Polyester fleece?

I understand you use fleece to do some of your polishing – does it have to be cotton fleece or can you use a polyester?

Cotton! 100%! I buy cotton flannel by the yard whenever I find it on sale.

We use only 100% cotton sweatshirt material (fuzzy side) or MicroFiber cloths...

Micro Fiber Rags!

I call them magic rags! Do they do the polishing? I am confused with all of the clear coat removal, airplane striper, wax??? I live in the great salt lake valley!

I want it to shine like a diamond! Where should I start with my 1959 ?

I love micro fiber rags! sams club ! 9 buck for about 25 of them. They will remove black scuffs from hardwood floors, require no chemicals and wow! See what it did to this sick old sink, I just wiped it out! everything gone! Right down to the original finish on wood, painted areas and what not!

1. Skip the clear coat steps...99.9% sure you don't have it on a '59.
2. Check out Perfect Polish & Polishing Tips
