    this is my bro's fiances Jetta. she lives in queens, parking in queens is LIMITED, she parks under a rail road crossing.


    the paint is absolutely terrible....i could prolly take the fender off the car, and sand it down to bare metal USING the hood....of course the hood would be undamaged since theres so much shit on top/in it.


    and NO she cant park anywhere else :rolleyes:

    :eek3:

    Wash it -

    Claybar the entire car - I might even do it twice seeing the severity of that.

    Then it will probably need some DACP to work out any crap.

    Then NXT or Poorboys EX-P.


    If you just want to be simple go claybar then Meguiars NXT - both can be found locally.


    But from the look of that it could probably use some DACP or #80 lovin after the clay.


    For the tar use Stoner Tarminator - I get it at pepboys - that shit ROCKS


    The clay should get alot of it off.

    Skip NXT. Not durable. Get some #16. :) I love #16, so durable.

    NXT has been pretty durable for me too. 3-4 month with no problems (usually VM/NXT combo). #16 works great over NXT btw. You get that great hard candy NXT shine with #16's wetness and incredible beading.

    Priest Tango Clay the car, go over it with Meguiars DACP or #80, then #9 Swirl Remover or Clearkote's Vanilla Moose (trust me, even though DACP or #80 should remove the vast majority of the paint problems, the extra polishing of #9 or VM will definitely enhance how the car looks). Top with either Poorboy's EX w/carnauba or EX-P. The car needs to be washed every week without exception to keep contaminents from building up like that.

    I didn't get good durability at all. It left me unimpressed :(

    Did you leave it on for a while before you buffed it off?

    Paint cleaner, clay bar, machine polish, and then some wax will get that right out.

    I don't remember.

    I do like it as a pre-#16 sealer. It's got that light cleaning, and fills in quite well, and it's just good for that. Easy to work with too. :)

    Hm. If i was closer I'd help you out in a flashy flashy but I'm far away.

    Hopefully the rust can just wash of easily? Or clay? You may have to polish it off , which makes me go :ugh: but sometimes it's what you gotta do. :(
