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. Please leave a comment if you have any ideas why this excessive contamination might be occurring on a weekly basis. Thanks everyone! -L





How to Remove Glue and Stickers from your Paint
This is a friends race car that was recently purchased from another race team and in need of some cleaning. In this episode, I show how that a microfiber cutting pad can be used to remove rubber marks and residue glue from the sticker removal process. This trick will save you time IF you are compounding/polishing the paint anyways. I also show proper technique for safe and easy sticker removal from your vehicles paint without destroying the clear coat or your finger tips! :)





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

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

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





Trick to cleaning perforated leather car seats
This video is for a subscriber of my channel. He asked about cleaning perforated leather seats and how the approach might be different. Great Question! Be sure to apply Lather Interior Cleanser to to the BRUSH, and not spray directly cleaner directly on the perforations. Afterwards, quickly vacuum or turn on the ventilated seats (if equipped) -L

Concours Secret Tricks: "At the show prep"
Here are a few tricks for prepping a car immediately BEFORE and DURING a concours or car show. (Assuming the paint resto has been done beforehand. Notice, I do not use any machines during the prep) The second half of the video discusses how to get the best pop from paint, wheels, and glass once you arrive at the show. Similar to "primping" a show-dog before they trot around the judges...(meaning the car looks great already...how can we squeeze the last bit beauty minutes before we are on stage) Hope this gives you some idea of how to stand out from the pack. (pun intended) --L
