    Default Beginner

    Just had my first stab at machine polishing.
    Only started off with the products i had already, IE Megs stage1 and Megs tech wax.

    Took me 2 hrs to do a few panels, and I have to say it has made a vast improvement. I haven't taken any pictures as it is now dark and i don't think I'd be able to pick the difference up with my cam phone.
    The paint is a lot smoother and there is a great reduction in swirls and scratches. i didn't expect to eliminate them on the first stab, but they are noticeably reduced.

    Just one thing to note when machine polishing, go very careful (light) on the edges of wings etc or you could polish all the paint off down to metal. Not so much of an issue with todays hard paint finishes, just something to be aware of.

    Ta I will bear that in mind, I did take it careful on those area's. I only did a few panels as light was fading, but I'm pleased with the results. Just need to do the rest of the car now lol!!
