When it comes to detailing in general, working on Ferrari's ranks at the top of the list! This Ferrari detail was more about paint correction than anything else. My customer had recently purchased this Ferrari from a private party in Florida and had taken delivery with less than enthusiastic results do to the lack luster condition. We assessed the car from the wheels to the interior and realized that currently this Ferrari was sitting at about a level 6 as far as potential; this was unacceptable!
Model: 360 Modena
Location: Huntington Beach, CA
One of the drawbacks to shopping for cars online is the misrepresentation that can take place with pictures. Overall, pictures can be very forgiving. When my customer took delivery of this Ferrari he was less than pleased. After taking thorough inventory of its condition, I reassured him that this Ferrari could go from boring to fabulous and nobody in their right mind could help but rubber-neck his car by the time I was finished performing some expert attention.
Paint correction is basically what is sounds like; correcting paint blemishes and flaws through the use of buffers, polishes, and polish pads. Through the selection of buffers, pads, and polishes, it is possible to customize the exact level of polishing required based on what you are working on and the desired goal. You can further customize the moment through speed selection of the buffer and pressure put onto the work area. Looking close will reveal areas that have been masked off for protection with painters tape.
This second picture shows the taping off of this Ferrari detail in more revealing lighting. Protecting sensitive and prone areas from buffer damage is critical for professional results. Tape can also be used to cover intricate areas like the wiper blades from any polish splatter.

The interior was not overlooked as it sat in less than acceptable condition just as the paint work did. Some concentrated effort using the right leather cleaners, carpet shampoo, and professional techniques raised the bar on the interior to amazing levels!
Traditional car leather cleaners prove to be ineffective due to the fact that they are formulated to be idiot proof. Unfortunately when industry delivers product that have been dumbed-down to the least common denominator of the herd, we all suffer with ineffective products. Professional car leather cleaning is the only way to get these kinds of results.
After many hours behind the polisher selecting just the right polish pads and polishes, we have the end result which was dramatic. Not only was my customer extremely happy but I too was more than pleased with the finished results.
While not every day in the world of professional detailing includes working on cars of this caliber and prestige, this day was one of the moments that makes professional detailing something to feel fortunate about. Few cars represent the culmination of exquisite design, superior materials, and fit and finish at the top like this Ferrari represents.
