I would like to use sealant after I polish and use some wax on top of the sealant occasionally over the summer months. I like the look of carnauba.

I would like to buy a machine, with that said I have zero experience with it so I will begin using it on my 2002 Jetta that I drive every day. It's got plenty of paint flaws. My wife owns a VW Touareg that I would also like to polish and seal. The Camaro is my first American car. Both the VW's are black in color.

Road paint lines

Well, I was being stupid and drove over wet road paint late last night. Now I have white speckle paint along the side of my 2011 yellow camaro convertable. I am in need of advice on how to safely remove paint from the car. Thanks for your advice in advance.

I couldn't pass up today's deal on the griots 6" polisher, and am now wondering if I need different polish. I see some products are labeled as "machine" polish, will these give a noticeably better result? I only have light swirls to deal with, so I don't think I need anything for heavy cutting. All I have now is Mothers California Gold (3-step kit) that I thought was good until I started reading these forums

How about wax? Are they all good for hand or machine use?

Hey DD, I am going to make the most out of my wax application and start using pre-wax cleaners. Want to use Pinnacle's Paintwork Cleansing Lotion since I've heard good things about it.

Details around the net regarding pressure during application seems to be unclear though, so I'm asking do you really need to apply pressure when using pre-wax cleaners as though they're polishes? I'm going to apply it by hand w/ a Lake Country CCS white hand applicator pad. I know that there are very mild abrasives in paint cleaners and that the solvents in them are actually what do most of the "cleansing" action, so I would think using pressure when working it in isn't necessary but I just want to make sure.

for pre cleaners I typically do not put all that much pressure I apply buff off, I'm pretty sure there are instructions on the bottle I would try to follow that as close as you can for best results.

I was wondering how I should clean my interior panels? And what products I should use? I've got painted panels so I don't want to scratch the surface.

have you thought of wiping down with Adam's total interior or 1z einszett cockpit, and then clean up the surface with polish and wax?
