    Thank you for your feedback Charles, and the referrals and kind words. I'll do it, that is I'll make a dedicated thread with just the how-to meat.

    Ugh... you reminded me I need to finish moving the rest of the article to the site and it's kind of tedious because I have to change all the BB code to HTML code...


    I'll try get to it sooner than later...

    I thought dampsanding.com was a poke. Hell, it is real!! Awesome. I will read the articles there again, if anything, to give Mike some hits. Of course, who else would have a site like that but Professor Phillips? Too cool for school. Next we might see thefinalwipe.com.

    How much would you charge for a job like this? I charge around 1200-2000

    $1500.00 to $3000.00...


    Good question... it can be hard to get top dollar because most customers have know idea what's involved to do it right the first time and at body shops they do a quickie job as a part of the paint job if you pay for it and it diminished the value of the price for a dedicated process performed by a professional.

    Education is the key to a fair price.


    Good question...

    Mike,

    This has to be the most detailed, comprehensive thread I've ever read! One of the best step by step tutorials that would give even the beginner the information and courage to try this process....

    This is a keeper!!

    Mike,

    On the first post it reads "Also anytime you're using any electric tool around electricity you should always have the tool plugged into a GFI outlet".

    It should read "...electric tool around WATER..."

    Cheers!

    Good catch, hopefully out of the approximately 10,758 words that's the only word mistake I made.

    Thanks Bobby,

    It took a long time to write and a long time to take the pictures. I have to give Jason Rose credit because he supplied me with all the technical information about these sanding and finishing discs as at the time I wrote this these were brand new on the market. I try not to steal other people's work and claim it as my own although I see my work lifted all the time an no credit given..

    I'm going to take this info and update it and then use it for a new project using a new car for the pictures.


    At the time these were introduced I was also scheduled to teach some classes at Mobil Tech Expo and one of my classes was how to dampsand. Outside of Meguiar's internal training I'm pretty sure this was the first class on dampsanding using these new Unigrit discs.

    The backing plate I'm using was still a prototype...

    Pictures from Mobile Tech Expo 2010


    In this section we sanded first with the 1500 Sanding Disc and then followed with the 3000 Foam Finishing Disc

    Re: Dampsanding Tools, Tips and Techniques by Mike Phillips

    I just dampsanded my roof and deck lid with the 3000 finishing disc. To cut through the sanding quickly (and I didn't have any tails!), I hit it with my rotary, orange compressor, and some Menzerna 1500. After two passes it was very glossy.

    What should be next step - TSR on my DA or Menzerna 4500 on Rotary then final polish with DA or ???
