I know the owner of this vehicle only because his wife is part owner of the mechanic’s shop where all 3 of my vehicles are service and maintained. First let me say, I was not hired to do full correction on this vehicle. Second let me say, that this paint needed some wet sanding or a repaint. The customer is getting ready to sell the truck. My job was to clean the paint to get it ready for sell. As you can see, this 4x4 is used to go 4 wheeling. I am not positive, but it looks like it was driven through a forest, and might have bumped a tree or two. Also – minor paint cracks here and there and clear coat failure across the top of the passenger doors.
Here we go:
