A few nasty scratches have appeared over the course of my z06 ownership.
Ive had decent luck removing them with the help of a polisher and the various mirror glaze cut cleaners by Meguiars, but there is one thing that is bothering me to some extent.
The polisher tends to leave these very fine swirls that are only visible in the sunlight. I dont mean the usual swirls that are more or less inescapable, but actual kind of vortexes. Is this because im using RPMs too low on the polisher? I had it at 2000RPM as i was told a buffer (around 1000RPM) doesnt spin fast enough for scratch removal. The finest cleaner ive used so far is the swirl free polish, so maybe im not using something fine enough? Im thinking maybe machine glaze would get those out?
Im not too sure at this point, but if i cant get these out i might be forced to pay a detailer to do it, which is fairly expensive, and also the reason i opted to try doing it myself. Im sure someone here has some insights. I have the tools, i have the time, just need the knowledge.
Thanks in advance.
Read "all" the threads relative to scratch removal in the Car Care section
There dont seem to be that many, or maybe im missing them
In any event, i found that a coat of wax has done a good job of removing my problems
