First time machine polishing - My results

Hi all,

Firstly I want to say thank you to everyone on here that makes this such a great community and thanks for all the help and advice I have been given since I joined in September 2016.

I got my new to me 2004 Reg Honda Civic in April 2016 and have gradually been learning the many different techniques to get it up to a reasonable standard.

Over the last 4 or so months I have been dabbling with my machine polisher and although my skills with the machine and my camera are very limited I thought I would brave it on here and show my results.

I have been using a DAS6 machine. I did the first stage on the bodywork with CG Green Hex pads & Sonax EX 04-06 and used CG White Hex pads & Sonax EX 04-06 on the plastic bumpers and skirts.

To finish I used CG Black Hex pads & Sonax Final Finish.

If you have read this far here are some pictures after I washed the car today and applied some OCD Nebula wax.





























Thanks for looking.

I was about to say 'considering the age, it looks great', but I'd be pleased with those results on a much newer car!

Nice work, especially for a first time!

That looks like a nice tidy result. From what I can see the headlights look a slightly dull , you could use your skills and have a bash on the headlights now to sharpen it up even more.

Everybody starts somewhere, any new skill takes time to learn it will improve every time developing that depth and width by practical experience never stops.

Nice result....John Tht.
