Default So...you think you have swirls? TSX comes back to reality!

Hey everyone. As you guys know, busy busy busy so I am trying to catch up with photos and posting a few corrections. I had to post this vehicle right away and you can see why. This TSX was destroyed, in the direct sunlight it looked awful. Hope you guys enjoy!

very good job. yellow pad was needed for sure. Goin to car washes with brushes will cause swirls like that. or drying it with a beach towel or somethin.

It actually doesn't take that long to do this. Without any wetsanding involved all you need is decent skill with a buffer and like an hour. You can pick up decent buffers on ebay for pretty cheap. Practice on buffing something that you can mess around on, and then hit your car and make the paint more glossy.

What?

It takes anywhere from a few hours to 20+ hours. Not possible in an hour, correction takes time.
