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.​



The Junkman :cheers:

These videos go into more detail than the older videos did. You'll find these a lot more useful.

Yep, you've officially hit geekdom status at DC. Take your choice, pocket protector of black framed glasses with duct tape? :D

Thank you Junkman for another great video...

But I have one one question; how do you know when to stop with the M205 and the white pad? Does it "flash" like the M105?

I watched whole thing. I'm not too confident on anything with car fixing, but I think I can do this.

A few weeks ago, after a track day, I saw young kids jumping around on the street with "Car Wash" sign, so I thought I would help those kids.
They made not 'swirl marks', but huge scratches all over the paint.
I wouldn't lie - some bad thoughts went through my mind, but I drove away,, with heartache...

I almost thought of driving my vette down to KY and go on a strike in Louisville until Junkman agrees to fix my paint. (I have an operation down in KY so I go there at least every other month)

With this video, I think I will give myself a challenge during the winter months. My last track day is 10/27 so after that, I'll do 2-bucket-wash and take times to do whole car.

One quick question though: If I wash my car on, say,,, 11/03, and do half of the hood that day, and I want to start the second half on next weekend, do I have to wash the whole car again? I mean,, it would be collecting dust in the garage. Should I put car cover on right after I'm done? Or do I just do 'dust removal'? (honestly, I haven't watched that video yet - I just saw you mention that video)


Sorry about such a long post, but I'm very excited after watching the whole video, and HUGE THANKS to Junkman!! :cheers:


P.S.: I learned so much from the video but one of the most shocking thing I learned was that Junkman works in Computer network field?? I always thought Junkman was an owner of either a detail shop or Adam's product distributor or something similar.
Maybe I should really stop by Louisville sometime and have some bourbon with you to learn more about you. (and maybe talk about Corvettes too...)

Yes, ALL polishes flash. That's what tells you to stop, wipe it off and inspect your progress.

That's fine, but bring your own hotties. I don't share any of mine. :D

What you want to do is just cover the car up after you're done for the day. That would be safer than doing the dust removal. Remember, anytime that you can avoid touching your paint is better for the paint. So covering it up when you finish for the day is better than doing any dust removal and much quicker than washing.

I almost thought of driving my vette down to KY and go on a strike in Louisville until Junkman agrees to fix my paint. (I have an operation down in KY so I go there at least every other month)
Ya' know, I would have fixed your paint for free but now that I know you've been here and NEVER looked me up once, YOU'RE ON YOUR OWN! :devil:

I don't know about my own hottie, but I'll definitely bring KY's finest Bourbon, for myself, for you AND your hottie. :D

Dang it... I should've just told you I WAS going to come to visit KY. :thud: Sometime soon,,, I'll plan a 'stop-over' at Louisville on the way down to my factory in the middle of nowhere, called Campbellsville. Don't kick me out for coming in a boring Caddy wagon though... I'll bring 65% (130proof) bourbon with me. :cheers:
