"A 20w array of LEDs gives you a lot of lumens. If you can wait until the weekend I can organise a picture of my 10w version outdoors on some silver paint for you? I'll even throw in the swirls for free."

Hey ttc6 that would be great if you could, much appreciated!

Hi guys

Did you get anywhere on this ? I'm also interested in an outdoors light source for checking swirl removal...

Thanks

The cree zoomable torches are good. I mainly use one and work out doors. Works best on an overcast day when there is less light interference. I guess a set of industrial lights is also a good option although a little more costly.

Another good alternative, although now less possible due to time of year, is using a very sunny day (providing you have good shade). You look like an idiot but drive into shade, correct a panel, pull it back into sunlight see how results are and repeat (ensuring all worked panels are cool to touch). I did this in June with good result.

Also - the absence of the ability to see swirls on a day to day basis is a GOOD thing if your not trying to correct paint because you won’t be constantly reminded of any defects, unlike us black car owners
