    Re: What did you do detailing wise today?

    We got a couple of nice days last week. I got both the vehicles cleaned up from all the winter junk. Lots of pressure washing, Ryobi undercarriage washer, and Obsessed Garage Decon soap. Weathertech last got washed out as well. It`s going to be cold again for a while but it was nice to spend some time in the driveway washing cars again.

    Took advantage of a nice Spring day and gave the truck a good bath. Frame and undercarriage got pressure washed as well; taking it in for service tomorrow and don`t want a dirty truck!

    2017 Tesla Model S 100 D Red

    This was done on April 1st - The BIG thing was the paint thickness.
    I recently purchased a DeFelsko 200C3-G PosiTector 200 C3 Advanced Ultrasonic Coating Thickness Gauge and a DeFelsko DFT

    I have almost always found Tesla paint to be on the thin and soft side.

    I measured inside the door jamb. I do this as a baseline.
    NOTE: I like to measure in microns for an accurate reading.


    Then I measured the paint on the rest of the car.

    This reading is much higher than any Tesla factory paint.
    I will admit it was a very good quality paint job.
    It was hard to tell it was painted.

    I taped off the trim and polished the paint.




    Again the interesting part is the before/after paint thickness.

    Paint correction was a four part process.

    Scholl`s S2 w/Megs microfiber cutting disc.
    Rupes Blue DA with Lake County Blue HDO pad
    Rupes Yellow DA and Rupes Yellow DA pad.
    Rupes White Pure and Rupes White DA pad.

    Interestingly enough the PTG went from 253 to 252.
    I removed only 1 micron of CC! (after market paint)

    Finished...




    360 walk-around video - Please click bottom Gear for 4K HD Quality w/audio


    BTW - If you are polishing paint and you are not using a PTG, IMHO you are polishing blind!
    Yes, again, IMHO DeFelsko in the "gold standard" but even an inexpensive PTG is better the no PTG at all!

    Another note: I had a 2017 Mazda Miata - Gloss Black stop by. Covered in swirls and holograms!
    I measured the paint. It was THIN. The thickest reading I got was 67 microns. I didn`t do the car.

    Thanks for looking...
