PART-AY!!! lol


I screwed up my car today.. found I could blast the residue from the rubbing compound and wax off the plastic at the car wash - unfortunately some spots I never really prepared under the mirror and along the trunklid lost paint. Easy fix, and not visible, but thats the last I use a pressure washer like that. Rest of the car held up fine under the blast.

So.. make sure you prep every square inch!!! That unreachable millimeter will bite you!!!


and to be fair.. I also blasted off paint from my mirrors and door trim - all factory stock.

So this detailing will be a bit more that I expected.. but man the paint came out looking good after the wash!!!!!!!!!

Yummy, the wings were good falcon, thanks.
I never have been a fan of pressure washing a car, wheelwells yes, body no. You just have so much more control with your hand and can see what you are doing, especially around the bottem with road tar, etc.
I used to use laquer thinner to remove tar and wax on stuff the old school way but thanks to this forum I will be trying different things now.

sweet! Went over to fix a PC at a corvette collectors house. He couldn't tell what kind of car it was I had. Told him and told him the story of the paint. He didn't believe it until I showed him the pics on Facebook.

He had to take some pictures of it to show his corvette club!

Stang, being I'm in tucson Az, we get water spots on our windows that laugh at us when we try to remove them. Got any "secret" stuff that works for that?

Hey Mike found this for you, again by mike phillips.

With a background in detailing cars in Oregon and Washington, I'm pretty familiar with removing water spots off glass. The key reason M04 works better than M105 or other products in Meguiar's line is because of the large size diminishing abrasive the product uses. When you have a built-up film of gunk on glass you need something chunky to abrade it off but it can't be abrasive to the glass at the same time.

Read this thread an my comments throughout it as multiple people chime in and ask about trying different products besides M04 and it I bring the conversation back to the word chunky.

Glass Polishing - Deep Cleaning


In fact, every time I want to find the above thread all I have to do is search this forum for the word chunky.

By hand with a piece of terry cloth as the nap, (little cotton loops), will act as a mild form of abrasive and give the M04 more bite.
By rotary buffer with a wool pad.
A DA doesn't work as well as you hand because you can exert more pressure to a small area with your finger tips than you can using the entire face of a foam buffing pad.
M105 uses super micro abrasives and while it may work in some applications, a product that is chunky will work better. At least it did on hundreds, if not thousands of cars I detailed in Oregon with built-up water spots on the exterior glass. There's a real simple test anyone can do to see what I'm talking about. Shake up either M105, M86, Ultimate Compound, SwirlX or ScratchX and feel them between your fingers and then shake up a bottle of M04 or M49 and feel these two products between your fingers.

You'll figure out what I mean real quick when I use the word chunky and it may at that time help you to understand what I mean when I say you need something chunky to abrade the gunk that builds up on your glass off without at the same time scratching the glass.

Thought I would go ahead and post up the product in question for furture reference.
http://www.autodetailingsolutions.net/m0416.html

Hope this helps. If you can't get the M04 locally then let me know and I will give some more idea's and technique's.

Have a couple details I need to get finished up and a couple more on the way so will try to do alittle test within the next week or so on using some Ultimate Compound & scratchX on my jeeps windows since they have water spots and try to capture the before and afters and post up my findings.

After all the trim was removed, I would take a bucket of hot water, add a bunch of dry cleanser, take a scotch bright pad and wash the car. It would really get out the wax and nastys in the paint and scuff the paint at the same time. Then rinse with clean water.
