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!
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 Meguiar's Professional Mirror Glaze Training Video
What began over a century ago as a simple furniture polish laboratory and
plant in the garage of founder Frank Meguiar Jr., now spans three
generations of Meguiar family stewardship. Meguiar's Inc. has become one of
the world's leading surface care products companies, providing highly
specialized products for almost every conceivable type of surface.
In his wildest dreams, it's doubtful that Frank Meguiar Jr., could have
foreseen what his bottle of furniture polish in 1901 would evolve into over
the next 100 years. When he first began, he made one bottle of polish at a
time using an eggbeater. Eventually, with the help of his kids, he was able
to produce enough product at night to fill the next day's orders and pay
From his first bottle of furniture polish, Frank Meguiar Jr. was
steadfastly determined never to sell a product unless he was convinced it
was the very best of its kind on the market. To this day, the family
follows that dictate and, as a result, is the number one selling car guy
wax in America with the highest consumer loyalty. Meguiar's diversified
product line is distributed in over 92 countries worldwide and consists of
more than 300 different cleaners, polishes, waxes, conditioners, and
protectants for homes, cars, boats, trains, planes, and almost every other
type of surface.

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.

Best Interior Detailing Tricks: Leather and Plastics
This is a filthy Honda Accord which is perfect to demonstrate 3 different
approaches to leather cleaning. The 3 techniques are "options" that might
work for whatever car (based on condition, age, material, etc) you are
working with. These are simply techniques, options, or "suggestions" of how
I would ASSESS the current condition, then TEST each approach on the
material. Please use caution on any interior surface when your restoring
its condition. (In this case, its modern leather)
I hope this is a helpful discussion for everyone to see how leather and
most plastics might be cleaned. (in this particularly bad scenario)
Thanks for watching. As always, send me an email if I can be helpful.
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

wanted to show you a bunch in one video)
Hope is helps!

Buffing and Wash Tips DIY Learn Quick Tips Tricks Restore Cars Paint This
is the next step in our detail process where we buff the car. The paint on
this car was very dry and is not going to come out perfect but as you see
in the video the process that we use makes these cars look the best they
can. I do a 2 stage buffing process on cars especially older ones like
this. The first stage we use a wool pad with a more gritty compound to take
all the years of wear and tear off. The second stage I use a foam pad and a
smoother compound the really gives the paint a deeper and shinier look.
Everybody is going to have their own way of doing stuff and this is just
the way that we do it here. As you can see it makes a huge difference on
the paint and really brings the car back to life.

Part 1: How to Wetsand, Cut & Buff Custom Paint
Part 1: How to Wetsand a Muscle Car
Mike Phillips teams up with Bruno Massel the 2012 NHRA Comp Eliminator
National Champion and co-host of Truck U on Speed Channel to lead a team of
people to fully wetsand, cut and buff a brand new "House of Kolor" paint
job on a 1967 AMC AMX Muscle Car.
To help see this project through to success we have a number of sponsors we
would like to thank for their contributions.
Dennis Povio, the Senior Account Representative has offered to supply all
the sanding products will need including 3M wet/dry sanding papers, backing
pads and Trizact Sanding Discs.
Flex North America
Bob Eichelberg, the President of Flex Power Tools North America will be
supplying Flex Rotary Buffers and Dual Action Polishers to do all the
machine cutting and polishing.
Jeff Silvers, President of Menzerna USA will be providing all the compounds
and polishes for compounding and polishing the paint to perfection. This
will include the brand new Fast Gloss 400 Compound or FG 400.
Lake Country Pad Manufacturers
Eric Dunn, the Senior Account Manger for Lake Country Manufacturing will be
providing all the wool and foam cutting pads needed for each of the
compounding and polishing steps all the way through the project.
Max McKee, the President and CEO of Autogeek.net and Palm Beach Motoring
Group will be providing products from the Pinnacle Natural Brilliance Line
for adding all the finishing touches inside and out to create a true,
rolling work of art. Max has also waived the traveling and on-location
appearance fees for Yancy and me.
The wonderful family behind the Grit Guard company, Doug, Luan, Chris and
Alli are sending a Grit Guard Universal Pad Wash and Detailing Cart.
One of the most important things Mike teaches in all his classes is the
importance of working clean and when it comes to doing the compounding and
polishing steps to BLACK paint after a full wetsand process it's vitally
important to clean your pads often, especially during the compounding step
when using wool cutting pads with rotary buffers.

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.
