Default Mothers Pro Paint Restoration System Review

Hi everyone. New member here. I'm not new to Mothers products as I have used the 3 step system for the longest time. I recently got my hands on the mother's professional paint restoration system. I have read many good reviews on both products.

I have a set of aftermarket black wheels on my daily driver. They are clear coated and I figured this would be a perfect place to try these two products. I did not use foam pads. I actually used a mothers mini powerball and a power cone with the compound. I applied the polish by hand. I was not looking to get 100% correction since I daily drive this car. I just wanted them to look better. I did these two wheels off the car. I will be finishing up the other two as I lost daylight.

After reading many reviews I knew what to expect.

I'll let the pictures speak for themselves. I did take these with my iphone. I didn't have my good camera with me. But overall I am happy with both products. The compound is very easy to use. One thing that stood out to me was that is did not dust for me. It has a long working time as well. The polish worked great as well. It refined the finish and removed the haze from the compound.

This was the first wheel I worked on. All of them look the same. But you can clearly see the swirls. Don't mind the ding on the spoke.


Here's and after shot of after using the compound on a mini powerball. You can clearly see the swirls were removed and the clarity has been restored.


This is the finished shot. I sealed them up with Mothers M Tech synthetic wax. Finger got in the way lol.


This is the second wheel I worked on. It was getting dark so I moved into the garage. You can see the white oxidation between the spoke.


This is after using the compound with the power cone and polished by hand.


I had an LED flashlight on hand. You can see all the imperfections on the spoke. I got a little glare from the chrome lip.


This after using the compound with the mini powerball. Much better.


Followed up with the polish by hand. I played around with Mothers glaze after I polished this wheel . There are deeper imperfections as you can see in this photo but I have no intentions of removing them as I will be replacing these wheels with new ones due to the chrome lip starting to bubble from underneath the chrome.


I don't have any final shots of this wheel. I sealed this one up with Mothers M Tech synthetic wax as well. They look much better and I am very impressed with mothers professional paint restoration system. I would recommend both to anyone. I also liked the M Tech synthetic wax. Talk about easy removal.

I also played around with the M Tech tire shine. I applied it with a lake country tire applicator that I got on ebay. I cleaned the tires prior to applying the tire shine.

Well I finished the last two wheels with the same method. All of them look great. I took one last photo of the front driver side wheel. This was the first one I worked on. They look much better. I should have gotten an angle shot to show the tire shine better in the sun light.

In the day light.


With the sun going down. It gives a nice matte finish. I'm sure another coat will give it more gloss.


Overall I am very pleased with Mothers M Tech line.

That's a very nice write-up! I just recommended it to someone with similar wheel polishing questions -- thanks for using Mothers!

A quick follow up. I have been maintaining the wheels with M Tech spray wax and M Tech instant detailer and only using soap and water. This time around I decided to try the reflections spray wax which has been stated as being the most durable spray wax in the mothers line. This is how the wheels look after 10 weeks. Still swirl free.

FYI M Tech synthetic wax is still beading and sheeting nicely after 10 weeks.
