    After demonstrating how to properly apply a paint cleaner like ScratchX by hand, we then learned the proper techniques for using the G100 Dual Action Polisher to remove swirls.



    The below photo shows the scratch and swirl reduction by hand using ScratchX.




    The below photos show the swirls before in the untouched upper left hand corner, then the section we used ScratchX on the upper right hand corner, and the bottom section which we machine cleaned with the G100.





    If these pictures look impressive using the flash of the camera, you should have seen the results in person like these guys were able to...

    After inspecting the results, we drove the car back into the garage and while Eric, aka HamandCheese, removed some of the more serious defects using a Makita rotary buffer with some M83 Dual Action Cleaner Polish while others tried their hand on the hood and others areas using Meguiar's G100 dual action polisher.

    After the defects were removed, Randy applied a coat of NXT Tech Wax in the paste version and then removed it to reveal a finish more beautiful than when he first purchased it!

    Great work!

    Now I could really go for the seat that HamandCheese is using.
    Looks like it might be good for the back........I could store lunch under it too.

    It's hamanncheese. But certainly a play on words. My girlfriend Melissa aka "clayingmachine" made that up for me! For those of you who don't know, Hamann is a german bmw tuner that IMHO makes one of the nicest rims ever (pg2)!



    And yes, the stool works really well when doing vertical panels. It really helps out my back, and plus you can keep your products + beer right underneath you!
