Mike Phillips’s Scangrip Commercial Shoot!

Detailing legend Mike Phillips is at it again with his fervent praise of the Scangrip Lighting System!

While shooting the second season of his show, Competition Ready, he took some time to shoot a commercial spot for the Scangrip lighting system.

He took a dark-colored American muscle car, gave it a wash, and then showcased how the Scangrip lighting system could help detailers find swirls and scratches. He placed a tape line on the hood and buffed one side, leaving the other side unbuffed to show how well the Scangrip lights can find imperfections post-buff.

As expected, his detailing job was flawless and the Scangrip lights worked perfectly! He went through each light (Multimatch, Sunmatch, and Matchpen) and showcased how well each one worked!

“What can I say? I love these lights! They do the 7 things I need,
1: Showcase swirls and scratches to my eyes so I can see the defects I need to remove.
2: Showcase swirls and scratches to video cameras to show others the before condition of the paint.
3: Showcase swirls and scratches to my digital camera (Canon T5i), so I can share the before condition of paint in my articles.
4: Inspect paint for missed wax after wiping the wax or sealant off a car.
5: Inspect paint for high spots when applying and removing a ceramic paint coating.
6: Inspect for sanding marks before machine compounding
7: Inspect for sanding marks that may have been missed after compounding
And sometimes… I use it for a flashlight!” – Mike Phillips
