  1. Polished for the first time

    No, after the correcting polish I buffed it off then went over it with finishing polish buffed it off and sealed with paint sealant. I'm gonna try working it a little longer on my next vehicle in a few weeks.
  2. Polished for the first time

    It wasn't humid. Maybe I didn't work it long enough. I'll try working it longer on my next vehicle. Generally how long do you work a section? I think I did it for about 2 mins. It never became oily or Vaseline like.
  3. Polished for the first time

    Too much makes it hard to remove? I don't mean it was hard to remove because there was too much of it being smeared around. I mean it was so hard to rub off. I had to put some serious pressure on it to get it off with an Adam's towel. I probably worked it a few minutes maybe. I thought I used about the same amount of polish as I have seen in the videos.
  4. I finally got a chance to polish my wife's car this weekend. I washed it with strip wash, clayed it, washed again and dried the car. I then used Adam's correcting polish, then the finishing polish, then paint sealant. All went as expected except the first step of the polishing - the correcting polish. I would polish a section about 2'x2' then wipe it off. The correcting polish was very hard to wipe off, very hard. Hardest time I have ever had wiping something off. The finishing polish and paint sealant came off very easy. It was overcast, no sun at all, and probably in the high 60s. In case weather had something to do with it. I still have my truck and Jeep to do soon and don't look forward to fighting the correcting polish again. Thoughts?
  5. Polishing an older Jeep

    Thanks, I'll check that out tonight.
  6. Polishing an older Jeep

    According to the forums I frequent for Jeep TJs they say it is base and clear. Thanks
  7. Polishing an older Jeep

    I misspoke. I meant to say foam as the less aggressive. I watched one of the videos this morning to confirm which one was less aggressive and I still misspoke. thanks,
  8. Polishing an older Jeep

    For the 2 new vehicles I intended to use the less aggressive microfiber pads. Thanks for the info on the single stage paint - I wasn't aware of that possibility. If the Jeep turns out to have single stage paint what steps do I take to polish it? And wax? Do you wax it differently? I currently use Adam's paint sealant and Americana wax on my new cars. thanks,
  9. Polishing an older Jeep

    I plan to polish and correct my cars soon - a 2016 GMC Sierra, a 2014 Nissan Pathfinder and a 2003 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon. I was going to use a Porter Cable with paint correcting polish then the finishing polish on all three. My question is about the Jeep. It is over 14 years old and I just bought it a year ago. It's white and in decent shape for an older Jeep that has probably not been given the most attention detailing wise over the years. The paint isn't perfect but it's not bad considering the age. It has small scratches here and there. I did clay it a few days ago and it obviously doesn't feel as smooth as when I clay my 2016 truck or wife 2014 Nissan. Is my plan to correct and polish it with correcting polish and finish polish a good approach on an older vehicle?
  10. where? how much? i ended up just being the switch and the repair was free but i do have 3 cars to polish so something more comfortable might be nice.
  11. Rinseless Wash!

    yes I have a post there
  12. Rinseless Wash!

    I have 2 unused bottles of RW if anyone in DFW wants them. Don't want to ship them so hopefully someone locally wants them. If you have something to trade, great, if not you can still have them. I'm in far North DFW area.
  13. I have the following bottle to trade/sell. Hopefully someone locally in DFW wants some of this. Don't feel like shipping it. Not sure what I want in trade - maybe clay bar, ultra plush drying towel, tire cleaner, odor neutralizer. Let me know what you have. Buttery Wax Car Shampoo Carpet and Upholstery Cleaner H2O G&G Rinseless Wash (2)
  14. Is it just me?

    Now if there were citrus smelling detail and interior spray I might be wiping my car down daily. I just bout 6 of the lemon scented fresheners. We need more citrus stuff
  15. I bought a Porter Cable polisher about 10 months ago but never used. Finally decided to correct and polish the wife's car this past weekend. I'm glad I took it out the box before I strip washed her car because the darn thing didn't' work. Never used it before. It comes on about every 20 or so pushes of the switch but if you turn it off it stays off for a while. Brought it in to be fixed. Hopefully its just the switch.
