Fixing a HEAVILY oxidized test panel!

Here's a write up from our friends at Adam's Australia:



Hello Ladies and Gentleman,

Some of you may have seen a recent post of mine regarding a hood/bonnet found at a local Wrecker.

The back story can be found here: Adam's Polishes Results - Adam's Polishes Forums

Image 2- Taped off and ready for a barrage of Adam's goodness


Image 3- Car Wash Shampoo and APC wash


Image 4- Post wash result and ready for Detail Spray and Clay Combo


Image 5- New Clay kneaded


Image 6- Sister assisting in Claying. Oxidation and grit on Clay


Image 7- Clay close up


Image 8- Post Clay and ready for Adam's 3 step Machine Polishing System with Gen4 Pads using PC 7424XP


Image 9- Adam's Severe Swirl Remover 4 passes at 5000 opm


Image 10- Post Severe Swirl Remover passes


Image 11- Adam's Swirl & Haze Remover 4 passes at 5000 opm 1 pass at 6000 opm


Image 12- Post Swirl & Haze Remover passes


Image 13- Adam's 4" FOCUS Pads at work for stubborn scratches. Using Metabo Cordless Drill with 4" Drill Backing Plate

WOW looks good . Shame to waste Adams products on that old junk hood. My car is going to need a good cleaning this spring.
