    I was following the writeup below. There is some discussion on the type of towel to use. I think it's less important what towel you use for the no 7 rub off if you are following up with polish. You...

  17. Re: Something different. 1968 AMC Rebel SST convertible!!!

    That's really awesome! I noticed in the photo below you don't have any masking tape on the trim. Am I being too conservative masking mine off when I polish? Do you have any trouble getting all the...
