    Big "A" Detailing 08 Civic Removing Overspray By Hand Compounding on You Tube

    The customer spray tinted his tail lights without removing them first. The trunk, driver quarter & rear bumper had heavy overspray. I removed the wing to get to everything.
    It was friday night & I had a ton of work lined up for the next day.
    This was the quickest way to remove the overspray. I misted water on the surface first & then rubbed in the compound with a micro fiber towel. By hand compounding the entire car I got the paint to about 85% which was the goal for this job. I used Meguiars M205 Polish then 3M Ultrafine Polish with my Dewalt DW849 rotary.
    I put on the first coat of Klasse @ 12:14am & let it cure for a half hour then removed it. I laid on another coat of Klasse around 12:45am & left it there & called it a night!
    Humberto come in @ 7am to remove the tape & Klasse & get the car ready for an early morning pickup!
    We clayed, hand compounded, clayed, hand compounded till the overspray was all off. I cant tell you why it was done this way but it worked =)
    I didnt take out the halogens on the whole car, just the areas that had overspray. With the halogens on its easier to see the overspray.

    Wow lots of work! Looks great. But I gotta ask. How come there is no tint on his "tinted" tail lights?
