    Save paint correction time - count your section passes OUT LOUD! by Mike Phillips

    Save paint correction time - count your section passes OUT LOUD! by Mike Phillips



    • This is a technique I practice myself.
    • I also teach this in all my detailing classes.
    • If you attended Mobile Tech Expo this year, (last January 2020), I taught 8 different classes and shared this technique in each class.



    Now it's a video.


    Also in the video I explain how and why to buff out a panel using ONLY a back-n-forth pattern and NOT a crosshatch pattern. You need to know when to one and not the other.






    Put this technique into practice and I guarantee you can cut out up to an HOUR of wasted time, (maybe more) doing unnecessary section passes when buffing out a car.

    I actually watched the video on YouTube, I think it’s good idea.

    Count out loud , so you don’t wonder off into space.
    My goal in life is to love God, family and myself. To love others and treat others right.

    Good info. I definitely "wonder" while buffing out a vehicle. I will put this in play. Thanks Mike

    Yep - that's the premise... and as much time as I've spent in space while buffing out cars NASA ought to give me a badge or something?

    This is such a simple but outstanding tip.

    Iíll admit, I was skeptical at first. After doing it on a vehicle, though, I was blown away by the efficiency I worked with.

    To have a little fun, I was in the garage screaming out my count over the noise of my buffer and my wife came out to see what was the matter with me. I said itís my new buffing technique.
