Hello, I am new to the meguiars site. it looks like a really good site and i think i will learn alot here. anyway, the car is a 1979 trans am. It was painted basecoat clear coat black and I wet sanded with 1500 then 2000 grit. I purchased a compound by 3M called finish it III, but by another car enthusiast i was recommended a meguiars compound. what is the best compound for taking out light sanding marks and also bringing the dark, rich color back.
thanks
Jake

Hi Jake,

Welcome to Meguiar's Online! :welcome

To remove 2000 grit sanding marks, I would suggest using the #85 Diamond Cut 2.0 with a W-4000 Wool pad with the rotary buffer spinning 1700 RPM. Follow this with #83 Dual Action Cleaner Polish with a W-8006 Polishing Pad with the rotary spinning 1700 RPM. Then, I would use #80 Speed Glaze with a W-8006 Polishing Pad with a PC set to speed 5.

To finish, top off with 2 coats of NXT Tech Wax.

It will look awesome!!! :xyxthumbs

I just wet sanded and buffed out a truck today and combos I suggested above are the ones I have used many many times! :)
