Black and micro-scratches after correction
I corrected and polished my 96 SVT Cobra using the Meg's DA MF System. I then used Optima UPG+ as an LSP. For my first time it looked pretty good. I've since washed it 2x, dryed with leaf blower and detailed with Optima UD+. I was prepping it for a show this weekend and while detailing it with a fresh MF cloth I noticed very fine straight line scratches in the hood in very bright sun. That upset me. In general you don't see it, but it's a weekend car, only been corrected a little over a month. Am I driving myself nuts or is this par for the course with certain gloss black cars?
Follow up, if there is a way to not have this happen should I be able to correct these with just polish and not have to compound again?
My LSP was 2 coats of UPG+. Would it help to top that with Collonite 845 which was my original intent? I only corrected the top 1/3 of the car so far. The hood, roof, trunk, pillars, and tops of the quarters. I hope to visit Tuscarora Dave someday and learn how to do it right.
Learning to detail for fun and to show my 96 Ford SVT Cobra, Black. My dad always said I was going to wax the paint right off my car. Would wax every weekend. GG 6" DAP
