    Thanks for attending last night Roshan, hope you had fun helping us with this project...

    I agree. We've had them here at Autogeek for a few months now but I've been waiting for the right project to test them out and last night's project fit the bill.

    I'm uploading a video to YouTube as I type and next I'm going through the pictures. I'll created a dedicated thread for the CarPro Denim Orange Peel Removal Pads too...

    Great night! See you guys next time.

    Thanks for helping out Den, you're always a great addition to the team.

    Can't wait to get your GTO here!


    Been kind of busy today, working on the pictures right now...

    You know, that wax we used was nice, but for the price I thout that it could have gone a little farther on the application. It seemed like I was constantly having to re-apply wax to my pad after only a few runs. The upside to that is that it looks awesome. Really brought back the life into the sub-par(and scratched) paint job that was done to the truck. The pads were great and worked really well with minimal effort.

    Enjoyed working on the five window Chevy pick-up. Used the Scholl products and what I noticed was a loner working time, product stayed wet and was easy to work with. The results were awesome and should add value to the truck at resale. Thanks Mike.

    Thanks Skoob...

    It's a labor of love... getting these types of cars and in this case a hotrod truck in here to work on makes for good eye candy but there's always a certain amount of risk with any project so I appreciate all the guys that show up and the level of professionalism they bring to the table.

    I have the "after" pictures to post next. I just stepped out to the garage to test out the Auto Finesse Rejuvenate Pre-Wax Cleaner and the Passion Luxury Car wax on my own truck and I'll try to get these pictures up today too...

    This was the first time I've used products from Scholls including the S3 Gold Edition High Performance Compound. When applied using a dual action polisher, a Flex 3401 specifically, it was removing defects just fine but leaving small half circle scratches at the same time. My thoughts were that it might have been for rotary buffer use only but I just checked the info on the product page on the AG Store and it states it can be used with both rotary buffers and dual action polishers.

    Scholl Concepts S3 Gold Edition High Performance Compound


    Use S3 Gold Edition with a dual action or rotary polisher.
    I'm kind of busy this week but maybe next week I can do some testing on one of my black paint panels.

    Agreed. I found the paint on all the body panels of this truck to be on the HARD side. The owner says he was told it's Glasurit Paint not that that's a good thing or a bad thing as I think any paint system can be made to be hard or soft.

    The paint on the hood was new and a lot softer or easier to buff on compared to the rest of the truck.

    Sure left a nice clear, high gloss finish...
