Black car blues-08 SL550

Just got the car on Memorial day. Paint looked ok, but horizontal surfaces were rough...really rough. So break out the clay



yuck!

After clay, hit it with a quick coat of Megs #7 then #26. looked pretty good






Until I saw it under LED light...



once again, yuck!

That looks like more than my pc will correct, but it's what I got



It did clean up a good bit, still needs rotary. Cut only, no glaze or wax



Done!






Overall, car looks better. so I'll be happy with it til I get better tools

I need to do mine. The swirl marks are extremely bad. I may need to hire a pro but I'll break out the Cyclo soon and see what i can do.
