Arrow Neglected Maserati receives paint correction @ Unique Detail


Here we have a truly neglected 2009 Maserati granturismo, various panels had been repainted at some point and in my opinion at some back street garage that must have let the apprentice loose with no guidance on this one.

The car was also heavily stone chipped across the front bumper and bonnet, this was dealt with by localized touch ups over the course of 5 days that the car was in with us.
Various panels have been wet sanded and the car underwent a three stage machine polish.

Below in no particular order are some before during and after photos.










Various panels had to be wet sanded due to the amount of orange peel and dirt in the clear coat, this was taken to a level to match the factory finish of Maserati.











the rest of vehicle underwent in general a three stage machine polish to remove some deep scratches













Picture below shows the stone chips being repaired, not something I enjoy as the process in getting these done correctly is very time consuming.



Onto the finished pictures, the car was completed in Siramik APT Glasscoat to include the optional 3rd stage of Diamas professionali.

























If you got this far thanks for looking

ATB
Andy

Great stuff Andy, nice shape to work on and shows off the finish perfectly too.

Blu Oceano also suits it well, old car now though.

cheers

Chris

Fantastic work!

I do chip repairs on a daily basis, sometime up 15 bonnets a day, with 3/4 on the go at a time.

It can be a crap job, but it's best to just get your head down and crack on.

I can do one in about 30mins now, not including drying time
