What we have here is a 2010 Toyota Venza, dressed in Pearlescent White, with roughly 30k on the clock. But you wouldn't know it.
The owner took extremely good care of the car and it showed inside and out, not to say we can't do anything for it but just made our job a bit easier.
There are the usual wash swirl marks but very light, but the biggest issues were the iron spots along the doors and rockers, and the clear bra engulfing the front. After 24 man hours, struggling a bit to see defects in the paint because of the pearl in the paint, the car ended up a 9.8 out of 10. We are super pleased with the outcome and a new fans of pearlescent white (fantastic color in person aside from the difficulties in seeing defects.)
