In Topic: How To Remove Swirl Marks

01 January 2013 - 09:48 PM

I would second the ultimate compound from meguiars and the gold glass over the top and keep on top of it the wont go away but they will appear less obvious.

When i picked up my st170 it was horrid. It had a nasty haze on the corner of the bonnet and rear quater like someone used it as a arm chair and allways when wearing jeans. Its looking near on spotless and no swirl marks......for a 10 year old car.

I did spend 7 hours polishing lol

1. washed with hot soapy water the again in car shampoo not wash and wax.
2. autoglym 1200grit compound on the major hazing and scratches, used it wet not straight out of the bottle
3. then used a clay bar
4. autoglym paint renovator
5. gold glass

for me it would have to be;

1. wheels ( make or break a car imo)
2. exhaust
3. induction kit
4. remap
5. suspension - nothing more than 30mm drop

In Topic: Water In Spare Wheel Well.

it could well be the rear lights letting water in. Tiger seal is great.....for body kits and like you say for bits you dont want to get off ever again. I used on escort gti normal gasket sealent you can buy from halfords or a local diy store and abit of nail varnish remover or meths (white spirit is oil based and no good) to make the surfaces clean.

Also if that dont sort it check in and around the boot for and gromets that have come out and dissappered and the boot seal or rear window seal?

as long as the headlamp unit is stamped and marked for ece98 regualtions and not for the use a halogen light unit a ece 48 regulation then the hids will be fine.
