I have noticed some new minor scratches on the supra, these past few weeks. None appear to be too deep. Can anyone recommend any good removers? Also as far as applying scratch removers, should i use before/after waxing the car. Unfortunately I have to park my car outside so she's exposed to all kinds of shit, a.k.a neighbor hood kids :blast: Thanks

I would recommend Perfect-it II Rubbing Compound by 3M with combination of a Meguiar's Burgundy foam cutting pad on a quality polisher at a low speed, been using it for over a decade and nothing comes close ,I've tried all kinds of pads and compounds for the last 16 years and this by far is the best combination which leaves virtually no swirls even on black cars ,I'm sure there will be PC nutswingers up in here,but it's not the machine, it's the pad and compound and someone that has experience

I recently used Zaino swirl remover on my Black car and the results were amazing.

I also used a 3m product, unkown if the same product mentioned above.

Check out Zainostore.com

Use the autoglym fine abrasive compound with the Yellow Sonus cut pad. Then take the haze off with the ultrafine renovator and the white sonus pad.

Is this a good polisher? Is it a polisher at all? What do you recommend?

I personally use the Sonus Yellow Pad with Autoglym Fine Abrasive, then follow up with the White pad with the Ultrafine Renovator. Then apply Radiant wax by hand.

But autoglym products are not easily found, so you can try Megs 83, or maybe Poorboys.

That's not a polisher its a DA. This is what you want something like a "Makita 9227". You need a multi-speed "non - DA action" polisher. This one is a 7" for the big pads. You can get a little 3" air one for the tight stuff. Central Pneumatic has some real nice ones.
