Default The Latest Satisifed Customer

well since i do nothing for performance input i figured i would add another detialing thread. after taking an hour to figure out my approach i finally knocked about 85% or so of the scratches out...his clear seemed a lot harder to work on then previous cars ive done. here are some pics of the paint. the whole truck looked like this. i didnt get any of the whole truck before i started.

WOW that looks amazing. I think i might just get a FLEX instead of the PORTER CABLE. That literally looks like a new paint job.
