Right well you guys may have seen some pics of my car in the detailing section of my very badly chipped pro-drive bumper.
so here is the left hand side from start to finish. Now i would not reccomend you to go out and do this to your own car. Unless you have exprience with a rotary / DA polisher. I was very worried at one point weather i was going to have to pay for a respray.
Washed the car and tried to remove all ground in polish out of the chips.
I was left with this
I then clayed it to try and make the surface as clean as possible and then i opened up the new chip stick pen. Tried to fill the chips in with a cocktail stick but it was taking for ever and i could not get the hang of it so i trimmed the brush pen and used that.
after 1 1/2 hours i had done an area of about 10cm by 10cm.
Right well i have left the paint to cure for a few days and decided to takle the wet sanding.
Pre-soaked the 2500 w&D for 1hr washed the front of the car and tackled it
making sure the w&D never dried i did the bottom half first and was left with this
Scary stuff! ( i was actually very scared that this may have gone really wrong)
I then brought out the PC and tackled it with 4" orange Lake country pad used SSR2.5 buffed off after product truly broke down, then attacked with 4" lake country white pad and megs #80.
This is the out come
OK so it's not amazing and no where near as good as having a respray but i am very happy with it, just need to do the other side now, and a couple more on the above side. and put it this way it only cost around £8 to do that side + 6.5hrs.
What do you guys think?
