2013 Subaru WRX STI New Car Prep and Opticoat V2

I was contacted by a client of mine who recently traded his GTI for an STI earlier this year. I had already washed, clayed and applied Sonax Polymer Net Shield to it but he wanted me to go ahead and do a full new car prep on it for him so that after it was corrected I could coat with with Opticoat V2. He also wanted some clear film removed on the rear doors and some de-badging and re-badging done. I did this correction about three weeks ago anyways on to the photos.
