  • What's up, guys?

  • Just two cents here and we'll do some car content, but not high horsepower.

  • Not mode's not racing.

  • We're talking about keeping your ride looking good.

  • We're gonna do that today.

  • A detail to you.

  • Tired of all the extra cables in your system?

  • Well, fractal has you covered with their new eye on family power supplies, available in a variety of sizes and wattage is including SFX ion.

  • Family of power supplies from fractal has what you need for clutter free reliability.

  • To learn more, click the link in the description below.

  • So my Camaro 011 early is a 2018.

  • It's got 18,200 loved miles on it.

  • We're talking track.

  • We're talking desert.

  • Just I've not been kind to the car, and I wanted to protect it, but it's time to kind of take off the expel that's on there.

  • We're gonna put Loom are on there.

  • We'll talk about why we went with a different brand as we kind of move forward with the video.

  • But I'm a go ahead.

  • Let Chris is guys who the professionals do this because I'm not a professional.

  • I would totally screw this up, So it's going to go out to the shop and show you guys what we're gonna do.

  • So this job's gonna be a little bit different than if he brought them a fresh car either off the lot or a car that doesn't have any PPF for anything on there yet.

  • You're gonna hear me say PPF a lot that stands for paint protection film.

  • But this is my 2018 01 right here.

  • We're not gonna talk about performance respects.

  • That's a whole different video because of the amount of work gets done in this car.

  • However, if you come and look closely, though, it does have and expel on here.

  • Expel is a type of pain protection film.

  • There's a lot of different brands out there.

  • I gotta put on pretty quickly and hastily.

  • When I first bought the car because I broke this thing in on track, so I wanted to protect the paint as quickly as I could.

  • You can kind of see here we've got some really ugly Seems that Dirt has sort of made its way in One of the things that Chris says he likes to do with his particular paint protection film is sort of alter the template a little bit.

  • So he moves.

  • He seems to have placed that kind of naturally follows a body line rather than having this ugly one here.

  • But we've got some holes where track debris, rocks, tires, even pieces of steel belt because some people like to run their tyres down to the belt on track have actually punctured do this rap.

  • So one of the things I'm kind of curious as to how this is gonna look underneath because if we look down low here, you're not the guy out front.

  • Anyways, you're going to get some holes blown in your ship.

  • So, as you can see right here, this is probably the worst piece of damage I have.

  • It's gone always through the expel all the way through the paint, down to the primer, which is a black primer under this summit light kind of interesting, right?

  • Black primary, white car, but whatever.

  • So we're gonna find some of those throughout the car, so I'm not It's not gonna look 100% perfect because the car is 100% perfect.

  • Underneath the wrap, we've got Matt Black parts on this car.

  • We've got obviously gloss summit white parts.

  • But the black crap that comes on the one only is just a cheap vinyl wrapped they put on at the factory Mind starting to even come unraveled at the back of the hood.

  • But as you can see, I've got holes just all peppered all over this.

  • We've got some scratches from rubber heating it and kind of sliding along the car.

  • Here's a good one right here.

  • So if you've never been on track, there's a lot of what's called marbles that air picked up on the track.

  • They're just pieces of rubber that roll off the tires, get stuck to the ground and cars in front of you, pick him up and send them flying rocks, rubber hot rubber gets stuck to stuff.

  • It's kind of ugly.

  • So in order to redo this rap, we gotta take off this hood, insert the bottom piece, the top.

  • He's kind of a clam shell, and then we'll be re wrapping this.

  • In a black pay protection film, you can see the side skirts or matte black that's a factory matte paint.

  • So what it is, it's actually black paint with a mat clear on top of it.

  • But this does have a rap on it too.

  • So expel also had a mat clear that we put on all the black parts.

  • But we're gonna be changing that today and put an actual Matt wrap over the mat parts.

  • But we're gonna be bringing the black PPF across the top of the car as well.

  • We're gonna have black on the roof.

  • We're also gonna have black on the shark fin.

  • This will be an actual vinyl, though not a P p s because of the contours and then the trunk as well.

  • Now, that's not just because I like that whole black top of the car Look, That's also because I've got marks on top of the car and on the chunk, even at the end of a track day from rubber hitting the entire top of the car.

  • So that's what we're gonna do today.

  • Okay, so we got a lot done on the first day and I'm standing here with Chris, who's the owner to detail to you in Rancho Cucamonga.

  • So let's talk about the rap that we put on here.

  • The I keep calling a wrap It's a paint protection Fillmore PPF.

  • It's very different from a vinyl wrap.

  • Don't you start with what the difference is?

  • As we all know, you track this vehicle pretty actively, So the original car came with a matte black vinyl, which does, of course, not stop rock chips.

  • We learned about a film that is actually a matte black film, but it's a paint protection film, meaning it will actually stop rock chips.

  • And so we decided, instead of just replacing the vinyl to replace us with matte black pink protection film.

  • And so now, even though it looks like factory, it's actually thick enough to stop the Roger Hey looks better than factory because the vinyl, even from day one, always had a texture to it, like a grain.

  • If that makes sense, this is such a perfect uniform sheen to it.

  • It does look very healthy, so the matte black hood also never matched the matte black painted parts of the car.

  • It was always a totally different Dol look, but this before we did all the black pieces and we pulled all the existing stuff off, you couldn't tell what was the paint and what was the rap or the P P f.

  • I kept going around thinking like, Oh, he sells to do that panel In a way, it's done, but it's it looks great.

  • So know what the clear part.

  • So how do we kind of handle that?

  • Because what's amazing here is the difference.

  • In terms of the seems there's, there's very few seems there's no edges visible.

  • Obviously, you guys did amazing job hiding those seams, which wasn't really the case before, So before it was very much so, like a pre cut pattern.

  • And this is what you call bulk roll installed.

  • So this was entirely cut out by hand, and this piece here was just trimmed by hand and then custom cut around the corners versus cutting in on a plotter, which then you're trying to adjust the pattern and get it to fit on the fender and then stretch it to the right areas and meet all your marks, which we call those absolutes.

  • But that doesn't necessarily do the cleanest install.

  • And so this was this was vocal installed.

  • The only thing that was done with a plotter is just the front bumper.

  • But even then it was it was stretched and then rolled all the way to the edges.

  • So even where the seams are here, you really have to look for them versus before.

  • Because they go much farther to the edge than before.

  • Yeah, we just try to do is clean of his insults possible.

  • And that way the car has 100% protection.

  • And really, you want to try and, you know, cover areas that are small that may still be susceptible to a rock chip.

  • You don't want to leave that area exposed?

  • No, that looks really, really good.

  • And at the at the risk of inflating your head, how good this installed turned out.

  • So I've always been a fan of the black roof and the black trunk and all that sort of stuff.

  • And it's one of those things where I wanted to do that and I was gonna do like, a vinyl wrap or something.

  • But when you told me about the black PPF, I thought that was perfect.

  • As the problem is with track, if you've never if you never been on track and experiences, you will find rubber has hit your car in areas you would never expect the top of the car and even my trunk are typically just.

  • They have streaks of rubber all over it because the car is in front of you.

  • Kick it up in the air, it gets caught in the air, and then it will tumble over the top of the cars behind.

  • You know, you and person that's in front of you and all that.

  • So now the top of the car is protected from those scratches in those things.

  • Because I do have a few scratches on here from like I said, pieces of metal, steel belts and stuff still stuck in tires.

  • But it also added a really pleasing esthetic.

  • Look to it, too.

  • So don't you go ahead and kind of walk us through what you're going to do with the exposed paint parts of the car.

  • So basically, we're going to start off with a basic prep, which we're gonna clean the vehicle, clay the vehicle, and after we've done that, we need thio tape.

  • All the rubber seems off tape off the window trim tape off the P P F that we just previously installed because we the last thing we want to do is actually pull up that PPF.

  • It's still so fresh.

  • So all of these edges in the mirror and around the fenders, everything is gonna get taped off in preparation for the paint correction.

  • So I feel like over the last couple of years you've heard a lot of people talk about ceramic coating, and it's hydrophobic and hydro Felix properties and people always go.

  • That makes it easier to dry off and clean.

  • But there's other reasons why you want to do it.

  • You kind of go over quickly into what other benefits it adds.

  • Besides the cleaning aspect, there's a lot of rumors or a lot of false advertising that coatings last forever or coatings were completely scratch proof.

  • Or they're all these different things.

  • Coatings are slightly scratch resistant.

  • They are harder than the original clear coat.

  • But they're not scratch proof, and they're not life proof.

  • They're definitely not something that you could just walk away from, and so I don't need to maintain my car anymore.

  • I don't need to wash my car anymore.

  • They're definitely things that help assist you and maintaining the vehicle, and it's the best protection available.

  • It's got the highest heat resistance available.

  • You don't have to polish wax the vehicle all the time.

  • Does it assist in the shiny nous?

  • It does increase the gloss by quite a bit, especially the coding we use.

  • We use a coating called Modesto from Japan, and it is really, probably even gonna be able to notice it on camera.

  • You're drastically going to see an increase in gloss.

  • So that is one of the benefits talking about hydrophobic and had to feel like a lot of people get confused.

  • Sometimes it can harm the vehicle.

  • If something is so hydrophobic that if a harsh chemical or harsh liquid hits the vehicle and it just beads tightly, it doesn't sheet off the vehicle.

  • Now you have a harmful chemical beating, so there's there's minerals and stuff in there, and then you've got the sun acting.

  • That's like a lens for the sun to just focus on TV, right?

  • You want to get a nice coating that actually has a little bit of both.

  • So hydrophobic is gonna be the water tightly and hydra.

  • Philip is gonna sheep the water off.

  • In fact, that's one thing that we didn't even mention with the PPS when we talked about that is this thus have a coding already kind of embedded into it, right?

  • So does the clear have that, too?

  • They both do.

  • And in most films that most high quality films that you find today are actually gonna have a coding in the outer membrane as well.

  • It's another thing we didn't discuss is the outer membrane of the paint.

  • Protection film is also self healing.

  • Okay, so and we have to be realistic When we think about self healing, it's Maur, not self healing for rock chip impact or rock chip puncture.

  • It's more self healing for harmful washing or somebody brushing up against it while it's dirty.

  • All right, so I'm gonna go ahead and let Chris start prepping the car and work his magic regarding paint correction.

  • This is something I've tried to do in the past.

  • It you saw like this world is that they're in this car.

  • I probably did it because I I always wash my own car.

  • It's never been to a detailer.

  • I've tried to do like my own paint corrections and multi state stuff.

  • You see, it didn't hold up.

  • It looks terrible, so I'm gonna let you do the right way, and I'm gonna learn what you do it.

  • So when we go in like Chris, do its thing and I'll stop.

  • I'll stop nagging and talking to you and just just go, Okay?

  • So I want to talk to you guys a little bit about paint correction and pink correction lighting.

  • Clearly, we're inside a building, so there was no sun inside this building.

  • So what we've done is we've shut off half of the lights inside the shop.

  • I have a pain correction light here behind me, which is called a scan grip.

  • So what we're trying to do is duplicate the actual light frequency of the sun toe where when we look at the car, it shows us with this light behind me what you would see outside.

  • So if you look over here at the paint, you can see that Jay's car has very many swirls and blemishes and this is all from either improper washing or the car got rubbed up against dusted.

  • Lots of things can cause these imperfections, but we want to find them, chase them down, remove the defects, can get this car or what we call Cho Doble conditions.

  • All right, so it's been a couple of days since we started this.

  • Now, although the rap is done, we talked about that.

  • You started all of your cutting phase, right for two days.

  • So Okay, you kind of told us already what that sort of entails.

  • You've gone through it now, done it on this car.

  • So won't you tell me where we are in what's next?

  • Okay, so pretty much as you mentioned, all the cutting is done on the vehicle.

  • You can see it's totally filthy.

  • There's dust just everywhere.

  • This is when you want to rub all around the pain, right?

  • Yeah.

  • Yeah, all around right now would be the perfect timing.

  • What we've done is we've removed all the defects from the paint, but we've done it with an abrasive or rubbing compound in the cutting pat.

  • And so right now the paint is a lot blast here than it was.

  • But if we really look close, it's a little bit hazy from the abrasives in the compound.

  • But there's nothing on it now or no wax, no polish, no nothing, cause it's all been removed.

  • But as far as right now goes.

  • We do have a little bit of oil residue.

  • We have a little bit of haze that we're gonna go through.

  • I'm gonna switch to a phone pad, and then I'm gonna polish everything out with a phone pad in a final polish that's gonna give us perfect paint is close to possible.

  • And then we're gonna continue on wiping out with alcohol, and then we're gonna continue into the coding face.

  • We made it big, huge mess, and we're gonna go and clean that up.

  • We're gonna pull it outside.

  • We're gonna call this our after correction wash.

  • So we're gonna clean this up after it's all cleaned.

  • We're going to front backsides, wheels.

  • We're gonna decrease tires were gonna scrub off whole tire dressing.

  • We're gonna prep nooks and crannies where everything clean.

  • All right?

  • I'm not gonna lie for me.

  • It already looks done.

  • Like this is better than it looked the day I bought it.

  • And it was a showroom car.

  • It was inside the showroom and it never looked this good.

  • And even in this lighting, So tell me what you did after you washed it.

  • And then what?

  • Our next step is So like you said, we did the phone bath.

  • We blew everything dry with the leaf blower.

  • That's the thing.

  • You didn't touch it with a pad or a myth or no, because after that major overcorrection, you don't want to risk, you know, kind of dry, wiping an area or put more morning the pain or rub it in a little bit of dust.

  • So we blow it dry and then try to be as careful as possible.

  • Getting into final polishing stage.

  • We wiped off all the final Polish.

  • After that, we did an alcohol wipe.

  • The purpose of that is to strip out any polishing oils, because when we apply our Modesto paid coding, we want that to specifically bond to pure paint.

  • Okay, now we're doing the ceramic coating, which is obviously a topcoat.

  • It's a It's a very hard coat that's gonna be resistant to scratching and stuff like that, right?

  • It is gonna be help out with a little bit of scratch resistance, and it does that in a couple different ways.

  • It's gonna help out with a self cleaning effects of the car's got some light debris on it, and you pressure wash it.

  • Phone, gun it.

  • The self cleaning capabilities do help that come clean versus if it was stuck to the paint and then you put him in on it.

  • It does help resist scratches by being able to use a leaf blower or some sort of air, some sort of forced air to drive the vehicle.

  • Because of the hundreds of creating the best case scenario, not having touched the card does it create a deeper shine.

  • It does create a lot deeper Chyna's.
