    removing years of oxidation and neglect?

    wife has a 89 Mazda MX6, no clear coat from the factory that i know of, and lots of oxidation (at least that is what i think the white spots are)

    will XMT #2 get it out? or 3M's Fine Cut Rubbing compound with a Orange LC pad on my 7424? i have access to all of the above

    thanks

    I never used rubbing compound by 3M, I think it is designed for rotary use.
    Remember, you want to start with the least agressive product, then if it won't do the job, move up to a little more agressive. So, start with XMT 2 on orange pad, do a little section at a time (18'x18'), then check your results. If it won't work, I would move up to XMT3 or SSR 2.5.

    Good luck.

    I would start as follows :

    XMT2 via orange, XMT3 via orange and then xmt3 via yellow if necessary.
