    I want to do a full detail using recommended products from this site and i just want to see if i need anything else...

    • car wash
    • Clay magic
    • absorber (which i have)
    • 6" Porter Cable
    • backing plate
    • 2 yellow pads
    • 2 white pads
    • 2 gray pads
    • a couple microfiber towels
    • Klasse AIO
    • Meguiar's #80
    • Meguiar's #16
    The car's paint is a little scuff and has slight swirling. would the AIO cover it or should i use DACP instead?

    does anyone know where to get speed glaze from? i'm buying most of these products from autogeek.net and i cannot find it on that sight

    any recommendations are welcome.:wavey:

    AIO is a chemical cleaner. There's no need for AIO if you're using #80 and #16. AIO also won't remove imperfections (swirls, etc) but it will remove oxidation. #80 will remove the light swirling, and I'm not sure what will remove a scuff....try clay if it's just paint transfer. Not sure where to get speed glaze....I'd like to get some myself, so I'll be anxious to hear a reply.....I believe Scott gets his locally.

    It should turn out great! I worked with him throughout the summer in Texas, and he taught me a few things. He sends me #16, Vanilla Moose, and Q & E wash stuff. I think he also sent me some EXP. Anyway, with all that your doing to your Integra, it should glow. What color is it?

    Yeah, Scott gets his locally. He has a distributor that gets him his stuff. #80 works like a charm, and it's easy to use. :bowdown: #80

    You can use AIO after #80. I only use the AIO/#16 combo on paint already in very good condition. You can do #80/AIO/#16 if you have the time, or just #80/#16. You will get a slight improvement with a 3 step process but it is debatable if the improvement is enough to warrant the extra time. You could do the 3 step this time and maintain with AIO/#16 after that.

    Pics and product impressions are mandatory. ;)

    so #80->AIO->#16? I thought that AIO would remove the effects of the #80

    This combo will definately do it. I definately reccomend the AIO before #16 as it will both improve the look and also make #16 a LOT easier to work with.

    Nice teg, kinda like mine :)

    i LOVE LOVE LOVE the way your teg came out. i saw it in the clusterfuck of pics in the top sticky. what'd you use for the first pic? do you have a before and after?

    do i use the AIO before or after #80?

    No. #80 is a much stronger polish. All AIO will do is clean the paint up a bit more and #16 glides on over it.

    so would you recommend, instead, doing

    DACP then #80 then #16?

    i'm really trying to dig up the first coat that's full of swirls, light blemishes, etc.

    just to get it right...

    it's DACP applied with yellow pad, removed with microfiber
    #80 applied with white pad, removed iwth microfiber
    #16 applied with grey pad, buffed to perfection with terry cloth bonnet?

    83 and 80 with polishing pads, 83 with a cutting pad if necessary though. 80 and a polishing pad will clean up any minor hazing you might get. I apply 16 with a foam hand pad and remove with a mf towel.

    I hope Scott forgives me but I would do P21S paste wax instead of #16. I think it is a much better wax in terms of looks and has about the same durability and goes on much easier.

    I use #16 in the winter on my wife's car, but I think P21S or Pinnacle Souveran are much better technology that leads to easier application and wetter reflective shines.

    I've tried S100/P21S side by side with #16 and I can't see a difference visually and ease of use is very close, provided you apply and remove #16 the same way as S100. :dunno:

    Let #16 dry completely and you may need a belt sander to remove it, which probably accounts for the good durability.

    BTW, if money is no object, on red I'd go with Pinnacle Souveran over #16 or S100!

    money is not a deciding factor, what's best for my paint is. is #80 also good for red?

    #80 is good on anything. It is a very good light to moderate swirl/scratch remover.
