compound, wax

Used come meguiars compound on parts I saw some swirl marks, then waxed the whole thing with the gold carnuba paste. Man that meguiars stuff is so easy to use. It came out great.

What a coincidence, I just used the same compound on my car today. Barely had any swirls but they are gone now. Compound is so easy to use. Works amazingly on the piano black plastic trim on the doors. That's where some swirl marks were on my car.

I never got to those I totally forgot. Im going to try it there. They can use some shine.

The wax is so easy to get off and same with the compound. May be a little more expensive than turtlewax but its worth it.
