    Lexus sc400 paint correction

    I got my hands on a Lexus SC400 that was in very bad shape. I can't even tell you what was wrong with the finish because I don't know what caused the haze on the clear coat. It looked very cloudy but was smooth, and nothing came off with a thorough claying. I think it was from a car cover in the wind. It just continuously beat it to death.

    This is an aftermarket paint job so its not perfect but here are some pictures for you.

    Only on the hood and the bumpers. I need to test them out on my own stuff to get a good grove going with them. I used the Meguiars kit on everything else, and put final coat of Meguairs yellow wax on everything..

    The green s10, please don't remind me about that. I rubbed my fingers down the hood to see how the paint felt, and this is what happened.
