Thumbs up CF clear coat restore*UPDATED 10/10/06*

i got my products in today to make my hood shine again. but i wont be able to do this lil project for another 2 or 3 weeks due to big plans. i will deff post before and after pics.

what i bought for a total of $48


this is what it looked like about a month or 2 months ago. it is by far worse now. the whole hood is white if i dont put some cleaner wax. cant even see the weaves.


**UPDATE**

well i finally got some time and "i feel like a school girl again!" -loyd dumb and dumber haha just had to put that. alright on with the pics!

heres what i used. well i didnt use the mit and the plast-x was for my headlights that i didnt get around to doing, but it works pretty good FYI. its also for oxidation and gets rid of the yellow color in the plastic.


heres what it looked like 2hrs before...






this is half with the oxidation remover. cant see much but there is a difference.




::drumroll:: AND 2HRS LATER!!








to make it easier. BEFORE...


AFTER...


and a random pic



i didnt have time to put the pure wax on cuz i had to go to work. that will be tomorrow. what ur looking at is the finished product of the oxidation remover and the polish.

SOMEONE STICKY THIS ****!

yup i should've got the 100% cotton terry cloths too but i was in a hurry to just get it done.

the only prob is that if u see it in person there is lots of little white specs all over the place. i tried to get rid of them with the oxidition remover but it didnt entirely work. got most of them though. ill post a pic of that too.

adding pure wax as we speak or type.

Great job man. Now just keep some wax on it and take care of it so you don't have to do it again.
