Default First TCG detail as NLD

Das's Mustang was not quite minty enough for his liking so he had me come and do a Level 2 Detail and Raggtop on the convert top. Of course it was a balmy 38 degrees when I arrived at 9am and warmed up to a damp 44 or so at the peak of the afternoon. Just wonderful to be outside spraying water. ahaha I didn't take nearly as many pics as I wanted to, but got some decent before and after polishing a few panels.

I used a white foam polishing pad on my new Flex with some 3D AAT Finishing Polish. I have been very impressed with this combo's ability to remove all light scratches and leaves zero marring or swirls. Something that used to take me 2 high speed steps is now one step and I don't have to tenderly caress the paint on darker colors.

Next-Level Detailing

Whatcha think?

Fender before:


Fender after:

One tiny scratch left in the center, I know, but wasn't doing a compound buff on this. Level 3 would have gotten that one.

Hood before:


Hood after:


And yes, this is a reflection. Can you tell where the reflection stops and the actual direct pic of the shelves begins?

So Fresh, So Clean:



Thank you again Kevin, despite the nice weather I legit opted to just let it sit in the garage instead of driving it because its so clean.

I tired HD Uno and the HD Polish. I wasn't impressed with the UNO and at times it was difficult to remove.

The HD Polish was good though

Yeah the AAT is their new stuff. I tried the HD a long time ago and wasn't blown away. This new stuff has been kicking ass. Probably going to order the AAT compound soon and see how it plays with a hybrid wool pad on the FLEX for those deeper scratches.
