I masked all the rubber trim




And now could begin polishing. The combo I opted for was Menzerna SIP with a Orange Lake Country Pad on a Makita rotary. Here are the befores and afters of a few panels

I alcohol wiped down the car and begin to prepare for the 2nd stage of polishing. The paint was already shining very well but I wanted to push the gloss a little higher so I jeweled the paint with Menzerna Po85RD a white Lake Country pad and my Flex3401.


Here is a the gloss I was achieving with this combination




I gave the paint a 2nd and final alcohol wipe down to clean off the polishing oils then unmasked the car








After unmasking and cleaning off the polishing oils I inspected the paint with my 3M Sun Gun which omits the same spectrum light as the sun.


Perfect




I had to take another shot of the gloss, and this was with no wax on, only polishing




Wax of the day was Swissvax Concorso


Applied




While the wax was curing I attended to other areas like putting Poor Boys Wheel Sealant on the rims and exhaust






Here are a couple after pics of the exhaust




And I cleaned the windows with my Glass Master Pro.




Unfortunately it had rained but I got a small window to quickly take a few after shots which I don't think turned out that bad and actually it was kind of cool to still see the paint looking very glossy on a cloudy day







The gloss was looking very nice in this pic
