Hello all! Recently decided to de-badge my old car and tried to make the paint a little better as I plan on selling it soon. First I removed paint transfer from door dings as well as a scuff on the front bumper. I used WD40 and a magic eraser. I then de-badged the entire car with some wire and hairdryer on heat which worked a charm. Used a bit of WD40 to get rid of the glue residue as well, which worked. Both steps left behind some hazing from the WD40 as well as an outline of where the badges had been. I then compound/ polished/waxed the entire car. And although not perfect, I was happy with the results. Now for the problems. After about 2 weeks all the scratches came back. The haze also came back where the scuff marks were. It looks a whole lot worse than before because the paint got darker from the detail and the scratches/haze is more obvious. I went through the whole detail process a second time and it all came back again! I don't know what I'm doing wrong and advice would be much appreciated! Products I used: Meguiar's Polish, Compund and Wax Did everything by hand
Hey guys, I haven't cleaned my GTR out for a while and will be doing so this weekend and was wondering what waxing compound would be good to use. I'm not after super expensive stuff just something that will give it a descent shine and will last a few weeks. Any ideas? Something simple to use without mixing with other compounds would be best. Could you please give some recommendations, where to buy it and the cost? Cheers, Alex
