ONR wash and clay
50/50 done on the hood showed I would need to take an aggressive approach to get this car ready for coating in a reasonable amount of time.
I used a Cool Pad Hybrid and a Cool Wool Pad in some spots and HD Cut to remove the deeper defects.
Then I followed up with Optimum Hyper Polish on an orange LC flat pad to remove any hazing and bring out the deep gloss.
The windows were polished using the LC orange/Hyper Polish combo to remove some hard water spotting.
All surfaces were given an IPA wipedown and final inspection before applying the Opti-Coat Pro.

And after the full correction and Opti-Coat Pro:
