    Thanks Lawrence.

    Ultimate Compound (orange and yellow pads), Ultimate Polish (white pads), Zaino Z2 (green pads) and Zaino Z8. I've been a loooong time Zaino user, this stuff always yield me excellent results in the past.

    Thanks! Heck I'm using what I have in my arsenal. Next I'll be working on the Bullitt, thankfully the paint is in excellent condition it wont need any correction. Just a good polish and sealant.

    Have you used new vinegar for cleaning? If yes, then I would suggest you do it again with old vinegar. On the other hand, the clay bar wouldn't work effectively here and you should try a paint cleaner with a handy foam pad.

    Great work on the paint! No swirls and that colour must glow now

    Yup only way is wet sand. I have one on the hood scoop.

    The clear has been damaged. It's called Topical Stain Etching, usually caused by bird shit, sap or some chemical. The painted surface appears dulled or just a little off. This is a result of reflected light being interrupted by the now irregular and deformed surface. Compounding and polishing can make these areas pop and more noticeable. Since you are only polishing the upper most raised areas. Some sealants and filler waxes can hide it a bit but it's temporary.

    The only way fix it is to wet sand the clear smooth enough that it no longer refracts the light.

    Be glad its not Wrinkle Etching, or Fracture Etching. They look like tiny "T"s, "Y"s and "L"s



    If you like, you can drop by with a case of beer and we can wet sand it real quick...and when I say "We" I really mean... You sand and I watch while drinking all the beers!!
