Another kind of Italian

I started this car wayyyy back in October, unfortunately things got too damp for me to finish and with moving house, I haven't managed to finish her...one day soon maybe.

I only got the top half of her finished with the correction, no waxes or anything.

I used my PC with a medium cut Sonus pad with Poorboys SSR 2.5. This was perfect for removing the swirls from the soft paint.

A couple of befores.







The pictures aren't great, but I honestly thought she was meant to be a dark grey.

Some afters.






And my favourite




I'll get more pics up when I manage to get her finished

T

P.S. Guess what I got to take home for lunch

Big T,
Detailing certainly seems to have made a difference on the Fezza.
Have you not finished her yet? Looks like it to me.
Truly impressed.

No I haven't managed to finish her, I moved house the following week, changed job the week after and I get my kids every 2nd weekend. It's been sods law, the weather has only been good when I have had the kids and then the owner went on holiday.

Two weeks time will be my next chance......I hope.

Re: Another kind of Italian

They were more like spiders webs, just swirls from poor washing technique.

How deep are your scratches?
