Went to a ****ty car (hand brush) car wash when I was TDY and scratched my paint. This really sucks. Just waiting until it get warmer and have all the equipment to correct this.

Junkman do I need to do the whole car again or is it ok do just do spot correction. I have a few spots on my drivers fender and hood. What say you. I have the dual orbital polisher from Adams and did the whole car in Sep 14. That was a job took me (first time) about 16hrs. First washed, then clay bar, then did the paint correction (minor) then paint polish, then wax. I was tired when done took two days.

Well, let's look at your situation from a common sense stand point.

Paint correction is the process of removing paint damage by leveling (or removing) your clear coat or paint down to the point where there is no damage. Since there is only so much paint and/or clear coat on your car, you don't want to remove too much (especially when you are not using a tool to measure how much of either substance that you have to begin with).

Given that description, tell me why you would be performing paint correction on sections of the car where there is no damage?

Now do you see what I just did? I took the question that you just asked me, reworded it and presented it back to you. Using nothing but common sense, you should easily know the exact answer. The reason I am answering your question this way is because I want to force you to think for yourself and once you come up with the answer, you will never forget that answer. The entire process should just make (common) sense to you. That also goes for anyone reading this thread.

Remember, this is NOT rocket science. If it was, there would be no Junkman because I am no rocket scientist.
