Default 2006 LB 1 and 2 step Paint

So after a few posts pix and links i was contacted by a fellow member here to do a potential 1 step on the exterior paint, i quoted him blindly without looking at the car. After meeting him and looking at the car a little closer the car definitely required a 2 step. But after taking a couple measurements of the paint some areas wasnt healthy enough to compound the low Clear coat areas. Here are some pix of the car in the condition it arrived.

The owner was ver pleased and so was I seeing his reaction and the sincerity in his voice made this 10 hour correction job all worth it. While i was waiting for him to pick it up I worked on the interior a bit and dressed up his engine, threw it in since i was bored and had extra time lol
enjoy and thanx for watching

Good work. Just curious though, did you use that small hand buffer on the entire car? If so is it swirled?

What products did you use on this project?
