    Here we have a brand new Subaru BRZ that was a victim of a hit and run.

    I'll let the photo speak for itself.


    When the customer brought his car in I was extremely skeptical at the possibility of even cleaning it up, already providing him with my body shop's phone number to him. I ran my fingernail across the scratches and they were pretty deep and there were many.

    He was quite upset so I told him I would give it a shot without any promises.

    The tools and products used:

    Rupes BigFoot LHR 15ES
    Rupes BigFoot LHR 21ES
    Sufbuf Pad 6 inch
    Meguiar's Microfiber Cutting Disc 5.25 inch
    Menzerna Fast Gloss 400


    As you may or may not know I personally don't like to wetsand if I don't have to hence these were the tools and products I decided to use.

    After a few passes with the Rupes with the microfiber cutting pad and fg400 we were able to most of the paint transfer out of the paint but it didn't look good.

    Another angle

    From there I decided to go a bit more aggressive with the Surbuf pad and Menzerna FG400 then went back to the MF Cutting Pad with FG400 to finish it out.
    That combo was a success! We were able to get 95% of the damage out.

    Total time it took to get these results about 10 minutes, not too bad.

    that would be correct, but so much faster.

    FYI M101 will be in stock next week. :headbang:

MF pads have never worked so good: they correct faster, operate smoother, and the Rupes shows more balance than a Ferrari. Rupes BigFoot will leave you with a huge smile on your face. GUARANTEED!

    Awesome work Phil, just goes to show that the Rupes Bigfoots are probably the best and most safest machine on the planet! I havent used anything else now for over 6 months, and the Bigfoot corrects everything, inc 2000-3000 sanding marks.

    Roll on more Bigfoot air tools I say!!!

    Kind Regards
