    Man what a fun class we had this past weekend! We hosted the Southern California Woody Club for a private Saturday Intro to Paint Care & D/A Polishing Class. Not much says Southern California like a cool Ford Woody!









    After the classroom session, we headed out into the garage.



    We demonstrated on this beautiful light blue woody. We first wiped down with Quik Detailer & then taped down some sensitive trim areas. We were not particularly concerned about damaging these trims areas, we more so did this so we would not get compound residue stuck in the cracks/crevices. It is much easier to take a little time to tape off, opposed to typically much more time to clean up trim areas after. The one area we were a bit concerned about was the painted hinge area in the middle of the hood. We did not necessarily want to "bang" into that area when we were working on the hood, not pictured below, but we did tape off this area once we started buffing, so we did not have to worry much about hitting that area.



    Jim says "go easy on me!"



    We of course then used our Smooth Surface Clay Kit to remove the light above surface contaminants.





    We often like to pull our demo vehicle out into the sun prior to buffing, to get a good look at the below surface defects in the paint.







    We started with Ultimate Compound on our DFP5 Soft Buff Yellow Foam Polishing Disc. Very light defect removal. Not enough.



    We stepped up to Ultimate Compound via DFC5 Soft Buff Red Foam Cutting Disc. Moderate defect removal. Fairly harder paint. Not enough cut.



    We ended up stepping up to our D/A Microfiber Cutting Disc along with our D300 D/A Microfiber Correction Compound. Originally designed for factory cured OEM paint, it's proven it works well on most any type of glossy paint, in this case, a custom paint job.





    And the below was our result! Absolutely obliterated all of the defects & left very minimal D/A Haze. Regarding the progression of our test spot. To explain in further detail, Ultimate Compound on yellow removed a small amount of the light coweb type swirl marks. Ultimate Compound on red foam removed about 80% of the coweb type swirl marks, but what was revealed underneath was a plethora of random scratches. The Ultimate Compound on red foam only removed a moderate amount of these random scratches. The below was after DMC5 via MT300 with D300 D/A Microfiber Correction Compound.



    Jim, the owner, absolutely rocked it on the D/A! So fun for me as an instructor/trainer to watch someone who has never used a D/A before perform a near perfect section pass.



    Other members of the club were reluctant to buff on Jim's car so we set up some panels to try the machine out on.



    So Cal Woody Club Member says "Hey I'll buff the rest for ya!" with his 849 & Wool Pad in hand




    We decided to polish with M205 Ultra Finishing Polish, and then applied a coat of Ultimate Liquid Wax. Let's pull it in the sun!



    It was fair to say the entire class including myself was BLOWN AWAY at the before & after results. The clarity & color was literally a different shade.







    When you have Cool Cars, Great People, So Cal Weather, and a car that responds perfectly, it makes for a FUN DAY!!! Thanks for coming everyone & spread the word, we would be happy to have you back next year!

    AAGH! Massive flash backs seeing those woodies. All I can hear is Beach Boys and Dick Dale music in my old head. Then seeing the owners...damn, I AM old! LOL.

    BTW, I am from SoCal (back in the days).

    On topic, NICE work.
