Big "A" Detailing Acura TL @ the Brooklyn Bridge w Chris C3 Photography

The TL came in with medium swirls & some dullness to the paint. She needed a little more than just a polish so a 2 step was done with the Makita 9227 C rotary. First round with orange flat foam pads + Meguiars M105 Compound. After that was done I used blue flat foam pads + Meguiars M205 Polish. I finished off the TL with a nice coat of 1Z Einszett Glanz wax.

I had no time to document any of my work that day. My head was down looking at swirls on this car & on a black Cherokee as well. All I saw were swirls. All I heard was the humming sound of the Makita's motor...

The photo shoot started just before the sun came up...somewhere around 4am...

Thanks For Looking!
