    Cool project.


    Questions


    1: What year is this Ferrari?

    2: Is it single stage?


    Can you post a good picture of the car and maybe the hood?

    I'm going to move this into the Detailing 101 forum group.

    You've posted this in "Off Topic", kind of the wrong place.

    This is what I figured. Single stage paints oxidize a LOT easier and faster than clearcoat paints.

    Seeing what you have for products and knowing that most single stage paints are SOFT or at least softer than most clearcoats and thus prone to micro-marring, I would test out the Meguiar's M210 with FOAM pads and probably avoid the microfiber pads. At least test foam first and if you do use microfiber pads, make sure the fibers are not leaving micro-marring.

    Here's a 1980s Ferrari I detailed that had single stage paint.

    It also had THIN SPOTS from those that buffed it out before me.


    Often times the owners of cars don't even realize they have thin spots because they are so used to looking at the car "big picture", you as a detailer don't look at the car you examine the car and defects stand out like a sore thumb.

    This is why you want to inspect, document and show the owner anything that looks risky before you touch the car.


    Here's the area on the Ferrari with the thin paint...




    Here it is after I taped-off anything I didn't feel like "detailing" afterwards...



    Here I've circled the thin spot and you can see a strip of painter's tape actually over the thin spot.




    And keep in mind, if you find one raised body line that someone else has burned through in the past, there could be other raised body lines that are not burned through yet but the paint is whisper thin and even if you're as careful as humanly possible you could still burn through, even if you're working by hand.




    Finished
