    She needs it BAD.

    I tried to get an appointment 1 place and he was booked till august.

    Tried another place, he said he would do it, and I havent heard from him since.

    Tried a third place and they wanted $500 :madfawk:

    So fuck it, Im doing it myself.

    I am gonna clean it with dish soap.

    Then I will claybar with mothers claybar I just bought.

    THen I am going to go to my body shop and use their polisher and compound and he is going to show me how to do it.

    Then I am gonna wax it with meguiars gold class wax.

    Are there any flaws in my plan?

    I had Zymol in my hand and put it back for the paste meguiars because I was scared off by its non paste-ness and "cleaner wax" on the front.

    help :hsd:

    Dont use dish soap and get a better wax / sealant.

    If you need an OTC pick up some Mothers Synwax or similar. Megs Gold Class wax blows donkeys.

    Thats a myth perptuation by Zainos marketing department. If you are claying a normal wash is just fine. Wash, clay, compound, polish, seal.

    I am not sure a body shop owner is the best person to learn how to buff out a car from. Very, very, very few can actually buff out a car without leaving rotary swirls all over the paint.

    I'd register at http://autopia.org and download the detailing book and read through the car detailing and machine polishing forums.

    :hsugh: Next to aircraft remover, there are very few products that will completely strip your car's paint and clear...dish soap is not one of them.
