This one owner, 1999 Pontiac Trans-Am arrived at our shop in Silver Spring with 34,000 original miles. The owner wanted to have the paint restored to it's original beauty and now I think it's better than when it rolled off the assembly line. The only picture that this owner had of the car was from 16 years ago. After we did this paint correction and coating we sent our friends at Crustless Media over to help get them some professional photos of this gorgeous car.
The Pontiac came in with heavily oxidized paint, deep scratches and a lot of swirls throughout the paint. Our three step paint correction easily took care of all of these issues and with the application of gTechniq Crystal Serum Light topped off with the gTechniq EXOv3, this paint will now be protected, look this good and easily cleaned for the next 5-7 YEARS!
In the before and after pictures below you can see that over the years this car has most likely brushed up against tree branches overhanging the road, had keys miss the key hole to open the door, and it even looked like a razor blade was used to remove something along the side fender. These issues didn't stand a chance against our process!
The three stages of this paint correction included two stages of heavy cut compounding to remove defects deep in the paint. The third stage which refines the paint, enhances the depth & clarity of the paint and removes the trails left behind by our buffer.

Here are a few shots of one of the coolest projects I have ever been apart of! This year I was hand selected out of thousands of detailers nationwide to be on the coveted Air Force One Detail Team. This was the very first jet engine Air Force One that President Eisenhower took delivery of in 1959. President Kennedy flew down to Texas before he was assassinated and President Johnson was also sworn in as the next US President on this very plane that we polished! These two presidents were among many heads of state and other VIP's to ride on this piece of history.
Along with polishing the fuselage, wings, crown and engines of Air Force One we also had the opportunity to polish out the Concorde Alpha Golf. The Concorde currently holds the world speed record for flying from New York to its current home at the Museum of Flight in Seattle, WA. The paint on the Concorde was heavily oxidized and dull. Air Force One was in better shape thanks to the team that detailed it last year and gave it a nice layer of protection. Armed with Flex polishers and Sonax polishes me and 34 other seasoned detailers had no problem at all bringing back the original shine and luster to both of these historic planes!
