    So watched the video and here's the few things I enjoyed (besides all of it). And things I wish it showed.

    1. The first time you clayed the car it would have been nice to see the dirt it took off. I know it's shown later but it would have been nice to see it at that point.

    2.i wish you showed cleaning on the fly with a Terry cloth towel as well, it's good to know.

    3. I'm very happy to see that you left in some bloopers, like when you stumble on your speech when your about to start your test spot. I feel it added character to the video.

    4. While it wouldn't have been the best example to use for the car you were working, introducing or talking/showing a paint gauge meter would have been nice to see or know about for newbies.

    5. Explanation of why you didn't tape your edges or trim would have been beneficial so that those that are new don't take it as a never needed step.

    6. A bit more explanation on how many pads to use, just a simple mention of " on average 1 pad per panel/S depending on..." I feel would have been a good addition.

    7 more of a personal thing but my eyes were drawn to the buttons on your shirt and winding if they ever made contact with the paint.

    8. Some scenes you are seen touching the paint with gloves and then in others without gloves. Just one of those things in consistency that I noticed.


    Overall this is an amazing video and a great place for someone who has never polished a car to learn from the beginning to end on how to do it and the small things that are over looked (cleaning the pad after a pass, test spots)I really hope we can expect more excellent videos like this one this upcoming year.

    Thanks AG once again

    Great video! Many will appreciate this true how to video. A few questions I had were answered with the numerous posts. However, I do still have a couple of questions.

    Once you determined the white pad and swirl remover was not aggressive enough, you moved on to compound and an orange pad. When switching to compound, do you ever use a different color pad? I was curious why orange vs yellow or even white.

    What towels did you use for this process? You mentioned edge rolled towels. It looked like you used two different types of towels. Could you share a link?

    I'm a little envious of those painted stripes. My 2007 Shelby has vinyl and it is always a fight. Any tips for working with and around them would be appreciated.
