Hello Guys ,


This car was done prior to the Porsche GT3 it's a two year old VW Golf Gti as you will see from the following photos it was in bad need of paint correction .
When I first inspected this car at the owners place I was very surprised how bad the paint finish was. He complained that when he picked it up  from the VW dealer brand new it wasn't prepared properly from day one. It had scratches all over and certain areas like the rear bumper bar had been refinished by a Body Shop most probably due to transit damage !

I took the necessary paint readings and certain areas were within VW tolerance other indicated someone had previously machined polished this car.

This car had a lot of contamination , this client of mine lives very close to the main Road where there are Trams passing by and which leave a lot of rail dust plus all the other pollution which had landed on his paint.
The car felt very rough to touch Iron X did the job of removing Iron particles but it still needed a lot of claying to completely smooth the surface of the paint .
