Okay partial results are in folks. Spent the majority of my day on this new hobby/obsession of mine.
foamed with 1Z W99. brushed crevises. Rinsed.
Washed with Pinnacle body shampoo
Clayed with Mothers
Washed again with Pinnacle
Test spot square. Orange pad with XMT light swirl remover. (had to this in my Garport so no real lighting to check results. flash light kinda worked)
then white pad with XMT glaze. Since I couldn't easily move my car into the sun I decided to at least do the half of the hood and see how I did.
I wasn't sure what to expect since I couldn't tell any difference at all in the garport, But once I pulled it out into the sun I had the biggest smile ever. I'm not saying the results were perfect, but at least I'm heading in the right direction.
If I could only find a friend with a Big garage and the same passion for cars as me I'd be set.
Here's some pics. I didn't get around to the Respray section of the car. That will be next week and maybe some nice new wheels for your viewing pleasure as well.
Remember the starting point
Now a 50/50
No (less) swirls
Front view with a tiny little sun for reflection
And another view
Let me know what you think. And also what can I do differently next time
