    Fender Instrument Care Kit

    I am ordering the Fender Instrument Care Kit to use on my dining room table. The table has many small swirls/scratches and is hazy looking. I was told by the salesman whom I purchased the Fender Instrument kit from that using the applicator included with the kit did some good on his table but it would have worked better if the swirl and haze remover were applied with a polisher. I was going to use my PC (7424), but the question I have, is which pad should I use to apply the product? I thought about the least aggressive pad first, and then move to a more aggressive pad. I will use an ultimate bonnet to remove the polish.

    Thanks,
    Mike

    Use the polishing pad, like our yellow foam polishing pads. Do a little test section and see how it goes.

    If you want to be extra careful you could start your test using a finishing pad like our W-9006 or W-9207 and then inspect your results.

    Speed setting should be at the 4.0 to 5.0 setting leaning towards the 5.0 setting for removing swirls.

    How about a before and after pictures?

    Mike,

    Thanks for the quick response. I will try this method. I will gladly take photos before and after and post them when I am done.

    Paint is usually thinnest on high points, ridges and edges, so avoid buffing directly on top of any edges, a good habit is to buff up to an edge but not buff directly on top of the edge.

    Hi TS,when you mention 'Fender Instrument care kit' are you refering to the Fender musical instrument company?

    Yes, Meguiars made an instrument care kit for them, though I believe it has been discontinued?

    Well, Meguiars made products for Fender, and also some US furniture companies. I gobbled up a few when I heard they were discontinued.

    I have a Quick Detailer type product, and also swirl removal product.

    Hey Mike, is the Lemon Oil still made, or anything furniture related?

    Re: Fender Instrument Care Kit

    i don't know if there is a connection,still with meg's.i use one or two things for my guitars.Dunlop 65 guitar polish or d'addario(can't remember the no.)both are very good.About 20Years ago,Gibson did a guitar wax in a black bottle,but it was really horrible and tough to work with and the results weren't great either. I reckon quik detailer probably would have the same result as the dunlop 65,but there's no need to try,there's no cost saving and i can get the dunlop stuff easy.Infact,i can get the dunlop easier than the quik detailer????

    i polished up my home made strat with scratch-x...worked great. I do plan on giving it another once over with a cleaner wax and polish, then the final waxing and buff.
