    Hey, what kind of tape is that? Thank you.

    The first time I found out how white paint can fool you into thinking you were defect free was the night after I did a light detail. Later that night getting gas in the dark, OMGosh. The gas station overhead LED lights highlited every single swirl, scuff & RIDS I thought I had corrected. FAIL 🙁

    I thought the tape had little men on it? LoL!

    Can you recommend any inexpensive inspection lights?

    • Well, as with most tools, you get what you pay for. Depending on what your budget is, there are plenty of great options for around $100-$150. My personal favorite light (the ones used in this video) is a DIY project that involves some photography gear and LED bulbs… you can email me if you want more information.

    In Ammo’s lighting video with Richard Lin. Where can I find that same set up he had with the LED lighting he had?

    After you find them, how do you repair them? I am new that is why I am not set up yet.

    Omg thanks. I had so much trouble trying to see any marring on a silver car. I went out and bought a 500lumen led thinking it would solve the problem lol
