9 hours of paint correction to get ..........

..... this.

Sorry I don't have any before and after pics. The paint on my car had more swirl marks then Rosie O'Donnel has chins. I will get some close ups of what it looks like now this evening if I get time. I just forgot to take them when I went out to shoot these photos. I fail.

Here is what the car got.

1. Wash in Adams Car Shampoo.
2. Mequairs Clay Bar.
3. Adams Swirl & Haze Remover applied via PC with a yellow pad.
4. Adams Machine Polish applied via PC with a white pad.
5. Adams Buttery Wax.

9 hours later I got this:
1.


2.


3.


4.


5.


6.

I like them a lot. Some will say their is better out there, and that is true. However, I can pick up Adams locally here at Summit. That is a huge advantage to me. Plus the cost is not bad. I also like that they do not dust bad at all. They go on easy, and come off easy.

Looks good man. Only 9 hours huh? takes me about 20 hours to wash, clay, 105, 205, 85rd, and wax. That inlcluded the rims as well tho.

Good work speedy

If I had Summit close to me, I would use Adam's more I bet. I wish I lived in FL near Autogeek Lol. I would never have money then tho.

Yeah, I got lucky. The clay process did not take long at all since I had done it already a couple months ago. The Adams worked great. I need to do a little more work on the trunk though. I still have some deeper marks that I could not get out easily with the Swirl and Haze remover. I need something a little more aggresive.

20 hours? I don't think I have ever spent 20 hours on paint correction.

He is slow. Give him a break.

On a side note, how do you like the pics? Opinions?

keep in mind I have only done a full scale paint correction 2 times and each time I used a different product line. Im sure next time it will not take as long.

MP, get some 105/205 if you need something more aggresive. Stuff is amazing.

I plan on picking up some up and throwing it on a yellow pad. I am gonna hit the trunk and hood one good time with it. Luckily that will not take too long.

Try an orange pad first. So far I have not met something 105/orange can not tackle. I am having some trouble with swirls caused by a rotary on my new hood atm. I may try my yellow pad on it followed by an orange tho.
