When I got my Mitsu Rio Red Lancer the dealer prep made the car looked almost orange with swirls and rotary holograms on the entire car and said to myself is this what I'am really paying them $300 to prep my car ?

PC #83 with cutting pad and #82 with polishing pad and topped with NXT with finishing pad.

Armed with a little bit of knowledge, and the right tools, most people can turn out higher quality work then people in the business.

Sad but true...

When we take our Honda Pilot into the dealership for service, I wash and detail the car first so it looks like it doesn't need to be washed or detailed, and Lynn tapes a sign in the front window that says "Please don't wash or detail our car".

We also tell the person we're dealing with that we don't want anyone touching the car. So far, doing all three things have kept the dealership detailers from swirling out our new car.

Before we bought the car, we looked at the finishes on the cars in their lot and it scared us! :eek: :eek: :eek:

Good job undoing the "Dealer Installed Swirl Option".
