My Caddy's paint is just getting horrible. Fine scratches, waterspots, spots seemed to have been from nuclear bird crap, etc. Yes, I have used cleaner wax, clay bar, almost everything short of compound. Any GOOD products to help revive the paint? I want her gleaming again.
Thanks all! V.

Re: Paint/clearcoat woes
VinnyT, from you describe, you will never bring that finish back my hand. I can tell you what I would do, but if you don't have access (or experience) using a DAbuffer, you won't enhance the look. first thing would be a hand wash and clay bar treatment, this will get all the surface contaminants off. Then I would use a DeWalt DA buffer with a yellow cutting pad and some Med-Heavy compound (which I don't sell, by choice) with the machine on med-high setting I would work the product into the finish, This process will remove many of the scratches and blemishes, next I would switch to a polishing pad, and a ligher compound. this will even out the finish nicely. Next I would use a polish to bring out the shine and debt. finally I would apply my paint seal. If you PM me I will give you more details if you like, its better getting me here email@example.com Gary
