That's right boys and girls, The Junkman has went and made paint correction so easy, a caveman could do it! In the following videos, I cover the entire process from start to finish. The first two videos are worth their weight in gold for the information alone. I don't even start working on the paint until the third video but the amount of information I cover in the first two videos is priceless. Do NOT skip through them!

If you have ever been apprehensive about using a machine to rid your paint of scratches and swirls, you will definitely not be worried after watching this video series. I break it down to a level where a 10 year old can watch these videos and start fixing paint. The supplies and equipment that I use are readily available in the USA and abroad (for the most part). If you have a serious desire to finally fix your paint and about 1 hour and 54 minutes, then this video series is totally for you. After you have watched this series, you will not believe how easy I have made this.

So sit back and get out some popcorn, kick up your feet and enjoy. The Junkman is about to burst onto your screen in a way that only the Junkman can! :thumbsup:


Here are your before and after shots, which won't make a lot of sense until you have watched the videos, especially when you see how the number "2" ended up in the paint!


BEFORE...




AFTER!






Part 1 - Hey boys and girls! Finally, a video series that takes the process of paint correction from the beginning to the end (from claying to waxing). Although I do not apply any wax at the end, I cover everything else in detail. This series is 1 hour and 54 minutes long so that should give you an idea as to how much detail I go into.

In this first video, I talk in detail about exactly what paint correction is. I also go into detail about the polishing technique you should use as well as the best product on the market that you should buy. I cover other topics too so just sit back and kick up your feet. This video is 15 minutes and 7 seconds long.

Part 2 - In this video, I go into detail about exactly what I use to remove the paint damage within this video series. I name and visually show every piece of equipment as well as all of the products necessary to do paint correction. In some cases, I even offer up a location where you can find the products that I use. I talk about why I chose to use the products that I use as well as what I don't use. If you want a list of these items, WATCH THIS VIDEO.

Part 3 - Okay, in this video I identify the damage that we are going to repair. I even go as far to create some damage just to ensure that my paint will be more jacked up than your paint. I then go into detail about claying, and what it does for your finish. Last of all, I show how to assemble the PC-7424XP so that we can start the polishing process. The video following this video will be in high definition so that you can clearly see the damage and the effectiveness of my repair.

Part 4 - Because I wanted the viewers of this video to be able to see the results of the work that I did in high detail, I uploaded this video in high definition. That took 12 hours!

In this video, I actually go into the proper technique for polishing with the PC-7424XP, showing me using the machine properly. I show the polishes that I use, the pads that each polish is used on, how to work the polisher and how much polish should be used. I also talk about the importance of not using too much polish and clogging up the pores in the pads, which makes the whole process worthless. I go into the discussion of how long to work a polish and when to stop (after a polish flashes). I show which order the polishes are used and explain why you use them in that order.

One thing that I stress in this video is the importance of a solid technique. I talk about and show the technique that I use, as well as how to ensure that you are developing a solid technique. As I say often in this video series, "Technique trumps product 365, 24/7. No matter who's polishes you decide to use, none of them will work worth a darn if your technique sucks. Technique rules!

Conclusion - I recap my process and allow you into my mindset concerning paint correction and caring for your paint.

I sticky it for you Junkman :thumbsup:
Thank you sir! There are a lot of novices who are going to benefit from this series. I took the time (1 hour and 54 minutes of video) to explain everything in detail along with visual aids. I even used a car that was no garage queen so that people could see some very realistic results. I think folks are not only going to appreciate that, but they are going to get a kick out of my dancing skills. :lol:

Thanks again! :thumbsup:

Junkman, what do you do after your done polishing? Wax?
That's the last logical step remaining. After polishing, your paint is naked and unprotected. Thus, you must apply a wax or sealant (or both) in order to protect that paint. The wax or sealant DOES NOT make the paint APPEAR any different so don't get caught up in all the hype about certain waxes creating certain looks. As far as I'm concerned, that's a crock of BS. Polishing is where the look of your paint is achieved. Wax and sealants are nothing more than protective measures.

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? :confused:

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. ;)
