Subaru black is fun...and Perfect Finish is a wonderful polish.

Looks great! I agree, perfect finish is worth its weight in gold, utterly phenomenal at what it can correct without diminishing the gloss.

Looking good. Do you have prior experience with Optimum Opti-Lens? How long does that stuff last and is it crystal clear?

Limited, I heard about it years ago and always wanted to try it.

Optimum doesn't explicitly state how long the product lasts for, but I've had my headlights coated for close to 6 months and they still look brand new.

I offer a warranty on any corrected + coated headlights.

Wow, great job with the paint correction! It looks amazing. First time I've actually seen the black with gold flakes, it looks really nice.

I'm going to be doing some paint correction on my black 2017 STi because there's a bunch of dealer installed swirls. I hope that mine comes out as nice as yours did.

Thank you sir, it was only released in 04.

Oof! Hopefully they're mild and can be removed with a light polish.

I have a 2005 Java Black Pearl WRX and just ordered some touch up paint... Thinking about detailing mine. Black is such a pain!

How much does a comprehensive correction like this typically cost? I'm sure your price is better than most because you genuinely enjoy it, but the "norm"?

If it's 05 then it should be Obsidian Black Pearl, I would verify with your paint code before applying the touch up.


Black is a pain in the butt to take care of, I vowed never to own one again after my TSX

Corrected and coated it - kept it looking fresh till I sold it

Coating the car can make the maintenance that much easier.

Excellent job. I still have my 04 sti and it REALLY needs this sort of attention!!!! Even with less than 50k on her, the roof has what looks like water spots. I’m going to pull it out next spring and attempt correcting the paint.
