DLR Detailing Posted January 5, 2011 Share Posted January 5, 2011 I'd like to share my latest experience using Hyper Compound with the forum. I'll start off by saying I usually don't take pictures of my jobs and this one is no exception. Sorry guys, no before and afters. The owner just wanted a good cleanup and waxing with the intentions of a complete re-spray in the summer. The vehicle: A dark blue metallic, Ford 3500 4door dually with 200,000+ construction work truck miles, in all it's glory. After a thorough wash and clay barring you can imagine what the finish looked like. Very used and abused. Of course, this was a budget job as well. I usually perform multi - stage correction work even when the customer only wants a "good wax job" because of my own OCD'ness. Being a weekend warrior, I'm usually not worried about spending a little extra time on a job. Due to the shear size and time constraints with the Ford, I wanted to see what I could "get away with" using Hyper Compound and a PFW pad on my Flex. I was completely blown away with the amount of correction achieved with an acceptable; in this case LSP ready finish, requiring minimal buffing time per panel. Out of guilt, I stepped down with Poli-Seal/Polish ll combo on a white pad. Topped it all with OCW. A little Metal Polish for the bumpers, Opti-Bond for the tires and out the door it went. A very satisfied customer indeed! "Not going to paint it now" were his words. Who would have thought Hyper Compound as a 1 stepper??? Conclusion: One old happy rag pusher that took on a behemoth and won, in less than 8hrs. Thanks to Optimum! P.S. I was able to get out of bed the next morning too!
