    Answering your last two replies.

    First please let me know if I should buy some more different product (brand/type) for the car vs the Marine 31.

    Yeah no... like mentioned, in most cases, marine grade product that use abrasives tend to be too aggressive for thin, delicate automotive clearcoats.

    See these two articles,

    Clearcoats are thin by Mike Phillips

    and

    Clearcoats are Scratch-Sensitive

    Probably could use a wax/sealant once cleaned.
    If you don't have your heart set on using any type of ceramic coating where you'll want/need to chemically strip the paint, then I'd recommend keeping it super simple. Get a 32 ounce bottle of the BLACKFIRE One Step and thank me later. You can use this on both the paint and the clear bra - it's that safe. AND - super easy to wipe off.

    I appreciate all the help you have given me!

    Spoil yourself - take one or both of my upcoming classes. I guarantee they are the MOST hands-on classes on Planet Earth and a hell of a lot of fun.



    Link to info on both the upcoming car and boat detailing classes




    Maybe someone reading this that has attended either or both of the classes can be a witness?

    Examples...


    It takes LOT Of time to create the "picture threads" like I do for my classes and these are far from complete but they still do a good job of showing you what Mike Phillips car and boat detailing class looks like.
