Burn Through

Hey fellas,

I've been detailing for years and I finally did it....got too aggressive with the wet sanding getting ride of this ImageUploadedByJeepGarage1473088921.793532.jpg
ImageUploadedByJeepGarage1473088942.541598.jpg and I ended up with this ImageUploadedByJeepGarage1473088962.109547.jpg. All the pictures I've looked at, appears that I burnt through the clear coat. I took polish and microfiber towel and rubbed over it and didn't get any base coat off so I'm not sure to be honest. Anyone have experience with this? As you can imagine, it's an eye sore and more than anything I want to fix it or at the very least protect it/prevent it from getting worse. Appreciate the help.

Re: Burn Through

What compound are you using? It doesn't look like you are aggressive enough to me. If you do not get any base on your towel then you need to polish clear more. I use Chemical Guys 34 Hybrid Compound, then 36 Cutting Polish, and then 38 Final Optical Polish. This takes all swirls and wet sanding marks out of clear for a mirror like finish.

Re: Burn Through

I started wet sanding with 2000 but it didn't get the whole scratch out....it was kind of deep where you rub your finger nail over it etc. I went down to 1500 which got it out, then 2000, 2500, then used Meguairs D300 compound. I'm not sure if it's because I rubbed too hard? Or I rubbed the wrong direction but I've never experienced this before. I've wet sanded plenty of times and gotten way worse marks out of other vehicles.

Burn Through

Do you have a DA polisher? They can work wonders if you know what your doing. They can virtually eliminate the chances of doing exactly what you did.

I would start by claying the entire panel, then use a medium cut polish and work your way up to a finishing polish. If you still have some light hazing you may have to go back over with medium cut polish again. Obviously you'll have to do the entire door panel and possibly (up to you) hit the other door panel and fender to blend it all together. Finally a sealant and a wax.

Good luck!
