    Operation Back in Black!

    OPERATION BACK IN BLACK
    1999 Ferrari 550 Maranello
    Nero Daytona/Nero
    22K miles
    5.5 liter V12
    485HP/419TQ
    Gated 6 speed manual
    0-60: 4.1 sec
    Top Speed: 199MPH




    Client recently added this to his collection. Car is all original except the wheels on it now, he has the originals. Car has all the paperwork, records and the factory luggage.
    Car was FULL of swirls. I mean covered. Had a few heavier scratches and holograms, and a lot of hazy paint.
    Car looked ok until it was in the sun or under the lights…then it became less black…and more gray. Operation back in black has commenced! I heard AC/DC’s song while correcting this Italian beauty and figured it was a good project name! LOL
    Paint was SOFT. Finicky, but a pleasure to work with. I enjoyed it.
    The ‘details’:
    Gary Dean shampoo.
    McKee’s37 Iron remover.
    Adam’s wheel cleaner.
    Adam’s tire and rubber.
    Hydes serum.
    Adam’s rinse and coat.
    Medium clay mitt.
    Master Blaster to dry.
    Scan Grip lighting.
    DeFelsko PTG.
    Flex 3401.
    Flex pixie.
    Rupes iBrid.
    Griot’s Fast Correcting Cream.
    Griot’s Perfecting Cream.
    Optimum panel wipe.
    22ple Mistico Elemento Forte.
    Carpro PERL tire dressing.
    Pinnacle exhaust cleaner/brightener.
    Auto finesse glass cleaner.
    Metro vacuum.
    Adam’s interior detailer.
    Pinnacle leather cleaner/conditioner.

    Thanks for looking!!

    A detail worthy of that car and it looks new again and worthy of the Ferrari moniker. Great job.

    Nice work as usual ... Scott !!!! I think "Painted Black" by Rolling Stones might also be appropriate.

    Beautiful! Don't you love working on black?

    I know I do... always have. Even back in my painting days, black was my favorite to paint.

    Nothing like a job well done on black paint and follow-up write-up to show one's passion and work ethic.
