Polish applied and then rain

Post by jacquesy » Sun Mar 12, 2017 5:03 pm

Hello

OK today I've been busy decontaminating my new car and what a mess it was. So I've washed it claybar etc., I've then come to polish it and after applying polish to the 1st panel it has started to very lightly rain.

I've managed to get the polish off the panel and that's me done for the day as the drizzle keeps on coming.

The question I have is.

Next weekend when I come to sort out the car, will I have to restart the whole process to ensure I remove the polish I have applied that had moisture within it, or can a simply rewash get it all ready.

I'd wash the car and then start polishing.

Just a two bucket wash and start polishing again.

Very glad to hear that. Spent 3hrs clay barring it today, it's had some punishment before I had it.

Shown up the poor state of Alloys though so refurbishment added to list of changes.

Get yourself a clay cloth, much quicker than a bar. :thumbs:

It's a bit late now but I'll second that. I've been won over by the fact I got the whole car done with a claying glove in about 30 minutes.
