    Default Meguiars 3 Step system

    Just been looking at meguiers 1,2 and step 3 polishes, probably been asked before, but doesn't really mention how good it is on the laquer/ clearcoat as I can see a couple of areas on mine where someone has tried to polish out a scratch mark and has made it look a bit blemished if you see what I mean, do you reckon the 3 step system would help on this Guys?

    I think most people buy different products for each stage, such as AG for a polish, colly/pb for a wax etc...

    Have to say looks like it came up a treat on yours, it'll be interesting to see what my Star Silver comes up like and hope it'll make this blemish /hazy bit on my door look a bit better!, haven't got an orbital polisher so by hand it will be!!

    stage 1 and 2 are good product's imo, but i would recomend a different wax to top it of with, you could also try scratch-x on the affected area, and remember less is best with meg's gear...

    Try it, but I think the electrical polisher makes a huge difference with this or any other product.

    Not if you work it in properly until all the abrasives are broken down, it takes a lot of elbow grease to work it properly. It will become clear once it's been worked in properly and you may or may not see a difference, it might take several hits to ge rid of the marks.
