    A snug fit in the Meguiar's Batcave!









    Anytime you can remove any trim or other components before machine cleaning and polishing it's a good idea to do so. Here Nick removes the Bat Antenna.

    The Batmobile sees a lot of wear and tear as it's a daily driver and the SoCal environment is a relatively harsh environment as it relates to finish care.

    First we're going to do a couple of test spots, for perspective, here's a shot of the rear of the car and we'll be doing at least two test spots to dial in a process for the single stage paint on this car.



    This is the kind of swirling that is throughout the finish of the Batmobile






    Here's Nick wrapping some tape around the rubber grommet of the radio antenna to make clean up easier and to prevent getting any product on the rubber gasket or in the cracks and grooves in this area.



    After claying these areas we did two test spots, one on each side of the Turbine. On one side we did,

    M105/Rotary Buffer/W8207
    M80/G110/W-8006





    On the other side Nick did,

    M105/Rotary Buffer/W8207
    M82/G110/W9207

    Will Mike & Nick dial in the process? Will the swirls be polished away? Will the Batmobile have the shine & protection it truly deserves to fight crime? There is only one way to find out. Stay tuned, Same Meguiars forum, same Meguiars thread.
