Well I decided it was finally time to take care of a few paint blemishes on my car, B2, today.(Nickname is B2 for B2 bomber and it is the second bonne in the family. Other is a black '98 SLE with about 50k) When I got it a couple months ago it had overspray on the bumper cover near the front headlight and grille area. The rear had scuffs from the taillight down to the exhaust tip as well as some circular scratches. A new taillight is on its way as the current one has the same scuffing as well as a hairline crack. The scuffs were pretty bad, the overspray was just severely dull and unattractive. Granted most people never even noticed these flaws but I knew they were there so they had to be fixed. Also note in the pictures there is a blemish in the paint on the front bumper cover. It was repainted at one time which is why there was overspray. Overall I am pleased considering I used no real special products and this was my first time using a machine polisher of any kind but more specifically a rotary(Makita 9227). Well, here are the pics. The rear still needs a little work to remove the light haze. Also note that every picture actually looks better in person, even the befores.

The Presta 1500 and white compounding pad never needed to be used.

Obviously there are still flaws such as rock chips but that can't be helped now. I hope to pick up some 2000 grit and start wetsanding that orange peel out of the front bumper cover tomorrow.
