Hey boys and girls, long time no see! With that said, I created a video series on how to do paint correction using a machine for novices shortly after the last time I was here. Somehow, I never posted that video series over here. That was around 2012. Since then, that series has had over a million views. I accidentally deleted those videos from my Youtube channel but someone had saved them and sent them back to me. I combined all of those videos into one video and that is what this tread is all about.

I would have never known that those videos were gone until a LOT of people started asking about them. I didn't realize how popular they still are given how old they are but after going through and editing annotations within them, I realized that the information contained within them is just as relevant today as it was back then. So I am going to post that video here for everyone to enjoy and partake in the knowledge being offered.

If you have been apprehensive about putting a polisher on your paint, this video is definitely one you want to watch. I break this process down to grade school level and if you can't successfully fix your paint with a machine after watching this video, you never tried. I guarantee that you will have success if you do what I show in this video and the video will prove that too you. All you have to do is watch and take notes.

There are no discount codes, special offers or a product list associated with this video because there are A TON of different products that you can use to do what I did in this video. Some of you will have products sitting in your garages right now that will more than work. Some of you may have even purchased products that didn't work for you, despite praise from other folks. It could be the product or it might be YOU. This video is going to answer that question for you.

So get your pen and paper ready, cook some popcorn and kick up your feet. The learning starts when you click the play button. 馃槈馃憤

I'm still subscribed to your channel from when I watched those videos many years ago. I saw that you had reposted them and was watching again a couple days ago. Funny how you don't realize how video quality has improved so much over the years until watching an older video.

Tell me about it. This is like VCR quality! Luckily, I was able to clean it up enough to make it watchable. 馃槈

I used these videos as my guide when I paint corrected my SS shortly after I bought it in 2016. It was my first time ever using polishing compound and an RO polisher and it turned out great (thanks to Junkman鈥檚 thorough advice).

It鈥檚 about time to do it again. I use the two bucket wash and top shelf microfiber but, you know, black car is going show every. single. swirl. Maybe that鈥檚 how I鈥檒l celebrate 5 years of ownership this summer.

If you are doing everything exactly as you should be, all you should need is a light polish to remove every scratch from your paint but if you need to use a compound again, something is wrong with how you are approaching your paint maintenance. A compound like M105 should only be necessary ONCE in the life of your paint because that product removes measurable amounts of clear coat. It is measured in microns when using the PC, but you still want to keep as much of that clear on your car as possible. Five years is pretty good though, as I have seen guys do this entire regiment twice a year. I would have to see their paint in 5-years. Good luck! 馃槈

I didn鈥檛 actually use compound the first time either, just polish with the different pads you recommended.

OMG Junkman posts here???? I've been thinking about seriously sitting down to your channel and trying to learn how to fix my long-neglected and abused paint.

Well, you are in luck. My most popular videos on how to do paint correction with a machine are combined into the first post in this thread. Everything you need to know about fixing paint with a machine is in that video.
