    Hey guys I have a red 1990 audi with bad oxidation in some spots, the passenger rear fender is worst anyway whats best to remove this, Ive read a few people suggesting vanila moose, meguires and klasse aio, whats bestfor bad oxidation? Also any opinions on SONUS SFX-1 (http://www.bettercarcare.com/son-410.html)? The rear fender also has water spots. I will also try to get pics tommorow. BTW I need something that can be applied by hand.

    in my experience, using a mild compound is the best way to go to knock out oxidation. a machine of course will make this easier, but if it's not an option, it's not an option. if you have some pics that would be more helpful. i'm sure Scott and some others have great suggestions as well.

    currently my favs are optimum products. the work time is awesome.

    Meguairs #83 DACP and #80 Speed Glaze work great on oxidation. See the swirl removal by hand sticky on the proper way to use them by hand.

    Great, thanks. What order should I go in, wash then 83 or 80 then should I wash again and apply a sealer or something or should I go right to wax? Also is that hard oxidation, will it all come out?

    Wash, 83, 80 and a paste wax...Meguiars #26 looks great on red.

    I have no idea if all that oxidation will come out without seeing your car in person but odds are it will. Make sure you refold your polishing towel for each section and keep your fingers together and even pressure on the paint so your fingertips don't cause marring.

    Sorry but I have one last question, what type of applicator do you suggest, would a microfiber sponge work for the 83, 80 and wax? Also, wash only once:confused: ?

    Can't make it any clearer than that. Read the swirl removal by hand sticky.

    Wash once unless the car gets dusty while polishing.
