This Is Absolutely Why You Should Polish Your Ride
Polishing is the step in the detailing process that yields the most dramatic difference in your paint. The objective of polishing is to remove imperfections in the paint, such as swirls, scratches, water spots, etchings, and oxidation. Having these imperfections in your paint means that light that passes through gets refracted, ultimately dulling the finish, yielding less gloss and depth, less reflections, and can turn into an eye sore. When these imperfections are removed, your paint will have the highest level of gloss and reflections are mirror like, with sharp accurate detail.
The image to the right show swirl marks before polishing. The above image shows after polishing. The below images show before and after shots of a serverly oxidized roof of a 2008 Cadillac. As you can see from the images, polishing makes a drastic impact on the paint and the overall appearance of the vehicle.
