Arrow 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.











Cutting stages underway (prior to any refinement)









Some lovely DA marks to contend with.





More correction.











Fabric hood re-coloured and proofed.



Weathered plastic revitalised and protected using SiRamik SC-15.





Gtechniq G1 coating applied to the glass.



*Paintwork panel wiped with Spie Hecker.
*PolishAngel Master Sealant x2 coats applied to the paintwork.
*Alloys sealed using Insulator Wax.
*Tyres & rubber trim nourished with Gyeon Tire.
*Britework polished using Britemax Metal twins.
*PolishAngel Rapidwaxx applied as a final coat.

Finished Results.

















Thanks for looking, comments welcomed and appreciated.
