https://youtu.be/uT1Q_fjSI2k latest video. Badly scratched Audi A4. Buffed, polished then waxed. Took 6 hours. Pic is before. The only thing I do in editing is stitch the clips together. How the car looks on video is literally how it looks in real life.

I've done as low as 1500 and as high as 3500. Really depends on the situation. I try to do things on a case by case basis.

Music video of a 2 stage correction. BMW GT. Paint was badly etched due to sun and rain with no maintenance. Spent five and a half hours on the paint.

Wetsanded from 1000 grit then each increment to 3000 grit. Compounded twice, polished twice, waxed.
Mentioned 1 scratch he couldn't get out. ( Probably the sand paper edge )
Ok so this is my goal for the next 5 months.

The funny looking stuff is plain water. What happened is water spots ontop of a ceramic coating. Coating may have failed as well, as nothing came off as easy as it should. Those responsible for the coating application said that they can't remove water spots. ..... Which makes no sense imo..........Anyways..... cleaned it up n fixed water spots.

Ensure that the installer of the coating is capable of maintaining the coating if anything like this should happen guys. Coatings can still get water spots no matter the quality.

Looking for a good car wash in chaguanas.
Done ceramic coats both in and out recently so not that level of detail, just somewhere that uses proper products (I've used carpro from new) and won't leave swirl marks etc on my paint.
Any suggestions?
