    LIVE Detailing Class - How to correct finicky paint without micro-marring





    Today at 3:00pm we will have a special guest in the Autogeek garage as well as his

    Anthony is having a difficult time polishing the FACTORY black paint on this 2006 Black Raven Cadillac CTS-V to perfection and he thinks it's because the paint is soft.

    We'll do our best to diagnose the paint to determine if it's soft or hard or somewhere in-between and then dial in a process for the paint correction step. After we dial in the paint polishing process we will then go over the steps to install a ceramic paint coating.





    REMEMBER

    LIVE Detailing Classes are broadcast every Thursday at 3:00pm Eastern time.

    Here's some pictures I took when the Cadillac arrived and the sun was shining directly down on the finish.

    The sun is the BEST Swirl Finder Light! To bad we can't hold it in our hand?

    Thanks Michael.

    I was surprised by how soft the paint on this GM car wax but that's why we do Test Spots.
