My 08' Montego Blue was ... uh... HORRIBLE! I just finished spending 12 hours alone on the paint work this past weekend! 1 pass LC yellow pad, 1 pass LC orange pad, 1 pass polish, 2 passes wax, and re-wash. I couldnt move my back hurt so bad! started at 7 am and finished at 8 pm! But... after all that time.. the car now looks brand new. no more RIDS, swirls, water etching, etc. just nice, water dripping glssy paint. (minus the rock chips...lol)
I cant believe I waited so long to actually do it since I bought it... But im glad its over. The cars paint looked horrid and you would think it needed a new paint job... how much a detail changes that.
