Congrats on your detailing job man, I tried doing the same with my car with Meguiars products but it seems I need something else to get rid of the swirls.
Thanks for posting pics of the whole process, hope you do the same when you´re finished with yours.
Please remember that its mostly all about technique and time. Good products will help you get to the results with a good technique.
What Meguiars products were you using?
I will be posting the full detail of my car when its done, but its been taking way too long, there is no single detail that I let go on it. Its quite obsessive
I use Griot's products, and only Polish 3 and 4 (the mildest polish) over the entire car once, and only Polish 1 (the most aggressive) a couple of times in a specific area (door scratches). Moderate pressure, Porter Cable orbital on speed #3 (of 6).
Your input again appreciated!
I never used Griots products, but there is something that I think that you should take into consideration:
A car doesn't need to be polished very often, it just needs to have its finish taken care of.
Its much better if you go over with the Porter Cable, starting with the least aggressive polish and pad combination. If that doesn't solve the de-swirling, then you go up a step. Correct the paint and then finish it up with a finishing polish + finishing pad. After this you can glaze it and apply the wax/sealant.
The way that you wash the car after this is what is going to dictate how long your paint will be swirl free. A proper wash technique
with two buckets and the right washing materials is absolutely essential. On that note, I may just make a tutorial on how to wash your M5 when the weather is a bit better here
Nice work. I just hope he keeps it that way. What's the over/under on that?
Kleintje will have to keep an eye on it, else he will have to handle my wrath!
What do you mean with the over and under?
i see your swirls and raise you swirls off a freinds car i detailed today!
haha no just kidding, great job, takes forever but definately rewarding.
Sweet job there Razahyde!
Tiauguinho and Razza, what do you guys think of the Sonus polishing products and Klasse All in One finish?
I have the whole line of the Sonüs products and I find them to be very user friendly. I find the finishing polish SFX3 to be quite good actually
Its dirty again... When can I come by for a re-run?
We will arrange a morning to give your car a proper wash and another coat of wax
W O W !
