Cadillac Detailing and Bodywork - Interior and Exterior including Body and Wheels Discussion, Don't make this mistake in Item Specific Cadillac Discussion; I had a guy come in with a black NSX the other day and wanted me to inspect the car ...
I had a guy come in with a black NSX the other day and wanted me to inspect the car and set up an appointment, it had swirls, scratches and holograms all over it. When I asked him how it cared for the car he said he only washed the car with water, HUGE mistake. without using the surfactants (soap) to lubricate and break down the contaminants, all you are doing is rubbing the dirt into the finish causing all sorts of damage. Next he was using a kitchen sponge, another no no. Only use chanelli, micro fiber or other dense type mitts, this will allow any dirt to get trapped inside the material, a sponge acts like sandpaper. Last he was using terri towels to dry. Since the introduction of micro fiber, the waffle weave MF towel is the best choice for drying, see my web site for info in it. Just by following some simple procedures you can keep that car in prestine condition. Gary

Re: Don't make this mistake
I know this is an old thread...
and I'm not talking about a caddy here...
You mentioned above about 'holograms'.... my friend's 97 Sebring seems to have 'patterns' in the hood and trunk lid, and nothing short of 60-grit sandpaper seems to help....
Is this the same thing you described above, and if so, can you suggest something (other than paint) that we can do about it?
