    Really Great!

    So what process did you end up with after trying different combos?

    Re: 2001 Ford F-150 BLACK

    Thank you all for the kind comments. When I first saw the condition of the paint I figured it would be a single stage. Once I got started I didn't see any paint transfer onto any of my pads or towels. So, I figured it had a clear coat. I may be wrong.

    We're confident you educated the owner he couldn't treat your results like he has been treating the truck all this time or be right back to where it was before you operated with your surgical expertise.

    I sure did Mike. I'll check back with him in a couple of months to see how he's doing with maintaining his truck.

    I like your work area too, the open air garage. Can't do that in Wisconsin but looks nice there.
    Thanks BlueZero. I love this work space as well. This past weekend was a bit warm but for some reason I get a nice cool breeze when I'm working there. Really makes the jobs easier to work with.

    Thanks Ryan. That paint definitely had quite a bit of orange peel.

    Thanks Tom. His buddies were saying that too when they saw it. The sun was setting when I delivered it so the lighting was just right and made the paint stand out even nicer.

    Thanks Sydster.
    PROCESS
    After washing and claying I started out with #80 and a W8006 pad on a G110That oiled up the paint nicely but wasn't doing much.
    What ended up working for me was a wool pad on the rotory using #84. Followed by #83 on 7006 pad and finishing up with two passes of #80 on a 8006 pad also on the rotory. That cleaned up the hazing and the very light scratches that were left over very nicely. I finished up with one pass of #66 to make sure I had no holograms left over.

    Thanks again all for the kind comments!

    I totally agree. When I said 13 hours they looked at me and knodded their heads in confusion but were still amazed at the end results.

    whatever that cost to the owner it was well worth it, great save on that truck. To bad many just dont understand the time and energy it takes to do that. Many get used to their cookie cutter, $20 express wash and wax and are taken back sometimes at the time and cost to restore a vehicle's finish properly.

    Your car came out beautiful. I havent seen an F-150 that beautiful in a while.

    Every car is beautiful. Some cars need more cleaning and beautification than others.
