Junkman's, The Mother of All "How to Fix Your Paint for Novices" Thread!

That's right boys and girls, The Junkman has went and made paint correction so easy, a caveman could do it! In the following videos, I cover the entire process from start to finish. The first two videos are worth their weight in gold for the information alone. I don't even start working on the paint until the third video but the amount of information I cover in the first two videos is priceless. Do NOT skip through them!

If you have ever been apprehensive about using a machine to rid your paint of scratches and swirls, you will definitely not be worried after watching this video series. I break it down to a level where a 10 year old can watch these videos and start fixing paint. The supplies and equipment that I use are readily available in the USA and abroad (for the most part). If you have a serious desire to finally fix your paint and about 1 hour and 54 minutes, then this video series is totally for you. After you have watched this series, you will not believe how easy I have made this.

So sit back and get out some popcorn, kick up your feet and enjoy. The Junkman is about to burst onto your screen in a way that only the Junkman can!


Here are your before and after shots, which won't make a lot of sense until you have watched the videos, especially when you see how the number "2" ended up in the paint!


BEFORE...




AFTER!






Part 1[/b] - Hey boys and girls! Finally, a video series that takes the process of paint correction from the beginning to the end (from claying to waxing). Although I do not apply any wax at the end, I cover everything else in detail. This series is 1 hour and 54 minutes long so that should give you an idea as to how much detail I go into.

In this first video, I talk in detail about exactly what paint correction is. I also go into detail about the polishing technique you should use as well as the best product on the market that you should buy. I cover other topics too so just sit back and kick up your feet. This video is 15 minutes and 7 seconds long.

Part 2 - In this video, I go into detail about exactly what I use to remove the paint damage within this video series. I name and visually show every piece of equipment as well as all of the products necessary to do paint correction. In some cases, I even offer up a location where you can find the products that I use. I talk about why I chose to use the products that I use as well as what I don't use. If you want a list of these items, WATCH THIS VIDEO.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h_0nr6XPEHM&feature=plcp



Part 3 - Okay, in this video I identify the damage that we are going to repair. I even go as far to create some damage just to ensure that my paint will be more jacked up than your paint. I then go into detail about claying, and what it does for your finish. Last of all, I show how to assemble the PC-7424XP so that we can start the polishing process. The video following this video will be in high definition so that you can clearly see the damage and the effectiveness of my repair.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PyJYtYhz9RQ&feature=plcp



Part 4 - Because I wanted the viewers of this video to be able to see the results of the work that I did in high detail, I uploaded this video in high definition. That took 12 hours!

In this video, I actually go into the proper technique for polishing with the PC-7424XP, showing me using the machine properly. I show the polishes that I use, the pads that each polish is used on, how to work the polisher and how much polish should be used. I also talk about the importance of not using too much polish and clogging up the pores in the pads, which makes the whole process worthless. I go into the discussion of how long to work a polish and when to stop (after a polish flashes). I show which order the polishes are used and explain why you use them in that order.

One thing that I stress in this video is the importance of a solid technique. I talk about and show the technique that I use, as well as how to ensure that you are developing a solid technique. As I say often in this video series, "Technique trumps product 365, 24/7. No matter who's polishes you decide to use, none of them will work worth a darn if your technique sucks. Technique rules!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P0rbZOeNN4o&feature=plcp



Conclusion - I recap my process and allow you into my mindset concerning paint correction and caring for your paint.

Santa List

SUP Junkman ?
Love your vids. I bought a C5 conv in August. It has a nice shine but nothing like your "restoration" finish. I would like to do the whole car with your whole process in the spring of 2014. My wife and grown kids are always asking what I want for Christmas and I would like your help.

While watching you vids, I was trying to keep notes on each step, product, brand, how used, where to buy it, etc. If you prepared your "Junkman's Buying Guide" others may find useful. Start with the basic necessities to do a quality restore and add "other great stuff" too. For example,

Product Usage Where to buy Est cost
Porter Cable Buffer Polishing Amazon.com $120
Mequires 205 Polish Polishing Chem Guys $45/ quart
Borderless Blonde Glaze Removal Chem Guys $25

Do you think your Boys & Girls would appreciate your Recommended Products Guide for their Santa list?? Thanks for all the great vids, Richie Tunes.

A correction to something you posted. Chemical Guys does NOT sell the Borderfree Blond Towel. You can only purchase those from a company called the Zaino. I distinctly mention that in these videos. They are the manufacturer and the only people who sell that towel.

The problem with creating a list of where to purchase these items is that the places you purchased them from changes frequently. Some locations will sell a large quantity of a given product (i.e. quart and gallon sizes), and other places will sell a more affordable quantity of product from time to time (i.e. 16 ounce sizes). Some companies stop carrying a product if it doesn't move as fast as they like. So one thing that I have learned is to allow people to look around for a given product. I will give them the name of the product and all they have to do is utilize good ol' Google, which will allow them to locate anything that I use. Some of the stuff that I use in this video series can be found at of all places Auto Zone or Pep Boys. By watching the videos, you will be able to get a detailed list of exactly what I used. That's why it is so important to take notes. I want to promote watching the videos as often as it takes for people to accumulate that list. That may mean watching them three or four times per video if necessary. The reason I want people to do this is because there is absolutely no way as a novice that you will be able to retain everything that you see in these videos by only watching them once. That's another reason I don't just supply a list.

So if you do not see information listed in the video description, then the smartest thing to do is to take detailed notes and watch the videos multiple times. This will only benefit you, especially if you are a novice to paint correction. Since I take the time to not only show to the screen the product and product label of everything I use, there is no reason anyone paying attention while watching these videos can't come up with an exact product list. Where to get those products will depend on who has the best deal at the time you are looking for them. That's about as easy as I am going to make it for those who really want to learn. I do it this way because I truly want people to understand exactly what they're doing. If they do, they will be able to pick up any brand of compound and polish on the market and have success when using that product (as long as it's a quality product).

Hopefully, this makes sense and will help you achieve that list.
