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 Remove Glue and Stickers from your Paint

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 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

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

BLEACH Damage on Black Paint!
This is a quick video about a buddies Mercedes CLS that had bleach accidentally ("misted") on the nose of the car during a gutter/roof/shutters cleaning. We noticed white-haziness along with dots of heavier penetration. Here is what I found out during the visit. I was happily surprised AMMO SKIN did its job extremely well. Find out what happened... (I've never heard of a case like this before...so I had to film it) FYI: I had a bunch of people walking around me who were still working on the house, so excuse the brevity and slightly awkwardness. I didn't want to make the workers feel worse than they already did, so I tried to be on the DL. Lastly, towards the end of the video, I describe the difference between paint SEALANT and WAX. If you understand this concept, you will be 10x better at caring for your car. As always, shoot me an email if you have any questions or ideas. Thx! 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
