Cool ts|s Rescues a Black Z28

1995 Z28 with 50k miles on it. The current owner had it "polished" by a guy down the street about 4 months ago (just after winter). He said he picked the car up when it was cloudy and really couldn't tell that it was done right or wrong...until he pulled it out in spring and saw the absurd amount of swirls in the paint. The 'detailer' was kind enough to leave compound in every crevace/emblem/etc. The client had me pick the car up-which was actually to his benefit, because the amount of work was double what I originally figured it would require, and it being @ my house, allowed me to properly restore this black beast to glistening beauty.

Process:
Pressure washed then clay barred with medium and heavy grade clays. Two-step polishing via Flex 3401 using Foam Wool followed by Tangerine pads and Meguires 105/205 compounds. Topped everything with Poorboys Black Hole Glaze and Blackfire Midnight Sun paste wax for a dripping wet finish. Rims were hand polished with P21S polishing soap then with a cordless drill, polishing cone and Optimum Metal Polish.

Before/After













This area ended up getting sanded b/c of those deeper defects. There were a few areas like this, where I didn't know scratches were lurking b/c of the heavy swirling.

Nice save Jaison, I love seeing detail jobs like this using real products. i must say that is the first time I have seen that combo with BHG and BMS.

Man I would have been livid to see that hack job the previous detailer did, I can clearly see the compound in the z28 emblem.


I have to throw this out there if anyone need emblems done Jaison is the guy, super great to work with, I love the work he did for me, funny I didn't know he did detail work.

You're very kind, thank you! GM paint is hard as a rock-you have to know how to attack it to properly correct it. Clearly the other guy was just clueless

Thank you Jeff-i honestly had you in mind through this gig and was looking forward to your response-your work is inspirational and it would be sick if we could team up on a project (meet halfway in montana? LOL!)
