Seeing is Believing
June 28, 2008
With about 10 hours of work, I have successfully repaired over 70 imperfections on a 9 year-old, dual-layer, "white diamond" paint job. This was a job my uncle, a master body man who knew my painting skills and patience called "difficult" saying, "We [his shop] won't try it--not white diamond."
The imperfections ran the gamut: many tiny pings (virtual pinholes sometimes into the primer); quite rough lower door edges, a few larger areas (most still smaller than a tiny pea--sometimes in the top layer only, and sometimes down to the primer), long, one minor but obnoxiously long scratch through the clearcoat, one short deeper scratch into the base paint; etc.
The door edges are perfect. The leading edge of the hood and outside mirrors were peppered with tiny imperfections--both are now virtually flawless under close examination. The long, shallow scratch is nearly gone; the deeper, shorter scratch is only slightly noticeable.
The Langka PrePaint is safe to the paint, fast and highly effective.
The Blob Eliminator works exactly as named. The Blob can be perfectly removed. I could not see the paint being removed to the cloth as the Blob Eliminator is white. It was however easy to get the feel and I quickly learned when to let up pressure and speed. Deeper repairs require more drying time lest you pull out some of the repair.
The included touch-up brushes were perfect for my larger repairs. For most I used toothpicks, both flat and slightly blunted round.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT. With reasonable skills and patience, many repairs will be flawless.
