The Z is small but it is a complicated body with lots of ridges. This was a lot of work but the main reason it looks so good is a couple seasons ago I wet sanded the whole car and polished it back out.
The work that allows this type of shine happened back in 2016. Fixed all the rock chips then a full wet sand of the entire car.
Some areas went as low as 600 grit paper, then worked my way through 800 and 1000 by hand.
that was followed up with 2000 and 3000 on a DA orbital buffer
Some chip work on the hood
More spot repairs..
Starting to blend in all the repairs to a consistent level of flat/dullness
This is a good pic - The lower rocker under the door you see the orange-peel look in the clear coat as I started working on flattening it. The dull spots are higher than the dark spots. No amount of polish and wax will make that look great. This was all over the car but this pic shows it best.
