The Back Story
The owner of this immaculate 1969 Dodge Charger R/T had seen our previous Weekly Buff about the 1971 Challenger R/T and immediately knew what he wanted to do with his baby. It was not in perfect shape when it came to swirls, light scratches, etc. But there was definitely some room for improvement.
We ended up needing to do a hard 2 step paint correction to ensure we could get this straight black paint looking as perfect as possible. We started with our EVO 21 using a wool heavy cutting pad paired with our EVO 800 Heavy Cut compound. Once the heavy swirls and scratches were attacked we moved on to removing the marring and smaller imperfections left behind from the heavy cut process. We used our Yellow Cut Finish pad and a mixture of the EVO 2000 Cut Finish Polish and EVO 3000 Ultra Finish Polish to attain a near perfect finish (less some heavier scratches and rock chips).
The owner decided we should do the EVO 9H Titanium after seeing how shiny and glossy the Challenger was, we applied 2 layers of 9H Ti to all the painted surfaces. We also ceramic coated all the glass, the plastic & trim, and also gave the wheels a nice polish and layer of our Wheel & Caliper coating. The end result was a straight black 1969 Dodge Charger that reminded him of looking into a black bucket of paint.
