Hi, decided after a bit more research etc to have a go at removing some long scratches from the NS of my black A4 cab. None were deep enough to stick on the fingernail test so after washing and drying with microfibre towel, I used my DA along with Mezerna orange pad and Meguiars ultra finishing compound knowing it wouldnt need much cut.

Once done, wached again, dried and waxed with Dodo Juice Purple Haze.

Results below and even though I say so myself I am pretty happy with the results.

Piccys !

1 - Prior to anything - note the long scratches

I keep dabbling with the idea of a machine polisher but trying to justify cost over use. I would possibly only polish once maybe twice a year but I suppose I could use it for glazes more often.

Could a local group chip in a share a kit?, I'd be happy to share with other local members in my area, would need some sort of booking out system and traceability?
