    McLaren MP4-12C, I loved her as if she were mine!

    This is why I love my job!!

    Lots of new cars come factory fresh with plenty of paint defects such as scratches, wet sanding marks, etc....

    This McLaren wasn't as bad as some other brand new cars (Ferrari) that I have polished but she still was in need for some luv'n!






    After we washed and dried her we masked off any areas we didn't want to get polish on or damage with the polishing process.





    You'd be smiling too if you were getting pampered this good!!!









    Notice my secret weapon in the black shirt. I never leave home without him.






    I put together a new lighting system that worked out killer!

    Don't bother me, I'm in the ZONE!






    We used various kinds of lighting to make sure we polished the paint perfect!





    After all these years polishing paint, perfect paint still gets me all excited! We finished up with Opti-Coat to lock in this beautiful SHINE!






    Lots of hours later we were tired but the hard work was greatly rewarding!!

    Wow!! That McLaren looks really glossy! All thanks to your perfect work!

    btw I too found different lighting techniques that helped me correct better

    I found that directly shining light on the paint hid some really fine micromarring due to over-brightness!

    So I reflect the light off a wall and then inspect the paint in that reflected light which gives me a much more accurate view of the surface!

    Also reduces eye strain while polishing while looking at the reflections in the paint(of the light reflected off of the wall)

    A Rose by any other name... Does Jason make house calls or did you go to his house to polish his McLaren? :D

    Now let's not get carried away! I'm pretty sure I couldn't afford either of 'em.
