How to Wet Sand a Water Mark in Black Paint
This is a black E39 M5 that I restored in a full day. However, I decided to work the trunk last because it had water marks and "Bird Poo" stains burned in. (At this point in the job I was completely Exhausted but wanted to get it on camera as I've had a bunch of questions about how to remove this type of damage from viewers.) Also, I'm trying to prove a point that a microfiber cutting pad can remove 2500 grit...which is CRAZY! Normally, I would wet-sand the panel to 3000, 4000, and even 5000 before attempting to remove with a microfiber pad. At this point, I'm testing the cutting power of the pad to learn how strong this particular pad was. (Normally, a wool pad would be used for ease and speed in this case) Remember there are 3 levels of water stains. This was level 3 or the worst stage. Level 1 is when you leave the car outside in a quick sun shower (or sprinkler) and it can be wiped off with spray wax. Level 2 is when you need to use spray wax and a clay bar to remove the contaminants. Level 3 is when you have to level the paint (wet sand or compound) to remove the stain. Hope this helps! -L

How to Restore a Black 996 Porsche Track Car
This is a buddies car that I needed to restore after many years of track days and little to no detailing/cleaning. In this longer video, I discuss the different steps and products used to restore the paint to near perfection. I also introduce a few new products for "claying" your paint, and show the differences between a rotary polisher and DA polisher. (It is a bit on the long side, but its important to understand the thought process behind paint correction prior to working on a difficult job such as a Porsche 996 in black.) Hope this is helpful. Send me emails if you have additional questions. Thanks guys. -L

Deep Scratch Removal
This is a highdef video. Click on the 720 at the bottom right side of the video for better veiwing. I just removed some pretty bad scratches on a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee as everyone can see. First I started off using 2000 grit wet/dry sandpaper to remove the paint damage because I did not want to push the clear coat. Second I used a wool pad and Meguiars Diamond Cut compound to remove the sanding marks. Third I used Stereo Glaze #2 which is a polish/brightener. Remember the more you polish the brighter the clearcoat becomes. Last I used a clear coat sealer. I dont use wax because it breaks down at 100 to 160 degrees and melts like a candle over a period of 1 two 2 weeks, thus leaving your investment unprotected. I like the clear coat sealer over wax because it has a temp rating of 1500 degrees and last 12 months providing real protection on the clearcoat. I just got back from Wrights Highend Detailing Academy located in Jacksonville, Florida. I learned a lot down there and even though my video is not perfect you can clearly see that I am capable of removing deep scratches. Here is the website of my instructor. http://www.wrightsmobiledetail.com/ Martin Wright is a world renouned refinishing master and is also my Trainer. He has Parkinsons and several other disabilies. What Im trying to say is despite Martins health, he is considered one of the best. I also encourage everyone to visit my trainers youtube page. http://www.youtube.com/user/m22wright There you will find many videos that can help you out with most problems that you may encounter. A Big Thanks Martin for the training and the advice that you continue to give me. Just want to give a special thanks to my Youtube fans and viewers.
