B-Pillar Black Piano Cover Sanding

Id appreciate your help with some fairly deep scratches on the plastic pillars.

I tried going over with scholls S20 but it needs something stronger.

I didnt want to go with S3,but i was thinking going with wet sanding.

Does anyone have any experience with that?.

I think Scotie is correct here. wet sanding is a bit of a sledge hammer to crack the nut.

Meguiars Ultimate Compound and a few different pads should correct it. Then finish down with a light polish o something like Carpro Essence before a coating.

That is what I did on my Wife’s Mini Cooper. Still fabulous.

Because they are so sensitive and will be scratched quickly, go with a filler, I usually use Carpro Essence, but there are more to choose.

Use your S3 first on a cutting pad, then drop down to s20 on a polishing pad (yellow Rupes or similar), you could then use a finish polish such as s30/40 followed by a Gloss pad and Carpro Essence.

Keep you speeds as low as you possibly can as piano pillars don’t like heat. Speed 1 for the finishing stages is plenty.
