Paint Correction on 1958 Porsche Speedster

Paint correction is one of the most difficult—and most satisfying—detailing skills to master. In this episode, we show how to restore paint that's been damaged as a result of poor washing habits. The techniques we review can be performed by anyone with a dual-action polisher and microfiber-cutting pad (as microfiber pads are extremely safe, even for novice detailers). We also review scratches on the microscopic level and illustrate how abrasives work to remove or diminish paint scratches and imperfections.
