Hate to break it to you but most all of the polishing companies use an acid wash first. It is the duration of how long it stays on, and the strength of the mix that can cause issues with the seams.

I love the illegals comment. Texas is 45% latino now. 200 years ago it was 100%. Kind of difficult to know who is, and who is not an illegal.

This has been a very interesing thread.

I'm about to start polishing my Sovereign using the Rouge stick method. I'm about ready to go. Just waiting on the stripper to strip the new rear panels.

I am going to look into the Gords...long ago at first we tried the Nuvite---which WAS truly really good stuff- but it went fast and was $$$. Been working with 3M super duty rubbing compound and Mother Mag so far now --and this is good and affordable. But I am open to new products all the time......

new thread

I posted a new thread because I don't want to keep piggy-backing this one. Congrats again Trophycare. If i were just a little closer to Dallas, maybe I'd ask these guys to do my Tradewind, but I'm in Sasquatch country.

I had a guy do my 76 Sovereign with Flitz polish and it worked well on everything except some deep scratches. He was done in a long weekend and I just paid him by the hour. Huge improvement.

That which is worth waiting for usually wont wait
