2008 Nissan Xterra

This vehicle was done as a surprise for the owners wife while they were out of town. He had just purchased a new truck and this was going to be given to his wife for her to use. It was in need of a very thorough cleaning prior to being used by her. The paint was in very poor condition and the trim was faded. The interior was also in need of a very good cleaning.

Wash Process

Till I cleaning the wheels and tires it was dark when I started the foam pre-soak. This was followed by a 2 bucket method wash, chemical decon and wash with Nanoskin mit.

Correction Process

50/50 on the hood after my test spot, you can actually see the metallic in the paint now.

The metallics of this beautiul color were being hidden by the heavy swirling and buffer tails.

This is a good picture showing just how much of a difference the process made. the paint looks a totally different color.

Driver side rear tail light also was heavily swirled.

Nice deep glossy blue metallic paint.
