Wet Sand and Buff, Before and After

July 16th, 2009 Comments off

 

Wet Sand and Buff, Before and After part 1. This classic 1969 Ford Mustang received a paint job a year ago. At the owner’s request, we were honored and privileged to perform a paint correction on this marvelous machine. This video shows paint flaws and imperfections that only a wet sand and buff can remedy. There may not be too many visible flaws on video as nothing can emulate the pure resolution of a human eye, but part 2 as you scroll further down, will justify this statement.

Wet Sand and Buff, Before and After part 2. This video emanates the true beauty of a classic american machine. Notice how all the flaws and imperfections have been eliminated and all that is left is a glossy wet appearance. This type of service is performed here at E Cars Auto Detailing in Aiea, Hawaii.

Flex Orbital Buffer Demonstration

June 28th, 2009 Comments off

This Flex Orbital Buffer Demonstration is performed here at E Cars Auto Detailing in Aiea, Hawaii with favorable results. In combination with a few other products, this Flex Orbital Buffer (model – XC 3401 VRG) proves to be the tool of choice when versatility is needed. You can get the best of both variations of buffing tools. A conventional orbital sander converted as a buffing tool provides too light of a cut and at times may drag out a job. Direct drive rotary buffers provide too much cutting which may result in paint swirls and even burns if not carefully used. The Flex Orbital Buffer (model – XC 3401 VRG) is a cross between the two, making it the best of both worlds. This tool demonstration provides utility and versatility without a compromise to quality. This tool is available at Pak Shak and Shea’s Luxury Detail in Aiea, Hawaii.

Wet Sanding and Buffing

June 12th, 2009 Comments off

Wet Sanding and Buffing paint (also known as Color Sanding) is by far the most commonly pursued option when it comes to correcting paint imperfections or restoring gloss to avoid the high price of a professional autobody shop. When done right, a proper wet sand will reduce the use of compounds and emanate a more pronounced shine after buffing. Applications for this type of service are normally used for gloss restoration, scratch removal and reduction, removing orange peel appearance, paint etching (caused by bird droppings, acids and similar caustic substances), clear coat reduction (autobody), or just getting that perfect flat water appearance. In this Wet Sanding and Buffing Paint demonstration, I facilitate the sanding process with a bare hand behind the sand paper. In my experience, hands can more easily differentiate pressure while sanding blocks can create gouging. Novice or first timers are highly advised to use sanding blocks with a light touch until confidence and experience is gained to facilitate efficiency. Avoid doom and disaster by practicing on body parts that you can obtain by your local auto salvage yards before attempting to offer this service and test variuos products to ascertain your working fashion. Style of work may vary from person to person so take heed on this valued information.
