    correction day!
    watch where I keep my menzerna!

    pulled out my new toy

    and my microfibers

    first was the claying: (Swissvax Paint Rubber w/ Adam's detail spray as LUBE and a DD red waffle weave for drying)
    this is a good example of what EACH panel pulled up:

    heres the culprit:
    I tried using just 106FA via green pad...huhuh the BMW clear laughed and laughed....even worse it scoffed at SIP on an orange pad!!!!! Power Gloss via yellow pad was the star today followed by SIP via green pad.( and heating it up made it break down beautifully
    a nice example of how the panels looked:

    at the end of the day see where I left the menzerna?:

    today I got the flat panels corrected (doors, hood,front/rear wings etc...) tomarrow is front and rear bumpers and swissvax!

    The tape on the door handle.....Is that so you dont have to dig polish from the gaps when your done? I see lots of you use it.

    What did that heater keep the garage temp at for ya?

    Paint correction looks good :woo:

    Very nice correction :applause: pictures look great.

    Oooh nice paint gauge, just curious what were the readings on the vehicle?

    Let me know what your thoughts are on the ETG, I started off with an ETG but returned it and got my PosiTectors.

    Thank you for sharing and look forward to the rest of the vehicle :thumb:

    Oh and yea keeping Menzerna heated like you did makes it perform great :woo:

    the readings were pretty much 160-170 across the board. One door was repainted and read around 246 i think....i really like it and dont see why i'd change...it reads very accurate

    the menz performed beautifully today i suspect the heaters had something to do w/ it?

    I've gauged only one BMW so far, I was just curious to see what gauge values you were getting to add the readings to my gauge reading collection, thank you for sharing :thumb:

    Oh I agree, nothing wrong with the gauge. The one I got was giving me wrong readings and I tried calibrating it and it just wasent working for me, I had to send it back and since for me it was between the PosiTector and the ETG I figuired I tried the ETG now time to try the PosiTector. So far so good with the PosiTector :thumb:

    Nice work... man for a new car that thing was hit!

    You know you are dealing with some tough clear when SIP doesn't even make a mark!!

    So you heated the menz up by the fire, is that correct?? Wicked trick if so....lol

    The panels seemed very contaminated for a new vehicle as well!

    Whats in the silver brief case (3rd picture down?)

    Do you tape the hanlde area beacause the paint id thiner there are therefore, more prone to burn?

    Thanks for sharing!

    Wow! Surprised that SIP didn't put a dent in that paint. Maybe I should get ready and buy some PowerGloss myself with a yellow pad just in case!

    Great work, very nice!
