How to Detail Faded Paint by Hand (Paint Correction)

Embark on a journey of transformation with a comprehensive guide to car detailing. Discover the techniques for paint correction manually, eliminating swirl marks, rejuvenating faded trim, headlight restoration, and repairing sun-damaged surfaces.
