I picked up some Meguiars polishing stuff a few weeks ago, and i'm going to use it friday night.

Should I use the waxmaster random orbit or lots of towels? I prefer the waxmaster when putting wax on the car compared to my job by hand.

The Waxmaster looks like a decent ROB. Do you have a Velcro backing plate?

My choice for use with Meguiars polishing stuff would be a white pad. If your scratches and swirl marks are real deep then go with a yellow pad. My pad of choice is Lake Country pads. If you are following up with any fine polishing solution or a glaze then I would use a black pad for this step. Always start with the least abrasive compound first to avoid taking off as much clear coat as you can.

Here is a link that you may find useful. http://bimmer.roadfly.org/bmw/forums...1430487&page=1
When I just checked, from work, the pictures were not coming through. This may be a result of our firewall.

Keep the Pearl looking sharp. You have one fine Bonneville.

what'd u buy for products?

that could influence the choice of pads......

like waxes are usually applied with a finishing pad, pure polishes with a polishing pad.....

cleaners in extreme cases applied with cutting pad, ETC


- hey jason.....maybe if nothings going on friday night we could tackle the project together

I had nothing to do with it.... The fenders are just a nice place to grab to sit down on these creaky knees.... I think I mentioned fender covers (or maybe i just thought about it)....
