Horrible dealer prep work on 08' Vette restored and looks stunning!

The word "New" is very relative as proved by the delivery of this vehicle. Todd from Esoteric Auto Detail shows us the various imperfections this vehicle came with and how he restores them. Check out the stunning shine on this 2008 Chevy Corvette - Crystal Red Metallic.

There is also an extra article that reviews the Blackfire Wet Diamond w/polycharger. This is a newer sealant that is quickly becoming the favorite product of many professionals. Check out the Blackfire Wet Diamond Product Review to learn more.

We encourage you to also look at the other Professional Detailing Articles on our site. If you have any questions or comments please let me know.

Sorry I didn't link to the article sooner. However if you read the article we speculate on the most likely causes of the various problems you'll see in the before pics. There are even worse imperfections in other pictures. I highly encourage you to check out the full detail at those links.

Re: Horrible dealer prep work on 08' Vette restored and looks stunning!

i was at the Jeep dealer one getting some work done, first on at the shop (7am) and i notice a bunch of what looked like 'laborers' with a couple of absorber cloths drying the dew off of all the trucks. i was horrified. they were dropping them all over the place and picking them right back up at dryin.., er, scratching the paint all over the place..

Re: Horrible dealer prep work on 08' Vette restored and looks stunning!

Dealer preps are usually just horrible for the paint. I recently bought a car and I told the salesman that I would be seriously angry if they detailed it. I told him I want all that dust already on the car still there when I come back to pick it up. He and some other people there thought I was a little crazy.
