    2018 Ford Mustang GT - A Miracle Detailing - CQuartz Professional

    2018 Ford Mustang GT - A Miracle Detailing - CQuartz Professional

    Interesting story on this car...
    The previous owner only had it 1 year and put 30,000 miles on it.
    Tons of swirls marks, Hologram - buffer trails, scratches, etc. It was a mess.

    The new owner brought it to me to see if I could "fix" it.
    If not, he was planning on doing a complete 5-10 thousand dollar paint job.
    I did a small test spot on the trunk and lo and behold the paint was metallic!

    Now on to the technical...

    Machines:
    My weapons of choice are the Rupes Mark II 21 Bigfoot 5"BP and iBrid Nano

    Compounds/Polishes:
    Recently I've been using Megs M110 and M210 for correction and polishing.

    In this case, M110 with microfiber pads barely made a dent in correction.
    I switched to M101 and the paint now corrected easily with minimal issues.

    M101 did have a little dusting and left a slight micro-marring fog. M110 did not.
    Even then, M101 fogging easily cleared up with a quick 2-step polishing process.

    In short, M101 for correction and M210 with a 5" Rupes Yellow pad for polishing.

    I followed M210 with Scholl's S30 on a Carpro Gloss pad for a little extra brilliance.
    Was the S30 needed? Probably not, it was a "feel good" to achive the best results.

    Convertible top:
    completely masked off with a plastic drop cloth during the compounding/polishing.
    Ragg Topp Fabric Cleaner with a flat brush and aerosol spray protectant to seal.

    Tires:
    Coated with OBSSSSD Matte Tire Dressing - for a nice, clean, dark subtle look.

    Wheels:
    Iron-X, followed with Iron-X snow soap & wheel brushes in a Detailing Outlaws bucket.

    Engine Bay:
    Cleaned with Multi-X APC followed with Sonus Trim and Motor Kote
    This is a favorite of mine. No greasy shine. Just a factory fresh matte finish.

    LSP:
    Cleaned paint with Eraser and applied two thick coats of Cquartz Professional.

    Now on to the pictures...

    Are you kidding? M101 and M210 made it happen!

    I really like M110 and M210. They are a huge improvement over M105 and M205!
    I was concerned that M101 may be discontinued due to the release of M110.
    In this case, M101 made all the difference in accomplishing correction on this paint.

    I was happy to hear the M101 is not going to be discontinued. It is a favorite of mine.
    M101 is an outstanding product and a needed product in my detailing arsenal.

    For the though to correct (abused) finishes IMHO M101 cuts better than M110.
    The more I use M210 the more I really like the glossy finish it leaves.

    Thank you! That is very kind.
    Needless to say, he thought, I walked on water it turned out so nice.

    Excellent work! But I wonder how the car was mechanically maintained, if it was that flawed cosmetically??

    The new owner had many documents and service records. It was the surface/finish that had bad "wash abuse". He's a happy camper now!
