Question on Nuvite

I sent some pictures of fillaform corrosion that I have on my 1971 Ambassador to Nuvite to get their recommendation on which polish to start with. They suggested F9.

I am not necessarily going for a mirror like shine, but I do want a good shine.

I'm wondering what it would look like if I started with F9 and then went to C and stopped there? Does anyone have pictures of what their trailer looked like after polishing with Nuvite C?

stopped at C

I took this photo at the C point. It needed S to finish the shine.

Thank you! Do you have a pic after any of the other grades?

My observation on stopping at "C",

Although it looks nice, it just doesn't have staying power. I had to back up to F7, then C for the next touch up. S seems to seal up the surface and slow down the enviable dulling.

Your milage may vary.

I wound up ordering a pound of F9, a pound of G6, and a pound of S. We will see what happens and how far it gets me.
