    Try McKees Vinyl on that plastic window. That stuff is wicked strong. I would like to see what it can do. I've seen worse BMW paint. Menz 300/400 follow up with CarPro Essence and kaboom! BMW paint hard. Or you could go with Rupes blue followed by Rupes yellow. So many polishes, so little time. Is this AJ from Competition Ready personal car?

    I'm not sure it's going to be powerful enough. This plastic back window is either past the point of no return or very close to it. It's going to take something with some abrading power.

    Me too...

    Here's a blast from the past...


    All original paint...

    1991 e34 BMW M5

    Before



    I compounded the entire finish before starting the below process to remove the shallow scratches and expose the deep scratches.


    Process
























    Meguiar's Booth at the 2002 Bimmerfest in Santa Barbara, California


    Random, Isolated, Deeper Scratches, (RIDS), can be removed, but it is an advanced technique that takes skill, patience and the right products to accomplish successfully. (A little luck helps too!)



    Then down the road a few years this dramatic before and after was used on the label when SwirlX was introduced...

    So many polishes, so little time.

    I used this car for IDA SV Testing on Monday and now there's two almost perfect Test Spots on the hood using McKee's compounds and polishes with a FLEX 3401

    Nope... I think she drives an Audi R8 for a daily driver and for a toy has a 1968 Firebird by Chip Foose.

    This belongs to our AJ that works in the warehouse. You may have seen this car in a recent new product review and how-to I wrote...
