Garage One Polishing & Paint Correction

1

Wash the car with Garage One Pro Gold Car Wash and remove surface contaminants using Garage One Poly-TEF towel (see also washing your car). 

2

Dry all surface areas and tape off any sensitive areas using automotive masking tape.

3

If the car has wax from a previous application, you may need a 50/50 mix of isopropanol and water to strip the existing wax off the surface.

4

Select the appropriate pad for compounding.

If light scratches exist, use a polishing/finishing pad

If light to medium scratches are visible, use light cutting finishing pad

If heavy scratches exist, use a compound cutting pad

5

Prep the desired pad with one light squirt of  Garage One Pro SpeedwaxThen prime the pad with Garage One Pro Polish using your finger to massage into pad.

6

Spread the product on the surface of the vehicle by taping the pad over a 2’ x 2’ area. Use slow speed to spread the product out evenly, then slowly raise the speed to 5-6.

 

7

Work the product until it has broken down and becomes a thinner, lighter color. This may take 30 seconds to 1 minute depending on condition and ambient temperature. 

 

8

Wipe the residue with a microfiber towel and buff area using a clean microfiber towel.
