    Hi guys,

    I give the motor a wash the other day and then polished it with Auto Glymm Super Resin polish and a microfibre cloth.

    After a quickish polish i was left with a hazey finish which in black looks even more bad lol...

    Any ideas why this has happens and how to correct it and prevent it?

    :)

    Did you do it when the paintwork was warm/hot?Sounds like not all the polish has been removed

    if you have a polishing machine, you could apply a wet mop bonnet and a bit of soap, then machine polish with that. Can be hard work to polish out by hand and soapy water makes a very smooth finish with no burning of the surface.

    these polishers are cheap from motor shops or argos etc, I got a good one for £30, its brilliant.

    Have a look at the label and it tells you.
