I have the typical fine scratches in my paint and Z5 isn't getting the job done. Any tips on getting the paint to look like glass and to eliminate the very fine scratches?
:agree: This is not a job for an amature....A good paint shop can do it for you.....Cost is roughfly $500.00!:surprised I sure am glad I am not an amature!stilcrazee said:If you use the swirl remover or polishing compound PROPERLY it should cut through the Z5.
If you car was clear coated I would be damn careful with wetsanding and or using any red rubbing compound.
If your paint is only 1 year old you should go to the place that painted it & ask how much clear was applied & if they ever wetsanded it?:huh: My car was wetsanded 4 days after it was painted...I had some gremlens popping out about a year later so I went to the shop that painted it & showed them & they said wet sand it again....We put 3 heavy coats of clear on it!:thumbsup: Good luck whatever you decide to do!:thumbsup: p.s ask Jay 90 383 how much better his car looked after I wet sanded it for him!BubbleHead said:I'm not wet sanding my Vette, not willing to risk it and the paint is only a year old.
I'm going to give the 3M swirl remover a shot, sounds like I should be ok. Just have to check out the prices of a buffer locally. My storage unit is jam packed and I doubt Renee could find mine.
:agree:BubbleHead said:The shop is about 1700 miles away. I'll just go the swirl remover route. When I picked it up, the paint was perfect, I think the towels, over the past year, are leave fine scratches.
