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 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.
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 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

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.
Car polishing (& grinding), Save time & $$$ (Dollars)
Some good tips on Car polishing (& grinding), Save time & $$$. You don't
need the expensive "miracle" waxes and polishes. What is required is the
right polisher and methods to do the job quickly & safely. This is simple
DIY type methods to do a near professional quality job of polishing a car
or removing haze on headlights, without paying a lot of money for the tools
to do the job right.
It does pay to buy a Professional quality polisher rather than cheap
tools. Polishing glaze, plenty of water and a light touch can bring out a
super shine with minimal effort. Use 24 or 16 grit grinding wheels so
plastic grips better. Usually it is better to buy 10 inch grinding discs
vs 7 inch grinding wheels, since you can cut down the larger grinding wheel
to the smaller 7 inch grinder after the outer edge is worn down.
Btw, when you finish up polishing, switch to a polishing bonnet and
polishing glaze to remove the swill marks left behind by the polisher.
Use plenty of water so you don't burn the paint and keep the polisher
speed low. Keep cleaning the polisher has the polishing wheel clogs up.
