Hey guy, im thinking of polishing the car next or the month after. i want to get a polish which acts like a filler so it fills in scratches and try to remove holograms. im just starting to hate seeing the fine scratches show up in the sunlight. Ive been looking at getting autoglym super resin polish and the sealant aswell with it but what would you lot recommend? i have a machine polisher but not too confident using it although will have a go compounding the bonnet as that has lots of sctraches

Polish takes a top layer of paint off, it doesn't fill scratches in

The coloured t cut can work quite well

But for polish I use auto glym and Maguires ultimate compound

Make sure you do your research if you're using a machine polisher, it's very easy to burn through your paint if you don't know what your doing

i have some menzerna compound although i might use that for the bonnet. the super resin polish from what i read up fills in the scratches rather than cutting it. i also realised the autoglym paint renovator removes scratches and cuts into the paint and you can apply it by hand although i dont think thats to be applied to the car all around but the parts with oxidation or scratches. i have looked at using a machine polisher but the main thing to get experience on is how long you should be buffing until you stop polishing and checking the paint. im thinking also to get the autoglym sealant to protect the shine

These boys know their shizzle - http://www.detailingworld.co.uk - there is so much info on that site about every possible aspect of vehicle cleaning and paint renovation, including some great instructional threads about polishing machines.

Good innit? Lasts ages too before needing a top-up.

I had a pot then went Maguires and then g3 but none have been as good

Hard to put on/buff but does last for ages and gives a really nice shine

I'm a recovering polish addict only on one bottle a week now you do ok with autoglym srp then top it with two coats of the extra gloss protection. The srp won't get rid of the swirls' it just contains fillers to mask them but does a good job. If its crazy beading your after go for some sonax bsd only cheap but awesome beading.......................
