    Hey, my mom has an NBP Acura TL, and its got some pretty nasty swirls. I want to try and correct it myself, as I have corrected my white Ranger in the past, and am decent with a PC. I have a PC with all kinds of pads, and would like to know how hard or soft this paint is, and what type of combo should work on it. Any Help is appreciated.

    Somewhat soft paint. Usually, Optimum Polish or Compound, polishing pad and a PC can correct it.

    Cool, I have all of those. Any kind of particular wax that looks best? I have OCW, Meg's #7, PB's Natty Blue paste wax, and some NXT Tech.

    I have an '04 TL with the Black and the Optimum stuff is what I have. It worked really well. It was the first car I had used the PC on and I was suprised at how well it came out. Obviously black is a PITA to keep nice, I've found this out. Make sure you work the polish in completely, I didn't on the trunk lid and I could easily see the product still on.

    That looks awesome. I wont have to polish the front, since its got clear bra, and so do the mirrors. Im going to try and work on it this weekend, and take some pics when I am done.

    OCW x 2 then after the next wash, top with Natty's Blue. Trust me on this. ;)
