    I started practicing paint correction on my own car recently and I notice it is kind of hard to get the compound off my car after I do a few passes. I am using a griots orange correction pad and Maguire's ultimate compound. I have tried priming the pad with the compound and it makes a little difference as well as dropping the speed to 3/4 on the DA polisher but i feel like I am using too much compound with the result i am getting. Any tips if I should try a new compound or pad, or mix in water or a pad conditioner?

    This is the first time I saw your hair I thought it will look worst than I thought but I said it looked cute on you and should take your hat off because I was like they would have no hair so I wear a cap and they start calling me boald guy and I got confident enough to take my hat off

    Not sure if you've answered this or not. How many coats of wax do you put on cars you detail and do you need to apply more coats to the hood and roof since they're more in direct sunlight/heat?

    I’m sorry to say, but without the mud, few toupees made from dogs’ hair, food reserves for the upcoming zombie apocalypse, as well, as occasional human remains in the trunk....I only found the paint correction part interesting.....awesome job, by the way! Back to your channel to search for my know....vomit, feces, rotten food, decomposing squirrels and the mud from the rivers of Babylon covering the car’s exterior.....fermented dairy products in the trunk for the aromatic experience while cruising on hot summer day would be a lovely addition. By the way, have you ever encountered a car in a condition that made you throw up? If yes, could you describe it....if you want to? I know a guy in Canada.

    So a post-it note would be about 3.6 thousands of an inch thick, which is about 91 microns (25.4 microns per .001")... if you remove 4 microns per paint correction you could do it 23 times before removing all the clear coat.... If my math is wrong please correct me.. Question? Does the paint depth gauge give you the total thickness of the base coat and the clear coat, or can you determine the thickness of just the clear coat??? Thanks for the video

    We had a wax like this on a electric Porsche I hadn't waxed a car for a few years so my partner let me do one at his dad's business and I found it was easier to buff off after leaving it on for a few minutes and the results were amazing, and the car smelled like mint too since the wax was mint scented x

    My parents got a 2018 lexus ES from my grandparents. It had swirl marks and was pretty dirty, since it was never used by my grandparents. They were shocked how it turned out when I cleaned it. I was never able to get rid of the swirl marks very effectively but watching you do it in real time really helped find a technique. Thank you!

    Is it considered a bad idea to polish different parts of the car every time you hand wash it rather than just doing it all at the same time? I don’t always have lots of time to dedicate but if it’s best practice to do it all at once then that’s what I’ll have to do
