    Black C6 paint, nothing is working! (Makita 9227c)

    I have done several C5 and up vettes and very familiar with the rock hard clearcoat system and what it takes to correct it via my Makita 9227c. However, I have a black C6 right now that has proved to be way more challenging than the other cars.

    The defects are very light (on any other car with softer clear I would only do a single step on this), with random deeper defects that will most definitely require an aggressive approach.

    I can NOT get this car to finish down to my standards. M205 with the light polishing/finishing pad I have is leaving micromarring. The paint is factory and indeed very hard to cut and remove defects, but its finishing down as if its a softer paint. Heres what I have:

    M100, M101, M105 for cutting (LC purple wool, microfiber cutting discs, and the blue cutting hydro LC pads

    M205 for finishing (microfiber finishing disc, orange and red LC hydro pads

    This is the best I can do. I finishing with low speed, low pressure, and still getting this s h I t .


    The micromarring is very faint, and perhaps I'm being too picky, but I have to be.

    Sounds like you would benefit from a DA and the application of m205 on a finishing pad.

    I find the Menzerna Ceramiclear polishes rewarding on my Black C6.

    I'm in a pickle right now and unfortunately can not wait a few days for new products to ship in. Any suggestions on what to do with what I have?

    I just tried the FLEX on it and I'm still not happy. I cut it with M101 and microfiber cutting pad, finished it with M205 and microfiber polishing pad. And it STILL has RIDS and micromarring.

    And this is also a reminder to not trust your halogen lighting. This paint looks flawless under my halogens, however the Brinkman and LED lighting tells a different story! In my 5 years of paint correction, this is by FAR the most frustrated I have ever been. I have spend over 6 hours trying to find a combo that I'm happy with, and still am at square 1. That's 6 hours that in my opinion I can not and will not charge for.

    Kyle,

    I assume you have 'completed' your compounding and polishing over the entire car and thus your picture is representative of the finish overall?

    If so, have you tried another test spot with M100/orange & M205/black on the Flex?

    Sometimes, well probably most of the time MF pads don't finish well with the Flex IMO.

    With the Flex...

    What MF pads were you using?

    What speed were you finishing with?

    Did you try using a finish FOAM pad?
