Bandit, your car is a nice one. Nice job on the LG.

Next meet we need to polish it up before the LG goes on.

Funny thing about that LG is that it always looks better after it'* baked on the car for a few hours. The day after is always a glorious thing.

Does LG work well with carnuba waxes? Sealants don't really produce shine and depth like a wax will, they're much more of a protectant though.

I'm with 95SLE on this one too, strip it, and get a Porter-Cable out and have at her, getting rid of spider webs is one of the best things you can do for your paint visually.

When you do LG you take off any wax you have on there. LG does make a nice shine the next day once it bakes on. i mean my car shines and the paint sucks


Yeah. sometime when its nice out on a weekend im gonna do and a buff again and see what happens.

Put a good wax over the LG and I'm sure it will look even better.

No, badnit, the wax would go ontop of the sealant if it was compatible. Some sealants don't take wax very well.
