    Past the point of No Return - Some paint just cannot be saved

    Past the point of No Return - Some paint just cannot be saved


    Ever since we did some work with Wayne Carine on Chasing Classic Cars I get people from all over the country contacting me about restoring the paint on their car.

    In some cases the people that watch Wayne's show live around here and somehow find us, such is the case with Vincent and his 1940 Packard...








    Unstable and Past the Point of No Return
    After I machine polished and then rubbed the paint down with multiple applications of Meguiar's #7 the whiteness in the paint could not be removed. This is a sign the pigments are so old and overexposed to the sun that they have become unstable.










    I had a chance to work with Vincent today showing him a few techniques for rubbing out paint by hand followed by machine polishing.

    Even though most people own new cars with clear coats, ever since that segment with Wayne aired guys with old cars and single stage paint just keep coming out of the woodwork...

    I love working with SS paint.
    Maybe it reminds me of my first car that was SS

    Don't forget not just 'old' cars have SS paint. NA Miatas (89-97) in non metallic colors came stock with SS paint.

    I found the Autogeek/Wayne Carini commercial interesting because Wayne acted so surprised at the paint correction techniques demonstrated by Mike. For heaven's sake, he's had paint and detail guys on the payroll for decades.

    I have seen some of the cars on the show after the detailer was finished and could see swirls in many of the shots. Being a detailer for high priced cars doesn't mean you're good. Been to many auctions such as Barrett Jackson and have seen cars I sure wouldn't want to have people think I detailed them.
