Ferrari 360 Correction

Hey guys wanted to throw this recent detail I did. Might be able to start from here and answer alot of questions for guys using this detail as a jumping off point. Anyways back to this beauty, as I spoke with the owner I was alerted to the car being Giallo Modena, a beautiful proper yellow for the 360's, and in the end it did not look like a 14 year old cavallino. Onto the pictures and questions welcome!

As I arrived


Bug splattered front end



Paint imperfections pre wash/decon










Previous "detailer" left lots of compound/wax in every crevice





Deep in cowl




Not best picture but carbon fiber pieces were quite cloudy


CF air-boxes


Taped up





Measurements were taken over entire car, healthy looks


Another gift from the other "detailer", nice rotary hit on plastic, melting it and pulling some off even






50/50, forgot infratech so look a little off




The best gift of all, DEEP scratches on passenger side behind vent all the way back to wheel well. Had to wet sand entire side.






Wrap removed incorrectly from previous owner, leaving glue in every crack they folded over


Rear CF ducktail corrected


All finished up




Engine Bay buttoned up











Reflections










Thanks for looking guys!

Just some advice when posting pics, the default for IMG from photo bucket adds a URL link to the image in your photobucket library.

Simply edit the link and just leave the [img ] your link [/IMG ]

Then it just posts the pics when you click on them.

Final polish was carried out with the following:

lake country black pad and Menzerna 85RD, of also known as SF4500.

Majority of compounding taken out with various microfiber cutting disks and Menz FG400 or in some places Megs 101.

Wow . . . was the owner nice? Owning a Ferrari has always been a dream (albeit one out of reach) what did you think of the car after being up close and personal with it? Great work!

The owner is a friend and a great guy, down to earth and very humble. Nothing is out of reach man, you wouldnt believe some of the cars I have done and the work they have done to get to them, it has let me feel to open to every and all chances that come my way to somehow own one of these someday.

Being up close with this beauty it really is a treat every time, especially this one with all of its aftermarket parts. Including a lot of carbon fiber everywhere, ride dampeners, and straight pipes with electric cutouts, oh and also full race headers , yeah she screams like an F1 car. But to be honest I have become somewhat numb to the shear presence of them as before I went off on my own I worked at our local Ferrari dealership, so I driven almost every model since the mid 80's. For me it comes from the love of the owners and their passion as I learn more about their car as I talk to them. Thats what really brings them to life to me, and that look after I finish, I see the look that I imagine they had when they first saw a Ferrari as a child. When properly detailed the lines on these Ferrari's come to life, many places you really never saw before, I sat back for 20 minutes just staring at this after I finished in the sun, the finished pictures show how you can catch 3 or more reflections in a single picture, beautiful machines. Thanks again man!
