Z06 Gets Full Cquartz Finest Treatment

The ZO6 is Chevrolet’s flagship Corvette since the early 60’s is highly sought after.  This one brought to us in Inferno Orange was a recent purchase for this owner.  His main focus was he wanted a car easy to maintain, looked good and he wanted to see what we could do wit the paint.  He came in and decided on a paint correction, wheels off cleaning and our Cquartz Finest Ceramic Paint Coating. 

As soon as the client arrived we got straight to work with our Decontamination wash.  Which includes a citrus based was to remove any existing silicone or waxes, then our Iron X treatment this product safely breaks down ferrous metallic contamination caused by automotive brakes, rail travel, and construction from delicate vehicle surfaces.

After a couple of hours cleaning these, we decided to just remove the wheels and give them a deep cleaning and put them back on. Turns out the barrel was dirtier than we thought.

While those were getting cleaned the attention turned to the calipers.

 We move on to polishing the Inferno Orange Paint.  This vehicle is a little difficult to catch defects in it due to the high amount of metallic pigment in the paint.  It’s even harder to capture it on camera.  But this was as good as we could do. Here is a before shot.

C6 correction

Our multi stage correction will remove almost all of these defects, while still bringing out the depth in the paint.  Typically Chevrolet C6 paint has a very hard clear.  Which requires some skill, and is very time-consuming  to finish down perfectly.

As you can see where the light is its bright around the light then the pigment refracts a bunch of light just outside the ring of the light.  This for any detail can cause a ton of strain on the eyes when the metallic pigment reflects the light that spots defects.  This Paint Correction Process was done over the entire car consuming most of the day.  The back section took extra care and time to remove the tail lights and do a deep cleaning in there as well.
