A perfect example of how wet sanding can help where machine polishing alone just wont cut it. High contact points like this back bumper has suffered resulting in deep scratches being left behind.
Using various stages of wet sanding grades from medium grade to a fine grade, each stage perfecting the other. A uniform and level action ensuring to not create more damage and achieve a finish benefiting from wet sanding.
Finished with a multistage machine polish starting with a heavy cut to remove the wet sanding marks, ultimately restoring that clear coat from the imperfections and scratches producing that stunning paintwork and avoid a respray!
A poor paintwork repair here has left a nasty finish and messy, not so subtle "blend line" attempted to be hidden in the prominent bodywork line. If you look at where the lights hit the paintwork they start to look wobbly towards the middle of the panel..
After various paint depth readings around this one panel and surrounding panels to check the consistency in depth we could then start to wet sand, here you can see on the right hand side that worm like effect, this is what needed levelling via the wet sanding, and the various "dust nibs" removed.
That wobbly worm like effect would be from repair work that's unfortunately "sunk back" and settled in that unpleasant way, by wet sanding it allows the clear coat to be levelled again creating that nice crisp finish with nothing spoiling that reflection which is what gives it away in the first place!
Whilst wet sanding is, absolutely, our favourite skill to do, its not always possible to do. Our previous experience in body shops has allowed us to become competent with wet sanding and identifying paintwork issues. An inspection is the best and only way to quote this service.
