2008 Infiniti G37s (Blue Slate Pearl/Dark Grey Metallic)

Detailing Samples, by Johnny.

“Optimum Opti-Coat 2.0 is a permanent coating that protects automotive paint over its lifetime! Unlike a wax or sealant, Optimum Opti-Coat 2.0 will not wash or wear off. It acts as a second layer of clear coat which provides increased protection against the elements”

Fresh paint doesn’t come too fresh from most body shops. It’s common to see holograms (Rotary induced scratches) on fresh paint jobs since most body shops go straight to cutting with a rotary, but doesn’t take the time to finish it down to allow the paint to refract light the way its suppose to. What you’re left with are buffer trails (holograms) where you can see exactly where the “detailer” went with the machine. Steven’s G37s came in today with just that – a lot of holograms, and a lot of swirls that needed a bit of attention as well. I started with a decontamination, and continued with FG400, and finished down with M105. The paint is looking fresh with about 90% correction – the clear bra was a different story though. I was afraid to go more aggressive on the clear bra as it may burn the film, so I did what I could to improve it.
