Dragonman brought me his Blue Velvet Metallic 5th gen for ceramic coating and an interior detail. It was in great shape. The swirling was not too bad at all.



The picture shows halogen bulbs vs a Flex Swirl Finder light. Next to the sun, I believe halogen bulbs are the best at showing up swirls.





After polishing:













Blue Velvet Mirror!

I was looking at your pictures and was thinking why can't someone like this be from Kentucky! Any chance you detail cars? I bought a new 2018 this weekend that definitely needs paint correction and protection.

I'm located on Fort Knox.
