    Thank You!

    My 2-step varies a lot and it usually comes down to the type of paint I`m working on and the starting condition. I`ve been testing some beta polishes lately too so it`s been all over the place tbh. For the initial cut it`s usually something like M100, M205, or HD Adapt on a MF pad and then I`ll usually follow that up with M205, HD Polish, Hyper Polish on a foam polishing or finishing pad. Lots of ways to achieve the same end goal and each has their pros and cons. personally I really like using low dusting products, but that`s not always an option and their is usually a trade off with that too.

    Thanks! We will actually be adding to our existing property. We meet with the city planning commission next Monday and hopefully we can start the project before the end of June. The garage I currently work out of is no longer mine (sold after I got married) and I just rent it from the new owner now....which is why it`s slowly been filling up with more of his stuff and my work area keeps shrinking. :/

    2010 S4 in for paint correction. This one was done with the new Griot`s BOSS system, Fast Correcting Cream on the G21 with MF Fast cut pads. The 50/50 image is after one polishing cycle. The paint was almost LSP ready at that point but I followed it up with the Finishing Sealant on the yellow pads.

    Do you fine M100 has as much cut with a DA and M101?? Price is certainly better.

    I think they are pretty close, but M101 should cut more. I just like using M100 more.

    So would you say that this Fast Correction Cream is a blend of(performance-wise) compound and Polish, pretty much good to use as an "AIO"/ 1 -Step? (without the wax in the AIO part of course). Those are some great results, I`m only carrying D151 as my AIO/ 1-Step Go to at the moment only and would like to add other options to my supply just in case.

    LOL, my wife said the same thing the other day!

    I`ll remove any tar and then hit them with #0000 steel wool and a metal polish and the follow it up with the same polish on a MF towel. Usually I`m using HD Metal or Optimum Metal polish.

    No, it`s still a heavy cut compound more in line with M105, FG400, or HD cut, but since it uses micro abrasives it finishes down pretty well. It will leave some faint DA haze, but on harder clears like this Audi it will be pretty minimal. IMO it should always be followed up though, even if I could have gotten away with it on this car since it`s white.

    Now the Griot`s Correction Cream can be used for a 1-step and should finish LSP ready on most all paints with the appropriate pads choice.

    Re: Rasky's Auto Detailing - High-End Auto Detailing and Premier Coating Installer, Minnesota Metro Area

    This vehicle belongs to a good client/family that I`ve been doing cars for a few years now. This particular BMW sits outside 24/7 and becuase of this the paint had some pretty extensive contamination including bugs, tar, sap, rust blooms, and even a few areas with artillery fungus. The swirls weren`t too bad, but still required a 2-step correction to get it looking like new again.


    Process:
    Wash - Megs Hyper Wash via traditional wash, IronX, Tarminator, rewash
    Wheels - Sonax Full Effect Plus and various brushes, and Tarminator on the tar
    Tires - Megs D143, dressed with Hyper Dressing 3:1
    Jambs - OPC with mitt and boars hair brush
    Clay - Nanoskin Prep towel with Glide as lube on all paint and glass
    Paint correction step 1 - Griot`s Fast Correcting Cream with Griot`s MF pads
    Paint correction Step 2 - Griot`s Perfecting Cream with yellow Groit`s foam pads
    Tool used - G21, G15, Rupes LHR75e, G110v2
    Towels - Griot`s PFM drying towel, Megs Ultimate Wipes, Griot`s PFM Glass towels, DI all purpose towels
    Glass - Megs D120
    LSP - 2 coats of Collinite 476


    Before









    After

    No doubt, especially not with the M-Sport package.
