Brand new Aventador done as a new car prep, plus about 20hours of correction.

Problems included:

Factory defects
Sand scratches
and the absolute worst of all.... greasy tire shine :iddi:

After heavy compounding.... note the Aventador paint is one of the hardest clear coats I have polished. The microfiber cutting disc and M105 barely made a dent in the pigtailing and sandscratches, wool pads, surbuf etc. all were used to gain the needed level of correction.

50/50 of the hood, again the cloudiness on the left side has yet to be polished, sand scratches on the hood of a Lamborghini of Ferrari is rare, usually these are seen more commonly on the bumpers and lower door panels.

Refining out some wool compounding haze with M105 and detailersdomain uber yellow pad @ 2100rpm

Some photos of the problem areas and more factory defects

Polishing stage

Dealership applied sludge tire dressing

Properly removed and stripped off 100% before new tire dressing (water based) applied

LSP: Wolfs Body wrap later wiped down with CG V7 because its orange and the cars orange so of course it must add POP!

If I had just bought a 500K car and found paint and finish issues, I'd take it back to the dealer to let them correct it.
Dealers sell and service cars, thats it. Whatever detailing they do is on the basic level and often times, well, actually all of the time... results with more harm done than good.

Also most of the damage comes from the factory itself. With newer harder clear coats and newer materials being painted (composite panels, carbon fiber etc) the finishing processes factories use are not always up to the newest standard. What worked to polish a Ferrari 10 years ago doesnt work now... and unfortunately too few people notice to make a big stink about it.

So far I have seen horrible factory finishes from Ferrari, Lamborghini, Aston Martin, Porsche (On GT3 +RS models) and McLaren.
