In this myth-busting course, Kelly Harris examines the science behind many commonly misunderstood paintwork issues including:

  • Colour matching and colour codes
  • Colour coverage
  • Clearcoat clarity
  • Clearcoat failure
  • Flake and pearl mismatches
  • Solvent vs water-based paint
  • Gloss, satin and matte
  • Debris and silicone inclusions
  • Types of visible sub-surface repairs
  • Blistering
  • Sticky paint
  • Paint runs and drips
  • The soft black paint myth

Each of these topics can have massive implications for our polishing choices.  To fully appreciate how factory defects and aftermarket repairs affect the detailing process takes time and experience, so take full advantage of Kelly’s decades in automotive repair, refinishing and vehicle R&D while you can!

The day will be a mixture of classroom-style and practical learning, utilizing numerous custom-made props, hands-on demonstrations, and our in-house spray booth to give pupils an unforgettable and uniquely valuable insight into paintwork itself.
