This vehicle had been painted in a not-so-professional manner. (I'm being polite). My job on this gorgeous Classic was to correct the paint as much as possible to ready it for an auction.
Orange Peel is a term used to describe the surface of the paint. Rather than being smooth and reflective, see how it is bumpy and resembles the surface of an orange? Hence the term Orange Peel. I used a combination of some special compounding pads designed to reduce the appearance of the Orange Peel as well as wet sanding the paint as well. The full write up to the job can be found here:
The end result came out looking like this:
Yes, I do bikes! This 2006 Heritage Softail was booked to have the paint improved and the chrome protected. The chrome on this bike was exquisite and I was delighted to see how the CQuartz Finest made it glow. Please check out the write up and the pics below:
Check out the pic to the left and observe the scratches visible around the light as well as the water spots that had etched deeply into the clear coat layer of paint. This car took some considerable effort to turn around. Its headlights had also been damaged by the dealer trying to "fix" them. I was able to repair the lenses completely. Check out the writeup of the work that went into this restoration:
Behold Black Beauty!
This car was brought to me for a complete, wheels-off, paint perfection detail followed by my best coating, namely CQuartz Finest. Check out the writeup for the 20+ hours that went into making this car just ROCK!
I will try to keep up with an activity log, aka blog, to showcase the work of the season. Your comments are welcomed.
