    Great Videos as always! The real question is, when are you going to start carrying Ammo?

    What do you guys think abut Claying (or Nanoscrubbing) the paint durring the decon wash? I guess if you plan on polishing it anyway whats a liitle more marring? Or is there risk of inflicting major damage that would be unsafe to fix.

    Nice video. I've clayed while washing when I'm trying to save time or I'd I'm in a tight deadline. I always wash the panel rinse and wash again while claying.

    I watched the video. It was some good information, pretty much what everyone already knows. My biggest bone to pick is how almost never does anyone who makes these kind of videos do they really show the area they corrected, it's always a light shown on the uncorrected part, and you can see the part they polished, sure, is darker, but how do we know they corrected the defects?

    Plus....there's literally no way to get that car done properly in 8 hours, is he insane? It takes me 3 hours just to wash and clay properly, then several days to get every inch of the paint flawless. How did he correct all the areas down behind the front and rear bumpers? Or underneath the hood trim piece? Did he remove and replace them or just skip over those areas??

    Just doesn't seem realistic, I've done a lot of corrections, and there's a difference between "going through the motions" and truly correcting a car properly. No doubt he has the knowledge, and I understand for the sake of the video, but I think his work was a little misrepresented.
