This is Frank, after being left to sit and dry out from the painting for at least six weeks, then a month spent sanding, ready for the best polishing job ever. For this job we used electric polishers and a polishing compound that's like a liquid version of 1500 grit paper.
First, a wash to get all the dust off of him, because you don't need dust scratching the new paint job.
Position the car where it's comfortable to work with for several hours.
When things start reflecting, you know you're doing good.
He's still got a lot of polishing to go. You can electrically polish the large panels but the pillars need to be done by hand. I didn't wet sand around the glass of the doors, I only wet sanded the pillars. I'll just rub polish all over until it's all shiny.
You aim for a shiny, reflective surface, that's clearly the right colour. At the moment some panels still show a ghostly sheen to them, so more polishing is required. This is a slow job, not to be rushed if you want the best possible finish.
