Hi guys Wavey

Here’s my father-in-law’s car that I detailed. The interior was done a few weeks before, with MPC, various brushes, terry towels and the usual stuff.

The car’s nice looking but the colour hides the paint defects, not easy to see them. There were minor swirls relatively everywhere as well as the famous ORANGE PEEL and some isolated RDS. TBH I’ve been able to achieve about 50 % improvement. (Sorry no before pics due to limited time. We had to return home the same day. :ionoBluebiggrin

Here are the shots.

The paint below the clear coat on the boot lid has got 2 different shades. I think this’ll require wetsanding/respray. But there’s been some improvement in the gloss.

• An improvement in gloss and reflection, swirls removed to some extent
• RDS and orange peel barely removed (Need to learn wetsanding. Rather anxious to try it.)
• Combination of pad and polish not aggressive enough (used M80 and Farecla G3).
• Headlights got some swirls after polished.
• Noticed Uhoh2 some small dots of polishes on some places afterwards (a week later). Wondering how to remove these? Thinking

Recently I got the Menzerna polishes and compound (As David suggested) and the Lake country foam pads but yet to try them.
Looking for the time when I’m home alone to try wetsanding on a scrap hood. Nobody’s at home convinced with detailing, can’t convince them either Banghead but i've already been infected by the detailing virus Rofl so it's in the blood now Rofl

Your advice and suggestions are welcome as always. Thumb
