The next day I compounded for the majority of the day. Here are a few pics throughout this long day.
Hood area 50/50’s
After compounding, going back to spot buff with the wool after revealing the deep RIDS under the swirls and then recoupounding to remove the wool marring and polishing. Gave it a nice IPA wipe down and took it out into the sun to check my work.
Gloss was restored that was not there before.
And the sun showed excellent correction
It was ready for another wash at this time but I was beat and called it a day. Here are a few shots in the garage under different lighting showing correction. Please excuse the dust.
The next night after work it was time for the little things. After rewashing to remove dust and drying I was left with a very nice surface to start sealing and then waxing.
The car was sealed with Black fire wet diamond paint sealant. And let cure over night. In the morning I applied a coat of Pinnacle Souverän.
Here are the afters of my hard work. Enjoy!
