NX-1 Fabian's Front Bumper

Tonight Fabian brought me the jeep for me to take a look at his new front bumper. The body shop that painted it left it looking very dull and with some fading spots, , it has a tons of scratch marks left from wet sanding.
I tried to repair it as much as I could to bring it back to a gloss but I did not go to aggressive on trying to correct it much more do to the fact that it has only been painted a for a week or so, the paint was still very soft and I had to be very careful not to damage it and make it worst for Fabian. But fortunately it came out better than I thought it would, now Fabian is happy that his entire front bumper has a nice deep gloss as it should of had when it left the body shop.

After the paint has properly cured and Fabian would like to do a full paint correction on his jeep I will go back to that front bumper and make it look better.

BTW, it was nice having Fabian, Joe and Irf at the shop tonight, they all saw how bad that front bumper was and how it came out so is not just me here saying how good it came out, I heard it first from them .
Thanks guys!

Here's just a couple of pictures before and after that I quickly took...
Let me know what you think.

BEFORE...
Look how faded and dull the paint looks.




AFTER...
Now you cansee more of a mirror like gloss, it's like that on the entire bumper.

They wouldn't know how to fix it.. It was a very cheap body shop. At the end, I got what I paid for..
