What was supposed to be an "easy" detail turned out to be a nightmare. This was contaminated that I had to do the ABC Decon TWICE! And even after that it still had enough film to catch my pads and make my Metabo AND my Flex overheat and go into shut down. I had to bust out the Makita to finish the job.

What made it worse was that the paint was so thin I couldnt really use anything more abrasive than SIP and a little of M105 because I didnt want to cut through the clear.....

great job as always. That's pretty nuts about that car, was it just too long since it's been detailed or is it the Honda paint?
