    2011 Toyota 4Runner Black

    This is what i had to start with. Customer wanted it prepped for sale. Only has 25,000 miles.



    Here is the roof. You can see how lacking the paint care was.



    A 50/50 shot. Tried everything and this was the best I could do with the issue of micro-marring and still got about 90% correction. I used a green LC 5.5" pad with M205 on PC @ 4.5. Wanted to try ColorX but didn't have any handy.



    Then followed up with Liquid GC wax. Very happy with the outcome! Here is a roof shot, side closeup and overall. Enjoy.

    Looks like you have these images sitting in your DropBox account and they won't link here. You might want to try uploading them to our gallery and posting from there instead.

    Well I'm sure you could have got all of it out if you were paid to. But the job you did was awesome!!!

We can go out for a drive without her makeup and she looks fine. If I want to take the black one out, it is three or four hours in the "bathroom" to get ready.
