    Re: How to wet sand paint flat by hand by Mike Phillips

    Actually, just a fortnight ago I had a client come into the shop with his Ford Ranger concerned about the finish on his bonnet (hood) after having had it refinished after an altercation with a lamp post ...

    Whilst not the worst, it still wasn’t pretty. To be fair, it did look worse than what I captured in the pictures.

    I can see the difference in the before and after pictures.


    Light colored paint can be a challenge to correctly photograph and capture before and after results. So not only do detailers have to be detailers - for some, we also have to be photographers.

    Thanks and "yes" - there was a lot of orange peel.

    Sometimes I forget out all the cool cars we've worked on here at Autogeek over the last decade.


    If I could do it over again - I would create a single webpage that simple indexed ALL the cool cars and various projects that have been detailed here at Autogeek. I'm pretty confident it's MORE than any other forum or Facebook or Instagram or anything. Its easily in the hundreds and could be thousands.
