am not a pro photographer, but rather a pro detailer/paint reconditioner, so keep that in mind!

Excellent job with the paint correction, Eric... my Superleggera came out great! You really breathed some new life into her - it looks better than when I got her!
I'm sure glad that I opted for the lifetime free mobile car wash package.. she needs another wash pronto!
