The fiddly part was removing the ROVER lettering on the boot and cleaning the lettering with Megs metal polish. Just started on the roof. Once all the polishing has been done I think a cleaning coat of Lime Prime, followed by some *Supernatural is in order.
*or maybe Turtlewax Platinum - I found it it performs as good as SN on dark surfaces. Finish with a coat of TW Glaze Guard.
It was not only on the door Phil, as can be seen in the first photo - still plenty to do but happy so far. The initial polish before the NEC did remove some of the scratches, but the latest combination of machine, pads and polish has made the most dramatic difference.
Rather than trying to complete the whole car, I found completing a panel at a time keeps the enthusiasm going.
Norvin, I would not worry about going through the paint. If you set it to its slowest speed and keep the mop moving you will be OK. It is difficult with modern polishes and machines to 'burn' paintwork.
Best to get some decent polish as T'cut though good is quite aggressive. I did half my car with a sponge mop and though there was bordeaux residue on the head it was very little and washed out with a bit of soapy water.
Thanks Admin, this is my polishing machine it is single speed and very heavy, I also use sponge heads for cutting back paint, what I ment was you need to be carefull if you are not used to these type of machines.
