    Where in Texas are you?

    Maybe one of the members would be willing to give you a hand.

    Re: too old NuFinish?

    Actually I live in Kyle, TX., which is between Austin and San Antonio - but a bit closer to Austin. I've only messed up the front hood of the Saturn so far - have not touched the rest of it. I expect that the sides of the car won't have the same problem that the top surfaces have. I'll buy that cleaner that was recommended but I probably won't buy the DA because I so seldom do car waxing. With once-a-year I'll just do it the hard way. None of you said that 2 year old NuFinish was too old, so I will try using it again after the cleaning. I have a couple of fair-size paint chips on the nose of the car - from rocks, I assume. I don't have touch-up paint - future project, I think.

    @Jimmy - I used to have terrible vertigo because I have Meneire's disease. Now deaf in left ear and use hearing aid in right ear. Can't balance well so I can't ride a bike and seldom drive after dark. Several "gent" injections thru the eardrum stopped the vertigo but I always feel on the edge of dizzy.

    One of the members on the sister site is in Kyle. I forwarded him the link by pm. Hopefully when he sees it he will chime in.

    I really feel for you. My doctor and I are trying to figure if mine is Meneire's or not. (I've got the ringing, etc.) I hate the idea of giving up my motorcycle.

    In the meantime, keep us posted on the progress with your car. I hope it's a nice easy fix for you.

    Still waiting for sister site moderator.

    Meanwhile I tried the clay bar kit on a 1' X 3' section of the messed up hood. Seemed to do the job but today is a no-dry day and I'll hit the re-done area with NuFinish tomorrow if the weather is as nice as predicted.
    May not need that paint cleaner.

    Re: too old NuFinish?

    Keep in mind that products not sold here are generally not tolerated in posting but they are reasonable about it. That is why folks suggested you go to the "sister site" which is much more tolerant . I hope you find a cure and I'm sure you will. Many folks here willing to help. Welcome.....
