The 300zx Detailing Thread

Recommended Posts

Polishing new paint is absolutely fine if applying by hand. Be a little more careful when using a rotary, however a DA shouldn't give you any issues. Waxing or sealing fresh paint isn't always advised as it still needs to gas-off. It depends on how 'fresh' it is. A month or two should be more than adequate.

I know one of the bodyshops near me (held in high regard) uses Meguirs Gold Class paste on it's work??

When you build a car... any car... you have 3 choices

Cheap, Fast, or Reliable ... now you can only pick 2 of the 3....

If you pick Cheap and Fast it will not be Reliable

If you pick Cheap and Reliable it will not be Fast

If you pick Fast and Reliable it will not be Cheap

Pick your 2 and build your own car.

Wow! So what did you use to achieve that result?

Used Meguiar's ultimate polish with the DA Andrew.  I watched some utube videos on how to use a da polisher and it was so quick and easy to do. I find doing it by hand at my age with arthritis is getting harder so this is a game changer for me. 🙂

For waxing blue or purple coloured cars, I can recommend Dodo Juice Purple Haze - tried and tested on my Blue Babies......😊
