    Re: Batmobile Show Car Makeover - Pictures & Comments

    Just got back from a day at the Batcave and all I can say is WOW and Ouch. The car is WOW(ing)?, everything works, bat phone, lots of cool parts and toys. Ouch for the paint job though. If I heard correctly from Mike, the paint is a Single Stage Enamel on fiberglass panels. Paint is maybe 6-7 years old. Lots of swirls and very scratch sensative. Test panels showed that M105 by Rotary with a yellow Polishing Pad followed by #82 by DA with a yellow Polishing pad worked best. Upon further testing and 2 hours of many different combinations, Mike, Nick and Jason Rose went to town with PRC on a Wool Pad and I followed behind with a DA and #82. Further on and after doing about half the car Mike switched to 105 again with a Wool Pad and so did Nick.

    Were not going for totally flawless finish as this is a daily driver.

    Well I need some sleep so I can make the drive back up there tomorrow.

    See everybody tomorrow!!

    Just a note...

    Was hoping to add pictures to the thread as we go but it's too time intensive to do this so we'll start adding pictures tomorrow.

    It's also hard to upload photos with a buffer in your hands...

    Thanks!

    Meguiar's Customer Care Center is in the building across the parking lot from our main building, meaning we can look down into the garage......sorry, BatCave..... and see Mike, Ryan and Nick working on the Batmobile during the day. It's a bit surreal, but when the work day ends today the fun will start in earnest!!

    Wow!!! Being there is a thousand times better than looking through the pics.

    Don't worry, I have over 1gb of pics to sort through sometime.
