He asked me to detail and protect it, so I did it with a smile on my face. We were planing this for a few weeks,just enough time for me to buy some stuff and get ready.The car being 14 months old was if fairly good condition with only some light swirls and a few light RIDS (nothing major).Light swirls on black paint (common wash and dry damage) Bird drop etchingsMore swirlsMy friend did however notify me on a few spots that were of concern to him. I believe they were chemical etchings but I'm not sure. They were located on the spoiler and did damage the black gloss paint.I had two days to get the job done so I started right away.
