Default wheeling

Ok guys, I am getting ready to wheel out my car, it needs it bad, my only problem is that I have never wheeled a car before, I have done tons of boats but that is allot different I would think.

Any tips on what kind of wax/polish to use would be great. Also what kind of pad?

Thanks,

I can only speak for myself, but the reason you might not be getting much of a response may be that not a lot of people 'wheel' thier bonne. (I assume you mean buffing wheel?)

I'm a claybar/Liquid Glass guy. Once Willren pointed me in that direction, I've been very happy. LG simply does not need a buffer. WAYYY to easy using a hand. If the paint has defects that you trying to remove, I still start with a clay bar, and see how it looks. If it needs something more aggressive, I use Mirror Glaze Pro series, and typically hand apply.


If you still want to go the Machanical route, a search for 'bonnet' came up with:

And a search on 'buffer' will keep you busy all afternoon.
