    Ultimate Compound Issue

    I had a small rock chip/scratch on the fender on a dark blue metallic F150. I used a very small amount of Ultimate Compound and a thick nap microfiber. I made the mistake of using the tip of my finger now I have a darker blue circle around the chip where I used the ultimate compound. I'm assuming I only cleaned the paint and did no clear coat damage?. The truck is a 2019 so the paint is still in excellent condition

    Re: Ultimate Compound Issue

    without a picture it is impossible to answer your question. With that said, hand application of UC with a MF towel will be nearly impossible to remove clear coat let alone enough for there to be a visible damage. It is more likely that UC removed some fine scratches surrounding the paint chip making the appearance of the paint to be darker. Scratches appear "white" against dark colored paint due to the light refractions against the marring/scratching of the paint. If you remove then, the paint will look more "wet" and in some instances darker.

    Finger tips can be aggressive.
    Hopefully you have not washed your microfiber cloth.
    Look at the cloth to see if you have the blue base coat color on it.
    If so, you may have gone through the clear coat.
    There could be a small amount from the area that was around the edge of the chip.

    If you have something like Ultimate Polish, M110 or M105, you might try a lighter application around the outer part to see if it cleans the paint to the darker blue.
    When working by hand, use a pad that helps keep the pressure even on the bottom the pad to minimize finger pressures.
    Here is a link to the "WORKING BY HAND" forum.
