The front bumper on the miata is so badly oxidized, you might not even believe it’s painted, and the hood is nothing but a large pile of scratches. This week Zach tests 3 different methods of paint correction, from expensive and extensive, to quick, cheap, and…. Minty? Let’s see which method makes the most improvement on the miata’s ratty old paint!

Though you are correct, it's not worth it, in the old days toothpaste had a lot more 'grit' in it. More like an ultrafine finishing compound, and it worked. I don't know how great it worked for correction of problems like oxidation, but, it did a great job on swirl marks and whatnot.

You gotta use the old toothpaste with arm n hammer baking soda in it, it’s the baking soda that cleans and brightens the paint it should help with the oxidation and the water scale but idk think it does much with cracks

I recommend meguiars Ultimate compound over meguiars 205 ultra cut. 205 is a "body shop" compound, as in no silicone, as in safe for fresh 24hr old paint. BUT, no silicone means it drys stupid fast, chalks up, and is not beginner friendly. Megs ultimate is just 205+silicone, which makes it dry slower and chalk less. Therefore, more beginner friendly if you're not compounding fresh paint.
I would like to know how Zach would clean his engine bay

The toothpaste might not have worked for the paint, but it definitely works on oxidized headlights. I did it on my old 2002 BMW 325ci and it made the headlights look much better. I did use Arm & Hammer tooth paste, which might make a difference from other toothpastes because of its baking soda content

Gotta go with the all-in-one for a project like this. If you're ok with not getting absolute perfection on a car that's still going to have some issues when you're done, then there's diminishing returns on when using the 3 step Meguires. I bought a completely oxidized 87 Montero (red of all colors) and was able to make it look pretty darn good with just a $12 all in one compound picked up at the local parts chain store (AZ). Follow that with an inexpensive wax and it's just fine.

Meguiars is basic home polish kits lots of money for I bought test bottles of trade polishing pastes for a lot less than the standard kit you buy in a store, and with that you get different grades so you can work out the smallest scratches. As for toothpaste it's the bicarbonate of soda in it that people think will make it good as a polishing paste as it's an abrasive, but youtube mainly likes to fake these myths

The reason the 3D worked well for the surface scratches is because it uses a filler, in a month or so you’ll see them come back out

The stickiness is from poor residue control. When he is using M105 and removing alot of clear coat and oxidation, that is mixing in with the lubricant in the compound and creating a paste almost. Smaller section passes and pad cleaning will help with that, and prevent those particles from marring the paint even more

The toothpaste is somewhat of the placebo effect because it technically is a polisher for your teeth so whoever started that trend probably thought it would work the same

Tip- hen waxing use straight lines incase there is dirt, you get a straight line scratch(its easy to hide with wax) rather than circular motion :)

Wow, I'm really impressed with the mid-tier method. My car's paint isn't that terrible, I might give that a shot. It would certainly save a lot of time. With a real wax afterwards, I think it'd last a while too.
LEMOONAYS Hace 2 meses
if the cutting compund gums up its because the paint resedue is mixing with the compund to a ratio thats a bit to high, try doing an inital pass with more compund (youtube mowdown method) then continue on the usual path of paint correction. hope this helps, used it on many many cars myself

Duuuude nice attempt but check with Ammo NYC or Buffdaddy and then make a video on how to correct paint. I know you are doing "your" thing but you are doing it sooo sooo wrong.. It is like using olive oil as engine oil and saying its oil..... Please make a new attempt at this because sends the wrong message paint correction is a art and time consuming as hell... But I do love the effort! :)

Toothpaste is a good fine abrasive for anything relatively soft, it's particularly good on hard plastic like CD's and DVD's. I used to use it for that as a teenager quite frequently. It's a slow method for sure though, and I suspect cheap toothpaste is probably better than the more expensive ones with whitening compounds, rather than a straight up abrasive doing the bulk of the job. It's more like a polishing compound rather than cutting compound though. I think you'd need experimental approach with different brands to find one that yielded good results. The bicarbonate of soda and all that other whitening crap raises the price and does fuck all to make it a better cutting compound. Think about why a DIY method might work, and what can best be done to maximize your results, before writing it off as not working. It just requires a ton more work in preparation, not something you usually shirk from on the DIY sort of thing. The stands and angle indicators for the alignment video must have taken time and trial and error, would have been nice to see some of that put into the toothpaste section. Small complaint though and an excellent series. Thank you for the time and effort you put into each one of them.

When I first heard the toothpaste as polish bit, it was for PlayStation game discs (PS1 era), and when I heard it, it had to be baking soda toothpaste. Baking soda is actually an awesome bootleg polishing compound. Make a paste and start rubbing. As you rub, the baking soda breaks down into finer particles, so it progressively becomes a less aggressive polish. That said, you showed a pic of Colgate cavity protection toothpaste; looked it up and no baking soda. If that's the actual toothpaste you used.

Rotary buffers are best for paint correction with a compound but you need a dual action buffer for polish especially on a black car.
