FRS Paint Correction!

Finally had some time to do some paint correction on the FRS. Ever since I took it home from the dealer it had a major case of the swirls all over the car – kind of a bummer cause “usually” all the cars I’ve bought have had great paint with very little paint issues. I guess this is what I signed up for when I bought a black car… At the same time, black is the best looking color when it’s free of swirls and freshly washed and wax.

Last weekend I made a trip to Carzilla and picked up some new additions for my arsenal. On a side note – anyone who is serious about their paint and caring for it NEEDS to go to hit up Carzilla locally. There hasn’t really been a good place locally to pick up some good, brand name products. Not only do they have some sick products, the customer service is top notch. They spent a lot of time telling me about a lot of the new products they have and combinations. I was going back and forth between a few waxes and when I couldn’t decide, they gave me samples to “try before I buy”. I’ve only been there that one time but I’ll be a repeat customer for sure.

Starting off. The lighting isn’t the best in my garage right now and it’s hard to tell – black looks fine under this light but trust me it was bad.

Washed and ready to go.

My cheap mans attempt at trying to showcase the swirls in the paint. It’s barely noticeable in this pic but you have to take my word for it… It’s bad haha

Picked up a bottle of Menzerna PF2500.

Also a new pad and the little samples. One on the left is Victoria Wax and the one on the right is another product (I forget the name) for black cars.

All done! Nice and wet!

As you can also see – a shitload of construction going on around us 24/7 so it’s ALWAYS dusty. Such a pain…

Nice and good from the back.

No more swirls!

Also decided that while I was at it, I’d throw on the LEVEL one decal. I know – my car is still stock as shit but it’ll give me something to work towards… Ironically, this is the most difficult decal to get “level” by yourself… LOL

Ended up getting it and it’s perfect! Better than new!

Shout out to Carzilla for the awesome products and the service. The recommendation of Menzerna PF2500 and the orange cutting pad is awesome!
