Junk 1968 Nova SS

Question

Hey all, ready to polish the Nova. Have not done more than Detail Spray and Americana over the last 4 or 5 years. Figure it's time to polish for a little better finish.

 

I did the Strip Wash. I am wondering if I really need to clay. Hard to see from pictures but no scratches, maybe small swirl here and there. So, thinking of just doing the white pad and Finishing Polish. Then Americana.

 

Thoughts?

I'd hate to be the one to tell you this, but the paint is shot! It needs A LOT of work and I'll offer to take it off your hands!!

 

I agree, Use a plastic bag to test the surface to see if you feel anything. If you feel little bumps clay it, if not, do what you've been doing and enjoy the Nova!!

Surface smooth as silk. Thinking of just Finishing Polish to give a little more depth in color. Maybe the blue by hand also? Then Americana.

 

Original dog dish wheels with wide ovals.

 

So, final suggestions for polishing?

I would clay then try just using the Finishing polish. If needed step up to the Correcting polish. Nice Nova!!

Thanks a lot. Here are pics of the hood and door reflection after Strip Wash and Clay. I think the Finishing Polish will come out nice. The car was wet sanded with 4000 as a final step, done about 6 years ago.

FP followed by Revive will work fine.  Revive will be work as a paint cleaner, and does well on darker colors.  Complete with BG and Americana or Patriot and you will be set!

Ok, me again. Did Finishing Polish to hood, here is a picture of my garage ceiling light in the hood, slight reflection of me leaning over the hood. Ceiling light reflection is more pronounced now I think.

 

Slightly more gloss than precious pics after claying.

 

So, thinking to continue then do Revive, then Americana.
