    Forrest from Mothers was nice enough to send us a TON of product for our detail day a while back, thanks again Forrest, and that rubbing compound was GREAT! I'm sure when some of us of a certain age hear rubbing compound near our cars we might wanna fire it up and drive in the opposite directions but I saw this stuff work up close and personal and was impressed and felt safe using it.

    Because there's a 70 Chevelle on the show I'm looking forward to it, I know there's a mid-year Corvette in there somewhere, really wanna see that.

    On a side note, for future episodes, will there be cars that are "hammered" getting detailed, maybe a 2 part episode?

    Wow!

    Those results aren't typically when one would expect from that kit, but they speak for themselves!

    Looks fantastic!

    Just to be clear, we used the chemicals in the The Wax Attack 2 Kit for the paint correction but only used the actual polisher to machine apply the wax. I've used the Wax Attack 2 polisher to remove swirls and in fact made a video for Mothers showing it removing swirls out of a basecoat/clearcoat paint system on a 1965 GTO.

    Mother's sponsored this episode so this is why I'm only sharing the Mothers products as it relates to the episode.


    For what it's worth... the video footage of the Chevelle shows the swirls with the swirl finder light. The video footage does NOT show the swirls in the paint when the car was being unloaded. If you watch the episode again you'll see I'm standing on the driver's side of the car as it's being unloaded and the sun is behind me and lighting up the driver's side of the car. When it was backed out and the sun hit the paint you could see the holograms from a rotary buffer all over the paint.

    I hoped that one of the camera guys had captured the holograms. Whether they did or not I don't know. What I do know is the only camera angle they showed of the car being backed off the trailer was from the passenger side. This means the cameraman was shooting into the sun and the passenger side paint was in shaded. So now visible holograms on the TV show but I was there and I'm telling you... that car was in dire need of swirl removal.


    More to come too....
