    Default Black C6 saved from the work of another detailer - Bay Area, CA

    This corvette owner sought me out to see if anything could be done to make his car look better. He had had another well known detailer in the bay area work on the car and it "just didn't look right". After about 30 sec it was obvious the previous detailer didn't know how to correctly work the hard corvette clear coat. Heavy DA haze and micro marring were present all over the car along with a few strike-throughs (when people say you can't burn with a DA....that's not exactly true). After 2 days of re-compounding and two more rounds of polishing, this C6 was back to looking sharp again!



    upon arrival
















    lots more DA haze and micromarring








    50/50 shot

    More defects. Also 1/8" 3M Fine Line tape used to protect edge that had be compromised by other detailer, keeping the burn mark from getting larger during correction work.




    After











    All finished and sealed with Blackfire Wet Diamond





























    Thanks for looking!

    Nice job. So with the "DA haze" you speak of, would you attribute that to not using an aggressive enough compound...or just the wrong combination of pad & compound? I've never had my orbital leave a haze or marring of any kind.

    If you are going to put words in my mouth, at least try to be more articulate.

    Its actually from an overly aggressive pad/compound/speed/pressure combo.

    Just out of interest, do you use mainly Rotary or DA for this kind or job. I am by no means a detailer, but more of a "Weekend Warrior" and I use the Rupes Bigfoot 21?

    Amazing work! Car needs more low though. That rear fender gap is crazy high.
