Losing The Machine: Hand Polishing to Remove Scratches & Swirl-Marks

Red Corvette Stingray

Don’t be fooled.

Just because your car has unsightly surface scratches and minor swirl-marks doesn’t mean your car needs to be machine buffed. In fact, on a car such as this 1970 Corvette Stingray LT-1, it’s a better idea to stay as far away from a machine as possible. Truth is, impurities like this can be taken care of easily and safely by hand.

The Dr. Beasley’s Paintwork Preservation Prescription begins with claying your car (after it being washed). Claying removes surface debris that causes micro-scratching and swirl-marks. Once the car has been clayed, next is polishing with Smoothing Polish. Smoothing Polish uses safe micro-abrasive technology that doesn’t harm the vehicle’s paint while smoothing the surface. After polishing, remove the polish from the surface and use Finishing Glaze to create a pure and smoother surface before waxing. Once the surface is covered, remove the glaze in preparation for wax. Next, Ivory Carnauba Wax is applied to create a glossy, protected finish to lock in the newly polished paint. Let the wax haze and remove accordingly from the surface.

Paintwork Preservation is a simple process that’s not only safe for your car’s paint, but nourishes the surface to remove minor scratches and other surface imperfections. See our video below for an expert demonstration on Paintwork Preservation.
