Let's see the detailed Camaros!

I am not a professional photographer so my pictures are with my galaxy note 3. Maybe I'll get a good camera someday! But in the mean time I'll take pics of my Camaro with my phone! Best part of being a salesman and being friends with detail is getting to detail my car after hours! So let's see the pretty, detailed Camaros!

Fresh Zaino Z5 application last Saturday. This is coat (application 10), and it keeps getting deeper and deeper. I need to get some better micro fiber towels though. I have a few small scratches from dusting the car off. My own fault, but correctable.

I am a retired professional photographer and have a lot of high end digital camera equipment (L lenses, etc.), yet all I ever use any more is my Galaxy Note 3. LOL. Honestly, for web use, it's all you really need. The camera is not what makes the picture... it's the person using it.

My business partner and myself own Mirror Finish Auto Detail, for a paint correction finish on a Camaro we would charge $240.00.
That's for a wash, clay, paint correction polish, paint finishing polish and wax. That also includes interior vacuum and wipe down plus tires dressed.

Thats a great deal with the paint correction. That can be real time consuming.

We both work on the cars so your looking at 6-8 hours. Let me state this is for swirls and light scratches. For a full paint correction your looking at 12-15 hours and that's our show car finish which will set you back $500.00.

If someone got a full paint correct how long does it last for?? I am not too educated on the subject, but I am thinking the paint is corrected and its up to you to not get any more swirls or water spots on it??

You are correct, if you use a 2 bucket system with grit guards. Proper micro fiber towels and a good detail spray for drying it will hold up for a long while. Once it's fully corrected if you take care of it our diamond package (wash, clay, minor paint correction, finishing polish, wax )
once a year will keep it looking good!!!!!

I have ordered the Opticoat Gloss and the Autoscrubber and a few other items, but I already spent 6 hours prepping, polishing, and applying Klasse AIO and sealant on the mustang. I may use Opticoat on the wife's car as a test bed when it cools off a bit, but I'm not stripping off all the work I did on the Mustang for a while. lol. I plan on adding a third coat of the Klasse sealant this weekend if I don't get rained out.

I'm thinking I'll do just her hood at first to see how it comes out and holds up. Her car needs so much prep that it's going to have to be applied panel by panel as time permits.

I didn't have the patience to do it, so I paid somebody else to do all the work. I'll do it myself next time...way too expensive

I don't blame you. Applying the Optinum Coat is twice as complicated as the Klasse. But lasts up to 2 years and is like applying an extra clear-coat layer.
