Yeah- these are a nightmare. Often the result of caustic cleaners used in the past. Can you get a picture up of the damage and we can start to problem solve.

I used Meguirs ScratchX with a CG Green Hexlogic pad with a rotary around 1000rpm. It was a massive improvement given the time I had.

Hey guys - traded in my Fiesta ZS I posted a few pages back and am now running around in this:









I've managed to tidy up the paint work after a day spent with clay bar, polish and wax. Also used Fabsil on the fabric roof - now the roof is watertight but I can't get the rain to bead on it same as the paint work - any suggestions would be most welcome . . . . . . .

Noticed a fair few car's lately around the fife area, especially a yellow seat leon cupra r..yum... but what's this "keepitclean" moto? New club? forum? or just ebay buy's... tried looking online but there's no direct forum.
