25hrs for correction? did you take a hour break between each panel
I think the reason is because he was going for total perfection, and the car had just come back from the dealership. It probally was swirled and hologramed to hell and back.

From what I hear, the 2010+ has a lout of curves and body lines, which makes it hard to polish. I am sure that this, plus the desired outcome, resulted in a very long polishing process.

Looks really good Danny. I wish I had a 2011 5.0 so bad Lol.

No breaks man, only to eat lunch and dinner, the clear on coat on the 2011 Mustangs are a nano ceramic clear coat and is extremely hard. So removing the defects took a very long time. And as Justin said it was in very bad condition there were wet sanding marks still on the panels that were repaired all those had to be removed. I had to actually go out and buy a 3M Suberbuff III wool pad 3/4 of the way on compounding to get the job done. Not only that I live in El Paso where it is really dry and hot it was in the 90's with no humidity last week. Pair that with a Yellow Uber pad and M105 via rotary and it makes the polish flash and dry very quickly so you get bad buffer hop. I had to take my humidifier out to get some humidity in there to lessen the buffer hop. I even had to Mix up M105 and Mothers Pro #81132 1:1 to get longer work times for M105 and to lessen buffer hopping. The combo actually worked great and finished down very nicely, but the cut of M105 was affected since #81132 is not as strong of s cut as M105. In certain areas M105 was solely used and I had to work at slow RPM's with moderate pressure with the Makita, so breaking down the compound would take a little longer thank usual.

I called you a prick for murdering my old SN again! ;)
Oh ok sorry man Its because I have been used to calling you by that name. By the way what is your real name not your screen name man

Thanks Justin glad you like the way it came out It did take me quite a while to get the job done. I had to use a 3M wool pad, and uber pads both in the 5.5" and 4".


Also thanks for all the replies guy I am gad you liked it, Chris I am wondering will this be able to be added to the detail stickies?
