Best Tricks for Clay Bar on Rough Paint.
This weeks "Ride-Along" video discusses a mysterious reoccurring problem on a 2013 Porsche Cayenne turbo. Unexplained weekly paint continuation is examined with the Dinolite Microscope is hopes of understanding what is causing this excessive build-up. See the difference in the paint from clear bra vs non clear bra, on a new Porsche under a microscope. I also introduce the nano-skin "clay" pad used with a DA polisher.

How to Wash your car in Winter: Ferrari F40
Here are 3 techniques you can use to wash your car (whether heavy, medium, or light dirt) when in the winter months, no access to a hose, or live in an apartment building. The process is more time consuming than traditional washing and should be used as a great "second best option" scenario. Thx for watching!





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 Wash a $2 Million Ferrari: Prep + Polish (Part 1)
This is a 1967 275 GTB/4. I absolutely love this special car! Based on emails and comments received during my last Ferrari restoration (288 GTO), everyone wanted to know the steps I take BEFORE I begin the compound/polish etc stage. What facts need to be understood prior to apply any product or machine... The information gathered before repairing the paint will dictate how you decide what products/abrasives (or not) to use to remove the minimal amount of surface (clear or single) to save the "working life" of the paint. Remember, pro-detailers get paid... not for how much they "remove", but for how much they "leave" intact. -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. larry@ammonyc.com

How to Touch up your Paint
Part 2 of the Vandalized Hood video talks about ONE way to touch up this scratch. (People have many different ways to touch up the paint that they feel comfortable with...this is just one way I do it. It's not the only way) More time was needed to fully complete this particular process, but as this was a friends car, it needed to be returned within 24 hours. I hope everyone learns bits of helpful info that can be used on their car someday. Thanks again for watching and send me emails if you have any questions I can answer. Thx! larry@ammonyc.com





Rupes Bigfoot Polisher vs Griots DA Polisher
This is a quick and "broad" discussion about the evolution of polishing machines with a focus on the Griots DA and new Rupes Bigfoot. (there are many other polishers I've left out of this discussion for the time being) I think it important to understand the progression of paint restoration as it applies to the detailing community. It's very exciting to watch our industry grow rapidly and see the expansion of tools that combine the necessary power (in terms of correction) with fundamental simplicity (meaning anyone can use it safely). Can't wait to see whats next! -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

How to Remove Water Spots and Calcium/Lime Deposits
This is a clients daily driver that was left in a parking garage in NYC. It's common for the lime/calcium deposits to fall from the ceiling and cause issues on the paint if left untreated for long periods of time. Hope this gives you and idea of what "type of chemical" can help remove or loosen the contaminants. (FYI: I used a directional microphone instead of my normal mic because I wanted to pic up the "texture sound" of the calcium.) Thx for watching! -L





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
