Default Another detail, another Lexus

Thanks to Samson for this referral.

Originally started with a "show car prep", so I gave it the ultimate detail. Full on paint correction, massaged the leather, and waxed it with only the best...Zymol VINTAGE!!!

Here's what it looked like when I got it...

Yup, that's the one. I also did Brian's red G35 last week, but some idiot forgot his camera.

I did! Well, not paint it white, but he has all the stuff that I use. If you guys show up for the Scion Sunday event , I'll do wash/wipedowns on Saturday if you bring it to me.

I have some yellow spots/stains on my paint that I want to get rid of. is there anything that can remove them? I thought it might have been from a bug or acid rain, but someone told me its from brake dust. help.

Sounds like bee poo A little hand polish should take care of it. Where is it located?

one is located on the roof, the other on the front pillar, and a third on the passenger door. tried using cleaner wax, nu finish polish, the dealer tried to use their 'magic' remover and also a buffer but nothing. looks like it might be under the clear coat. dont know how because the car is garage kept and I usually clean the car often. think you could help?

I highly doubt its under the clear coat. if you can take some pics to capture the stains, I can tell you what to use. If not, you have to bring it by the shop so I can take a look at it. PM me to set up a meeting.
