    Lucky! Those exotics may just be one-offs. With their custom colors and even some manufactures building in small numbers, it may be difficult to track vs. mass produced makes and models. Any detailers who touch these types treat them with care, I'm sure.

    Either way, thanks for sharing and adding to the list.

    Re: Paint Hardness Spreadsheet

    OP----- Add in Maserati

    Hard CC not found a soft or medium one yet.

    Compound------ Flex 3401 (5-6 setting), Meg's Microfiber cutting, Meg D300, Hydro Tech Blue, D300( will leave micro marring which will be taken out with final polish.

    Polish----- Flex 3401 (3-4 setting) , Hydro Tech Orange, Rupes Diamond, or SF4000, 4500 ( takes out all micro marring from compounding stage, but typically Maserati Paint has bubbles in it from chemicals seeping out over time through the CC, which won't come out ever. (Can use Megs Microfiber Finishing pads, but will leave a tad bit of marring, if doing a Jewel stage then go for this pad, its quicker and helps remove a little extra) Megs Ultimate works well if used in conjunction with these others.

    Jeweling---- Flex 3401 (2 setting), Black LC pad no cut at all, with Rupes Diamond

    Maserati Front bumpers are typically best to have removed, and repainted due to the small curves, and small areas around the vents. (If done, remember Maserati Paint codes need to be tweaked due to plastic parts for Black (Nero) and the physical car panels vary slightly and need to match) Rear bumper can be polished normal.
