    My headlights looked pretty terrible, so I bought one of the 3M headlight restoration kits. Here's some pics of the progress. Each picture of the lights show the progress of the steps on the top lense. The bottom one is for reference. It worked well, but they don't look totally new. I'm...

    When using the Porter Cable to polish your car how much pressure should you use? I am using it for the first time and in the videos that I watched on it looked like he was using quite a bit of pressure, when I put much pressure on mine the pad doesn't spin. Can anyone shed some...

    So the stainless steel(I assume its stainless steel) trim on my 1991 looks like crap. Its hazed over and oxidized. I'm talking about the trim pieces that run up on the sides of the hood, then they run next to the bottom of the window. This piece of trim: How should I polish this piece? I...

    Got the H.I.D. kit yesterday and installed them along with polishing the headlamps. My lights were all sunbaked and didn't look very good. I purchased a "Headlight Restoration Kit" that we carry at my dealership from BG Products. Probably one of if not THE best results I have seen yet from...

    So I'm de-trimming my '71 to paint her, and I thought I should really detail the chrome. Here's the headlight bezels, and boy do they look good. Before: After: Just thought I'd share that. So if you're feeling down, just go polish your chrome! -Greg

    Well with the recent spring like weather I've had around my neck of Iowa, I got the itch to start cleaning up the ole STS more....but mother nature came back with more typical Feb. weather so whatever I did, it needed to be happen in the garage. I'd seen some recent articles about headlight...

    How do you clean YOUR chrome? Hey, I know it's come up before, scattered across various posts, but figured it deserved a thread of its own. Basically, I use chrome polish, steel wool, and elbow grease. First, I wash the panel in soap and water, sometimes using a household cleaner too. Then...

    I read the thread that night wolf (I think) created for showing the progress of his lac. He mentioned polishing his chorome with a polishing wheel on a dremel and some polish compound. Does any one have a way to do this on a more grande scale? Like he mentioned there are miles of chrome on...

    I did a little work on my 1996 STS with the 4.6 Northstar engine. I was reading the form and I seen in the recommended maintenance schedule. It was suggested to clean the throttle bode on my car after about 15 000 km my car had about 84000km on it. I figured it was time to clean my throttle...

    I have a white Cadillac with those blue parallel stripes that run the lenth of the car. Is it ok to use the polishing compound on those stripes with a buffer or should I do it manually when going over them?
  14. Detailing and Bodywork - Interior and Ext
    I am going to get my car detailed PROFESSIONALLY in two weeks. "Sweetie" is actually near perfect, yet I want them to polish and buff the finish to remove a few swirls and a few surface marks. What should I look for or ask the detailer to do? And what product works best for paint on a 1976?:nik:

    Doing this even in the garage with 95+ degree heat is a workout. Looks great though, I used Liquid Glass as my wax and it looks just like that. I plan on buying some products from Perfect Auto Finish, but I wanted to get this done today. I figure I'll hit it up with Perfect's products later in...
