    Re: The Secret to Removing Oxidation and Restoring a Show Car Finish to Antique Single Stage Paints

    I'll try not to beat a dead horse ( so to speak). I didn't take pictures, but my sister has a 1980 MG MGB Convertible ( burnt orange color). Its actually in really great shape, but I noticed the paint is oxidizing and there are a ton of swirls in it. After reading this thread and looking at products, I am developing a process, but I could use some help filling in some of the blanks.

    Step 1 - Mirror Glaze # 7 ( a couple of coats at least)
    Step 2 - Dodo Juice Supernatural Micro Prime ( I think this would take the pace of Megs #80)
    Step 3 - final polish ( this is where I could use some advice. I have the Menzerna Super finish + but Im not sure if that is too aggressive for single stage)
    Step 4 - Dodo Juice Banana Armour Hard Car Wax

    I'll work on getting photos ( it might be awhile)

    Thanks for the advice in advance!

    I apologize I'm just now catching up to your before and after pictures. I took the liberty to download them to your FREE gallery here on AGO so now I can insert them for everyone's full viewing pleasure.











    Nice work!

    The paint on this old 1962 Ford should hold up for another 56 years!

    Just to note....


    It's so important to take the time to take GREAT before pictures.

    Once you start working on old, antique single stage paint you ARE going to make it look better and even great. By then.... it's too late.

    You can NEVER go back in time and capture the before pictures. You MUST take them before you start.

    Just checked....

    This thread now has over a half million views!


    The thing that makes this interesting is that 99% of the population owns a car with a clearcoat, not a car with antique single stage paint.

    Great discussion over the value of #7 and the #7 Rub Down technique on the Autogeek Detailing 101 Facebook Group.
