    Ultimate Polish as gloss restorer again

    I worked on 2-year old Honda CR-V, grey metallic, to remove small paint defects and restore gloss.
    Small below surface problems have been treated

    Thank you.
    I tend to address bigger paint defects separately, after wash and clay, using either Flex PE8 small rotary buffer or Rupes Bigfoot Nano

    Thanks for the tip that UC might contain cinnamon. There aren't that many of us allergic to cinnamon, and for me it is the cinnamon oil.

    Okay, I had a hard time finding M205, went to all the auto parts stores finally did Walmart online and was able to get a 32 oz bottle for $20 shipped

    Re: # 7 vs. 205

    If you already have M205 then no need to use ultimate polish. UP is derived from M205. Same abrasive load but just less of them. So less cut but with

    Good to know, thanks. I did the truck and Jeep with 205 and liked the outcome, now I'll give Ultimate Polish a try. I'm retired so I don't mind spending

    Finally got around to working on the car. I ran UC with an orange LC pad on speed 5.5 on my PC.

    With this setup, it did nothing to improve

    Re: Fast gloss with Ultimate Polish/Wax

    Good to see such good results with Ultra Polish. Many people seem to go straight to Compounding when it is not required. Saves the paint.
    How long

    Re: Meguiars black pad have ANY??? Cut?

    The only cutting/correction action would be coming from the product, and it would depend on other factors as well.

    For example, as you asked,

    Welcome to MOL.

    First of all gloss coat is a ceramic coating and not a clear coat. Coatings are more durable and longer lasting than waxes

    Re: # 7 vs. 205

    The reason I asked what you were working on is because M7 is more applicable to single stage paint. It rejuvenates the paint as it becomes oxidized.

    Thread Starter: Michael Stoops

    You finally decided that trying to maintain your car’s finish by hand was too much work and the results just weren’t up to what you really wanted, so you bought a G110v2 (or similar) buffer. But you still are not 100% sure just how to use it properly. Maybe you’re even a bit nervous about it ...

    Salt Stains? In paint

    Thread Starter: FBNitro

    Just washed my car, and I found the following around both rear marker lights. I'm not sure exactly what it is, but it didn't wash off. It feels smooth, it's on both sides of the vehicle, on the plastic bumper covers. Nothing above the marker on the metal. Car is a 2011 Camaro SS. I'm...

    # 7 vs. 205

    I've used #7 for many years but after reading about 205 sounds like 205 would replace #7? BTW, a great forum, wish I would have found it earlier.
