Default 2014 Ferarri 458 Spider - Presidential Automotive Detailing - FL

Please excuse me as Im a little rusty on my write-ups! After about a year waiting for this car to arrive, I finally got a phone call, but the call I got wasnt a good one. Somewhere along the way, the car had been "detailed" before the owner took delivery. Unfortunately, this meant there were buffer "holograms" present throughout the entire cars paint finish. To make things worse, every crevice was caked with white wax/polish residue and every vent had overspray with polish from someone who is inexperienced or in huge rush to get it done. Either way, the owner wasnt happy with what he saw and immediately had me come out to make his brand new 458 look the way it should.

Pre-Detail Inspection





Large amounts of polish sling in all vents. Customer actually had Ferrari dealer take apart the entire rear section of car to be able to gain access to this area. Hopefully they have learned their lesson.


More polish..


Removed.










Even the tail lamps had wax crammed into their crevices.


Holograms in lenses.


Wax removed and Lenses Corrected.


Initial Paint Inspection

Somebody did a number on the finish of this poor 458..nearly every surface on the car was in this condition.














Some deeper scratches near the door handle.

Yeah man. Wish the Corvettes had a factory paint job that looked even half as good coming off the show room floor.

Orange peel comes standard on all Corvettes, it seems. Damn shame they can't seem to do a better job in that department. And from what you are indicating, they haven't learned how to do any better with the new generation.
