My paint has never been corrected, it is the stock RS spoiler, and it is scratched bad. Before I knew anything about detailing, I would use the brush at the local car wash. Now that I know stuff, I only use the 2 bucket method at home with grit guards, foam gun, 2 Adam's wash pads, and Adam's soap. I dry with a leaf blower and an Adam's Great White Drying Towel.

Holy moly! Dude, that face palm isn't remotely big enough!

If you were using that brush, your paint is in nasty shape and you are definitely going to need a swirl and haze remover. More importantly, your technique with the polisher is going to have to be darn near flawless because no matter what you use, your results are not going to be good if you are using the polisher wrong. You don't need to worry about damaging anything as much as you will end up being frustrated because you won't be able to get the results you want. Too bad you're not closer. I would love to see your paint and be able to show you what it is going to take to fix it.

My videos are there for you to watch. I detail the products you need, how much product to use and how to use them. Again, technique is going to be critical with your success. Move the polisher too fast or at too high a speed and you won't do anything but waste time, money and product. Danger is not an issues with the PC and Adam's stuff, technique definitely is. I can't stress it enough.

I'm about an hour and 45 minutes away. I've been trying to get Adam's to do a detailing thing in Northern Kentucky or Cincy at one of their dealers or something lol. I'm 20 minutes from Cincy

Dude, drive on down here! I did a clinic in northern Kentucky last year. You must have missed it. If you make the drive, I'll show you how to fix your paint before you spend a dime. You'll have to feed me though and I hang out at some high class joints!
