colored cars tend to show more dirt and scratches, polishing is what will
bring out the deep wet-look that you know you remember you want. A
true wet-look is achieved by
polishing the paint on your car before waxing.
The polish basically works by rubbing a super fine
abrasive against your
abrasive scrubs off the
paint contaminates (like the tree sap), and also rounds the edges of
or swirl marks on a micro-scopic level to make them less visible.
will require the use of a rubbing
compound, or scratch remover.
A rubbing compound works the same way that
the polish does except that the abrasive is more coarse or rough. The rubbing compound works
a little more
quickly and must be used
with care to prevent damaging the paint further. Sometimes a deep scratch
can only be fixed by
repainting, but rubbing compound can usually do the trick.
The polishes and compounds we offer are used by professionals and beginners alike. The polish and compound can be applied by hand. For better performance and results, an orbital or high speed buffer is recommended depending on your experience.
