Although from the looks of the car, its clean, once we focus on the surface. Watermarks.
With LED lighting, the watermarked and swirls all surfaced.
Sun shots were taken as well.

We have with us the latest Nissan Teana fresh from the dealership barely a week old. The owner brief us that the car was is perfect shape. Little to know that the car had already been sent to a so called professional car care center.
Upon arrival, the first glance was gloss and shine, second was the dirt and dust but as we inspected in detailed…
We found alot of severe polishing damage that was caused by improper usage of the rotary buffer. Holograms were spotted on most panels.
Some were so severe that it did not require any form of lighting to see them.

After 3hours spent on just correction, the final cleaning was done and the coating applied.
