Aston Martin DB9: Paintwork Correction-Gleammachine Essex Detailing.
 
A recent DB9 that was booked in with me for a correctional detail over the course of 5 days, having fallen foul to some poor bodyshop finishing and at the had of another detailer at some time or another. The original panels showing low readings of 70-95 microns, various burn through's to edges etc.. my work was cut out to remove the defects and retain some clearcoat for future maintenance.

Level of the defects I was presented with.

Detailing at its finest, nice clear shots of before and after which has shown your experience in correcting paint even with such low readings,.. Top drawer.
