Hey guys, Oh, and I did this today, outside. 99 degrees, full sun. So my entire process revolved around products that could be used in the sun. And yes, I'm sunburned as a MF'er. Here's the nuts and bolts of this detail! One of the hardest i've ever done... And the most rewarding! It was fantastic! The after looks like a whole new car, and even though the before pics may not look so bad, the car looked 'grey' in person... it was a shame. Not to mention, this was the first time i've ever tackled touching up such a prominent ding on a car... Anyway, on to the process: Wash w/ NXT carwash Clay touch up ding (sand, primer, 4 coats color, 4 coats clear, wetsand w/2000) Perfect it - fine cut w/ Wool pad on PC (6) Perfect it -fine cut w/ cutting pad on PC (6) Chemical Guys Lasercut w/ cutting pad on PC (6) x2 NXT by hand - let haze for 30 minutes Natty's Blue by hand - let haze for 30 minutes Coat of NXT on the wheels, tires done with turtlewax platinium gel Leather on interior done with Blue Magic Leather, vinyl deep cleaned with Blue magic leather and vinyl cleaner. wood was waxed with Natty's blue. A couple of small reviews will follow the pics... The paint chip: Before: After: The paint: Before: After: The car: Before: After: Random reflection shot: Interior: Ok... Thoughts? A few things... 3M Perfect it Fine cut is still my power cutting compound of choice. Nothing compares. I've tried a bunch of the other popular ones, for some reason, I keep coming back to this... I love it. Laserbuff = Awesome! It's a great medium cutting/polishing/filling product. It darkens the paint, smooths it out, and leaves a smooth look and feel to the paint that i've had to use two and three products to get in the past... BlueMagic leather/Vinyl cleaner can get anything out. I'm convinced. It's like a miracle product for me. This car's interior is completely tan, including the dash, which means it was ridiculiously dirty. The cleaner, along with a microfiber towel, got every last scuff out... I was shocked. The turtle wax tire gel is a neat concept, a bit messy, and a bit too shiny for my tastes. But it's durability has shown on my other vehicles, so I am sticking by it... NXT paste was a bit finicky in the sun, but I knew that already. It left some streaking, but I was able to get all of it out. Ok. That's it for me. I gotta go get another beer. and take a nap. I'm beat.
