Clay/Machine polish

Post by Simon on Mon 23 Aug 2010, 05:09

Would anyone be interested in a clay/machine polish?

This week i've spent 2-3 days (a few half days due to weather) on a friends Fiesta removing swirl marks and minor scratches

Here's the pics

Wash off first




Then clay the whole car



I then used a final finishing pad with Meguiars NXT liquid wax, then sealed with NXT hard wax by hand









Final results

LOL that might help (blonde moment)

The above was charged at 100 and needed quite a bit of claying to get smooth i'd say a rough ball park figure would be 80-120 for yours as it is slightly larger than the fiesta

What product did you use with the final finish pad to get any corrective work done?

It was meguiars nxt with a lake county pad, seemed to work good on the fiesta tbh the pad is really good it didnt heat the paint up half as quick as the old 3m i used to use so could get the finish wanted without paint blistering (as the 3m did)

pic of the boot panel before putting the machine on it




I think the laqure on this must be softer than normal, that just a final finishing pad took out the fine scratches, but i do have a cut and course cutting pads also lake county which i'm loving at the moment

I would be 100% interested, but I'm strapped for cash these next couple of weeks. Being purchasing a few goodies for the xsi and rallye.
