Ok its been wintry here, and its finally been a sunny day to clean the car. But its kinda windy so its cold only being 35 degrees. I didnt want to dip my hand in the bucket. So I went down to the do it urself power washer at a gas station. Well power washing isnt enough, i was gonna need to scrub it clean. So I used the brush for the car, and now their are fine scratches all over. I am really upset about this. I think some scratch remover and a buffer will do the job, but does anyone have any better suggestion? thanks

So you used a snow brush to scrub it clean? I must say, you are careless to your V! LMAO i'm kidding, but in order to get those fines scratches out, you're gonna have to use a polishing compound and a rotary buffer. Then some opti-seal to protect it.

it looks like just a light swirl marks since its so light try to use swirlx its a very very fine polish... use it by hand just make sure you rub it in till it turn into haze its a little work out but if you dont have a buffer :p well if you do have a buffer use it with a buffer it will clean it up quick "i should do my sisters Rav 4 and post some pics :p give me about 3 hours hehehe im too slow to walk around :p I thought im the only one who uses Optimum products here lol hahaha

Ok well I spent 2hrs with my buffer, and 3M scratch remover, and it got me back to where I started, whew!! Never doing that again. But I still have those fine swirl marks, but I think everyone does.... I think its age.

I mostly use Meguiars carwash, polish, and wax. I got my hands on Opti-Seal from my friend cause he does detailing professionally and gives me the leftover stuff he has before getting more lol.

There were like 4 all together, then what you said. Let me get you the html of the 4. They are on ebay, and some of these are offered painted and unpainted. Mine was like $120. Painted. Im having an issue uploading pics. maybe another time, ill try again friday morning. Another thing, if you have it professionally put on, let them know there is a connector for a spoiler behind that carboard thing on the trunk. Didnt know till I removed it to check. Cause the shop wired it to my tail light, and I didnt like that wire going all the way down. So my car was prewired for a spoiler, urs may be too, and if you need a picture of that, lemme know. Ive got a few I can show you.
