View Full Version : Meguair's Educational Video

I posted this in Detailing 101 as well, sorry for the double post.

What does this video cover. I have read the product description on the E-Store, but was looking for a little more detailed information. What I am looking for basically is a "how to use a rotary buffer." I have the G-100 but want to take the next step to a better finish. I am sure that I could learn a lot regardless of what is on the video, but showing the basic steps of how to use a rotary would be awesome.

If it does not explain much in terms of rotary use, can anyone direct me someplace I could pick something like that up?

I've read a lot of the information on the topic of mastering the rotary, but still have no idea as far as where to start. My goal was to get the Makita 9227 and a salvage body panel and start, but I don't want to go at it blindly.

Thanks for any help/information.

as far as i remember..... :

customer satisfaction

your working environment

washing a car correctly

evaluating the surface

choosing the correct procedure to remove defects

hand and machine sanding techniques

removing sanding marks by machine

removing defects by machine

resotring gloss by machine

removing swirls by machine

ultimate wipe MFT description

and final polishing and protection.

you'll find what you're looking for. trust me. but some tips I can give you to start your way on mastering this tool are:

find a car with very neglected paint and practice your skills on it.

start safely: no more than 1200RPM's and use foam polishing pads as max aggressiveness. regarding products, keep it up until M80 (cutting power 4). as your skills improve, step up to higher abrasive levels (M83,84,85) and more aggressive pads (foam cutting or wool pads), and try never to exceed 1800RPM's on the rotary to prevent paint burning.

keep in mind most rotary buffer tips shown on the video, especially the one that sohws you how to pick up your product like a pro.

and as a last tip, be sure to study all kinds of possible defects, its causes, and the best ways to remove them safely. I say this because if you have a very good buffer technique, but lack knowledge in defect removal, then you can overbuff places and make undesirable mistakes. but when you master both subjects, you'll get the job done with superior results your customers will love if you dedicate to detailing, or that will make you bery proud

hope this helps :)
