Looks great. The new rotary tools are great. I run the Porter cable from chemical guys and their hex pads.
I still have my old angle grinder/ rotary for really nasty stuff. I was using the Adams pads, but I actually just ordered some CG Hex pads to supplement them, as I've heard great things about them.
Looking good op. I know very well how hard it is to keep up a pbm. its like a second job. : )
I got dr color chips as a Christmas gift and it works pretty well on the small dot style chips but I'd say as good as gm stuff on bigger marks. My front bumper was bad too.
As for polishers.
As stated. The da is much safer than a rotary. Its not as high of an rpm and it will stop rotating when you hit corners or push to hard. Its amazing how far they've come with detailing products. You can do a lot with a DA. There are things where a rotary is necessary but its getting better with the DA pads and I think a rotary will become unnecessary in the future. Another expensive tool is the rupes buffers. They offer the speed of a rotary and the dual action like a DA buffer. They say it won't swirl paint.
If I get into this more, or garner any kind of following or business, I'm sure I'll be stepping up to something even better. For now, this Meguiars should suffice. I still need to do my truck and Monte Carlo yet, and it looks like some of my family are already liking how the G8 turned out too.
This guy is awesome on how to videos for auto detail. Hes the one guy i take advice from. I've been detailing professionally for 20 yrs now and there's a lot of bad advice given. Not to say its happening here. Just thought I'd share this vid with you guys.
Always great to catch up on vids like this and see how different people get things done. I seem to pick up small tid-bits and tips here and there from every one. Thanks for sharing!
Thanks, it was a lot of work.
man that looks great. I have LR so its not as bad for me but I would like to do this as well. I've gotten slack about 2 bucket washes as I use the adams grate in the bucket. I just have no idea where to even begin with color correction
A good buddy of mine a couple years back, scoffed at me for using 2 buckets (just using regular old pails until recently) and now he's changing his mind, haha. Show people the rinse water and they'll get the picture.
Nice work, 50/50 pics make detailing fun
Heck ya they do. The really showcase how bad things can be, and how good they can look afterwards.
