    How did you apply the cleansing lotion? By hand or machine?
    We mostly applied it by machine - Porter Cable and LC blue pads.

    Some small/tight areas were done by hand.

    I always seem to have good time at the makeovers. It's good getting together with the usual group of guys, and meeting new people and eating some good food.

    Mike is a great teacher and I always learn something new since every car has its unique issues.

    You should try to make it sometime.

    Re: Pictures: 2016 Challenger Scatpack Shaker & 2016 Dodge Hellcat - Black Label Diamond Paint Coating

    Forgot to add the below pictures to this thread. I previously used them in a write-up for the LC ThinPro pads but a recent discussion reminded me of the below pictures.

    Half my work on this forum is simply remembering and/or finding work already done.




    Removing wet sanding marks with the NEW Lake Country ThinPro Grey Extreme Cutting Pad

    We machine polished Ken's R/T Scatpack Shaker to perfection using the new and improved Pinnacle Advanced Finishing Polish. This killer fine cut polish removed all the fine swirls and scratches and perfectly prepared the paint for a ceramic paint coating EXCEPT there were some deeper scratches on the passenger side roof. Ken didn't know how they were inflicted into the hood? They looked like something impacted the roof leaving straight line scratches about a half inch long over an area about 5" square.



    Machine sanding

    Sorry we didn't take any pictures but our classes are intense and very hands-on and the focus is on creating show cars not creating articles. That said, I machine sanded the scratches using the Griot's 3" Mini Polisher and 3M Trizact #3000 three inch sanding discs. I followed this by refining my sanding marks using 3M Trizact #5000 three inch sanding discs.

    Next I asked Jeff aka GSKR here on the forum if he would remove the sanding marks NOT with a rotary buffer but with the same tool we sanded with and the NEW 3.5" ThinPro pads. Now Jeff is a good friend and one heck of a detailer. This guy can make a rotary buffer dance on paint. While I know he would normally make 2-3 passes with rotary and simply obliterate the sanding marks I wanted to challenge him to use what most would consider the least powerful polisher in our shop of 150 polishers.

    Normally I wouldn't use the Griot's 3" Mini Polisher to remove sanding marks but with the new 3.5" ThinPro pads and the excellent pad rotation I had already seen and experienced I knew these pads would work great with small orbital polishers.


    Here's Jeff working his magic!





    This is the 3.5" Grey Extreme Cutting pad with McKee's Fast Compound




    Look at the buffing pattern in the film of compound on the paint. Jeff's good and I trust him with any project here at Autogeek









    Now Jeff has switched over to a 3.5" ThinPro white polishing pad and is re-polishing the area with Pinnacle Advanced Finishing Polish.







    After all the polishing work was over we applied Pinnacle Black Label Diamond Paint Coating and here's the final results.




    If you've been waiting for small thin pads for your small orbital polisher no matter what the brand the wait is over!
