    What would you suggest for these faded B pillars?

    My neighbour's Subaru for me to detail.
    After I get them corrected what to use to keep them nice - just wax or maybe would a sealant be better?

    Re: What would you suggest for these faded B pillars?

    What do you got to work with?

    As far as off the shelf products...
    Meguiars 105/205 combo with a da will clean them right up.

    Others available not off the shelf...
    Sonax Cutmax/Perfect Finish
    Menzerna 400/3500
    Carpro Clearcut/Essence

    Myself, I really like Menzerna 400 and Essence when they are in that condition.

    Subscribed. Mine are the same, but not as bad.... Not sure what the material is, almost seems like a vinyl wrap or something.

    Got some M66, 80, 85 205, Ultimate Compound, 3M Perfect It III, Griot's Fast Correct Cream, and 3D HD Cut. That's about all.

    Blackfire one step...

    Just be careful with them, they can be finicky. Don't put too much heat into them/etc.

    And remember...ALWAYS start with the least aggressive method/pad/chemical first.

    Scott, have you tried other AIO's on these?

    If so, does the BF work better?

    I would give 3m perfect it 3 a shot first.
    That's a very good polish.

    Paulie, I've use BF, HD/3D Speed. Both work well.

    I really like the BF one step though. Solid product.

    Nice.

    Thanks, Scott. I'm pretty sure a guy who routinely works on 100k rides would know the right answer.

    It's a film, so thread lightly.
