Paint correction isn't hard, just time consuming.

With today's random orbital polishers, it's way harder to burn the paint than with a rotary like the old school body shops.

I do all my own paint correction, have multiple polishers, cabinets full of supplies, and I still despise doing it! Very tedious and takes a perfectionist.

Anyone who is interested in doing it yourself can, especially with today's online forums and resources. Visit Autogeek, Autopia, Meguiarsonline, etc to find some good info.

So if you have stripes would it be a good idea to tape off stripes separate from the paint when doing a paint correction? I have a Gen IV and the stripes are raised from the paint.

Yes, that is the safest/best way.

When I did my Gen IV, I used painter's tape. The stripes are added after the car is BC/CC on a Gen IV, so there is a definite edge and you don't want to risk burning through it.

Nice results! Yep, correction definitely makes it look slick. I'm an autogeeker so I do all my own detailing correction. I have a PC7424xp and did mine last summer. Took me like 2 months for a 2 step full correction and I felt like I was 100 years old when I was done but the results are worth it:

Same here except I went with the Makita BO6040. It's nice to be able to just DIY once a year.

I do mine also, using a Griot's buffer, which is I think is a rebranded PC or similar.

That is correct. It's also quite small compared to others like the Flex or Makita. But nonetheless quite capable.

Do you use their products otherwise? I do all their detail supplies up to but not including polishes. I use Menzerna polish.

I don't use their polishes either. I'm using Megiuar's 205 and 105. I also use Zaino as my final polish. I do use some of their other car care products also which I buy through Advanced Auto when I need to hit a $50 spend threshold for the $25 coupon. The nice thing about Griot's is you know it is good and won't hurt your car (even if it is pricey).

I hear a lot of great things about Mezerna.

The Griot's is not a rebrand of a Porter Cable. It's actually more powerful and capable than the 7424.

I have a Flex as my main workhorse, and then a Griot's 5" and small 3" for finishing and tight areas.

Didn't know that about the Griot buffer. Also, they just introduced a new buffer called the BOSS.


About THE BOSS? Orbitals - Griot's Garage

How do you like their 3 in. polisher? I was thinking about picking that up as it's hard to use the bigger one on all the angles and crevices.

The 3 inch is great for pilars, tight angled areas, tops of viper rear bumper, etc.

I couldn't imagine trying to get into some of those areas with a 5" or 6" pad.

As for my full-size Griot's, it's a good beginner machine, but if you find yourself doing a lot of cars, you would want something with a little more cutting power to reduce work time. Porter Cable and Griot's are not direct drive, so it's great for being idiot proof because if you push too hard, the tool just stops spinning and won't burn the paint, but on the flip side doesn't have the power for deep correction without sitting on the spot for a long time.
