Polishing machines, pads and compounds designed specifically for the use of Paint Correction.
Although hand polishing looks great, it does not remove defects with the same efficiency as other methods. A polishing machine allows you to take detailing to the next level.
Try thinking of the paint as a flat surface. Anything on or above the surface is raised - peaks. Anything below the surface, scratches and other defects - valleys. By combining the right pad, compound and machine configuration, you can efficiently level the surface, thus removing the defects. Anyone can machine polish a car with the right practice and precautions.
- Analyse the Surface
- Carry Out Test Sets
- Take Care of Yourself
Analyse the Surface: Inspecting the cars paint visibly will determine any areas that may cause an issue such as clear coat failure and rust. But that won't tell you how much paint is left. A paint depth gauge can be bought to help spot danger areas you may not have seen by eye.
Carry Out Test Sets: Using the least aggressive cutting methods first allows you to gauge what the paint needs and learn how it responds. Clear coats vary greatly so this leaning experience is essential for detailers hoping to transition from enthusiast to professional. Should it need more cut you can step up but if you take off too much, there's no going back without repainting. Not every car will need multiple stages and with a little time spent doing test sets you can remove just the right amount of clear coat to get the job done. Practice on scrap panels if possible.
Take Care of Yourself: Machine polishing a car is rewarding, but can be fatiguing. Shock absorbing gloves, kneeling pads and wheeled stools are all good ideas to mitigate the risk. Try adjusting your posture and position by the car to reduce strain.
