Thumbs up

A great FAQ. Saved me asking some questions . Can this be made a sticky – perhaps in the AG or Help section.

I used SRP for the 1st time last week, but it seem it has remove some colour from the car on to the cloth. Is this normal?

Did I put too much pressure on?

Yes, if you have a single stage paint, that means, primer and then color coat.

On single stage paint (i.e non metallic), yes it's normal and no I don't think you were applying too much pressure (it needs a fair bit of pressure to perform at its best).

What you saw on the cloth would only have been 'dead' oxidised paint anyway.

I use SRP alot,its great stuff.There is probably better stuff out there but none that I can walk up the road to buy for a few quid.
I use it on my door shuts as it cleans them up and also leaves a hint of sealant behind.

Great FAQ, but this one is missing

- Is SRP body shop safe? Does it contain contaminating silicones like some of their products?
