We use special lighting in our garage for wet sanding and polishing paint.
Original wetsanding on this car was performed by MacomShine, Fresno, CA
Paint polishing specialists
- 20 years experience - Wet sand the "orange peel" away from a new or old car and get the
wettest looking mirror finish. Besides looking flat and glossy like glass, it is also smooth to the touch like a baby's butt! If you put something on the hood it will just slide off.
It is a true art and a time consuming
process, but you will get a very wet looking mirror-like shine. Minimize "orange peel", repair scratches and defects.
Call or email for quotes and scheduling.
Wetsanding prices ............................$600
to $1500 (depending on how much sanding)
Also known as color sanding. We mask off edges and sand the paint with 1500 grit sand paper to remove "orange peel" on brand new or older cars. Scratches and water spots are repaired and any oxidation. We then machine polish with a cutting compound to remove the 1500 grit sanding scratches. After that we machine
polish with ultra fine polish for a wet looking mirror finish. We then finish with a long lasting synthetic sealer and/or wax that is very smooth to the touch. Call for a free evaluation!
Polishing prices ............................$300

Included with wetsanding above. We clay the surface then we mask off areas to be protected from product overspray. Scratches and water spots are repaired and any oxidation. We machine polish for a wet looking mirror finish. We then finish with a long lasting synthetic sealer and/or wax that is very smooth to the touch. Call for a free evaluation!
Some people say factory finishes do not have enough clear coat to sand and you will not have enough protection if you sand. If the lowest point of the clear coat is enough to protect the car then if you sand to that point and no further then you car will look its best and still be protected. The secret is to never sand any more than the lowest point of the clear coat. See illustration below:
A car should be wet sanded once and once only. After the "orange peel" is gone it will never come back. If the paint gets "spider web" scratches from incorrect car washing, it can be polished away without ever sanding. Plus the clear coat on most cars is not thick enough for more sanding.
Many expensive cars like Bentleys,
Lamborghinis, etc. are hand sanded and polished at the factory. GM, Ford, Chrysler, Honda, Toyota, etc. do not wet sand the final
clear coat because it is too much work. Now your new car can have a mirror
finish also. Please call for a price quote on wet
sanding. For example, a brand new red Corvette with factory "orange peel"
will cost $900 to give it a mirror finish. (Your
average detailer does not have the expertise for wet sanding paint). Prices subject to change depending on your car.
It's like getting a new car
without the payments!
Costs may change under the following
conditions are always pre-approved by our clients:
Paint over spray, tar, tree sap or excessive
Deep scratch repairs
I went to the LA Auto Show and was surprised at all the new cars that had scratches and "orange peel" in the paint. I took some photos of a few cars that looked decent to me. They usually sand prototypes but not production cars unless it is a very expensive car.
I get calls all the time about what I use so, you asked for it!
Here are the main products I use. Many are recommended for professionals only. For information on how to polish cars, go to Detailing 101 at MeguiarsOnline.com.
