An attempt at paint correction on a 01' WJ

The wife drives an 01' WJ and it is the true definition of a daily driver. She basically drives it hard, parks it under trees both at home and work and thinks an occasional run through a car wash is good enough. The Jeep is closing in on 200k miles and with a little time on my hands I decided to see just how much improvement I could make to the paint. Knew right from the start it would be a challenge.

Re: An attempt at paint correction on a 01' WJ

After a good washing and going over with a clay bar, I hit the paint with meg's ultimate compound using a combo of LC orange flat and cyan hydrotech pads. Followed that up with M205 on white flat pads. I tried a little glaze on the hood in an effort to fill some of the clearcoat damage but it turned out to be a waste of time. Nothing short of repainting the hood would make a difference at this point. Sealed the paint up with BlackFire's wet diamond sealant and called it a day.

For a daily beater with a ton of DWA (daily wife abuse) miles on it, the Jeep still looks pretty good as long as it is not in direct sunlight, ignore the hood and don't look too closely at the rest of the paint.

Wow! Looks good Joe

This is something I'm needing to get into. My paint is generally OK, but could be better. I'd like to get it looking as good as possible.

Don't know if they ship to Scotland or not but when I place an order it is usually on my doorstep inside of 48hrs!

No such luck mate, just busy...plus it has been the "summer" so XKR and Ninjas only.....I've actually had the Jeep hired out to someone from the States...

She has came back in a hell of a mess though... I'll have her fixed up for winter time.....

Haven't heard much from Marty either, but he popped back up on the other forum a few days ago...I think he has taken off the wrap on his jeep...

Don't worry mate, the waxs don't make any different (IMO), it's the polish underneath that makes the car shine!!

Are you near East Kilbride?????



Oh, you could start here http://www.detailingworld.co.uk/foru...d.php?t=119290 This is the clean up of my Jeep....the wax I used was under 20... the rest of the products were a little dearer, but you don't need to use them all... this is the process I go through with most of the cars I do.....just give me a shout for anything else, here to help mate!

Cool I was out on an 1100 Bandit the other day. Been years since I've been on two wheels and wow it was fast

Yeah Marty has pics on here somewhere about the vinyl being removed.

I'm in a wee village about 10 miles north of Perth.

I'll check out that thread

Great turnaround for a days work Joe, looks a million times better! Hope your wife is going to be a little more considerate as to where she parks now though...
