    So i found some out that some tree jizzed on my car the other day staining my paint....time to do some cleaning.

    I had some 3M products laying around that seem to work pretty well....rubbing compound and polishing glaze(anyone use 3M crap?)....i picked up some S100 at the harley dealership yesterday and went to work...i finished it up today.

    I love the S100....great cheap wax....excellent stuff....easy to use....a little goes a pretty damn long way. I'll be using this for a while.

    Here are some pics...it wasnt very sunny out :wtc:

    I think this is pretty damn good for the condition the paint is in....its pretty well worn...getting thin in some spots...it wasnt in the best condition when i got it 8 years ago....but overall its not bad minus a few spots that will need body work. Eventually the whole car will be resprayed so its cool for now :hsd:

    I even polished up the wheel lips and waxed them.

    I've got some stains on my left front wheel from a tree I think, the shit won't come out for nothing.

    I even tried a clay bar today, didn't get em off. :hs:

    Try some vinegar....at acts as a very very mild acid. I wouldn't use aluminum polish on the factory wheels since they are really just clear coated.
