products to fight oxidation???

Postby robdog » Thu Oct 28, 2010 8:27 pm

Hello one & all. I am one of those bees w/out wings. Just curious if anyone had any recommendation for products to help remove oxidation to my 95 VW Golf. The paint job still is not cracked. I was thinking I could do this myself. Any ideas would be helpful.

I think that the best thing I have found is to start out with some rubbing research and finishing the job with polishing google.

Thanks for the link. I am currently working turtle wax rubbing compound by hand. It's takes a long time for a little area. It will be a work in progress for me.

Low speed orbital buffer works great as well... Just don't push down hard on it. Depending on how bad the oxidation is, you may need to do a little wet sanding.

Your tips have worked like a charm. When I was working w/ the rubbing compound by hand, you can see the difference. However, when you use a orbital buffer, it's looks awesome. Now I have to finish the job. Thanks again for your help :thumb:
