i did my an initial paint job and also it came out pretty an excellent (IMO). Then ns did a light wet sanding with 1200 grit and also 2000 grit. I probably should have left the alone, yet I went and also did a compounding following using Meguires 105. Climate I offered Meguires 205 maker polish.After polishing and wiping through a microfiber towel, the complete looks really good.But then after a small while a white fog appears. It"s not spanning all the panel however it reflects on about 25% that the surface.Where is this fog coming from? just how do I get rid of it. If it was left over polish or compound - wouldn"t that show immediately after wiping with the towel?
The haze have the right to be indigenous a couple of different things. One not letting the clean flash long enough between coats and also some that the vapors were trapped and also trying to escape.The other and also much much more common is the there space still fine scratches in the clear. 1200 to 2000 is a pretty large jump in grit. Room you making use of DA or hand sanding?Also i don"t usage M-105 anymore because it has actually fillers in it. The surface looks great until you clean it and then the clarity is gone. Try using M-100 together it is a much far better product and has no fillers.
many thanks again for giving advice. Paint is a lot harder than it looks. Ns hand sanded. Then saw the electric Polisher.I can get some Meguires M100. Need to I acquire a wool buffing pad or usage a foam cutting pad?I"m using a Porter Cable 7424XP "dual action orbit" polisher through a 5" pad at speed setting "3" (the selection is speed 1= 2500 to rate 6= 6800 opm). I think Orbits every Minute and RPM is the exact same thing therefore I"m running it roughly 4000rpm. The specs don"t offer an RPM.
I extremely recommend a rotating buffer over an orbit polisher. The in itself will assist greatly also with the M-105.Twisted wool pad on the first go about to remove any type of remaining scratches. Then you have the right to go to a foam polishing pad and the M-205.The rotary must be run at short RPMs (under a 1000) simply to store the link from flying everywhere until it is spread out. Climate crank it as much as 2000 rpms and work the surface. A slow and also steady rate of take trip is better than moving approximately quickly. Make certain the buff is rotating "off" edges and body lines and not "into" them.On page 11 of this thread, I present the cut and also buff procedure using M-105 and also M-205.viewtopic.php?f=12&t=22145&start=100
ns agree v the above.A polisher will work you to fatality trying come buff v it.Polishers are not aggressive sufficient for early buffing.They polish, which is what you perform after buffing, because that light stuff prefer swirl remover.And through a an excellent buffer and right pads friend don"t need a polisher.Your haze is scratches.
One size does no fit all! I supplied rotary buffers for over 25 years. I had an especially hard time buffing out a automobile that I had actually cleared with Tamco clear and also the rotary just wasn"t gaining the project done no issue what mix I used. ~ going thru the forum end at Autogeek , https://www.autogeek.net/flex-car-polishers.html, ns took a chance and also bought a brand-new Flex 3401 forced rotation polisher. After trying out with it making use of a few different combinations, the clear turned out to be one of the best if no the ideal I have ever before buffed and also polished out. The was several years ago. I have not picked the rotating up since. cloud link to picturehttps://1drv.ms/u/s!AlqXTowCsi4Ur3l5chfiain3_stl
that "Flex" polisher is a an excellent tool and an exception to various other RO units,it has greater RPM"s and also a huge stroke.It is one exception, and also for the price it must be.The an essential word there is "rotary polisher" not random orbital onlywhich is way less aggressive which is what i was trying to convey.If anyone goes out and also buys a consistent RO polisher like the human didin this subject they room going to be really disappointed for buffing.
Flex is not your plain buffer/polisher. Most men that are buying orbitals space doing so to avoid spending the money on a rotating buffer.While i agree some rotary buffers, particularly the older, cheaper ones, are much less than ideal, they still whip a orbital as soon as it involves removing scratches.A Flex polisher has actually been on mine Christmas perform for a couple of years now yet man they are pricey!
I controlled a detail business for 14 years and also have been detailing vehicles for virtually 40 years myself. Needless come say, I"ve buffed numerous thousands the vehicles throughout that time. The DA"s and also Orbital polishers are fine because that minor correction/polishing and/or less experienced folks. Neither yet can to win a rotating buffer for heavy correction. Different tools for different jobs. I have Meguairs MT300 because that minor detailing and use many of their products. The Flex is a fine maker but it can not touch my Milwaukee variable rotating buffer for paint correction or even jeweling.The only benefit of a DA polisher is castle are more secure to run for much less experienced detailers and also less likely to cause issues such as holograms. A DA can however cause young hazing as many professionals attest to and also that is why they stick v their rotating polishers also with final step. So this is other the OP may consider.It"s hard to know what the OP"s worry is without inspecting or see it though. If that painted the car correctly and also then lightly wet sanded that afterward, a great buffing and also polishing should have actually revealed a quite finish. My hunch is the didn"t remove every one of the polish/wax. The OP could shot washing the vehicle again to view if that gets rid of the haze. If the doesn"t occupational he could try re-waxing that being certain to use several clean microfiber towels because that removal. It that doesn"t work-related he could try wiping the surface ar down with some water and also isopropyl alcohol and also then re-polishing and re-waxing.Worst instance scenario the OP didn"t use enough clear coat and ended up cutting through it when he wet sanded the surface. The base coat would absorb the polish/wax and also cause hazing. Great luck,Ralph
