Other than a new paint job, is there any help for these small cracks in the paint surface. A paint job is down the road, but what can I do to help hide them in the mean time. Normal cleaning, polishing, and waxing just seem to highlight the imperfections. BTW, this is original '94 Cadillac Dark Adriatic Blue.
I took these after a waxing, and the imperfections really show up. Since the pics, I have cleaned and polished it, but the surface is only marginal. That's why you won't' see any brag pictures of my ride in this forum.
I have thought about trying the coloring waxes, but haven't purchased any yet. I'm not trying to get by "on the cheap", but a paint job isn't in the finances yet. Let me get my daughter out of Vet school this fall, and the finances will loosen their grip on my bank account. Any tip to help the surface look better via applied elbo grease is appreciated.
BTW, don't you just love the way the sun highlights the metalic in the original paint?
forget the wax, the pic on the left, shows cracking of the paint, nothing short of re paint will help. the pic on right shows scratches, air brushing will improve if you don't have too many , for a few of them you can use touch up paint, and small artist brush, thin the brush in laquer thinner as you work, Gary
