Detailed a black Camaro ZL1 (Modesta BC-04 - P-01A / Paint Correction)

I detailed a friend's black ZL1. It had a bad case of random scratches, swirls, and water spots. Car was decontaminated, washed, clayed, compounded, polished, jeweled, Modesta primer P-01A, and coated with Modesta BC-04. (Infrared lamp - curing phase)
This should hold up nicely to the rough atmosphere here in Baton Rouge.

Here are some before and after pics. I did not have good sunlight to show the true potential of the finished product.
There will be some nice pics soon to come.
































































Thanks for looking!

Great job.

If I may recommend though, perhaps your friend needs to LEARN HOW TO WASH A DARK COLORED CAR!!!

Good god...

Clay bars work wonders! They should be used at least every two years, depending on the miles you drive.

My Black SS is my daily driver. The US Army posted me in a simulations building that "conveniently" is less than 25 meters from the dirt road exit for an open quarry. Dump trucks were coming and going all the time. Every single day my car looked like a baseball diamond with all that Georgia clay dust. On lite days, I'd California duster it. On heavy days I'd take it to the car wash.

It's just a guarantee, time is against you in a parking environment like that.

I'd tried quitting, but the Army said no.

@ OP

BTW...the car looks great. That's just what my sweetheart needs.

I charge $50/hr for paint correction and a job like this would usually range between $500-$1000 depending on the difficulty, condition, color etc etc.
If its a scratched up black car ($750-$1000)
White or silver could easily get up to $500-$600 for the correction.
Now, he had Modesta BC-04 Nano-Titanium glass coating applied and cured.
That service is an additional $850 which is fairly cheap for that coating.
www.modesta.co
Modesta is a ceramic coating that is not required but it is extremely durable and probably the best coating that money can buy. It is exclusive and for those who want the ultimate protection applied to their car that has been FULLY polished and perfected. It is highly recommended and is super beneficial to those who want a car that will remain easier to maintain and look good for 3 - 10 years. It is 3 microns thick and is 9h in hardness.

So to answer the question, you'd be looking right at around a ball park of $1250-$1600ish with the coating. I have a A/C climate controlled shop and the car is done in a controlled environment. Located in Baton Rouge, LA.

Also, just about 90% of those imperfections came from the stealership that he purchased the car from. It is a fully loaded out ZL1 and it sat at the dealer for almost a year! So, that being said, it got pretty nasty and acquired probably most of the damage during its stay. lol

I never got a PM! Did you send it on FB or on here? I haven't gotten a notification on either, and can't find either.

See the;
"I dont understand why some people garage queen there camaros" threads! That should explain it quite well.

or the;
"why not drive the hell outta of it instead of garaging, its only a camaro" thread

I too do not understand it, or why some buy black in dusty enviroments knowing they dont have a garage
