Hi Narv & Ahmet
well what can i say guys you done a fanstatic job on the car
it looks better than the old mans now
see you both at the weekend
Looking forward to it Raffa!
Looking very nice Narv! you've done a good job there guys..
Loving the wheels you've got on the car now aswell mate!
that looks sick!
What a fantastic finish, well done lads!
Very nice. Seeing photos like this remind me that I really need to crack on with the 8. Due to it's size, I'm trying to do one panel thoroughly every time I wash it. So far I've only managed the bootlid!
*curses hard BMW paintwork*
Also the fact that the 8's naturally sit low means that the roof is much easier access than the majority of cars
Also, I've found that if I try to do it all at once I end up rushing and never quite getting the finish I want.
Also, my paint seems so hard that even with a coarse pad and SSR-3, I still have to really work at some of the deeper swirl marks. Having said that, I'm still very much in the learning phase so every time I use the polisher the results seem to improve.
Also not a dig mate, but it will be your technique letting you down (all of our paints are a similar hardness) as that is a heavy combination just for swirl removal. What machine are you using? And it sounds like your not working it long enough on each stage so the polish isnt breaking down enough to do its job...
Also one thing I tell people to take note of when starting out as a detailer, remember that detailing is improving what you've got to start with, not a respray...
Also I wouldn't focus on areas too too much as you'll have no paint left to play with in the future if it picks up a few light marks... Its better to get a 90% correction and have enough paint for another correction in the future than to have a 95% correction with barely any paint left
