Here we have a brand new Subaru BRZ that was a victim of a hit and run.

I'll let the photo speak for itself.



When the customer brought his car in I was extremely skeptical at the possibility of even cleaning it up, already providing him with my body shop's phone number to him. I ran my fingernail across the scratches and they were pretty deep and there were many.

He was quite upset so I told him I would give it a shot without any promises.

The tools and products used:

Rupes BigFoot LHR 15ES
Rupes BigFoot LHR 21ES
Sufbuf Pad 6 inch
Meguiar's Microfiber Cutting Disc 5.25 inch
Menzerna Fast Gloss 400



As you may or may not know I personally don't like to wetsand if I don't have to hence these were the tools and products I decided to use.

After a few passes with the Rupes with the microfiber cutting pad and fg400 we were able to most of the paint transfer out of the paint but it didn't look good.


Another angle



From there I decided to go a bit more aggressive with the Surbuf pad and Menzerna FG400 then went back to the MF Cutting Pad with FG400 to finish it out.
That combo was a success! We were able to get 95% of the damage out.




Total time it took to get these results about 10 minutes, not too bad.

Enjoy

JEEZ phil

Im VERY impressed with those results, i mean that was DEEP im surprised the panel wasnt dented.

Im also interested in MF pads, i wanna do some research on them as i see you get really good cut and finish with 1 pad. Would be good for 1 steps.

Saw this on Facebook, but didn't see the results. Looks great! I'm also very surprised that didn't manage to make it through the paint. Looked like a pretty rough patch.

I dont know if i would have even tried, i imagine the clear is VERY thin at that spot now.

But amazing work.
