Default Junkman's "How to Completely Repair Your Paint Damage - The Videos!

That's right boys and girls, The Junkman has went and made paint correction so easy, a caveman could do it! In the following videos, I cover the entire process from start to finish. The first two videos are worth their weight in gold for the information alone. I don't even start working on the paint until the third video but the amount of information I cover in the first two videos is priceless. Do NOT skip through them!

If you have ever been apprehensive about using a machine to rid your paint of scratches and swirls, you will definitely not be worried after watching this video series. I break it down to a level where a 10 year old can watch these videos and start fixing paint. The supplies and equipment that I use are readily available in the USA and abroad (for the most part). If you have a serious desire to finally fix your paint and about 1 hour and 54 minutes, then this video series is totally for you. After you have watched this series, you will not believe how easy I have made this.

So sit back and get out some popcorn, kick up your feet and enjoy. The Junkman is about to burst onto your screen in a way that only the Junkman can!


Here are your before and after shots, which won't make a lot of sense until you have watched the videos, especially when you see how the number "2" ended up in the paint!


BEFORE...




AFTER!






Part 1 - Hey boys and girls! Finally, a video series that takes the process of paint correction from the beginning to the end (from claying to waxing). Although I do not apply any wax at the end, I cover everything else in detail. This series is 1 hour and 54 minutes long so that should give you an idea as to how much detail I go into.

In this first video, I talk in detail about exactly what paint correction is. I also go into detail about the polishing technique you should use as well as the best product on the market that you should buy. I cover other topics too so just sit back and kick up your feet. This video is 15 minutes and 7 seconds long.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KP-eAddv2sk



Part 2 - In this video, I go into detail about exactly what I use to remove the paint damage within this video series. I name and visually show every piece of equipment as well as all of the products necessary to do paint correction. In some cases, I even offer up a location where you can find the products that I use. I talk about why I chose to use the products that I use as well as what I don't use. If you want a list of these items, WATCH THIS VIDEO.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h_0nr6XPEHM



Part 3 - Okay, in this video I identify the damage that we are going to repair. I even go as far to create some damage just to ensure that my paint will be more jacked up than your paint. I then go into detail about claying, and what it does for your finish. Last of all, I show how to assemble the PC-7424XP so that we can start the polishing process. The video following this video will be in high definition so that you can clearly see the damage and the effectiveness of my repair.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PyJYtYhz9RQ



Part 4 - Because I wanted the viewers of this video to be able to see the results of the work that I did in high detail, I uploaded this video in high definition. That took 12 hours!

In this video, I actually go into the proper technique for polishing with the PC-7424XP, showing me using the machine properly. I show the polishes that I use, the pads that each polish is used on, how to work the polisher and how much polish should be used. I also talk about the importance of not using too much polish and clogging up the pores in the pads, which makes the whole process worthless. I go into the discussion of how long to work a polish and when to stop (after a polish flashes). I show which order the polishes are used and explain why you use them in that order.

One thing that I stress in this video is the importance of a solid technique. I talk about and show the technique that I use, as well as how to ensure that you are developing a solid technique. As I say often in this video series, "Technique trumps product 365, 24/7. No matter who's polishes you decide to use, none of them will work worth a darn if your technique sucks. Technique rules!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P0rbZOeNN4o



Conclusion - I recap my process and allow you into my mindset concerning paint correction and caring for your paint.

The Junkman



Bird Poop Etching Removal

This video is a second take on my initial bird dropping/love bug etching video. In this video, I actually experience bird poop etching damage on a unprotected panel. I go through the same process that I did in my first video on this subject and repair the damage.

The main thing that you should take from this video is the importance of clay in the process of removing this damage as well as the importance of addressing this damage very quickly. Etching begins immediately once any undesirable substance lands on your clear coat or paint and the longer that you wait before addressing it, the harder it will be to remove. Hard water stains, tree sap and bird droppings are the most wicked of substances to leave on your clear coat or paint, especially if your clear coat or paint is not swirl free. If your clear coat or paint is swirled up, then the etching damage will penetrate twice as fast and become more permanent much quicker.

Clay pulls the etching damage out of the clear coat or paint WITHOUT removing any clear coat provided you are using the lightest type of clay, which I refer to as consumer grade clay. That's why you always start with clay first. The object is to remove as much of the damage as possible first, so that you don't have to remove as much clear coat or paint. After all, there is only so much clear coat and paint on your car.

Junkman,
You really are a paint care junkie. Ive never seen anyone that cares about
a cars finish as much as the junkman lol.
I was a bit disappointed you dont do this as a side job. My Z could use the junkmans paint correction and such.
Keep up the good work!

If I did this as a side job, nobody would come see me because my prices are high! Just to give you an idea, I did a 57' Corvette for a guy. I told him it would be $2000 and I would need the car for 3 weeks. That's just for the outside of the car. About the only folks who come see me are the Jay Leno's!

However, I'll show you how to do it for free.

I have always been nervous about using porter cable (though all my friends have them) but after seeing your videos, it seems very easy to use. I think that's on my list of things

Like I said in the beginning of this thread, you should never have to do this entire process more than once, ever. The only thing you should have to do is use a last step polish like Adam's Fine Machine Polish, Meguiar's M205 (or #9) or Z5. You should be following all of my practices on how to touch your paint.

You do wax regularly, correct?

Once you see the results that you get from the polisher, you'll kick yourself for not doing it sooner.

On your color car, the maintenance is going to be much easier as the damage will not show as easy. You can get away with a lot.

I am glad someone cares enough about others to put this kind of instructions on video and give it away for free. That's great man!

I have 20 20 vision and I had a hard time seeing any swirl marks in sunlight, my dim garage, or under my 500 watt lights. I did see a couple fine scratches but I had to position my sight with the right angle of light. My black b pillars were different and I could see scratches in any lighting. But I still wanted to clay and polish my z. But it's true silver hides the impurfections.

It's a gorgeous car. If I had the room for another show car in my garage, I'd buy one. I am not a performance junkie as some folks are, I'm more of a cruiser. I could cruise a Z all night long as it probably gets great gas mileage. Plus, that one sharp looking ride, as all the Z's have been through the years.

Watched almost all of your videos but one thing i didnt see was how are you cleaning the pads after use?

Okay after browsing through more of your youtube videos i found you use the gritguard pad washer. Its expensive so it wont be in my near future but maybe later.

I know on one of the videos you put to much product on. Im wondering after you apply product the first time and the pad is still has product on it as you move onto new spots, can you start to use less product as you go on?

I was using the adams swirl and haze remover and i started to notice like all wax applications less is more.

You are CORRECT! Better yet, you can use a couple of squirts of detail spray on the pad instead of applying more SHR. This will help flush the pad of that excess product and allow you to stretch that application where you used too much product. This is also a helpful thing to do when working in direct sunlight (when shade is not an option).

Another question. Does Fine machine polish produce a better finish than Swirl and Haze remover? I understand the concept Swirl and Haze is more abrasive but do they both leave the same finish or do i need to follow every thing up with Fine Machine polish?
