2002 vw golf paint correction/ 14+ hrs

This was another Volkswagen golf given to me to take care of. Starting off with the roof it was the worth part of the car to deal with .. no shine to it sort of like a chalk board due alote of sun damage .Other than that the paint had the defects most black cars have. Heavenly swirled, scratches.

Does the finish last a few years or at least a few washes?

Thinking this would greatly help when trying to sell a car or when you buy a used one. I would have tried this before going to the extent of painting my whole car, compound and wax wasn't enough with my original paint.

If the car gets washed properly and taking care of the paint making sure their is a nice wax or sealant always present ( water beading) then it will last. Their is something out called opti coat wich i have applied before. It's a lifetime sealant wich acts likes a layer of clear. Só swirls and scratches don't become present

Doogee it does look like that! The paint was really damaged in the roof looked like matt black. Expecially on very hard vw paint the roof came out really nice.

Great work.

It's surprising how many people think a car must need a repaint to look that proper. A proper/legitimate detail (ie. not some Joe Blow service next to a coin op car wash) works wonders.
