    Re: 2020 McLaren 720S Spider MSO

    Beautiful car, and as always, beautiful work.

    But I gotta ask - How do you pay $51,000.00 for a paint option and then accept it with a need for polishing? I would think that a "as near perfect as...

    When I was restoring those 60s cars, I polished the stainless trim on a buffer wheel with stick compounds.

    Not sure how Tom (TMQ) is doing it, but whatever he's doing looks like it's working out...

    Tried out the Rupes Mille for 2-3 hours today for the first time.

    I used my neighbor’s truck hood (Chevy Colorado) as the test specimen. It’s a medium/dark blue-gray metallic paint that is far...

  10. Re: Looks like its past the point of no return or just severely oxidized? Can it be fixed?

    If I had that job, I think I'd do the Comet Cleanser method to remove the bulk of the dead paint before touching it with any pad besides an aggressive wool on a rotary. Even then I'd probably do the...

    Re: What did you do today non-detailing related?

    I'm going to try to get out of painting it and see if the customer wants to do that himself. If I can't talk him into it I'll probably prime it with Zinser 123 and finish it with a gloss exterior...
