2011 Lexus IS250C

Project info

In the Shop this week was a 2011 Lexus IS250C.  This was a fun car that really tested our skills, but we were happy to take on this project.  This particular vehicle is in great running condition, however the appearance was well below its potential.  One this Idwaxthat Auto Detailing & Scratch Removal Specialists does NOT do is simply wash a vehicle and call it detailed.  This particular vehicle required a full on detailing including two intense washes, a full clay bar performed on the vehicle, and a paint decontamination to round things off.  To say that the paint felt like sandpaper during the claying process was an understatement.  This paint literally felt like sand at the beach.  The paint was extremely bad.  In the photos below there were various scratches to the clear coat, tons of swirls in the clear coat, and clear coat severely etched from baked on bug guts and overall lack a proper washes and maintenance.  John from Ember Services Inc. did a fantastic job helping out on this detail and is a wizard with a polisher in his hands.  We polished the Chrome, cleaned the leather seats, and inside windows.  The customer requested a windshield restoration and it’s beading water fantastic.  We also applied a super polymer sealant to the paint once we were all done with the compounding and polishing steps.  It took us all day, but in the end, this 2011 Lexus IS250C turned out fantastic.
