How To Polish Scratches and Swirls From Black Paint! – Boss 302 Mustang | Laguna Seca


Hey guys, we’ve still got this Boss 302 Mustang
in the shop. If you’ve been following us, we’ve washed
it, clayed it and now we’re moving on to the polishing steps. This is a beautiful black paint job with a
nice vinyl graphic that breaks it up. If you get close you can see the scratches
and swirls because black shows any kind of imperfection. Especially up here where people grab the door
handle there are scratches and swirls from improper drying techniques. So, I’m going to show you how quick and easy
it is to remove that using the TORQ R Rotary Polisher. Rotary is a lot faster than a dual action
because it is more precise but it is also more dangerous so you have to be certain of
what you’re doing so that you don’t harm the paint. Now, whenever using a rotary you can’t go
over body lines, so I’ve taped off this edge here where the paint is thinner. If you go over that edge with a rotary there
is a chance that it will burn or mar so we have taken the precautions to make sure we
don’t damage the paint finish. I’m going to use VSS Scratch & Swirl Remover
to break down those fine scratches and swirls to bring back the black paint. We’ll start by shaking up the bottle. Since we are working in a small section I’m
only going to apply three dime size drops to the pad. I’ll also spray the pad with Pad Conditioner
to reduce some of that friction. This is also lubricating the pad to insure
a nice polish affect. I’ll blotch it out just like we do with all
of our polish jobs over the area we are working on. On the lowest speed setting we are going to
spread it out over the section then we’re going to go to speed setting four to work
this into the surface until it has gone clear and that is when we know we have refined the
paint job. Well there you have it, you can see that the
TORQ R did an amazing job of taking care of the scratches and swirls. It did it faster and more precise than any
dual action could have. Now there is a nice reflective surface, the
black is really deep and glossy. Using VSS broke down the fine scratches that
were in the clear coat to reveal fresh paint and after further refinement it added a high
gloss shine. The TORQ R Rotary Polisher is a great machine
for taking out deep scratches and swirls or just reviving paint faster than you could
have done with a dual action polisher. You have to know what you’re doing because
these machines won’t stop. They can take out scratches and swirls but
they can still burn or mar paint or ruin edges. So you need to be super careful of what you’re
doing and keep the pad completely flat at all times to prevent a hot spot which causes
holograms. Also, you may have noticed that this machine
broke down the polish faster than a dual action. It went clear very quickly and that is because
it spins much faster which is how it corrects paint so quickly. I’m going to finish off this vehicle, I’m
just giving you guys a small before and after. You may have noticed that using a halogen
light gives a warmer glow to show the imperfections but you can still use LED or natural light
to get the best results. If you want to learn more about these products
