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
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.

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
