    Time lapse paint correction with 3D ONE

    I have had people ask me sometimes about a little time saver I do when using 3D ONE. Now this doesn't always work but when it does it can cut down time. This Lexus Lx570 had paint that responded well to this.

    I cut with my 21mm and microfiber cutting pad. Then I leave the residue on the paint and switch to a finishing pad with a drop or two of ONE then proceed to finish polish before wiping off.

    Re: Time lapse paint correction with 3D ONE

    Interesting way of doing a one step... Well... it's really a 1.5 step

    Not having to wipe between the first and second step does save a lot of time. I might have to give this a try.

    How long does it take you to do a whole vehicle (say a midsize car) using that technique?

    I won't be using 3D one anymore, I just hate how hard that thing is to wipe off. And since I normally use one steps before coating, having to spend 3 to 4 times longer to degrease the panel is not worth it for me. Love that it doesn't dust but I will go back to Meguiars products for now

    2-3 hours tops. The key with one is a little bit of product. You should be able to see right thorugh it as its worked in.

    Re: Time lapse paint correction with 3D ONE

    Good job and thanks for posting. I have a black Supra coming to me next month that I may use the bottle of 3D ONE that I've not really ever used. I've just found many other better products that truly allow for a one step correction.

    Re: Time lapse paint correction with 3D ONE

    3d one works well for me. I add a couple of plops of speed to the pad and it helps tremendously with the wipe off.
    It takes very little one to do a great job. If it's hard to remove, it's probably too much product or paint is hot. Try a couple of little drops of speed and see if that helps.

    Very good idea I will be using this on every detail I can starting tomorrow. I will try to apply your method with as many one steps as possible.

    Glad I’m not the only one having problems with 3D One. The wipe off is horrible. I’ve tried it 3 times and every time it reminds me of trying to remove 1970’s Liquid Turtle Wax. Maybe we got a bad batch, but I’m not willing to buy more to find out.

    Re: Time lapse paint correction with 3D ONE

    Funny that 3D Polish+ has none of these problems.

    Were the chemists at 3D too quick to release this?

    I'm a big fan of 3D, but I have heard way too many negative things about 3D One from guys that have extensive time using and testing a lot of products.

    Bummer.
    It is no coincidence that man's best friend cannot talk.

    Re: Time lapse paint correction with 3D ONE

    Used the “1.5 step” today save an hour I have never used 3d one. I used the process with a diffentproduct worked well. I bet meguiars 110 would work in 1.5 step range I was just about to buy 3D one but the last set of comments about tough wipe off made me pump brakes detailing is tough enough no need to sign up for that type of issue.
