    Re: hood damage

    The first & third picture look like the hood is in a very different condition compared to the second. In the first & third picture, the hood appears to be heavily oxidized. In the second picture, there appears to be product residue not completed removed, possibly from working a small area.

    My initial reaction is that you may have a different definition of what "somewhat" oxidized is or the product was applied in too large of areas & allowed to dry.

    We really would need some better pictures uploaded & a more detailed description of how the product was applied. Do you have any pictures of the hood prior to working on it? Where you working on a clean, cool surface in the shade? Clay before compound? How large of area applying compound in at a time? How long did you work in the compound in? Did you wipe of compound immediately. Microfiber towel? Same for Ultimate Polish.

    Re: hood damage

    Here are pictures from today. The left side and in front of the hood scoop were not touched or done. I used a applicator pad with compound first, circle motion. Worked it for a good 3-5 minutes. Then used a micro fibre cloth to clean off. Then applied polish with a new applicator pad and wiped off with micro fibre cloth. Did not use Clay at all before compound. I had a haze look to before and a scratched look. Did not do any of this in the sun. Hood was washed and cleaned off and dried before hand. Wiped both immediately with the towel..
