Thumbs up FINALLY, something that works!

One thing that drives me nuts is my front bumper. So many rock chips, and spots...

Decided to buy a bottle of Meguiars Mirror Glaze; Show Car Glaze at work today to try it out. I expected good results, but not this good! This stuff is amazing!
It also smells like bananas. mmmmmm its so good. Downside..the stuff looks like green puke D:



Bottom of bumper, poor thing looked beaten to hell.


used a powerball 4 paint, with a microfiber bonnet wrapped over.
Was going to do the whole car, but the drill only had enough power to polish the front end, and a little compound on the sides..
Also compounding the nasty webs. will post results when photobucket is back up.

its still better than everything else I've tried. The regular DIY meguiars ultimate polish doesn't compare to what their professional stuff does.
I expected it to dissapear quick, just by what its for. It seems like a product thats perfect for the hour before you go to a show.

if you compound, then use the polish maybe. The polish just gives it the wet look, and may glossen the paint to seem like its not there. Power application is necessarily to remove, or you'll be at it for hours.

I'm currently using a powerball 4paint, working out nice. Power drill is needed. Works better when you wrap a buffer bonnet over it.
