Hello, everyone. I was on vacation this week, so I decided it was appropriate to finally polish this car. The victim? A 2004 Infiniti M45, 65k miles. Twilight Blue Pearl, a swirly, hologrammed mess. The previous (only) owner, took terrific care of this vehicle. Unfortunately, the dealer I got it from, gave me the DISO. I've had it for a month now.
Wash: Meguiars car soap, followed with IronX soap.
Correction: M105 with M205 in some areas. Luckily, M105 finished out nicely for the most part on this paint. Used an Orange CCS pad on speed 5 / 6.
I had a lot of trouble starting out. The clear on this car is extremely hard, so I could only work in 10"x10" squares! This part took a whole day. Thanks to everyone for the help, my thread can be found here
. I'd say I got 90-95% correction.
Wax: Surf City Caranuba Wax, with Surf City Wax Detail Spray followed.
Wheels: Cleaned with IronX, protected using Mothers Sealer Glaze, and the tires dressed with the awesome smelling Surf City Tire Shine.
Heres my pictures:
Foam Bath time!
Test spot before. This is essentially what the whole car looked like. I apologize for the lack of before and 50/50 pictures.
Test spot After. M105 on orange pad, speed 5.5 I believe.
This was the worst spot of all. It was so swirled out, and had what looked like finger prints on the paint that wouldn't come out. This is also another example of what the entire car looked like.
This is after I scared those swirls away.
And finally, here are all of my after photos
My favorite one
And that's it! Thanks for looking.
