I have to tell you, after working on this car for a couple days and a wonderful test ride(yes I was lucky enough to have the owner let me take it out and get a feel for how the car drives ) I have really come to respect these new 370Z cars! This one was equipped with the automatic with paddles, these things are the real deal with very quick shift changes as well as rev-matching on each downshift, it was very fun to drive! Aside from that the car needed some love, the dealership of course left some nice swirls in it from when the owner bought it new. He couldnt live with the swirls any longer and was recommended my way, so we performed a full paint correction on the car.

After performing an ONR wash on the entire vehicle and claying, I began testing which products I will be using. I tried M205/Orange and while it removed SOME swirling, it wasnt cutting enough to remove the RIDS the dealership left behind.
I ended up using M105/PAC PFW for the initial correction work. Some areas requiring a 2-3 passes to fully remove all RIDS at 1500rpm on the rotary.
After M105/PAC PFW via rotary followed by M105/Orange via DA.
