Good job!
I did a friend's new blue Corolla with similar paint transfer on the rear bumper with #80 via a G100 and an 8006 pad... took it right off with no sanding needed at all.

Thanks Bros. Just trying my best here.

This paint transfer was well over a year old. Tried to remove with M86+8006. Wouldn't budge. M86+Wool , small difference. Wet sanding = Remove within 2 minutes :P

How is M86 compared to cut and finish of 84, 85, 95 and 105? I've been hearing great things about 95, 105 and 86, and having already used 84 and 85 I want to give each of the others a try... I already used 105 on a couple occasions but it was only testing on a panel or two so I have yet to appreciate what it can do on a full detail

I've been using M86 for most old paint jobs and it has done wonders for my work. Using a one liquid system, i could almost get the paint job straight to the last stage - LSP. On darker paint , usually I'll just ROB on 9006 with M82 to make sure to remove any holograms and just make the paint in a better condition.
Try it ! You'll love it.
I've also tried wet sanding on plastic lenses and woolpad with M86 to restore the finish. One word. FANTASTIC !

Looks great, but my question is, why 1500 grit? Why not 3000?

Looks good. Professional results. :xyxthumbs


Just to add this...

Often time you can remove paint transfer without wet-sanding as all you're trying to do is remove something that hopefully is only topical and this can easily be done rubbing an aggressive paint cleaner like the M04 Heavy Cut Cleaner over the paint by hand to remove the paint transfer and then come back and machine compound and polish the same area to make sure you remove any marks you may have put in using the M04 by hand.

Both approaches will work.
