    Default Paint correction on a WRX

    Black Subaru WRX
    “Two step paint correction process”
    From time to time, I get to work on some paints that are just a pure joy to perform correction work on…this car was one of them! Porsche black, Ferrari Nero Daytona black, and BMW sapphire black are my top three favorite color cars to work on. Yes, I love black cars!!!

    Process was a thorough washing to remove any previous paint protection followed by a paint surface prep with the speedy prep towel (new tool that replaces claying for me when doing correction work – faster and just as good, while being MUCH easier on the hands). Then came the correction end of things…Meguiars D300 on an orange pad, followed by Menzerna 106 on a black pad. This paint was pretty soft, yet didn’t scratch with a towel when removing the polish and/or wax, so that was a good thing!

    Products used on this car were:
    Meguiars D300, hyper dressing @ 2:1, degreaser, last touch, glass cleaner
    Menzerna 106, powerlock sealant
    Speedy surface prep towel from nanoskin
    Chemical guys citrus wash and clear

    Befores/afters:

    Never heard of the Speedy Prep towel, or anything for that matter, to replace claying. How did you like it?

    Looks slick.

    I like it, really cleans the paint fast and effectively. It will scuff and mar just like claying will, but since I only do corrections (clay before polishing, and polishing after claying), the marring is removed the same. The HUGE benefit, the hands are not cramped after!!!

    Yeah claying multiple cars a day gets tedious very quickly.

    2nd that on the claying towel, it's amazing when it comes to speed and asside from the minimal hand cramps it leaves little marring.

    Great work on the subbie.
