    Anyone ever seen this technique?

    I couldnt watch the entire video due to feelings of an impending heartattack. Was just wondering if anyone else had seen this technique to get rid of overspray etc...Maybe some of you guys actually use it?

    Re: Anyone ever seen this technique?

    Is that a plastic razor blade he's using on that? I personally would of used a claybar first. Typically you can get most overspray off with that. Seems like he'd be inducing a ton of scratches with that razor blade and just causing himself more work. Also, it looks like he's using a regular terry cloth to wipe the car clean. Probably just put some more swirls and scratches back into the paint. End result seems to look OK, but I'd be curious to see what it looks like in a full sun shot or some lights on it.

    Personally, I wouldn't do it this way.

    Yea I just managed to make it to the end...(took some blood pressure meds) and while his "final inspection" looks good, im very puzzled by a lot of what I see to be absolutely terrible techniques.

    I dont understand why you would buff a wax, let alone with a WOOL PAD, and follow up with an home depot orbital with the very same "Wax" to remove swirls?

    Is this actually a tried and true method, or should I be ignoring it like 90% of the "paint correction" threads on youtube?

    every step he did he seemed to be rushing. Why? take your time with it. no over lap with either polisher, or lack of, and that towel is flopping around like crazy!! lol

    I personally believe that in roughly 2-3 weeks and a few washes that car will be scratched and swirled to high heaven. There is probably a large amount of fillers on the paint masking the true condition of the paint. It is difficult enough to finish down hologram free with a fine polish and no cut pad. I doubt he can do it with a wool pad and throwing the buffer around like that.

    Re: Anyone ever seen this technique?

    I can't view the video right now because its blocked, but I have used plastic razor blades and a high lube solution (QD or shampoo) to remove stubborn road paint and tar. It gets the "clump" off and then follow with clay. As long as the work area is washed and the edges of the the plastic blade are rouned prior to use, it can be used without inducing scratches. Not sure about the terry towel...i never recommend that.... Just my two cents...

    BTW, the plastic blades come in handy when you get a car that has left over baked on wax in the creases of the emblems and badging when QD and MF or brush will not suffice.

    Re: Anyone ever seen this technique?

    With that much overspray you have no choice but to use a razor blade or lacquer thinner. BC2 is a great product to buff with. I knew a detail shop that did mainly used cars , and used BC2 all the time on 95% of the used cars he did and they came out great. He would follow with Megs #26. Whats wrong with terry towels? What do you think we used before MF towels.
