Detailed: 2012 Honda Accord Euro CU2 Luxury [Nighthawk Black Pearl]

The Details

Year: 2012
Manufacturer: Honda
Make: Accord Euro CU2 Luxury
Colour Code: Nighthawk Black Pearl
Condition: Moderate swirling
Paint Type: Soft, sticky

Definitely one of our favourite cars to date – a beautiful and elegant luxury car that combines grace and aggressiveness in the curves and angles of its body. The client required the vehicle to be ready the next day – which meant the car had to be detailed overnight to meet the client’s needs. The car is almost brand-new and had existing swirls instilled by the dealership. We were able to restore the vehicle to better-than-new condition and protect it from the harsh elements coming this winter.

Decontaminated with a mixture of Concourse Blizzard Snow Foam and Einszett 1Z W99 Degreaser to remove all waxes, glazes and oils.2012hondaaccordeurocu2luxurynighthawkblack (1)All crevices were brushed to remove excessive wax

The excessive wax was removed with Mint APC and a cotton tip2012hondaaccordeurocu2luxurynighthawkblack (5)
We used a paint thickness gauge to measure the paint to ensure safe correction.  An average of 173 microns was found across the car, leaving a lot of clear to play with

Most trims (especially chrome) must be taped up to prevent polish staining

To remove the hazing from the polish, the paint was further refined with Menzerna SF4000 on a Lake Country CCS Black Pad.  Due to the soft nature of the paint, a fine polish such as PF2500 must still be refined.2012hondaaccordeurocu2luxurynighthawkblack (10)
