    Horror Show---Honda Accord V6

    Worked on this Accord, right next to the AMC Javelin.

    Car was left outside for few years under trees. The dirt was thick and hard like a varnish.

    1. Iron-X'ed the paint---The varnish like dirt didn't allow the iron-x to reach the paint!
    2. Took 4 buckets to just wash the darn thing!
    3. Then redid iron-x. Worked.
    4. Washed one more time.
    5. Soapy water/Clay towel. Clayed the car.
    6. Rinse and Dried.
    7. Deep cleaned door jams and hood/trunk channels.

    This took approx 4 hours just in the wash!

    1. Pull inside and did test.
    2. BlackFire One step/Rupes yellow pad and CBeast. Meh....dull haze like surface was still there.
    3. 3D Speed and McKee's Redline polish pad and CBeast. Bingo---It actually cut the surface haze.

    Thanks to CBeast and forced rotation, Was able to get this done in 3 hours! Record for me!

    Total: 7 hours.

    Onto pictures.

    Holy Lord.

    You are a better (more ambitious) man than me, Tommy. Lol

    Great save, my friend.
    It is no coincidence that man's best friend cannot talk.

    White is so rewarding when it goes from yuck to Bling! Great turnaround on that Accord.

    Amazing before and after! To do all that in a day the owner must’ve been thinking they witnessed a miracle
