    Ok... My dads 93 Black Lexus does not have clear coat... are there any concerns when working with a non clear coated car vs a clear coated one..

    The process I was going to try this weekend is:

    Clay -

    DACP with PC

    SMR with PC

    and S100 with PC

    The car is in really, really bad shape... he washes it like once a month and it hasnt been polished/waxed in 3 years or more.

    No difference. Remember that clearcoat is basically paint with no pigment. IOW, its the same stuff and the same tools and products can be used.
    There are only three things you need to know about me. Gloss, Gloss, GLOSS!!

    Yeah, what bretfraz said :xyxthumbs The single-stage on the Lexus is NOT all that different from basecoat/clears (it`s NOT like the "old" single-stages on older cars).

    It *IS*, however, sorta thin compared to older ss paints, so DON`T get overly aggressive and cut through it. You`re gonna get some pigment transfer onto your pads, so don`t about THAT, but, especially on abused black cars, you gotta know when to say "good enough". So go easy/careful with the DACP.
