    Review and How-To: Gyeon Compound, Polish and Primer - 1932 Ford Roadster detailed by Mike Phillips

    Review and How-To: Gyeon Compound, Polish and Primer - 1932 Ford Roadster detailed by Mike Phillips



    Some reviews are work, (it's part of my job), and then some reviews are fun, (it's part of my job). This review is going to be fun.


    This is my buddy Rich's 1932 Ford Roadster. Looks pretty good in this picture huh?

    Note the clock in the background, it's 6:20am Thursday morning, April 20th, 2017 when I took these pictures. This is been a busy week. Detailed a 1972 Buick on Tuesday, Detailed a brand new Mercedes-Benz S 550 yesterday and today this old 2-door Ford. Detailing is one thing, taking the pictures and the creating a write-up about doubles the time needed, so a guy has to start early.






    Let's throw a little light on this project...





    The SCANGRIP Multimatch light is rechargeable, note the cord is wrapped around the tripod?




    Not good...







    Wait - paint looks good here doesn't it?





    My personal, trusty dusty SCANGRIP Sunmatch swirl finder light...





    Frame-up the shot....





    Ouch!













    Wait... I think the trunk is okay....





    Nope... need the same attention all the other body panels need....






    After being on 4-5 episodes of Competition Ready TV and multiple job locations, she's still by my side...







    Well at least the dash is good to go....





    Nope - I typed too soon....





    This one is deep... I don't think it's going to buff out but I'm pretty sure it can be improved...





    Well it's now 830am, took some time to take the "before" shots plus I took pictures to update this thread,

    Detailing a beater! - 1972 Buick Riviera Boattail - Review: Lake Country Force Hybrid Foam Pads


    Time to get to work...





    Just did the Test Spot after a full wipe-down and claying the paint.
    H







    Yep - that's right... single stage black paint.

    I'll have to be Uber careful!



    Trunk lid is done and so is this pad...

    After compounding the entire car next up was polishing and then using the Gyeon Primer







    Both the compound and the polish wipe off easy...

















    Time mark...




    Next up, machine apply the Gyeon Primer - For this I'm switching over to the FLEX XFE7 with 6.5" ThinPro red foam waxing pad...
