T-dawg Detailed: 2001 Ferrari 360 Modena

Got woken up last Sunday morning by the owner of one of the local luxury dealerships because he wanted one of his cars polished up and ready for viewing from a prospective buyer. It was a black 360 Modena, so I thought "What the heck, I'll work on a Ferrari on a Sunday "

Not many before/during pics, but lots of afters. Enjoy!

Products Used:

Paint Cleansing:
Genuine Sheepskin Mitt via 2 bucket system
P21S Bodywork Conditioning Soap
Poorboy's All Purpose Cleaner 3:1 ratio
ClayMagic Blue
Chemical Guys QD

Paint Correction:
Makita 9227 Rotary Polisher
GI 5" Backing Plate
GI 3" Backing Plate
GI 5.5" White Compounding Pad
GI 4" White Compounding Pad
GI 5.5" Green Finishing Pad
Lake Country 6.5" CCS Green Pad
Lake Country 5.25" CCS Green Pad
Lake Country 4" CCS Orange Pad
Scholl's S03+ Heavy Cut
Menzerna Super Intensive Polish (PO 3.02)
Menzerna Power Finish (PO203)
Menzerna Micro Polish (PO85RD)
Menzerna Top Inspection

Paint Protection:
LSP - Chemical Guys Jet Seal

Wheels and Tires:
Autoglym Custom Wheel Cleaner
Wheel acid 3:1 ratio
Wheel Wax Wheel Sealant
GI Tire Dressing

There were fine swirls all over the car, as well as a big scratch on the hood:


Lots of deeper swirls were visible on the top of the driver side door:


There were three DEEP scratches on the trunk lid:


Hard at work, polishing the swirls on the driver side door:


Driver side door after:


Scratches gone on trunk lid after two passes of S03+ followed by Menz PF & 85RD:


Worked on the interior while giving the sealant time to cure:


Removing the LSP after about an hour:


Finished shots:












As usual, I like to finish off my posts with my favourite pic:

Nice job! Some of those scratches looked pretty deep. Did you have to do any paint touch up afterwards or did the polish clean them all up?

Nvasion: Thanks man!

syee: Thanks! All of the swirls and deep scratches were taken care of by polishing alone. I only had to use paint touch up on the rock chips.

Jeffield: Hey Jeffield, I don't give price quotes on this board because I am not an advertiser on Revscene. Feel free to send me a private message and I can give you more information for your C63!

Coach Hines: Thanks man, no this is not at a detailing shop. This job was done at a dealership in Vancouver that deals with high end luxury + exotics.

Roach: Thanks Kev, none of the scratches had to be wetsanded. I expected having to wetsand the 3 scratches on the trunk lid, but since I was able to achieve about 98% correction without doing so, it was fine by me in order to preserve the integrity of the clear coat.

ilvtofu: Yes that is at a dealership, they normally have at least a few great looking cars in stock at all times. The 993 was detailed a few weeks prior, but I did not have time to take detailed pictures for a write-up then due to time constraints.

The Ferrari had around 20,000km on it, not bad at all for a car that is almost 10 years old. From my experience, it doesn't really matter how expensive the car is, I still see trashed paint all the time just from lack of care or knowledge.

Looking out the back window while backing up and seeing the gorgeous engine bay doesn't hurt either!
