Detailed: 2008 Toyota Aurion XV40 ZR6 [Caribbean Blue]

The Details

Year: 2008
Manufacturer: Toyota
Make: Aurion XV40 ZR6
Colour Code: Caribbean Blue
Condition: Moderate swirling
Paint Type: Medium

This car felt like an inbetweener – sporting the looks of a Toyota and the features of a Lexus. Recently bought from a dealer, it had all the swirls and markings instilled from pre-delivery. We were able to decontaminate and correct the paint, coating it with two layers of Wolf’s Chemicals Hard Body, protecting the paint, enhancing gloss and making the vehicle easier to clean.

The paint was a dream to work with – correcting easily and with maximum gloss and depth.
