Talked to a gentleman by the name of Ron Black, assoc of Nuvite and handles all of their tech question concerning product usuage.
Feel free to call him with any question at 1-888-326-6489.
He also told me of this website to check out..

Filled with some excellent materials~!

Check out the listing for:

WOW

Some pictures LOOKING GOOD
I finished the three panels over the front window and the three below. Where over the ages rocks had hit the lower panel I sanded with 1200 grit wet dry after compounding and then compounded again, the rough area cleaned right up I then used the SS on the course pad then SS with the fine pad. I started not to do the fine didn't think it could get any better but it did. This course compounding stuff must be like F7. No way would SS clean up this mess by itself. All the black marks and diccoluring is gone ! I have only a few more spots that are as bad as these panels were.
I used up almost a full bottel of SS trying to find the right combination and now no way will I have enough to do the rest of the AS.
You are right on about the mineral spirits. It's no had to do and makes a big difference. I use it between every step and then after waxing I go over the waxed area with self rising flour.
I figure now that I have a process that works I have around 18 hours left to completion.
By the way I bought a gal of the Car Bright today for $18. I am very happy with it just wish I had known about it sooner.

Garry

Thumbs up Cool, everyone's moving along

Great job guys.

Garry, glad your getting it together. Sounds like your going to beat us all Still want to see some pics though

Vern, your wax looks fine to me. I need to get that in the mix. Just what I need is another reason to go over a panel AGAIN

I put about another 2.5 hours in today. So around 18 total so far.

I'm finding that I am getting some small white speckles that are just not coming off. If I use G6 I get swirls and it really does not remove the speckles very easily either.

I think it's clearcoat but I don't know so I am experimenting with some more stripping which I need to do some spots anyway.

Out of a mirror shine scale of 1 - 10, I decided I'm shooting for a solid 4.5

BTW- when I started it was 97 F in the shade....

It's all a matter of "priorities"..Which, in this day and age, is what drives all of us.. Good luck on yours..
Hey 53, I didn't mean to imply that I was going to start a project like that. Maybe sometime in the future but not anyways soon!

BTW... You're doing a great job!

Thumbs up No problem

Silvertwinky

Actually, I was thinking about your previous priorities that, you have yet to completed..lol
I read you right, at least in my mind..Do we all have this problem or is it only me? You know, the one where you think something in your mind and, expect others to be able to 'read' your mind?
MAYBE that the source of all my problems with 'women'...lmao

Garry...you' need to get some pictures taken~! Safari Tim is right, you need to have these so in the future you'll have them to refer to~
Plus, we all want to share in this too`!~

Safari Tim, ouch..(your temp.) is way too hot, I don't know how you do it~!
If I may say so, on a scale of 1-10...you're looking mighty good..at least an 8 or 9..You're way too modest~!~
You guys need to do yourself a favor, call that Ron Black and if for no other reason, pick his brains..The man is knowledgeable~!
His number again is:1-888-326-6489, just remember the time zone..He's in KS..
Okay, enough chatter..You guys are doing a "fantastic job" just keep it up~!~
btw, Garry..I haven't commented on SS mainly because..I didn't want to mesh mash the two "polishing" group into one.
I think it's great that you're using whatever you have on hand to try to clear up the problem area..I'd do the same thing and, have tried other things as well..Plse don't misunderstand me here...

ciao

btw, this picture is a new area, just rubbed it with F7 for a few minutes by hand to see what would be the outcome...actually, it's not bad the way it clears up..I'm beginning to believe for those really bad looking spots, that doing it by hand may be the ans for the start..then go on to finis it the regular method..(using the machines)

Pictures look good. Looks like Mothers is a good way to go.
