I believe you in the fact of saying that it's not as scary as you say but I would say that is working along side someone very knowledgeable. I would imagine that with the slightest distraction or taking your eye off the ball it could head south very quickly!

I love reading such in depth great write ups like these, but reading is as far as I would go. I know my limitations and this is well outside it.

Thanks for taken the time to share
Thank you!

Kelly's rotary handling is very difficult to describe in words, I'll try and get a video done. His has total control of the machine, polish and pad. I guess 19 years of experience, and not learning from the same methods a lot of us on here have, gives you this. He just understands exactly where and when a polish and pad are working, and how. His edging skills are incredible too - doing bits I'd be scared to with a 4" pad, with a 7" pad!!!! It's incredible.

All I'd say to anyone having a go on their own, is that cleanliness really is the single most important thing. The second you hear a bit of dirt under the paper, flood the panel and start over.

Thanks all!

Russ.

I really would recommend having it done without hesitation. For how little you lose, you have a stunning looking car for the duration you have it. What's your S4 like for peel?

Indeed, I'll be honest, I was a bit nervous, but I knew I could do it and with the guidance I had, I had the confidence to get through it. I did put in a couple of scorelines, but they were removed at the polishing stage. He said I picked it up very well, which is a great confidence builder!

brilliant write-up, and as ive already said, fantastic finish. I think 2012 holds great things for you and the new venture. do you have your eye on some new toys after using what kelly has?

I think the PosiTector 6000 is a must. I really like the Flex Rotary too, perhaps more than the Festool, so we shall see.

I doubt I'll invest in a Mirka sander, but there will be a fair bit of 1500-4000 being ordered in for my next couple of cars.

Thank you - I hope it goes well. I'm "only part time" but I still want to be the very best I can be and its good to be able to sort the odd panel here and there for my customers. I'm glad I invested in the Unit now too, to allow me to do work such as this. There's no way you could do this outdoors, or in a dirty environment.

Russ.

OH MY GOD! simply amazing. Huge thanks for taking the time to do this write up. was your arm aching from doing it by hand or did you use the air sander for most of it?
