practice run with the DA

so i really want to get my S7 polished up, it has a few scuffs around the rear where an air hose has been stretched over the car and it could do with a right good polish.

I bought a bonnet from gumtree to practice on and this ihow it went

This is before



This is after



the bonnet was utterly goosed when i got it. I washed and clayed it before i polished. I used a green CG pad and CG 36 then 34.

wasnt as hard as i thought it would be if i am honest the only thing that surprised me was the colour of the pad after i was done, it had a blue tint on it, i guess there was bits of the bonnet that had been touched up and not laquered.

can i use this pad again or should it be binned? Last thing i want is to transfer blue paint onto my ibis white S7.

Wash the pad with soap and water, rinse it thoroughly and see if the colour comes out.

If you have the colour of the paint on your pad it must have been single stage paint

No it will be fine just wash it. With clear coat paint you are removing paint anyway its just clear.
