    Cuastomer brought me his Blue Velvet Metallic 5th gen for ceramic coating and an interior detail. It was in great shape. The swirling was not too bad at all.





    The picture shows halogen bulbs vs a Flex Swirl Finder light. Next to the sun, I believe halogen bulbs are the best at showing up swirls.








    After polishing:




















    Blue Velvet Mirror!

    Nice work! The car looks great, but for one thing, you buffed it so well you changed it from a 2013 to a 2014/15 body style ... (The front end and tail lights are a dead giveaway LOL)

    Nice work but why compound it if the swirls were not that bad? Gotta conserve that clear coat.

    I only used the compound on scratches that were in a few places.

    Hahaha I didn’t look at the mfg tag, I just guessed. I know it is a 5th gen Camaro, because I have a 6th gen.

    Nice work Kirk! That paint is really popping now--the metallic is blowing up! Well done! (I'll look for this on IG too!)
