    Thanks again Mike, Autogeek and Bill (the owner of the Hudson) for giving us the opportunity to work on this beauty.

    I was amazed at how well the new Rupes UHS Easy Gloss System worked. This one-step system from Rupes did an amazing job on the Hudson. The pads were firm yet felt like a memory foam, hard to describe. The polish had a long work time, easy to wipe off and no dusting.

    Thanks Todd for the great information on the new system and on Rupes in general.

    Awesome to see the outcome (Back on Page #1)!

    I was working last night while watching the Live Feed, I saw the booble head first I'm sure and started shaking - couldn't write where he was (buhundd wundshuelld!),

    Deleted text, tried to write anything worth describing his positioning, 'misclicked' the post quick reply button, and lost the contest! But it was VERY, VERY fun to participate.

    Unfortunately later I couldn't access the Live video, however I could follow everything now by the pics.

    Congratulations to everyone who participated, and I'll be sure to try UHS soon as I can.

    Also enjoyed the LSP used, it's my main LSP here and it's good to see it being used on such beauties and highlight vehicles.

    LIL question, 0 (Zero) dusting, or 0,1%, 2%, ...?)? Even if by user error? Thank you so very much.

    Kind Regards.

    The PBL Paint coating sure gave that car a glassy look!

    There was zero dusting that I noticed, not sure if everyone else had the same experience, maybe they will chime in.

    i want to thank Mike, Todd, Yancy and the whole Autogeek team for allowing me to use this new Rupes product and also to Bill for allowing us to working on this great car. How many of us get to say they worked on a 1954 Hudson Hornet Convertible.

    This new Rupes UHS system works great with no dusting whatsoever. this is another great product from a great company. this one is a winner for sure and great for a 1 step process.

    Thanks to Mike, Todd Helme and the Autogeek team for an awesome evening at the Show Car Garage. The Tech Session on the new Rupes Paint Polishing System emphasized the focus on precision in the design and manufacture of these random orbital polishers. The detailing team had an opportunity to work on the classic 1954 Hudson Hornet convertible with these superb machines and the pads and products designed to complement them. I am impressed with the balance of the Rupes Bigfoot 15 and enjoyed buffing with it. The results that were achieved compounding and polishing in one step were amazing. The evening was all fun with some light work, thanks to the excellent equipment. Thanks again, Bill, for sharing your classic car for the evening. Everyone went home happy, especially you.

    You're going to love the way the polishing compound and pad performs. Endless buffing cycle, zero dust, excellent defect removal and final polish results.

    Rupes kindly sent me 16 pads and 6 bottles of the product so we had plenty to work with.

    Speechless (again) about the outcome...just fantastic!

    I never realized before how similar the tail lights are to a '55 Chevy.
