    Hammered A3

    This car spent most of its life in Germany before being brought over. A body shop resprayed the front and rear bumpers 2 years ago and then let an inexperienced person use an rotary. There were buffer trails all over this car and signs of clear coat failure in a few spots. Customer hadn’t even noticed the trails until I pointed them out in the direct sun light, he was pretty embarrassed because he’d taken it to so many car shows and never knew to look. With the clear coat failure beginning I knew I had to be careful and not go to heavy, got 80% of the scratches out but I just didn’t feel confident using a heavy cut with a MF pad.

    Used my Griots 21 and Griots G8 with rupes yellow wool 5” pads paired with CarPro Fixer and followed with a white uroshine polishing pad with CarPro essence topped with 2 coats of Cquartz UK.

    Wow, doesn't even look like the same color anymore. I bet the owner was very happy. Great job saving it.

    You should have done him a favor and removed the black film from the taillights, it looks terrible.

    LOL I thought the same thing at first, apparently they're quite rare taillights.
