I had a quick read of the stickies and guides on here by Dave KG so to start I think I’m going to take his advice and get myself a medium cutting polish and a light cutting polish. Those of choice are megs #83 and megs #80. And a single compound Menzerna power gloss. I think il get a scholl s20 also as mentioned by sheriff. Tie that together with a green and orange hex logic in both 6” and 4”.

Clk55 amg paint correction help

So today I restored the headlights. I read up about the different ways people have done it but I chose the wet sanding approach. Started with 800/1500/2000/3000 followed by orange hex pad with megs 105 and 205. And sealed with chemical guys jetseal. This was my first attempt at doing this ever and I’m quite impressed to be fair. Il let the pics do the talking.

I have two black cars, things will improve over time as the car is cleaned and cleaned. That decon plus wash routine important, as black itself will show every mark I noticed your car has some bad contacts in the paint from inferior treatment...

Good luck, John Tht.

Yes it has mate, I’ve still not had the chance to use the scholl with the orange hex pad though but I’m hoping for some decent results.
