G37 rescued from so-so repaint and buffer trails

Turned out better than expected.

2010 or so Infiniti G37 6 speed sedan. I corrected it a couple years ago, then it got hit in the rear. The shop did a so-so job, left excessive orange peel and buffed the entire car, leaving holograms all up and down it.

Paint was swirled the heck up.

The combo that worked the fastest (and left a pretty good finish) was Meguiars M100 and an Optimum foamed wool cutting pad. These are after compounding, paint is nearly haze free after such an aggressive combo.

Followed with Optimum Hyper Polish and a Meguiars low profile burgundy cutting pad and Optimum Hyper Seal. Nowhere to move the car out after I finished.

Was able to get a few shots last night at our meet. He is building a different set of lights so that's why I didn't polish them out.
