light to check out imperfections.

probably no more group deals on detailing for awhile.

Amazing job as always!

Quick question, could you have polished out those imperfections with an orbital polisher (Portal-Cable) or do you need a rotary when the paint is that bad.

I'm getting ready to polish a car with similar imperfections and I'm wondering if I'd be wasting my time trying to do it with my Portal-Cable.

Thanks!

Yes it can be done, it'll take longer for sure so pace yourself and prepare to spend the whole saturday to do the whole car using Porter-Cable. If you don't have that much time do the hood, 2 fenders and 2 front doors and leave the rest for next time. But wax the polished sections.

Phil shows you the list of ingredient for polishing, Menz polish + LC pads (I assume he uses orange with SIP and white with PO85RD).
Practice and check the video on his side, you'll be fine. It takes a long time to polish 2'x2' section using PC so again don't be impatient.
Good luck and check back if you have any more questions.

ummmmm....WOW, magnificent. (washed with rocks!! )

When you used the p21s on the engine bay, what precautions did you take for the electrical system? What should we do for the X5's?
Also, what did you use on the black exterior plastic trim, like the side mirrors and the engine bay? SORRY, just read the Black WOW.

Thanks

the engines today are really water resistant.

I didn't cover anything.

the trim was cleaned with P21S Total Autowash and then dressed with Black WOW

Let me know if you have any other questions.

So what do you use the Adam's In and Out for? I figured you'd just spray down the entire engine compartment. What is your process for engine dressing?
