    2002 Pontiac Trans Am

    One of the last Trans Am`s made.

    About a year ago the client had his car repainted to the original factory color. I will admit the painter did an excellent job.
    However, He has been improperly washing his car for the last year and it looked like it has lived its entire life in a Tunnel-O`-Swirls.
    This client was meticulous about his car and he knew every square inch. He had a detailed list of lots of items he wanted corrected.
    It took a four step polishing process and a little over 20 hours to correct it to a perfectly flat, swirl free, scratch free, high gloss finish.

    He said he never took it to a "car wash". He did all this by hand.


    I did instruct him on the proper way to wash it in the future.


    Sorry, I didn`t get time to shoot the after pics until the client came for pickup.


    I know I didn`t get any direct sun shots when it was completed. (I was busy working)


    Hopefully the flat reflection speaks for itself.


    BTW-He is entering it in a local car show tomorrow. Hopefully I can take some sun shots there.
