Purpose: To restore painted surfaces to an even, high luster; to remove surface scratches and swirl marks; to remove oxidation; to give the paint added durability

Procedure Why do this Recommended Products Useful Equipment Tips
1) Prepare exterior painted surfaces for compounding and/or polishing; "clay" surfaces to remove roughness and contaminants Makes buffing easier and faster Smother surfaces hold wax longer Claying requires surface lubrication. Discard clay if accidentally dropped on the ground. Magna Sponge can be rinsed off.

3) COMPOUND painted surfaces as required Removes heavy oxidation and/or heavy surface scratches Micro Compound 1.5 for light oxidation & scratches Compounding requires lower RPM (1,000 to 1,800), keeping wool pad flat and using moderate pressure
4) POLISH painted surfaces as required Removes moderate/light oxidation and/or fine surface scratches Product 24 for swirl marks and light oxidation/scratches Use separate pads for compounds, glazes, and polishes; polish and glaze between 1,400 and 2,400 RPM
