Appalling respray job versus Carpro denim pads

Hi all,

I had 2 hours to spare so I attacked the worst respray job on a panel I've seen and I've seen a lot!

The car in question was a 2012 Vauxhall Astra GTC. I spent 2 hours on the panel alone and I think I got around 90% improvement. If I had more time I think I could have achieved even more but I was very impressed with the job that the Carpro Denim pads did on my Flex rotary. Yes it was fairly slow going but not as slow as wet sanding.

Some before and after pics...Still can't believe how bad the respray was.

BEFORE


AFTER


Entire car machine polished - Really happy with the outcome of the affected panel above rear wheel.

Cheers Chongo

I used Scholl S3 XXL Gold on the denim pad but then S20 to refine and also used S20 on the rest of the car.

You should have tried correcting it by holding the rotary 3 foot from the panel - about the same distance the sprayer was holding the spray gun

You might have got an equally crap result

That was far from apalling, just a smidgen of drop back during the curing process, at least the colour was the correct shade

If this respray was done at a bodyshop, I just don't understand how they could leave it like it was? There was so much crap in the paint too, dust and all types of contaminants.

I do love these pads for the over all improvement they give.

Try them with m101, way better than scholl, at least for me. Give it a try

It did pop into my mind that Scholl's compounds being DAT, that it would require more time and effort than something like you mentioned...

I'll take you up on that advice as I will be doing more orange peel levelling in future. I've read a few people mention FG400, but you prefer m101 over this?

I do. Ive played with them quite extensively in all honesty, in various styles, and I have to say m101 has consistently performed best. 900 to 100rpm, slow arm movements, small work areas (about shoulder width and only one or two overlaps)
