Ask a Professional Detailer...

As a new panoramic-3d.ru member and sponsor, I would like to introduce myself. My name is Greg Pautler, owner of . We specialize in high end automotive detailing. Our goal is to help other members raise their standards in automotive car care, while maximizing their detailing objectives.

We started a thread, "Ask a Professional Detailer" on some other forums with great success and wanted to start a thread on panoramic-3d.ru to ask me any questions you might have on auto detailing. On e46fanatics, is still one of the top threads in their detailing section since July '05, with over 1400 posts and 60k thread views. We'd like to build up a great reference tool here on panoramic-3d.ru, specifically for Infiniti G35's.

I know this is a great forum already, I see a lot of familiar faces on here, and a wealth of information from Picus and other members. I hope to help contribute to the forum and answer as many questions as I can in a detailed and timely manner. I would also like to extend a 10% discount to panoramic-3d.ru members on any purchase from . To do so, just enter in 10offG35 during checkout to receive your discount.

I look forward to taking part in some great conversation.

Greg

Thanks for the warm welcome thus far, I'm excited to be a part of panoramic-3d.ru.

Spring is knocking on our doors here in upstate New York, I'm excited to see the snow almost completely melted from my yard.

I've had great luck with both products over FMJ, ideally after you've let the FMJ cure for a day or so. On lighter colored vehicles I use and on darker colored vehicles I use . Another wax that looks great on darker colored vehicles, if you don't want to spring for Pinnacle is . Pinnacle does look the deepest and wettest in my eyes, but lacks in the durability department. All 3 waxes mentioned are very easy to use and very easy to work with and will work great on any colored vehicle, but those are my preferences on which ones I use on what colored vehicles.

What color vehicle would this be going on?

Sometimes the words in detailing get thrown around a lot so they might have different meanings to different people. I'll briefly explain the differences between some of the terms. Pure polishes can use micro cutting particles to actually remove a micro thin layer of clear coat (buffs out swirls, oxidation, etc) or cleaning chemicals to clean the paint, but don't add protection. This step adds a lot of shine and is known as the prep work. Pure sealants are really meant to protect the paint for months and add a reflective shine. Waxes (carnauba waxes) offer less protection than a sealant (generally speaking) but offer more depth and gloss in the shine. The ideal combination is to layer a carnauba wax on top of a sealant so you get the underlying strong protection of a sealant and the deep gloss of a carnauba wax on top. Polishes generally would not go on top of a wax or sealant. The correct order for using products is usually - - - - - .

If you only want to do just one step I'd recommend the sealant because they have such strong protection and a great shine. The mentioned above is probably one of the easiest products to apply and remove. I'd follow the previous recommendations I outlined for selecting a carnauba wax if you prefer their deeper shine. All three are pretty easy to apply with the Natty's Blue being slightly harder to work with. The Pinnacle Souveran Paste Wax and the P21S Carnauba Wax are extremely easy to work with and both come with applicator pads (Pinnacle also comes with a microfiber towel).

In summary if you want protection and shine go with a sealant like the FMJ. If you want the deeper gloss and a little less protection get a carnauba wax. If you want even better results use both or add more steps to the detail. Let me know if I can provide any more information or a more clear recommendation for you. Good luck with the detail and let us know how you make out!

Okay, I'll bite on this one! I have a 2004 Obsidian Black coupe that could use some TLC. She has the infamous "swirl" marks that I just can't seem to get out myself. I don't mind laying out some dough for a quality product, because she is worth it! So, with that, what are the steps that you recommend to start getting my baby back on the right track!? Also, what type of buffer do you recommend?
