Default Polishing your car with a porter cable

If your on this step we will assume that you have washed your car and clay bared.

Remember, this is a polish, not a wax.

Here is an example of micro scratches. These will be polished right out.

It'* a good idea to have your stuff in a safe place.

For polishing and scratch removal we will be using the orange or light cutting disk.

To apply the polish you will want your polisher set on 3, for polishing you want it set at 5

In this example we will be using Megauires #80. If you need a bit more cut you can use #83

Shake your bottle well, and apply a ring of liquid on the pad.

Then dab the pad on the area you will be working with.

Spread the polish out and work back and forth slowly, then go up and down. Do this 3 or 4 times.

In this example we are only doing the front end.

Then remove the polish with a good clean towel.

Here is the front end all polished up.

Here again is what we started with, below is the same area after.
