Mr. Clean just got equipped!! Buffer Style

Thanks to Trent (04blackedge), I picked up his Meguiar's G110V1 Dual Action Polisher (Buffer) along with pads and product

1) M105 Ultra Cut Compound
2) M205 Ultra Finish Polish
3) M07 Showcar Glaze polish
4) M26 Hi-Tech Yellow Wax









----------

will be buying some new Lake Country Pads and some more product when that is gone.

I believe they are fine thread metric, but either way a hardware store will have them.

Griot's is another good option. They have an excellent warranty.

I love that Ultra cut compound series. You'll have to let me know how the Show car glaze turns out. I've wanted to try it on the GN, but i haven't known anyone to use it yet.

Show Car Glaze is good stuff. Durability isn't good, but it's not meant to be used as a standalone product.

What do you recommend? I didn't do a damn thing to it last year.
(it had a low end problem, so i didn't drive it much) I'm for sure gonna hit it with Heavy cut rubbing compound, that hasn't been done in a while.
I've got access to pretty much anything in the wide world of compounds and glazes.
So, what would you do. Its a Gloss black Lacquer finish. re-painted in 89, but other than that is pretty original.

Maybe you are aware of this already, but always ALWAYS start with the gentlest approach first and work your way up until you are satisfied you're using the right products and such to get the job done (i.e. Don't jump in there with a wool pad and a heavy cutting compound first)

I've always worked my way from heavy -> light.
My Uncle's GN (original Paint) was treated to a bit of outside storage (under cover) and some minor winter abuse, along with my cousin thinking he knew how to restore the paint.
anyways, over the summer, I took my foam pad on my wheel, used the Heavy cut compound 2.0 (i think its 9 on the meguiar scale) and rubbed the whole car. Then i took my Premier Polish & sealant to it. Then threw on a coat of the Auto Glym HD wax.
That car has never looked blacker. It made mine almost look Grey.

I don't know why you'd start with a really heavy approach, but hey, if it works for you, good for ya!

I've just been taught that you start with a less agressive compound and see how it looks after you have done just one spot of the vehicle (i.e. maybe half a fender) and if you are happy with the results, then you do the entire vehicle with it, or else you pick a heavier compound and see how that looks (not doing the entire vehicle until you've found the right combination that will give you even results with minimal work. This way you are being more efficient about the work and you are not using a compound that is too harsh.
Just IMO
