We’ve been recently working on a 2004 Subaru Forester XT for a huge wet sanding correction, and to get the car show ready after new paint. After many, many, many hours, and the new paint looking flat, well corrected, and coated, all the little details remain to bring it all together. These little things in my opinion, are what separates a detailer from your typical, to show standards. It’s that bit of OCD in me that comes in handy sometimes!
In detailing, we often see headlight restorations, but it’s fairly rare to see taillights getting much attention. This is an area to show that you’re different and to really bring the detail together. A simple 3k grit wet sand got rid of the major defects and haze. I then went to a Meguiar’s Microfiber Cutting Disc and M100 to cut it out, and polished with a Black LC Pad and CarPro Reflect. For protection, the famous Crystal Serum Ultra from Gtechniq knocked it out of the park. We made sure to coat not just the area corrected, but also the black trim around them to really make them pop when the hatch is open. These taillights are looking brand new with about 20 minutes invested into them.
