We are here today for this Mazda CX-5. Its been a year since it was last treated with any form of car care. We are expecting a little more work today to restore the car to its showroom state.
Upon arrival, we did our standard walk around the car to inspect for any obvious damages.
Overall, the car looked okay from a distance, but when we looked closer…
We spotted some quite severe damages.
similar damages were spotted on the lower portion of the car.
More visible scuff were found around the car.
Some were not as severe.
As we rinsed the car. the water just was not beading on the surface, this indicates the paint had no protection at all.
The paint was quite swirled up on multiple panels around the car.
We spent quite a little time washing the car to get it clean and we started the paint restoration.
The previous severe scuff on the fender was successfully restored.
We were able to remove all the swirls from the paint.
Restoring the paint to a swirl free state.
At the same time, restoring the paint’s glossiness.
After more than 6hours restoring the paint, the coating was finally applied. Enjoy the unedited, raw phone camera photos and photos taken in natural light.
Most so called professional centers will utilize warm lightings to enhance the gloss, but when parked under the sun after a few washes, the car is no longer that shiny.
