    Default polisher

    well after thinking long and hard..................

    My head hurt..... No wait....... I bought a power polisher (the one like a grinder) ive never been really happy with the paint on the car,

    WELL....

    Ive only done the bonnet so far as this was the worst part it almost looked as if it has had paint before.....

    I used a red pad and autoglym paint renovator..

    OH MY LIFE. ive never seen a shine like this.

    I didnt go into this without ALOT of research but glad i did,
    I got the variable speed polisher from halfrauds of all places for £39 as auto factors wanted well over 100 for a similar thing minus lambs wool, backing plate, dimond cutting disc and grinding disc.


    One of the sites i used for research is this http://www.polishedbliss.co.uk/acata...es_polish.html

    and the other

    http://www.cleanyourcar.co.uk/rotary-guide/info_29.html

    Not sure if there is a better way but this worked for me.

    Its took away some bad swirls also
