  • OMG! It works great. I got a new lease and scratched it after three days getting bird poop off. I was mad at myself cause I KNOW how to get poop off! Initially, I was scared because I've never gotten scratches off myself but it worked perfectly. Thank you so much.

  • Since you polished it to make it look the same, over time will that haze part still show back up if car is dirty or do you have to keep up on the polish and wax?

  • Chris, where is the video were you show how to deal with a scratch as deep as the one shown at the 2:55 mark. Some children scratched my car so badly that I am really mad about it.

  • Is it still effective permanently, or simply apply it again when it fades the wax.?

    ENGINE BOYENGINE BOYPrieš 14 dienų
    • This is a permanent fix, the polish is what removes the haze and the wax is just to protect the paint, that's why wax needs to be applied every so often and why polish is only used when doing a paint correction!

  • Some woman banged her door on mine getting out her car today and when she walked past my window she literally knocked my wing mirrors out of place. No effort was made to avoid touching my car. She didn’t even know I was in the car waiting for somebody in the shop, so I beeped at her and when she came back out I told her to pay for the dent and chip she caused to my door. She said “it’s not my fault you parked close to the line” so I said it’s not my fault you need to park right by the store when there are spaces all over here just because you can’t walk more than 20 meters without needing a triple cheese burger and 2 large fries hold the salad. While she was in the shop I keyed the whole side of her passenger side. I felt satisfied as that being my payment so I let her leave and now I’m fixing her mess. Maybe she’ll be here on this video learning how to fix mine.

  • People do need to remember though that certain cars have alot of 'factory' orange peel. Once you've wet sanded and polished you're going to have an area that's glass smooth compared to the rest of the panel that still has the orange peel

  • So what if we dont expand that area and keep it just between the first line when you set out the tap. Im not sure i would want cut through so much clearcoat and fanning it out that big. When i see detailers do this i dont think i see them fan out that wide to make the gab less visible. The result does look amazing, im just not really cool with it that im cutting through so much clearcoat.

    • Why would you scratch a car over that? If someone cheats on you just leave them. Simple. You don’t have to damage their property and get in trouble and make yourself look bad because yes YOU will look bad in that case. You will take emphasis off what he did wrong and put emphasis on you looking like a crazy ex. Never go full crazy ex.

I got a 2019 Camry and the color is called Predawn Gay Mica - whatever. It is a pretty color but it shows every single tiny scratch. Thanks again. I'm going to do this right now!
