    2005 Corvette - A Miracle Detailing - CQuartz Professional

    The client just purchased this car with just a little over 10k on the ODO.
    It was covered in swirls marks!!! It looked like it was attacked by Spiderman.

    It had VERY hard paint! I tried many different combinations of products and pads.
    Due to the nature of the beast, it went inch by inch slow and took a lot of time.
    Normal pads/products did not even make a dent. Warning: Do not try this at home.

    The winning combo...
    Correction: Rupes 21 - M101/M105 combined on LC Purple Thin Foamed Wool Pads
    Polishing: Rupes 15 - Rupes 5" Yellow Polishing Foam Pads with Meguiars M210

    Dlux on Trim / Fly-By-Forte on glass / Paint coated with CQuartz Professional
    Convertible Top / RaggTopp Fabric Convertible Top Cleaner & Aerosol Protectant

    Before and After -

    The End


    Thanks for looking...

    Thank you Nick that is very kind. BTW - FYI I'm still a big fan of M101!

    BTW - I'm lovin' the new M110 and M210 twins. They make a great combo!

    This paint was VERY hard and "It looked like it was attacked by Spiderman".
    I guess I could have tried M110 with Megs MF Xtra Cut microfiber discs but
    after trying a bunch of different combinations I stopped when I ran across
    something that finally worked. (I'd already made lots of test pads to wash).

    The M105/M101 made the paint kinda foggy (but it is was swirl corrected).
    M210 with a polishing pad cleared it right up and made it bright and glossy!

    Short Version: After trying many products, Megs products made it happen!

    BTW - I took your suggestion and although I'm not a big 50/50 guy I did a short 50/50 vid.
    Also, per your suggestion I put part of the 50/50 clip in the full vid (it's still under 60 secs).

    NOTE: The swirls show up better if you use 1080p

    Your thoughts?

    I noticed that you followed Nick's 50/50 suggestion.
    If I was the Vette's owner..... That would have really impressed me and transferred info on how much improvement was accomplished.
    Good jobs Merlin. On video and on the Vette.

    Yepper, it's hard to pack all that info in a <60-second video.

    Yes, I do believe the client was impressed with the finished result.
    When I took this car I saw swirl marks but I didn't expect the paint to be GM rock hard!
    IMHO this turned out somewhere between "Better than Showroom New" and "Show Car".

    * It's impressive to have a 2005 C6 Corvette with 10k that looks "Better than Showroom New".

    Nick also made a few other suggestions for my videos. I'll try to insert them in future videos.
    Thank you!!! I feel it turned out really sweet. BTW - The Meguiars M210 gave me great results.
