    How to restore single stage paint. I love it.


    Most important...


    The power in the after shots is created in the before shots




    Why?


    Because you cannot go back in time and get the before shots. Then it's just your WORD when you tell people how bad the paint was.


    So take a few moments to stop whatever it is you're doing, read the above article for tips and then take some pictures.



    Trust me on this.... been there... done that....

    The 68 Red Firebird that I will be working on already has a great shine. But light swirl marks from improper cleaning methods with microfiber towels and dusters. I do not see any need for the #7 system. I like it a ton but just don't feel its necessary to restore a shine. Unless it will do more to help me in the next step ..removing the minor scratches... no glaze but a permanent removal. I have on hand D300 and D301 wax but I see that you favor Pinnacle products.

    Hi Mike,

    Amazing as always. Question, can I use XMT carnauba finishing glaze instead of #7 to moisturize the Paint? I ask because I purchased several bottles before it was discontinued and would like to use it if it would serve the same purpose.

    Many thanks,
    ScottH
