    No, the client just wanted us to complete the exterior and do a wheel off detail and nano-coating on the wheels.

    This is awesome. I hope you can showcase more older model year cars. Still love the 2015 examples, but the before and after is just stunning for older years.

    Hope you get some 90s ones coming in even. Would be badass.

    Good job.

    This car had extremely soft paint and didn't take much to scratch even with delicate maintenance washing and handling over the years. The owner was very careful with the car and did the best to preserve it over the years that he was enjoying it.

    When we were done paint correction we put on of the best waxes available which would help keep it looking great and also very hydrophobic allowing it to remain cleaner longer and be much easier to maintain.

    Is it common for Lotus paint to be soft? Or only black paint from Lotus?

    On this car the solid black(non-metallic) was very soft and we have seen this on a other makes of cars. Not every solid black paint is very soft, it would all depend on model, make, year based on what paint system was used on that series of car in that colour.
