Thanks for the welcome!!!

As long as you have a garage, I can work (like protecting that finish ) - one would definately want to have plenty of protection on the car during the rainy season.

That just might be a winner..With 6 months of little else to do besides watch it rain, leaning some tricks to keep the car looking its best may be just the way to spend a rainy day..

Not at all. All are welcome.

I will give a class on how to care for the paint, DOs & DON"Ts, and after that there will be a demo on what it takes to correct paint, and after that you can take a pc, flex, or a rotary for a test drive.

AND, what ever questions one may have I'll try to answer.

First I want to thank Mike from Pro-Tek Automotive for hosting this great event.


I was ready for the class

Click the image to open in full size.


The class was going pretty well and I think all 12 who attanded had a great time.

Click the image to open in full size.

After teaching how to properly maintain autopaint I was able to demonstrate paint correction on a 2006 carbon black M3 that was in need of some TLC. I chose the trunk area, as this part of the car always seems to be the worst. And this car didn't dissapoint. There were cobwebs, swirls and many random isolated deep scratches. (RIDS)

I taped off the trunk in the middle. Chose the right side.

First I used the PCXP and an orange pad with Meg's 105 for one pass. (One pass means that the polish was worked in until it was completely broken down)

While the gloss improved most imperfection were still there. (no surprise there)

Next came the Flex 3401 DA machine with the same orange pad. Here we had better luck with the swirls and cobwebs after one pass but the RIDS stayed as those proved to be very deep as I found out later on.


At this point I switched to the Flex rotary and a black wool pad with Meg's 105.
At 2100 rpm it took many passes to completely eliminate all RIDS.

The end result was a pretty perfect section but we still had some holograms to tackle as this was a very agressive combo.

To get a perfect finish, I used the FLEX 3401 and the same orange pad with Meg's 105 to further refine the finish. (speed 6)

The following step was the FLex 3401 again but this time with a green light polishing pad an HD UNO polish. (speed 6 again)

At this point the finish looked pretty glossy but I still wanted to improve things still and used Chemical Guys' Wet Mirror Finish on the FLEX 3401 again and a blue finishing pad.

Wax of choice was Magic Wax.

I apologise for not having better pictures to show off each step or the finished product for that matter this time, but the focus was on the people who were at the class.

PS: the smearing you see on the polished side is due to the wax not having enough time to cure.

Thank you for the class Thomas. I learned a lot and was very impressed by your knowledge. I would definitely recommend you to anyone needing detailing.
