Photo of the Month!

Check out this great photo from Mike Schumaker of Driven Auto Detail. Below, in his own words, are the steps he took to correct this b-pillar!

The picture below is of a b-pillar on a 2015 Audi Q5 that I worked on over the weekend. I was fortunate enough to receive samples from Sonax themselves last week of their new CutMax & EX 06/04. I used CutMax on a green light cut pad (now replaced with the pink pads) with the GG 6″ polisher and then EX 06/04 on a black Meg’s new foam finishing disc on the GG 6″ polisher. Results were awesome, as shown, on the b-pillar of this Audi!

I also used both Sonax products on the rest of the Audi, which I plan to post about sometime this week on a few different forums. Both products are great, but CutMax was especially impressive. Cuts really well AND finishes amazingly well (LSP ready on the Audi). No dust and no terrible odor like some of the other compounds out there. Both products will be a staple in my arsenal going forward.
