Clay: The Best Tool in Your Garage! - /DRIVE CLEAN
Detailing clay was first use in the mid-80's in Japan and not introduced to the US until early 90's. Japanese body shops found that a mixture of various "sticky" resins would remove the over-spray from the surface of the paint without the use of compound or aggressive chemicals. Since then, clay has progressed into a more durable, softer, and safer product that will remove contaminants from the surface of the clear coats. Over-spray, tree sap, road gunk, brake dust, industrial fallout, etc...will embed itself into the paint, causing it to feel rough or "bumpy". These contaminates are sitting on top of the paint and can safely be removed with the use of clay. However, clay will not remove scratches because scratches are IN the paint....not ON the paint. Although being very easy to use, clay can damage your paint if re-used after it falls on the ground. Check out the video for do's an dont's of claying, and why I consider it the best tool in my garage. Check out www.ammoNYC.com for links to all the products used in this episode.





Polishers and Swirl Removal Tips -- /DRIVE CLEAN
Check out http://www.ammonyc.com for your PDF "Polisher & Swirl Removal Guide". Scratches and swirls are most commonly caused by improper car washing and care. When contaminants are not properly lifted away, they act as little grains of sandpaper. As you drag them across the paint, they leave behind very fine "love marks". This week on DRIVE CLEAN, we demonstrate how a dual action polisher, cutting pad, and compound or polish, can help you correct these fine scratches. Using the right combination of tools will allow you to re-level the paint and eliminate any visual defects; leaving a finish that is smooth as glass. http://www.youtube.com/ammonycdotcom http://www.facebook.com/ammonyc Instagram @AMMONYC Twitter @AMMO_NYC Tumblr @AMMONYC Google+ AMMO NYC





Paint Chip Touch-up -- /DRIVE CLEAN
Visit http://www.ammonyc.com and download your free PDF guide on "How to Touch-Up Your Paint". Every time you head out for a drive, there is a risk that road or track debris will chip your paint. Should this affect the frequency and intensity with which you drive? We don't think so. This week on DRIVE CLEAN, we teach you the basic techniques for paint chip repair. While the chips are esthetically painful, what's even more painful is the rust that will form from leaving them uncovered. With patience and proper application the results of your correction can be surprising. Most importantly, the substrate is once again protected from oxidization. http://www.youtube.com/ammonycdotcom http://www.facebook.com/ammonyc Instagram: @AMMONYC

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. larry@ammonyc.com

Best Paint Touch-up Tricks: Mercedes G55
This is one of the worst key scratches I have ever seen. This car needed to be repainted, but I thought I would give it a shot...nothing to lose. It covered 3 separate door panels with varying depth levels. 98% of the 9 feet was through the clear coat, paint, base, and into the substrate. EXTREMELY bad scratch. In this episode, I discuss multiple ways to approach this type of paint damage. I want to be crystal clear: THIS CAR NEEDED TO BE REPAINTED FOR 90-100% satisfaction. My techniques here, with the understanding of the customer, had the best-case final results of 70% to 75% "better or touched-up" appearance. See how it turned out. Thx for watching! -L





$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. larry@ammonyc.com -Larry
