    Best way to hide crowfeet?

    Parents have a 2000 Ford excursion in jet black. I completed a section to see the correction I could achieve with FG400. To my surprise it removed everything but the deep RIDS. Being the swirls, water spots, and oxidation are now gone, the core feet showed themselves. Sadly they're spread out everywhere.y question is, are there any products that make them less noticeable? I must give the paint credit though, it survived 10 years in the AZ sun outside 24/7 without wax(other than maybe getting some from the car wash) thanks

    Howdy Jomax.
    Posting a few PM's when I saw this thread.

    I personally don't have a solution for removing the residue now located in the CF. All I can suggest is using a product like Opti-Seal in the future, since it leaves no residue that will turn white against the sea of black ink that you revived.

    Maybe try a "black" wax to fill?

    Thanks for the reply Vegas, I'll see if I can remove the white residue from inside the crowfeet, if I can, I'll probably just jump to opti coat. My dad is thinking of repainting it, so hopefully opti coat will hold for a year or two in AZ.

    Dr. Color Chip might do the trick in filling in the tiny cracks. Might be worth a shot.

    Re: Best way to hide crowfeet?

    I've had good luck at cleaning the polish residue out of crow's feet by dipping a Q-Tip in alcohol or prep-sol and working it over the crow's foot immediately followed by concentrating a stream of water with the garden hose nozzle. Repeat if necessary and then get some clear sealant and work it into the crow's foot to finish things off.

    Anyone here ever seen the "WaterPik" ? I've often thought this would be a great tool for dealing with these crow's feet and other tiny wax/polish filled cracks.

    I did a test spot on the truck door and it has them everywhere, I have a feeling it's throughout the whole truck. Would take forever to fill them in, but might be worth it.

    Check out this thread, it is called the wipe method of applying Dr. Color Chip. I never personally used it but seemed to work well on this Bentley.

    Dr. Color Chip: Better then blobs and wet sanding!!
