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 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.

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.

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)

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.

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 for Novice to Machine Polishing - Part 1
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.
Junkman's Water Restricted Washing Regime
In this video, I provide a method for washing a car without the assistance
of a water hose. This washing regime consist of two buckets, one with soap
and one with water and three wash mitts. One mitt for the top half of the
car, one mitt for the bottom half of the car and one mitt to rinse with. I
explain how the process is done, along with the products that you will
One thing that I didn't address was the wheels. They can be washed last,
using another washing medium like a 4th mitt from Auto Zone. The following
is a list of the items used in this video, minus the spray bottle. Any
spray bottle will do. Also, the name of the soap has been changed to "The
Perfect Soap" and the link below will take you to that product.

How Much Are the Right Polishes & Compounds Worth?
How about $300K? Don't believe us. We worked on a special project in our
Smart Detailing University inside our trailing center. 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, we decided to correct the paint using the V36 Optical Cutting
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 we were 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, we were 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.
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 you can keep
working the polish for perfect correction of the paint surface. Another
unique feature is that the polishes had zero dust residue. Unlike other
polishes that sling dust powder everywhere as the polish begins to break
down, V36 and V38 both have no dusting effects as the polish works into the
surface. Zero dust from polishing means you don't have to do back over the
car cleaning up dust residue on the surface from inside the cracks and
crevices. You can go straight from polishing to waxing and final wipe down
without spending extra time cleaning up the mess from polishing.
V36 and V38 are impressive with both the working ability and the results of
the product. The product works perfect for low speed polishing and jeweling
of the paint which is very important. V36 and V38 both bring out the flake
and depth of the beautiful black diamond metallic Rolls-Royce paint without
the heavy effort of conventional polishes. After working with the new
Optical Polish line, V36 and V38 will have a perfect spot in your detailing
