You can break the entire paint correction process down to as many days or weeks as you want. Just refrain from creating NEW damage once you've fixed an area. After the correction is complete, get some wax on the paint ASAP. You can use any sealant or wax that you want but if you go with Gary Dean's, make sure that you ask him to explain to you EXACTLY how it should be applied and how often. Have him also explain to you how you can tell when more wax or sealant needs to be applied.

Also let him know that I sent you. He and I have talked extensively about detailing and his product line. Cool guy.

NO. The CCS pads do not cut as well as the Hex-Logic pads. Get the Hex-Logic pads from Chemical Guys in the 5.5" size.

Sal Zaino said that the Borderless Blond towels will be in December 16th.

You don't need a flexible back plate. Just get a 5" back plate to go with the 5.5" pads. Don't over think the purchase of the back plate. It is not as important when using my technique.

I haven't gotten to the sealant part of video. Just correction. Guess I should see what else before I start to order stuff. Also talked with dean about the detail spray. He had some comments against the two bucket method of washing. Also said be little over 300 for full paint correction with sealer. Um ok but I can but everything and always have it for less. My question junkman like you said 75% is technique so is it worth someone walking away from a diy if someone else with the skills and technique can fix it the first time. I am torn. To do it and have everything. Or pay to have it done with right and flawless technique. Also like you said since planning on only doing a paint correction once. Why would I need all that stuff listed if only gonna use it once. . Just questions. Before I make a move on it

First off, I don't use Gary Dean's sealant in that video, I use Hi Temp's Midnight Express. You can use any sealant that you want, it is just important that you protect your corrected paint with some kind of wax (be that a sealant, a carnuba paste, etc...). This will keep stuff like bird poop from etching into your clear coat.

As for the 2-bucket wash disagreement, did he give you a logical reason as to why he doesn't believe in it? In my videos, I explain exactly WHY I do it. You should have gotten his reason for not doing it and weighed the two opinions against each other. Then, make your own mind up. I bet that my reasoning would win.

Now for the purchasing of the products. IDEALLY, you want to fix your paint ONCE and never have to fix it again. REALISTICALLY, that is impossible unless the car is a garage queen that is trailered to car shows or never driven at all. YOUR CAR does not fit that description. Thus, if you drive that car, it is going to pick up damage every time it leaves your driveway. That damage (if you do everything that you are supposed to do), will be minor at most but if you have the products, YOU will be able to fix it at no more cost to you. That's why you want to buy the products. You will be able to stay on top of any reoccurring damage and not have to take it to anyone to have them fix it for you. Also, if something crazy happens that creates some very noticeable paint damage, you will be equipped to address that also. After you pay someone to fix your paint twice, you will quickly realize that you should have bought the equipment and done it yourself. Although you may not understand that fully right now, the second some damage shows back up in your paint after you have paid someone $300 smackers to fix it will quickly shed some light on your decision.

So for me, this is a no brainer because I realize how hard it is to keep damage out of a car that is driven frequently like my Vette. If your car is a daily driver, that thing is going to be constantly picking up damage. The products are going to cost you less than $300 and you'll have enough product to fix your paint hundreds of times.

I second Junkman's opinion . . . my black Camaro is my daily driver and picks up some damage no matter how hard I try to do everything PERFECTLY.

No, clear coat doesn't last forever but here's the deal. You are NOT going to be removing any significant amount of clear coat after the initial correction. Once your paint is fixed, the only polish that you are going to be using is M205, which is a very light polish. Couple that with the PC/white pad, and you can polish the paint with that combo for years with no worries. Again, this depends on your attention to detail when it comes to touching your paint. You won't have to fix a lot of damage as long as you are not constantly creating it. So you don't have to worry about wiping all the clear coat off the car as long as you follow what I teach in that video. The fact that you are worried about your clear coat tells me that you need to make another run through those videos.

Now if you were using a Flex, my opinion would change some.
