    Heh... you have a valid point.



    Seems there`s a bit of confusion with him over what a "full correction" actually is. I`ve had details that were less take me much longer -- case in point was the `56 `vette I detailed earlier this year, 18 hours and the paint wasn`t even in good enough condition to allow for a full correction.

People are out of work by the scads here. That does NOT mean I dont admire those who command those dollars!!!! I dont do wheel polishing. I clean and pressure wash but thats it. Hats off to Dave, who always seems to know his stuff on this site. It took me three 3.5 hours to do the Porsche.... thats 71 dollars per hour which is roughly my rate. I figure on between 65 and 90 per hour based on what I am doing.




    Ahhh, you`re unbanned. I will never forget you, I was once trying to help a new guy out with the paint polishing process and telling him how some corrections can take up to 25 hours or more... and then you came in, insulted me and said it should never take more than an hour or two to polish the paint properly.



    Have you ever even posted a write-up or sun pictures after polishing and an IPA wipedown?

    I am gonna be really nice again and do the devil`s advocate thing again.



    Maybe when PaintXpert says "I" he means himself and his crew of 3 people?



    But yea, no way full correction in 3 hours.. I haven`t even begun test sections in that time.

    I have a 2008 VW GTI, it`s a fairly small car and I`ve had it since new so it`s been taken care of. At my day job, it sits in a parking deck out of the sun and weather, it`s always under a garage at home...get the idea that it`s in good shape. However, when I decided to try Nitro Seal this Saturday, I washed, clayed, and then polished with a PCXP, Megs MF pads and UNO, - the polishing step was 3.5 hours - and that was just to clean up the paint and raise the level of gloss worthy of Nitro.



    Nitro? Oh yeah, I had a guy turn all the way around in his seat as he rode by my car, my wife asked me to PLEASE put a coat on our daughter`s car, no rest for Dad! But the result was soooo worth it.
    All I have in this world is my word, and my balls and I don`t break `em for no one, you understand?"
