    1) Attempt to remove high spots by hand with AIO polish
    2) Use M205 on white thinpro pad with GG 3" polisher
    3) Use M205 on orange thinpro pad with GG 3" polisher
    4) Use M105 or GG Fast Correcting cream on orange thinpro pad with GG 3" polisher
    5) Use WG Perfekt Cleaner and recoat area

    Do I need to polish the entire panel or just the section around the high spot? Any other general tips or things to be aware of? I'm happy with the product but want to get the blemishes off so it's perfect.

    Thanks,

    Rick

    Hi Rick,

    I would try the M205 by machine and skip the use of an AIO.

    AIO is a cleaner/wax by any other name. This means it's cleaning and waxing at the same time. Thus you would have to remove not only the polishing oils but also the wax.

    If you use just a polish, (M205), then you just need to remove the polishing oils.

    I'd just to spot repair, that is clean off a high spot, strip the paint in that area, apply the Wolfgang Uber Ceramic Paint Coating to the affected area and/or the panel.

    I wouldn't think there would be any huge negative effects if at least a half hour to an hour has passed after wiping off any high spots.

    It's best for ANY coating, wax or synthetic paint sealant to not get wet or get caught in the rain after application, not just Wolfgang's coating.


    So do your best and if it happens, and you're around to softy wipe off the rain drop spots then do so...



    Rain, working in wet climates is tough on mobile detailing.


    Try to use an owner's garage for real important cars.



    Thank you

    Re: Review & How-To: Wolfgang Uber Ceramic Paint Coating

    Mike, my car (2017 Mustang GT...metallic white...1700 miles...garage kept) is only 2 months old. I applied the Griott's paint sealant 2 weeks after I bought it. I did the flashlight test, and there are no visible swirl marks. Will I get any noticeable improvement from using a finishing glaze before applying the Uber Coating considering that my car is practically brand new? I plan on washing, claying the entire car to remove any lingering debris on the paint, then using the Perfect Paint Prep. Is that good, or should I apply a finishing glaze with a polisher before the coating?

    Also, is there any particular car wash soap or detailer spray that will help extend the durability and longevity of the coating?

    This is just my opinion, and I recently shared it here,

    Here's the question,

So the fact that this car has an enormous amount of painted surface and will take ages to wax isn't an issue. Also, it doesn't have to look great forever, just for a couple months. I think that coating the car is way more than is necessary. Using a product like Hydro2 would make the car look great and it would be easy to clean up when it rolls off the truck at the auction. But it's an old school car and something tells me that I should go old school and wax it.

    This is right up your alley, Mike. Do I wax it or use something else like Hydro2?

    While it may and probably does look great... nothing looks as good as a freshly machine polished and waxed car.

    Machine polishing will amp up the gloss on all of the gloss points and gloss panels. (I cover this in my how-to book).

    So to answer you, "yes" in my opinion if you really want to do it right, and you want the paint to look it's best, then machine polish the paint using a fine cut polish.

    The Wolfgang Finishing Glaze is NOT a glaze. It is a fine cut polish. It would be a perfect polish to prep the paint for a coating.

    Remember, if you use any machine or even hand applied polish, afterwards you're supposed to chemically strip the paint before applying the coating.

    I think there are some exceptions to this rule for example the review I just posted for the Gyeon compound, polish and primer, the primer leaves paint prepped for a coating and it is a fine cut polish too.

    Yes.

    Watch for my NEW Gtechniq product review today. I loved this new product.

    Paint coating goes on bare paint, like after decon and polishing. Glaze isn't needed on a new car.

    Re: Review & How-To: Wolfgang Uber Ceramic Paint Coating

    Thanks Mike! Sounds like I'll go ahead and use the finishing glaze as well. Even if I apply the finishing glaze, I should still use the Perfect Paint spray before the coating correct?

    Actually the Griots 6" polisher comes with an 8oz bottle of Pinnacle Advanced Finishing Polish as a free gift...I'm assuming I could use that instead of the Wolfgang finishing glaze

    Yes.

    The Perfekt Paint Prep should be used after any polishes. By the way, the Wolfgang Perfekt Paint Prep is easy to use and smells great! Smells like Bubble Gum if I remember correctly.









    Just be sure to have plenty of microfiber towels and inspect them to make sure they are debris-free before use.


    The Robert DiTerlizzi Method


    This is a technique my buddy Robert shared with me and I like it so much I show it at all my classes and always give him due credit as I don't steal other guys stuff.

    After you've done all the hard work the last thing you want to do is to put any swirls or scratches back into the paint. Now I wash all the microfiber towels we use here at the garage myself and I'm very meticulous and careful about the entire washing and drying process because the last thing I want to have happen is for Max to come out here to get a few microfiber towels to work on his cars and have some kind of contaminant in the towel.

    That said, before using any microfiber towel it's important to inspect it two ways.


    Visually Inspect
    First look closely at the towel, especially if the towel has a plush nap and inspect for any type of foreign contaminant that might be lodged in the nap. If discovered either remove the contaminant or get a different towel.


    Tactically Inspect
    Second, take your clean hand and run it over the face of the towel on both sides. Often times your sense of touch will detect foreign particles or contaminants that your eyes cannot see. If discovered, remove the contaminant or get a different towel.

    Do this for each towel. It only takes a few seconds to inspect your towels and it can save you a lot of heartache.





    RDM = the Robert DiTerlizzi Method


    Thanks Robert and for everyone reading this into the future, if you're not inspecting your microfiber towels by feeling EACH ONE before you wipe down something you've been buffing out all day long then start!


    Due credit where credit is due...

    Yes. The Pinnacle Advanced Finishing Polish is also a "fine cut polish". It's actually a great product.
