    With readings like that I probably would have been just as conservative as you are, and I thought the swifts paint was thin! that is a whisp of paper for gods sake!

    You probably could have risked it and corrected about 90 percent of the damage but IMO it is not worth sacrificing what little clear is there in the first place for that - and the customer can't be all THAT fussed if they managed to do that in the first place.

      Good job Matt.

      There's absolutely nothing wrong with erring on the side of caution.....

        Good Job Matt, crazy typical Mazda paint levels but good work well done.
        Matty, I have just ordered a bucket load of stuff from Tommo (about $1500 worth of stuff including the P-01A, M1 Shot and the BC-05) I am yet to try it out...I will let you know how I go.

              Great results, looks nice and glossy now mate.

              Which Duragloss sealant did you use?

                Very very nice result, yes Mazda paint is very tricky to deal with when that this but you pulled it off, well done. Like Dan said, nothing wrong with erring on the side of caution. All you need is a strike through and that can really affect your confidence, well done again.

                  Good work on a tricky detail.

                  As Dan and Mozz have said, nothing wrong with erring on the side of caution.

                  My theory with daily drivers is to get as good a result as possible while preserving as much clear as possible. Not to mention 99.9% of "normal" people won't notice the difference between 75% and 100% correction.

                    The whole car was much the same, Owners efforts at trying to polish the car himself

                    I would have to agree with Josh, He said he used Armorall Polish. I've never even seen polish by armourall but yeah Id say he used that with a dirty cloth, maybe the surface wasn't 100% clean (He didn't clay bar the car before hand I know that) and the mixture of soft paint caused the severe marring.

                    Thanks Dan, Yep and as Auto Alchemy & wolfgang mentioned, I don't think this owner was expecting a 100% correction let alone the results that were achieved.

                    Thanks Bobby, I used the Duragloss 601 & 105.
