I bought a new car and after I got it in the right light it looked like the dealer washed it with a wire in the rag. there's swirls, marks and in one place it just plain looks scuffed. I did clay bar the entire car and it's smoother but the scuffs and swirls remain so I started looking around and found the Junkman..now I'm here completely without a clue (except for what I've learned today on the videos I've watched) and ready to get my paint in shape.

thanks for having me..ready to learn.

thanks for the welcome, she's got about 2100 miles on her today..

I'll try to get some pics of the "damage" that looks terrible under lights at night or even in the bright sun at times.

I actually went to buy another Camaro (white or silver) but for some reason this one spoke (screamed) to me..

 

thanks again.

Easy fix my friend, just take the red pill. :D

 

Welcome to the forum. You may want to start with this video series in order to rid your paint of swirls. It is, that simple. :thumbsup:

 

thanks A.J., "the red pill"? I've watched I think every video you made over the last few days and I'm still a little afraid of dips, corners, high spots (all in that Ford hood) and the possible soft and thin clear coat I hear Ford sprays.. I want to start at the right place and not be more aggressive than I need to be.

for sure I'm not confused about color coded products and what order to use them.:thumbsup: just where to get on the train..:2thumbs:

 

:welcomebanner: Love that color, and that texas plate! great intro man, and looks like the junkmans already got ya pointed in the right direction! now get too it and make her purdy! :D:pc:

 

thanks, unfortunately the outsourced bunch that runs the custom plates deal and I didn't see eye to eye so, I'm back to TX state issue which looks ok. like I said somewhere before, I'm at heart a Chevy guy but that Grabber Blue just... wait for it, GRABBED ME. :burnout:

Welcome to the party!!

appreciate it.:patriot:

Welcome Terry!

thanks.:thumbsup:

 

Welcome aboard ;) if you're in SAT, I'll be more than happy to give ya some examples on my rides, or in Houston you can probably get Perez to show you too! You'll love this stuff in no time ;)

 

thanks, I've been planning a trip to SA for the last 6 months and haven't made it yet, maybe I can get you to show me some of the better places for Mexican Food... I've only been to SA once, but I'll let you know when I'll be down and maybe we can get together:thumbsup: I was in Baytown a month ago but have been threatening to go back down just to see the San Jacinto Monument, so maybe I can meet up with Perez then.:thumbsup:

Nice car! :2thumbs:

 

Didn't you notice the swirls before you took delivery??

 

thank you' date=' but no I'm afraid I didn't.. that color is pretty forgiving and from a couple of feet away I still can't see any damage but when it's really clean and under lights with the right angle it really shows up. I'm sure even as careful as I've been I've added more damage the few times I've washed it. I saw a fella at a Chevy dealer the other day washing Camaros with a mop and a bucket, so I figure I'd have been in the same boat no matter what.:willy:[/color']

 

thanks again ya'll, now I need to start thinking up some smart questions to ask... and ordering some stuff.:D

You dodn't catch all the information in my videos. You need to watch them a second time, maybe even a third. ;)

You're working with the PC-7424XP. The last thing that you have to worry about are dips, edges and corners. But then I cover that in my videos. ;)

Welcome Terry -

 

Everything you see on the videos works exactly as shown and described. The Porter Cable 7424XP is super safe. I had never used one before either, and I used it on my black paint with NO issues. (Black paint shows every little thing, good or bad). It is a gentle polisher, but gets the job done!

 

This stuff is safe, and these products are going to be the best stuff you've ever used, no kidding.
