That was a great trip AJ, topped off by an even greater dinner and company. Kids still talk about it and are pulling for Louisville in the championship game.

The feeling is mutual. It gets no better than good company and good food.

Good tips AJ. I'll use some of these for polishing my C5. The work never ends with this thing!

Adam's American on the Yellow 2010 and Adam's Buttery Wax on the 68. 68 is a garage beauty so she doesn't get out much.

Junkman! 4 dumb questions... 1) I know this can't be done in one day, so every time that I'm going to continue fixing the paint do I need to clay before? 2) even my car is new I have to do everything? Use both compound? I was reading your other thread you did and you point to one person that because he's paint was new he didn't need to do all the steps... 3) best wax to maintain the Polish gain? Other product beside Adams... And 4) what detail spray do? How often I can use it? I know you don't like people asking stupid question so apologize ahead...

Your questions are not stupid. No questions are. But here's the deal. The questions that you are asking show that you haven't watch the videos in this thread in their entirety. It almost sounds like you either skipped through them or watched them on your phone, where the very important annotations do not show. So which is it, have you watched the videos in this thread in their entirety?

today on the freeway some smart guy decided to break some part of his car and pieces scattered everywhere.. one of them some type of plastic about 8'' long right into the front-left bumper.. i checked it out and yeah its a nice little scrape mostly dirt but after clearing up the dirt still litlle scuffs left behind.. whats the best approach to this.. doesnt seem like a whole restoration project is needed but does that ''Duplicolor/Paint Scratch & Fix Tube'' actually work good for something like this..?

Make sure you take a lot of notes and don't skip through anything. Like I say in the videos, if you ask a question about something that I already covered in the videos, I'm just going to tell you to watch the videos again. So make your 2-hour ordeal worth the experience.

You need to just pull up to a body or detail shop and let them fix it for you. It takes about 5 minutes to fix and you won't have to worry about buying worthless OTC products. If you want to fix it yourself, watch the videos but it would be cheaper for you just to stand and watch a guy remove that damage rather instantly. It's that simple to fix.
