Black SS 2 stage paint correction detail

Hey guys, thought I'd post up another one for ya. Haven't posted a lot since I sold the camaro, lots of stuff going on in life right now. But the show must go on right? Well as I've been busy, pics have been stacking up!

Here is a SS I've done twice before. Been caring for this car for about 4 years I think. Been over a year since the last time I saw it though. Since then, its been through a move and lots of mods, and needed some attention. I was happy to make it look as good as it sounds.

Process:

-Foamed with Dawn
-Dawn wash
-Zaino Claybar (Z18)
-ONR as clay lube
-Mothers Chrome Polish on tips
-Gloss-It Signature Tire Gloss
-Menzerna SIP x2
-PCXP LC orange 5.5"
-IPA wipedown
-Blackfire Wet Diamond sealant



Before pics










SWIRLS!!!! Their days are numbered!






























Finished pics!!






















































Thanks for lookin!

Nice work! I'm always impressed by the detailers who frequent Camaro5.

So, you're up around the San Jose area?

Nice job. Those were some nasty swirls.

I've been considering trying ONR for my clay lube. Been using Z7 and water, which is fine, but ONR would be less mess and easier because you just wipe it off. How do you like it?

Thank you. I have a lot of clients in the south bay, so I'm in the San Jose area a lot.
