note to self - do not get near areas of peeling laquer

heh - well with bm you are starting from hard anyway so your e21 is going to try your patience..!! first car I ever corrected fully was my e39 which looked like this when I bought it:


i so nearly threw in the towel on the whole idea of detailing as this remains probably one of the very hardest corrections we have ever done

here is how the car looked after:

I have dead quick question on this video. Between using the white side and the black side of the pad, some stuff is out of shot. Is more polish applied to the black side of the pad or is it just used bare to buff the residual polish that's already on the car from the application with the white side?

Cheers

you always need some polish when you are working the surface with the pad on either the cutting side or the finishing side. no hard and fast rule tbh if there is plenty of polish on the surface when you finish with the cutting side, no need to put more on but put more on if the surface is looking a bit dry.

That is very impressive.

I like the idea of the slightly different approach of the P1 compared to other polishes. I ordered a P system intro kit earlier in the week and hope to give it a go on my wife's Golf at the weekend. It has hard VW paint which I am hoping the P1 on the wool pad will cut through the swirls nicely. I am glad that it is good by hand also, as that will be useful under the door handles etc.

Still pondering on having a shot and see how it fares to my favourite Scholl polish.
Both sound relatively the same but im game to have a blast for the sake of science.
