    Guys I need some help and insight regarding polishing with Meguiar

    So I have a 1991 Mustang that has original paint. Today while washing it I noticed some micro scratches, so I took some Meguar’s Scratch X 2.0 and polished them out by hand with a microfiber. It worked great but it also took the paint from looking like it had tons of layers of water spots and fading, to being so much brighter, shiny, smooth, etc. My intention was just to polish out the scratches, but it seems this went a step too far. I ended up doing the whole test panel to make it uniform, and the paint looks so much brighter and just much better overall. It also left a little red paint on the applicator, so unless it burned straight through the clear, I guess that means I have single stage paint?


    My questions are:


    Did I ruin anything? I’ve only done one panel and half of another and I’m afraid to do anything else. What should I do now? Will a paint correction fix this? How should I proceed?

    It is either single stage paint or that area could have been repainted. Try another area and see if you get paint transfer.
