    Pictures from Meguiar's June 2nd, 2018 Intro to Paint Care & D/A Polishing Class

    This past Saturday we had a great group for another Intro to Paint Care & D/A Polishing Class. Today we worked on a 2013 Chevrolet Corvette.







    After wiping down the light dust with our Quik Detailer Mist & Wipe, we used our Smooth Surface Clay Kit to remove the bonded above surface contaminants. It was then time to inspect the paint under good lighting. We used a combination of the overhead florescents in our garage, and our Scangrip Handheld.









    Ultimate Compound on our DFC5 Soft Buff DA Foam Cutting Disc was our first attempt. This eliminated much of the more shallow cobweb looking swirl marks, but there was still some random deep scratches left behind.






    We gave it a second go in the same area with the same combination, and it was very close to our goal, with just some of the deeper scratches still apparent. After discussing among the group, and everyone cheering me on to break out our DA Microfiber Cutting Disc, we did, and everyone agreed it would be a better approach, than having to do Ultimate Compound on red foam multiple times in every area. We ended up on M100 Pro Speed Compound with our DMC5 DA Microfiber Cutting Disc.




    But wait! What could this be! Yikes is that yellow paint? Burn through? Well after catching our breathe, there was no indication of of a burn through on the area we compounded, so my next thought was tinted clear. We did indeed confirm this was a tinted clear coat. Yes, there is yellow pigment in the clear coat paint. We are seeing more and more manufacturers looking to make their paint systems unique to the competition, and tinted clear coats is one approach that is becoming more common.









    Sticking with Mirror Glaze, M205 Ultra Finishing Polish was used on our DFP5 Soft Buff DA Foam Polishing Disc for the finish polishing step.





    After a coat of Ultimate Liquid Wax, the owner parked the vehicle in the sun for the final results!

    Thanks for sharing Eddie! I tried to embed the video but it didn't work. Maybe because the link is private?
