Autopia: HD Polish Review by House of Wax

Autopia: HD Polish Review by House of Wax

    Product Review by: House of Wax on Autopia “Got a chance to finally mess with HD Polish… I’m trying it out on my 2007 Dodge Ram that is in the process of getting prepped for winter. I will be doing a full correction on the entire vehicle, but for the purposes of evaluating this product I tested it on one of my doors without any compounding so I could see how much defect it would remove on its own. The weather outside today isn’t being cooperative to get good defect shots, so I’m making due with my garage lighting.  Fortunately the paint is in pretty good shape but has a fair amount of light swirls and scratches that you can find if you’re looking for them. I had a hard time capturing the defects in pictures….they were much easier to see in person. I’d have to say overall it’s quite a nice product. It easily took care of all of the light defects with little effort and left the paint with a nice gloss and smooth as a baby’s butt. The only defects left were a couple of deeper ones that I would have no expectations of this product or any other in it’s class to take care of.  I’ll have more pictures in a full write up of the detail when I’m done and the weather is nicer. Pros: Bottle is just fine. Sharp packaging with a good spout (easy to open/close with one hand). No noticeable chemical smell. Easily took care of the defects that I would expect it to. No dusting. Very little effort in removal. Leaves a nice glossy finish. Cons: None that I can think of really. It worked as expected and I would have no trouble reaching for this in the future for light defect removal and/or cleaning up after compounding. “   The product is scientifically designed to produce a dust free, swirl free, deep, high gloss paint finish. It’s  the most effective way to remove light to moderate paint defects for the highest shine possible. Product works best when applied in a shaded area but is sun friendly when used correctly. This product is Body Shop Safe, containing no silicone or fillers. Safe for use on fresh paint and soft clears. Amazing hologram and marring free results on all paint colors including jet-black/dark colored paints. (Thanks, House of...

Detailing Made Simple: Saving Time in the Prep Bay

Many professional detailers and novices as well are plagued by the amount of time spent just to prep a vehicle before performing a full detailing. Many spend 2, 3 and even 4 hours just to prepare a car for the detailing process!! I can’t help but to scratch my head when I read how in-depth a person feels they need to go just to prep a car for a detailing operation. Even though properly prepping a car is unarguably the most important step in the detail process, some are under the false notion that the vehicle has to be surgically clean prior to polishing the paint and/or cleaning the interior. And as a result they spend unnecessary amounts of time performing the wash prep process. Things that include and are not limited to would be using multiple wash buckets to sterilize their wash media after wiping down each panel. Dousing the car down with a thick & expensive layer of car wash soap foam thinking it is deeply cleaning the car’s surface. Using a barrage of tiny little brushes on every crack & crevice of a vehicle so they can justify that every nook and cranny is extra clean. Using expensive, slow working chemicals to clean & decontaminate a vehicle’s surfaces. Little do they realize that pretty much most of these extra steps actually cost them valuable time & money unnecessarily.  So, as a result, I’ve decided to come up with a simplistic approach to prepping your car for the detail process. This car be used in all detailing environments. From mobile to fixed location. High end to mass production. 1st we need to understand that there are certain factors that may or may not need to be considered when doing a prep detail. This would 1st and foremost directly depend on the agreements you’ve made with your client and to what extent you feel comfortable going in your details normally. Variable processes that can directly affect your overall times are as follows: **Extent to which you clean your wheels. (faces vs. barrels vs. behind spokes) Hands down, the extent to which you decide to clean a wheel can play a huge factor in the amount of time spent on a detail. Depending on the wheel AND the client’s expectations, dialing in on what is required can dramatically affect your total touch time. Some wheels, based on their design, don’t show off/expose their inner wheel barrel. As a result, this area of the wheel might not require extra cleaning steps for the specific job. Having this discussion with your customer before the onset of the detail to determine their expectations is critical. If a client is only anticipating a clean wheel face, it might not be...
