    Re: SCANGRIP Sunmatch - Showing Wet Sanding Scratches and Holograms

    I need them too but I put 6500K high lumen LED lights on my spotlight cases. It does the work now.

    I would love the Scangrip too, but my 600 lumen flashlight works very well. At times I have to pull the light further away from the paint because it is too bright and the light washes out my ability to actually see anything

    Another trick I've learned with these new high power lights is checking glass for small streaks, smears, of the occasional total missed spot. Bring the car in your garage and turn off the lights. Shine the flashlight at the glass at the right angle and you can see the smallest of imperfections. Inside, in the dark it also makes it easy to tell if the imperfection is exterior or interior.

    If I was doing this professionally and needing concours level paint perfection I would be checking each stage of my work in the dark with a Scangrip or equivalent. You cannot miss an imperfection when you are literally scanning every square inch after each step.

    Saw a video somewhere about holding light away from you and shine back towards you at 45 degree angle to surface. Made a world of difference.
