    SCANGRIP Sunmatch - Showing Wet Sanding Scratches and Holograms



    My friend Jim and his buddy painted this 1980 Corvette and then hand wet sanded it and buffed it out. I'd say overall they did a pretty good job as to fully sand, cut and buff a car is a huge undertaking. Here's how she looks in Autogeek's Show Car Garage.




    Under florescent lights, the paint looks pretty good!






    Look ma... no swirls - no scratches....






    Now lets see what's really going on....


























    These my friend are holograms....






    If you detail cars at a professional level or you work in a body shop - you want this light.

    I agree on the expensive side but what does your output of work mean to you and to your customer's. From Mike's showing on the Vette all looked well until under a lamp.

    If you're doing paint correction for money, it is totally worth the investment. I purchased one and a pen after Mike Phillips & Larry Kosilla`s rave reviews. Let me tell you....I love them. A huge bonus.....perfect for finding high spots when coating.

    Agreed. I bought myself one for christmas and it is amazing. I had the pen light for a few months and it to is nice. I also picked up the headlamp and it is just as great as the handheld and pen light. A trifecta of good lighting.

    Looks like that light shows the defects much better than the Brinkman.

    That Vette is going to look amazing after its transformed.
