Meguiar's Ultimate Compound: The Ultimate Review.

Well, this may be just another product review thread, but this stuff actually works!
Here's a picture of it on the trunk. (which has not been cleaned with this before/yet)


How to use:
Personally, I use many paper towels to perform this, and the method to apply is the same as waxing the car, except for the fact that this does not offer any protection/waterproofing that wax does, actually because its an abrasive, it will remove some of the protection that is left. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND WAXING AFTER USING THIS PRODUCT!

And finally for the pictures. I used it on the rear portion only (left side of picture), the front still needs to be done, but that will happen after Mid-Term Exams (Might I just add ).



Note the scratches on the front (right side) that are not on the finished side (minus wax).


ALWAYS FOLLOW PRODUCT WARNING LABELS

Only problem is that while I tested a few spots by hand it didn't much if anything at all. The scratches on the area i tested were 'filled in' so they appeared darker relative to the rest of the paint but were still there. Only a buffer can really heat the clear coat enough to actually get rid of the scratches.

We have a power buffer, maybe I'll convince my dad to let me use it!

Paper towels = 1500 grit sandpaper. Get some microfiber cloths if you're going to touch paint.

Well, I found the power buffer, and as a reward for finding it, I was allowed to use it! Here's the final results the first thing next day. (I'll get better pics when the snow melts)






And the mirrors: I found this and the wiper cowl to be the most interesting "Find"
When New (deer accident is why the mirror is so dirty)

Note the shine

And Now:

In some internal family research, my dad says that I am the first to wax that car in over 15 years!

i use this stuff when refurbing ATC displays on the clear lens. I also buff headlights with it and wax afterward. You dont need a headlight polishing kit. this is all you need, with a microfiber cloth, and wax.

This thread is old enough I forget... But I usually get it once every 6 months, and its due again in a few days, but I think I'll just repaint the whole car instead...

Its not the cheapest solution, but surely will restore its beauty for the longest time.

Hey, I use this one, too! And you're right. Definitely needs waxing after using it!
