Okay, in this video I identify the damage that we are going to repair. I even go as far to create some damage just to ensure that my paint will be more jacked up than your paint. I then go into detail about claying, and what it does for your finish. Last of all, I show how to assemble the PC-7424XP so that we can start the polishing process. The video following this video will be in high definition so that you can clearly see the damage and the effectiveness of my repair.
How To for Novices to Machine Polishing - Part 4
Because I wanted the viewers of this video to be able to see the results of
the work that I did in high detail, I uploaded this video in high
definition. That took 12 hours!
In this video, I actually go into the proper technique for polishing with
the PC-7424XP, showing me using the machine properly. I show the polishes
that I use, the pads that each polish is used on, how to work the polisher
and how much polish should be used. I also talk about the importance of not
using too much polish and clogging up the pores in the pads, which makes
the whole process worthless. I go into the discussion of how long to work a
polish and when to stop (after a polish flashes). I show which order the
polishes are used and explain why you use them in that order.
One thing that I stress in this video is the importance of a solid
technique. I talk about and show the technique that I use, as well as how
to ensure that you are developing a solid technique. As I say often in this
video series, "Technique trumps product 365, 24/7. No matter who's polishes
you decide to use, none of them will work worth a darn if your technique
sucks. Technique rules!
How To for Novices to Machine Polishing - Part 2
In this video, I go into detail about exactly what I use to remove the
paint damage within this video series. I name and visually show every piece
of equipment as well as all of the products necessary to do paint
correction. In some cases, I even offer up a location where you can find
the products that I use. I talk about why I chose to use the products that
I use as well as what I don't use. If you want a list of these items, WATCH

Hey boys and girls! Finally, a video series that takes the process of paint
correction from the beginning to the end (from claying to waxing). Although
I do not apply any wax at the end, I cover everything else in detail. This
series is 1 hour and 54 minutes long so that should give you an idea as to
how much detail I go into.
In this first video, I talk in detail about exactly what paint correction
is. I also go into detail about the polishing technique you should use as
well as the best product on the market that you should buy. I cover other
topics too so just sit back and kick up your feet. This video is 15 minutes
and 7 seconds long.
Minor Scratch Removal on a Lamborghini Murcielago
This is a somewhat quick video showing me removing scratches from a
Lamborghini Murcielago. Oddly enough, these cars have some of the same
orange peel issues that your normal economy cars have. However, the clear
coat does appear to be a much better quality than the norm. This is one of
two Lamborghini's that I worked on this weekend.

How to Care for Your Microfiber Towels
In this video, I discuss the proper care of your microfiber towels. I
include tips that you will only hear in a Junkman video and I also dispel
one of the myths that accompanies microfiber towel care.
One thing that I forgot to mention in the video is how to take care of any
serious stains that may end up on your towels. You can use a all purpose
cleaner (like Formula 409) to remove your more serious stains if you
encounter that situation. Simply squirt the stain (don't go crazy with the
squirting), and allow it to sit a few minutes before washing. That should
remove the stain if you address it soon enough. You don't need any kind of
special stain removing detergent and your choice of APC can be used in
other areas of your car. That kills two birds with one stone.
Polishing & Buffing Pads - Choosing The Correct Polishing Pad - Chemical Guys CAR CARE
For all your polishing pad needs:
Engineered, developed and tested to specific requirements of our OEM
clients. These pads utilize the best foams from around the world and the
latest of testing and research and development including Chemical Guys own
Self Centered backing system!
The Hexagon is not new to science, it's just new to detailing. Rather then
try to reinvent some catchy gimmick, Chemical Guys invests in technology
that through the years has simply been unbeatable and improves on it.
Hex-Logic pads are designed to hold product and distribute it evenly over
the surface of the pad, delivering a superior even finish that is hard to
achieve with any other pad.
Nature selected the Hexagon for storage and designed it to be one of the
most efficient holding cells. For example a mass of hexagonal wax cells
built by honey bees in their nests to store honey and pollen. The bees
build the comb with 6 sides for even distribution of product fast and
Junkman's Wheel & Tire Maintenance Regimen
So much for being short! lol!
In this video, I discuss the maintenance regimen I use when it comes to
wheel and tire maintenance. As with everything that I do, it is more about
PREVENTIVE maintenance than it is about the maintenance itself. That's why
I first talk about running a dust-free brake pad like the Thermo Quiet pads
from Wagner. I also talk about the unnecessary expense involved with the
purchase of the many wheel cleaners out there on the market. Multiple
companies have expensive products that you can order and have shipped to
you when your local convenient stores carry products that work just fine.
Save yourself the added expense of those products AND shipping only to buy
something that you can easily replace with a household item.
Last of all, I talk about the product that I use for dressing my tires. I
use Optimum's Opti-Bond Tire Gel. You can find it at Optimum's website
(http://www.optimumcarcare.com/obtgel.php). One thing that you will find
out is how cheap the product is for the amount you get. Second, a little
product goes a long way. If you use it as sparingly as I do instead of
gooping it on as some folks like to do, a gallon of that stuff will last
you for a very long time.
The video is 29:21 long so plan accordingly. I am a wordy turd sometimes
and I don't do much editing. During the recording of this video, a hot
chick goes by my garage and I chase after her (we met up after I finished
recording). Of course, me chasing after her is not in the video but I did
include a picture of her for you guys who claim that I never I never show
the hot chicks I'm checking out in my videos. I live close to the
University of Louisville so hot chicks are always strolling past my garage.
So there you go. Finally something for you young and frisky guys (or old
and frisky guys like me). :D

http://www.1ownercarguy.com This is just the second part of the detail
video on this very nice W123 Mercedes Benz 240D. This is mainly a video
showing the steps of buffing and before and after pictures of this car.
Depending on how old the car is and how the paint is buffing usually
requires 2 or 3 stages. On this car it only needed 2 stages. The first one
you use a wool pad and use a more gritty compound to really get into the
paint. The second stage you use a foam pad with a more waxy compound and
this really gives your paint an almost wet look and really brings out the
color. I really enjoy buffing and it is fun to do. Especially when you can
see what kind of a difference it makes.

$1,000,000 Ferrari Restoration Detail
This Ferrari is a good friend and customers car that was flown in the night
before from the UK. It needed a bit of work to get it looking presentable
again, and after a 2 day restoration... shouldn't need anything more than
layers of sealant and wax for the rest of its life. (if cleaned and
maintained properly in the future) This video shows you what I'm thinking
about as I restore a $1 million car, and how understanding the interaction
between different materials will effect the outcome of your work. The
purpose of this video is not about "step by step" demonstration, but
rather a glimpse of what professional detailers think about when working on
extremely rare cars. Thanks for watching and send me an email if you have

Over the past few days we have been working on a special project here at
Chemical Guys-Smart University inside our 'Detailing Arena'. A long time
client of ours personally asked us to prepare his brand new vehicle he had
just purchased for an event he was planning to attend. The vehicle our
client had just purchased was a 2011 Rolls-Royce Ghost in a beautiful color
called diamond black metallic. The client was very concerned about the car
because it was only 3 weeks old with only 500 miles on the clock, yet the
entire vehicle was covered in light wash marring and holograms caused by an
inexperienced detailer using a wool pad on this brand new Ghost.
After a few words with the client and a couple small test spots on the
vehicle, I decided to correct the paint using the new V36 Optical Cut
Polish teamed with a green Hex Logic pad on a Flex 3403 and a Porter Cable
7424XP. The V36 has just enough cut to where I was able to remove all the
wash marring and holograms with only one pass per panel while still being
able to finish down flawlessly, ready to be topped with a wax or sealant.
Being able to fully correct a car with one pad and one product makes paint
correction so much faster and
easier for the operator. On the softer jet black B-pillars, I was able to
use the V38 Optical Final Polish with a black Hex Logic pad to achieve a
flawless, defect-free surface that simply looked amazing.
For me, the best part of V36 and V38 was how easy they are to work with for
the user. The optical grade polishes have a very long work time so I can
keep working the polish for perfect correction of the paint surface.
The Rag Company - The Source for High Quality Microfiber
In this video, I talk about the place to shop for high quality, south
Korean made microfiber towels. These towels are ideal for working on
perfect paint and will NOT scratch your paint whatsoever (unlike they crap
the sell in big box and auto stores). The plush microfiber towels are as
good as the Zaino Borderfree Blond towels that I recommend so now you have
2 sources to get quality manufactured towels.
Best Glass Cleaning Tricks: Bentley CGT
This is a quick video about how to clean your glass during a detailing
session. (specifically the windshield) It all depends on how "dirty" the
glass is...but use as many or as little of these steps that work for your
situation. (you most likely wont always need ALL of these steps, but I
wanted to show you a bunch in one video)
Hope is helps!
