    Curious as to what yall think of this guys proccess



    The process this guys uses seems crazy to me and runs contrary to what I`ve learned in the detailing circles. Dear God...and the process he used for the ceramic coating! Idk, maybe it`s just me but a wet sand and DA process seems less work with more uniform results.

    Looks like a straight "cut and buff" to me - I don`t know how that paint isn`t going to be hologram-city in the sun going straight from wool pad / compound to coating it.

    That was hard to watch... The RPM on that polisher, wow.

    What scares me the most is the ignorance in the comment section. One person even called him a "true master and expert." Give me 5 seconds with a proper inspection light (or just get it outside on a sunny day) and I think we all know what that is going to look like.

    And what the heck is that coating??? Never seen one that behaves like that. It`s like he covered the hood in butter and was trying to wipe it off.

    I wonder where at in Michigan he is.

    Oh, watched the first few seconds. Now I now it`s going your be crazy crap. Sweet project cars is a insane Chanel. I`ve seen a few of his videos, and I wouldn`t do anything he said in them. He`s the one who says tires will last over a 100k miles. That`s if you put 303 aerospace on the side walls, and tread of tires every couple of weeks. Then claims those tires do great in the snow even. Boys and girls please say no to smoking crack.


    ive also seen the guy use metal polish on a rotary on paint.


    Edit: omg I guess that`s what he does in this video too.

    I don`t know how Mothers Mags and alu polish is on clearcoat. But I swear by that his trick with a metall polish works awesome on headlights that is heavly oxidized. Did this last summer to a test on a car that stays still so no driving with it but in the elements 24/7. A metall polish on a foam cutting pad and the Mothers Billet on a polishing pad did. Looked at them yesterday and one headlight have a very slight oxidation beginning again. Think that`s pretty good no other protection used during this time. They where in a condition that I would have wet sanding them first. But I think it`s acidic based carriers in the metall polish that is extremly good at just desolve and abrade the oxidized protection of the headlights while still seems to be gentle enough.

    Then it`s a long way to go on paint with this metall polish and a wool pad. It would be very interesting to see under the inspection light and full sun to see how it really looks. But think it`s Eldorado2K that tried this on the gauges inside of the car. And if that`s not dulling the finish it can be working on paint too. So I`m not totaly sold on it. But I don`t dismiss it either before have trying it out on a cars paint that you don`t need to be so carefull with.

    That hood was pretty much wasted anyway, he really couldn`t damage it much more. Probably should have done a finishing polish with a finishing pad, though.

    I tried a thin felt wood working pad on my PC. With a compound it did a nice job of cutting. Followed it with a polishing pad and polish and worked quite well. Sometimes thinking outside the box is good, sometimes it doesn`t work real well.
