How to Custom Paint a Car : Applying a Car Glazing Compound When Painting


Hi I’m Doug. I work with twenty great guys
in St. Louis at Doug Jenkins Custom Hot Rods, and we’re going to do some work for you today
on Expert Village. Now Tony is going back over everything he’s buffed with buffing compound.
Now he’s using a glazing compound and a glazing wheel on the buffer. The first he was using
was kind of a beige color, a white color, this one is more tan colored. And it’s removing
the fine swirl marks. Compound, any compound you use, the glazing compound or the initial
rubbing compound, is kind of a two part deal. Part of the work its doing is chemical, rubbing
compound actually dissolves paint a little bit. The other part is physical, there’s a
slight grit to it like toothpaste. So a really fine compound you’re sanding it a little bit
with the compound and you’re heating it up a little bit, and sloughing the paint a little
bit. This is how you get the very best shine out of a car. It comes out of the booth painted,
you color sand it, and then you buff it out, you rub it out. Now he’s using the glazing
compound to get the little fine swirls out of there. This is a about a twenty four hour
project, twenty four labor hours, to color sand and buff a car perfectly like this.
