Assessing the work to be done
Not easy to be noticed. On this color, it’s as if the defects have got “shyness DNA”
From previous respray job, rubber trims damaged!
NEW paint defect
light scratches and RIDS, full of swirls but the metallic flakes just make it difficult to be captured.
wait, not yet over
the lower sections
same on both sides of the rear bumper
The paint has sanding marks and scratches beaneath the clear-coat. We had to proceed with extreme caution and to add, Hondas are the champion of soft paints.
a spot or 2 remain, would have needed more clear coat removal
More swirls appearing due to a flatter surface, holograms are there too from the compounding step
Beading during the polishing stage
Checking and checking
