Testing Rupes Bigfoot LHR 21ES With M205

Hey guys, I've been meaning to make this video for a little while. It's showing how effective the Rupes is at using non Rupes polishes such as M205.

Video in link: Testing Rupes Bigfoot LHR 21ES With M205 Non Rupes Polish - YouTube

I explain my thoughts on the Rupes polishes in the end of the video, but the major point to take away from that is to try it yourself and come to your own conclusions

Anyways, hope you enjoy some pretty incredible correction (IMO) considering it came from the Rupes Yellow Pad and M205 (a finishing pad and a finishing polish)

P.S. The buffing is sped up 4x so don't think I go crazy with the buffer lol!

P.P.S. View in HD and Full Screen to see the defects the best!

Thanks for watching buddy! The throw is insane and I'm constantly impressed that I mostly only have to use mild to intermediate polishes to get awesome correction... it's a great feeling!

First - I actually really like that sweater. Looks good.

Second - black has to be one of the worst colors for someone who doesn't care about keeping their paint in shape. At first I thought there was no way you could get 80% that quick. Good job.

Third - Been using M105 on the Camaro with my PC. Was taking my time and I think I've gotten a good 90+% correction to date. This is excellent IMO because the car was a rental when it was born and had severe paint issues from multiple automatic car washes (and the reason I got it very cheap). Overall very happy. Used 205 a couple times, but this last time I used CG's Black Light, then Jet 109 Sealant and very happy with the results.

Good video.

1) Thanks man, I'm actually quite fond of that sweater lol, but still don't know what that has to do with detailing

2) Yeah, but girls like black cars. I cringe almost all the time when I look at the paint. I really want to correct it and then opticoat it, but she doesn't see swirls in her paint. Maybe it's a good thing... her paint has sanding marks, holograms, swirls, beginning signs of clear coat failure all over. It's a horror story waiting to happen.

3) I'm glad you've been getting great results man! Nothing better than a clean, swirl free, shiny Camaro
