Gloss black B pillar tips

When I picked up my pre registered VW CC it had minor swirls all over thanks to numerous dealer washes. I will tackle that in the spring but the gloss black B pillars being softer were worse so I had a go on them this morning. I used a 3M blue finishing spot pad and Megs #205 on a rotary with very light pressure and it made them much better but there is still slight marring. I take it these panels are a high gloss plastic. They must be pretty soft but this combo is the most gentle I have. Any tips? They put these panels on loads of cars these days.

Check out AMMO NYC you tube channel, Larry did one on there recently and then put a clear (bra?) over the top to protect it. It looked quite effective..

He used #205 too but cleaned the pad off thoroughly after polishing and made a couple of passes again just using the residue in the pad. Will give that a try.

I don't know what other products you have but an AIO such as AG SRP, AF Tripple or Rejuvenate is less abrasive and could be used with your 3M Blue finishing pad and rotary.

I thought that too. I did give BH Cleanser Polish ago quickly at the end which helped a little but that could be the fillers. It was 4 degrees this morning so not ideal so I'll give it another go as and when it gets warmer. To be honest, the slight marring ex only shows under halogen etc. Under normal conditions it doesn't notice.

M205 isn't the best polish on soft surfaces. The way it breaks down is different to diminishing abrasives. M205, as awesome a polish that it is, can leave it's own footprint behind on soft surfaces..


CarPro Essence of something similar may be your friend on this occasion, use once you have polished ..

Then I used bilt hamber cleanser polish on white hex to finish

Then bilt hamber finis wax

I find you only need a very mild polish, I use dodos micro prime as this breaks down beautifully on soft surfaces.

Before.





After a couple of passes with dodos micro prime on a rotary.

Yeah I wanted to comment earlier...

Considering how little clear coat there is on B pillars and how soft it is you only need a finishing polish with a soft pad (black for starters, then white if need to) so I agree with Gonz only using DJ Micro prime.

Jon H who used Megs UC...yeah it looks good but he removed way too much clear coat needed. Do that 2-3 times and youll burn through.
