    Quick Polish - an experiment

    My buddy brought his 2011 Kia Koupe over for polish and detailing.
    The car was a mess....hadn't been cleaned in over 4 years. It had severe scratches as well as small dents that required paintless dent removal.

    Original plan was to hit the paint with M105, M205, and finally M305 via Torqx polisher.
    However, I ran out of time due to all of the interior cleaning that was required....super mess...gum, soft drink spills, etc. OMIGOSH ..the car was trashed inside !!!

    So here's what I did:
    1) Applied 3M Super Duty compound by hand to remove the bad scratches.
    (It's really rough stuff and I don't know of an equivalent Maguiar's product)
    2) Applied ScratchX 2.0 via Torqx - orange pad.
    3) Applied M305 glaze via Torqx - black pad.

    For a black finish, this turned-out pretty well.....and took less than 6 hours to complete.
    Any and all comments appreciated. I know, I know....ScratchX is supposedly a hand-application product.
    However, it appears to work well with the Torqx for scratch remediation.

    Hey syswizard,

    Sounds like a good time. You do know that M305 is for fresh paint correct?

    Nick - you mean M305 won't work on older paint ?
    If not, what is recommended then for older paint ?

    Are we referring to the same product? M305 Ultra Durable Finishing Glaze, is a breathable, silicone free protectant for fresh paint, like out of a paint shop or body shop.

    Yes Nick, that's the product. It won't work on older finishes ?
    If not, what comparable glaze is recommended ?
