Holy Swirl marks, batman!

As you might remember, I drove this car cross country with the Fireball Run inagural transcontinental rally, then took it to Monster Jam where the monster truck Grave Digger spewed rocks all over my baby!!!  These guys did an amazing job of bringing the bat back to it’s former glory!!  Thanks guys!  Keep checking for comments and updates, he has a lot of photos!
Re: Batmobile Show Car Makeover – Pictures & Comments

The Batmobile sees a lot of wear and tear as it’s a daily driver and the SoCal environment is a relatively harsh environment as it relates to finish care.

First we’re going to do a couple of test spots, for perspective, here’s a shot of the rear of the car and we’ll be doing at least two test spots to dial in a process for the single stage paint on this car.

This is the kind of swirling that is throughout the finish of the Batmobile

Here’s Nick wrapping some tape around the rubber grommet of the radio antenna to make clean up easier and to prevent getting any product on the rubber gasket or in the cracks and grooves in this area.

After claying these areas we did two test spots, one on each side of the Turbine. On one side we did,

M105/Rotary Buffer/W8207
M80/G110/W-8006

On the other side Nick did,

M105/Rotary Buffer/W8207
M82/G110/W9207

Two days of pro-polishing

A snug fit in the Meguiar’s Batcave!

Anytime you can remove any trim or other components before machine cleaning and polishing it’s a good idea to do so. Here Nick removes the Bat Antenna.

Meguiars super bat polish after a Dark Knight!

After seeing the new Dark Knight movie in IMAX (yes, I reccomend it but not for little kids…) I had to get some of that darkness off of me.  Lucky for me my bat-pal over at Meguiars Mike put together a super League of Detailers to get some grime off of the Gotham Cruiser.
