Sorry its been awhile since I have posted up a write up (at least for me) its been a bit hectic at the warehouse.

Believe it or not another new car fix. Its really unfortunately. Diagnosis.... an abundance of holograms, swirls, cut marks, wash marks.
Solution below:

What was done -

- Wheels were prepped with Sonax Wheel Cleaner and cleaned up with various brushes
- Tires were spritzed down with P21S Total Autowash and washed down
- Wheel wells were spritzed down with P21S Total Autowash
- Wash down and rinsed
- Door jambs were cleaned up
- Clayed
- Dried
- Paint inspected and measured
- Wheel Wells were cleaned and dressed
- Tires dressed
- Masking
- 2 Step Paint correction (Menzerna Super Intensive Polish with an Uber Green and Menzerna PO85RD with an Uber Blue)
- Inspection with Fenix, 3m Sun Gun, Infratech, and natural sunlight
- Last Step - Menzerna Power Lock
- Rubber and Plastics Treated
- Exterior windows and mirrors cleaned and sealed
- Exhaust tips cleaned
- Engine Cleaned up and dressed

Great work & great recovery. ;) Any dealer should be ashamed to deliver such a car in that condition, but it happens every day. :(

Car looks amazing! I have the exact same color combo and I swear I will never get another black car again. Apparently Nissan's paint on the GT-R's and possibly all there other vehicles is super soft. I pamper mine the best I can and am always trying new products but I swear if you breath on these cars they scratch. What does a job like this run in terms of time and cost? How long does the paint correction effects last before it needs to be redone? Do you know of anyone in southeastern Virginia that does this level of work?
