    Since speed glaze is teh new hawtness... Now w/ pics!!

    Should I change my paint restoration plans?

    I've got a 98 Camaro, and the *BLACK* paint is pretty much fucked. The previous owner didn't take care of it, and I admit I've been slacking too. It hasn't been hand washed in over a year, hasn't seen wax in that long either. (Lots of shit going on in my life) It has been sitting in the garage and only been on the road for 1500 miles during that time period. The whole thing is swirled to hell, a few deep scratches, some stains and discoloration too... Basically it needs a repaint but I'm going to get as good looking as possible until then...

    The plan was:

    Wash
    Clay Magic
    Meguiars DAC/P
    Meguiars Swirl Free Polish
    S100 SEPC
    S100 Wax

    I've read the stickies and alot fo the threads in here but should I change this in any way? Maybe replace the SFP w/ Speed Glaze? or add speed glaze? Or replace it w/ #9? Or is there a step I've missed? Do I need to wash in between DAC/P and SFP?

    Thanks!

    Replace the SFP with Speed Glaze. No need to wash in between.

    With #80, you can skip the glaze (in your case, S100 SEC) if you wish, It polishes out very nicely and the paint is ready for wax. Extra polishing won't hurt but if you want to save some time youcan go from #80 to wax.

    I would say if you are using DACP Id go with SFP to remove any possible hazing. Speed Glaze is a GREAT 1 step prep, combines the best of both DACP and SFP, but one product cannot replace 2 good products. Personally with that paint, id try a small section with Speed Glaze alone and see how it does, if it doesnt get the desired result take a step up to DACP.

    You can if you want, but it's not necessary. I use a quick detailer as my clay lube and just give a quick wipe of the area I just clayed as I go.

    Depends on what you want done. 2 step on the paint, plus wash/vac/windows/tires will run $65-75 for cars, full details $115-140 for cars.

    it doesn't take all day when you get used to it. It takes me like 3-4 hours on my element what scott would do above.

    3-5 hours on cars and 4-7 on SUVs and minivans, depending on what needs to be done. Trashed SUVs and minivans can really take a long time if the interior is really nasty.

    I have some customers I only hear from when their current vehicle's lease is up and others whose cars I wash weekly and wax/detail regularly.
