^^Preciate that homie!! ^^

One of the most rare & sought after Corvettes in the world, came under our care today. 1969 L88 427 Vette. This car appraised for almost twice as much as my house. But it was a bit neglected, and we were called in to ready it for a Concours d'Elegance show in Floriday, just a few weeks from now.......

Going, going.....GONE!

Great work Chase.
So I have been reaching out via email to local detailers claiming to do Paint Correction. They all respond with sure I can do that, and as soon as I ask your list of questions there is no reply. But I will keep searching :)

Well. It's GOOD that you find that out NOW, before taking your car to them, only to pick it up, WORSE than it was before. That's exactly why I wanted you to ask those questions, SAFETY measure. :) Sooooooo many people "Yeah I know how buff." LOL. And 90% of those goons are rookies that have no clue what they're doing. Man, if I had the time to track somebody down for ya, I would!!!

I appreciate the time you have taken. It has been a learning experience just being here and reading. If you don't mind can I start a Thread about a central Florida required specialist?
By the way, your pictures are much nicer then what I have to look at as the sun comes up over southern China through the smog...
"can't upload pictures here to my site, it is blocked by the great wall, any thing like that, facebook, some news, I am surprised this forum works many do not. I can't wait to be home this week.

Here's several shots from a daily driven, 135k miles, 2006 Mustang we did Friday. We didn't have the budget for "perfect" on this one, but with our Light Polish Revival Service & Adam's Polishes....here's what we got!















Booyah baby!!

Lol. Preicate that ^ man, lol. :)

2006 Viper SRT10. New owner, looking to erase the damage inflicted by the original owner. This is a PERFECT EXAMPLE OF how improper care and "Oh I'll just wash it and wax it" is not all it boils down to. This car was CHERRY....but the paint was jacked up (despite the low miles) due to improper care methods from the original owner.

Gonna need to see a full body shot of before and after.
That's a great idea bud! I will give that a shot, the trick is the lighting. Great idea.....!
Chase, what's the best way to get rid of rust proofing from painted areas?
Not sure what you're asking? Like...did a "rust-proofing spray" get overspray onto a regularly painted part? Or....?

Something like that.
The dealership had applied this coating of rust proofing (yellowish in color) on all the edges of the door(s), trunk and hood openings (before I took delivery of the vehicle).

There are some areas where it 'spilled' over, not sure if there is some chemical one can use to dissolve it.

Just wanted to clean it up a bit, is all.

Aaaaahh. Gotcha. Not sure man!! :( As much as I'd like to say solvents or thinners....those can be WORSE for the paint & clearcoat as well.....SHOOT bro....I'm at a loss on that one. I simply wouldn't be able to make a solid recommendation to ya, without causing other harm. :( I'll do a little research when I get time, and let ya know if I find anything.....sorry bud.

Cranked hard on a 2011 Jaguar XJL yesterday. Black metallic, but I didn't discover the metallic, until I uncovered all the damn swirls & scratches!!
REMINDER: All these paint pictures are taken with ZERO filter, and after ONLY polishing with Adam's Paint Correction Polish. This particular car, we used both foam and microfiber pads.

Went mobile first part of this week, and worked on a 2012 Nissan Juke. This car had some damage inflicted by a body shop that did some "courtesy work" to the rest of the car (LOL, wow....). We were called in to fix the damage. Only have a couple before & afters. :(



Then we had a 2011 BMW 335i in our shop, for a 2-stage polish. Adam's Correction Polish doin' work....
