Hey boys and girls, long time no see! With that said, I created a video series on how to do paint correction using a machine for novices shortly after the last time I was here. Somehow, I never posted that video series over here. That was around 2012. Since then, that series has had over a million views. I accidentally deleted those videos from my Youtube channel but someone had saved them and sent them back to me. I combined all of those videos into one video and that is what this tread is all about.

I would have never known that those videos were gone until a LOT of people started asking about them. I didn't realize how popular they still are given how old they are but after going through and editing annotations within them, I realized that the information contained within them is just as relevant today as it was back then. So I am going to post that video here for everyone to enjoy and partake in the knowledge being offered.

If you have been apprehensive about putting a polisher on your paint, this video is definitely one you want to watch. I break this process down to grade school level and if you can't successfully fix your paint with a machine after watching this video, you never tried. I guarantee that you will have success if you do what I show in this video and the video will prove that too you. All you have to do is watch and take notes.

There is no discount codes, special offers or product list associated with this video as there are A TON of different products that you can use to do what I do in this video. Some of you will have products sitting in your garages right now that will more than work. Some of you may have even purchased products that didn't work for you, despite praise from other folks. It could be the product or it might be YOU. This video is going to answer that question for you.

So get your pen and paper ready, cook some popcorn and kick up your feet. The learning starts when you click the play button. 馃槈馃憤

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. ;)

Fixed the broken video links, again. If you have watched these videos, you will now notice that they are all combined into one video WITH annotations. They just got better!
