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

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.

Junkman's 2-Bucket Wash Technique - Part 1
This 5-part video series covers the correct way to properly wash your car
without creating damage within your paint. It does absolutely no good to
repair your paint if you continue to do the things that created the damage
in the first place. Incorrect washing and dust removal are the two main
practices that create the swirls and scratches that you see in paint today.
By following the practices in these videos, you can eliminate the
possibility of creating paint damage while washing your car.
Foam Gun: Foamaster by Gilmour (half-gallon size) from Amazon.
Foam Gun Soap: DP's Xtreme Foam Formula.
Bucket Soap: The Perfect Soap from Gary Dean.
Spray Wand: Wash and Rinse by Bonaire (Walmart or Sears).
Buckets: Grit Guard.
Bucket Inserts: Grit Guard.
Quick Disconnects: Any home improvement store.
Dryer: Electric leaf blower from Sears ($30).
Wash Mitts: Knobby wash mitt from Auto Zone.
Spray Nozzle: Multi-select nozzle from Sears.
A GARAGE WITH A DRAIN. You cannot wash your car outdoors without the soap
drying up too fast and without creating a boat load of water spots on your
paint. If you don't have a garage to wash in, then you need to wash at
night. Any other time is just going to create water spots, even in the
How The Junkman Removes Bird Dropings and Love Bugs
In this one hour video, I go into detail about how I remove love bugs (that
commit suicide on your front bumper and mirrors), and bird droppings that
have sat on the paint for a period of time. As you will see in the video,
the removal process is quite easy for me due to the fact that one: my paint
is in excellent condition and is not all swirled up from improper washing,
touching or dust removal. Two: I use wax to PROTECT my paint (and NOT for
shine, which comes from POLISHING my paint). The combination of nearly
perfect paint and the use of wax keeps the process of removing these two
undesirable situations fairly easy for me. The procedure for fixing both
issues if damage does occur is the same, although I did not have to get
into any type of advanced repair like wet sanding. That may happen in a
future video if I run across a car with that kind of damage.
The real important part of making this repair easy is the correcting of
your paint. If the bug guts and bird dropping have no scratches to seep
into, then it is harder for the damage to etch into the clear coat. Thus,
perfecting your paint is a must if you want to have the same amount of
success that I have. I cannot stress that enough.
If you go through the trouble of repairing your paint and then protecting
it with wax, you too will find that removing this type of damage is nothing
but a walk in the park. You will see how easy it is for me and you too can
experience the same ease of removal for yourself.
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.
DAS6 da machine polishing toyota supra
hi all, ive been wanting to get into machine polishing for sometime but
have taken time out to study tutorial videos first before i get started.
this video is the very first time ive try it. ive watched maybe 15hrs of
videos so i feel about as ready as im going to be.
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.
Junkman Discusses Sealant/Wax Application - Including the Hype!
In this video, I go into a detailed discussion about sealants, the
application of the sealant that I'm using and the hype associated with
waxes and their claim to make your paint shine. Wax is a protectant. That
is the only thing that I use wax for. I get all the shine that I'm going to
get out of my paint from polishing it. In this video, I start with my paint
perfectly polished and then I add the sealant. As you will see, there will
be no difference with the before and after shots once I'm done. This proves
my point. Polishing creates the shine in your paint and wax protects the
shine you get from polishing.
Sit back and be amazed as everything you've heard about waxes gets
$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
any questions. firstname.lastname@example.org
Scratch Removal with Meguiar's Polishes, HD & Lake Country Pads
In this video, I am working in a situation where it is hot in my garage and
humid outside. This weather combination can lead to the polishes that I use
creating dust. What I do in this video is use Meguiar's M205, which has a
nice long working time with virtually no dusting issues. In a hot and humid
situation, the M105 & M205 combination is what I like to go with. I also
use a High Definition Car Care green pad to remove the initial damage. The
pad is a cutting/polishing pad so it's leaves behind a very small amount of
paint correction damage. I chose that pad because I needed a little more
cut than what a white pad would have given me, but less cut than what a
orange pad would have provided. I follow that pad with a blue Lake Country
polishing pad to clean up the ever so slight haze that the HD pad leaves
behind. I could have followed the green HD pad with a blue HD pad but I
didn't have one handy.
I used Meguiar's #9 on the blue Lake Country pad that I used but I could
have easily stayed with the M205 and used it on the blue pad instead. I
chose the #9 because it provides less cut than M205. It's almost 6 of one,
a half a dozen of the other. I'm basically experimenting just to see how
well it works. It turned out well as you will see in the video.
This video is more about you looking in on me doing what I do, as well as
my way of offering something up to the folks who cannot easily or cheaply
get some of the other products that I use. It's also important that you
realize that my technique is much more important than the names on the
bottles. Technique trumps product every day of the week. I would say that
it is more about how you use what you use because using a good product with
a lousy technique is going to yield lousy results.
This video is my way of allowing you inside my mindset and seeing the way I
work. Normally, this would be something that I do in my garage and nobody
would ever know. I'm sharing my thoughts on things as well as WHY I do some
of the things that I do and WHY I'm using the products that I'm using. As
you will glean from this video, there are multiple products that I can use
in order to achieve my usual, excellent results. I choose to keep various
product lines in my garage so that I can address various scenarios. If you
do this type of work long enough, you will find out that some product
PERFORM better than others in a given situation. That's not a question
about what will work as a lot of products will get the job done, but more
of a question about which product will get the job done with the least
amount of headaches. Your experience with this type of paint work is just
as important as what you use also. After all, you want as positive of an
experience as possible.
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.
