Why would he clean such an expensive car in that dark ass garage? Turn some f'ing lights on so you can see what you're doing.

Very thorough, I don't agree with some of his process, as I don't like buffing a car with out effectively cleaning the paint. I would have clayed that car before even touch a buffer to it. I would even try using a hand compound on it too. Extra work would be beneficial on this car. Claims to have taped up but we'll never know. But overall car came out well.

I gotta figure it he's got well healed clients that trust him with million dollar toys, he knows his business. I'll bet it's a couple of grand for his work on that GTO.

Money doesn't mean brains. I've seen plenty of successful people totally F up a car.

Yup, I guess there are a few exceptions to the NORM in anything, and there's always somebody with nothing to do but point them out......

The PC 7424 is awesome. I bought one yrs. ago and used it with Meguiars foam pads and compound. It worked wonders on the oxidized paint. I also color sanded one car after painting it. Then used the 7424 and 3M products to finish.
