    Guys been quite a few years since Ive uploaded and posted on here. And lucky I got these pics up on gallery, but to get the pics full size what did I do wrong?

    Did I need to resize as I uploaded or could I resize as I posted pics on thread?

    My test spot, using Meguiars PRC on Meguiars cutting pad on a Rupes mkll 15


    BEFORE:


    AFTER:


    50/50 pic of the 1st step of polishing with the Rupes and micro-fiber cutting pad and PRC.


    another 50/50 shot, this time of driver side bedside. Right side polished, Left untouched.


    sorry didn't have a before shot but had to share, had great gloss and that wet look and again from just PRC.


    Here's an after shot of hood & fender, did after do a 2nd step polish on hood with M205, foam polishing pad.


    FENDER SHOT WITH AMAZING GLOSS:


    COWL PANEL, REMOVED WIPER ARM TO GET ALL AROUND POST:


    TAPPED ALL PARTS FOR POLISHING SINCE PAINT WAS IN BAD CONDITION AND WOULD HAVE SHOWED AN UNTOUCHED AREA RIGHT AWAY.


    THOUGHT I'D SHOW CONDITION OF MY PADS WITH THE SINGLE STAGE PIGMENT ALL OVER THEM AS WELL AS A COUPLE MF TOWELS.


    FULL SHOT COMPLETE PICTURES:








    These pics is by any means a perfect detail with a great outcome. This paint was in bad condition and worried the whole time of a burn threw but luckily it didn't happen. and if you look closely down middle/horizontal indent bodyline I didn't push or worried about it at all because of SS original old paint. Didn't mention in post that after complete I went over whole truck with Meguiars D156 Synthetic spray wax so it helped blend together somewhat so not as noticeable. Also applied Solution Finish to fender well plastics to bring them back out to match with the upgraded paint so not to look out of place and last for sometime.

    Thanks for looking and sorry it took me this long to figure out again how to upload a good thread with proper size pics.

    Hey Nick, Yeah I do love SS paint. Did a 1986 Black Super Sport Monte Carlo about 2 months ago that had been setting for about 12 years. Didn't use Meguiars on it so why I didn't post it. But did turn out pretty good, though sad to say even though I took all precautions and using tape for edges and 3M 1/8 vinyl tape on high point lines I did have 2 spots that was Very thin and you know what happened.

    If I had used the PRC I may have not had those burn through spots. But from now on believe that PRC will be my go to for SS paint and then use M205 with a finishing pad on low speed and no pressure to add that extra gloss.

    Great SS paint job, Daniel. And yeah, the M205 on low speed gives such sexy gloss it's ridiculous. It's my go-to move since a colleague of mine showed it to me a couple of years ago.
