Welcome to DC.

There's plenty more videos like that where those came from. Your paint shouldn't be in that bad of shape and now you know how to make sure that it never gets there. Thanks for watching.

No, you can find M105 all over the planet. They even carry it at your local Pepe Boys, Auto Zone and O'Reilly's.

You don't have to buy the 32 ounce bottles, you can get the 16 ounce bottles.

The product is called LAVA Paste Wax Luminous Glow Infusion. It is posted under their waxes section so guess what that makes it...

No, I have never used it.

Thanks for the extreme amount of time and effort you put into sharing your knowledge.
I don't own a vette but use your methods to care for my wife's black 300 and my Ram 2500. Question it looks like you use only two stages of polish. Is wet sanding the stage you go to if the polishing doesn't work? I had purchased the 4 stage polish kit from griots before I found your videos and want to know how do you figure out which Polish to start with? Thanks

Until you get enough experience where you can just look at the paint and know where to start, you start with the least aggressive method first and work your way backward. As for wet sanding, there are a number of polish/polisher combinations that I can try before going to wet sanding. This comes with experience. However, I highly suggest that you master polishing first before you even think about picking up sandpaper. If you can't remove normal paint damage, you're going to be in for a nightmare when it comes to removing wet sanding damage.

Welcome to the forum.

Xpel -clear bra

Hi junkman /. And any one's opinion

My bmw' s hood as a few rock Chips. I was going to have a pro fix it, then have it put in clear bra to avoid future intense car ships. Xpel has film that can do that for me, plus it will not turn yellow as the product gets old.

Have you ( junk man) try the clear bra or anyone else try it ?

Your car will look shinny all the time ...




Ps. I saw you car in a pic , makes me want to get one

Talking Great videos

Hi junkman

Just wanted to let you know, your videos are great, but what I like the most ... is your sense of humor and definite not boring. Great video knowledge + great sense of humor = alsome learning material.

Ps. My English skills are poor, hope you understand my point.

Thanks Juan m.

Your English skills are better than many of the college educated Dodo's on here. You're doing great. Even I understood and I'm from Kentucky.
