    Hammered 2015 Camaro 1LT big job

    2015 Camaro 1LT Black full detail with polish

    Full materials and tool list at the end

    This car was hammered! Lots of scratches and swirls. This was quite a job to get a mirror shine on this car. I didn't get all the scratches out, but it looks 1000% better and the customer was thrilled!

    I did a full interior detail with carpet shampoo and seat cleaning. After 2 hours of work on the interior, it was time to start the exterior.

    I washed the wheels first. Then I washed the car, followed by claying. I used real clay, and clay pads and blocks depending on the area of the car. I prefer to use a machine to clay but there are areas on a Camaro that the machine won’t fit. After claying, I started with the dual action polisher, an orange pad and Meguiar’s M100 compound. I followed with a white pad and Meguiar’s D166 Ultra Polishing Wax all in one polish. I like this polish because it does not dust.

    Before


    Much better!


    After the polish job, I washed the car again to remove all the dust and applied Gyeon Wet Coat sealant.

    I dressed the tires and sprayed air freshener.



    Light was getting low.

    Fantastic! I love turnarounds like this but the owner needs to be smacked in the head!

    Hammered? Jack hammered is more like it.

    Damn, Kirk. Kick save and a beauty on that one!
    It is no coincidence that man's best friend cannot talk.
