Spending too much will not be necessary in order for you to get a desired great looking finish for your vehicle. The process of polishing your ride with a rotating wheel is called “wheeling”. This process involves heating the car paint’s outer surface, wherein blemishes will be removed. It is advised by professionals and auto detailing shops to limit this process to once a year. This is to avoid permanent damage to your vehicle’s paint surface. The following procedures below will aid you in waxing/polishing your vehicle the way the experts do in a very short period of time.
Let’s start by first washing your ride which is preferably in a shaded area. Make sure you wash your vehicle appropriately to avoid further scratches when the wax will be applied later. After washing, please take note not to thoroughly dry your vehicle yet.
Get a slightly damp pad that is clean and place it on your polishing wheel. Apply a sufficient amount of compound on you’re a single body panel. Evenly spread the polish using the polishing wheel using only moderate speed. Take note that the wheel should be parallel to the car’s body surface to avoid swirl marks and maintain constant pressure. Repeat this motion back and forth over the body surface of the panel. In continuing this process, the clear coat would heat up. Eventually, you would notice that certain light scratches or damages would start to go away. Right after, the desired finish would also be visible. Apply this process to the rest of the panels of your vehicle as well.
You would notice that the foam pad accumulates compound. Wash it with a power washer, if you have one on hand, so that optimum results would be attained. Make sure, of course, that the whole vehicle is polished evenly and avoid burning finishes on certain edges of your vehicle.
You may wash your car with a power washer lightly, or as recommended – wash it by hand and dry it entirely.
Now, put a soft, clean foam pad on your orbital sander. Place the appropriate amount of paste wax and finishing polish. In addition, make sure you are using a good wax for best results. Work it at moderate speed, and with light pressure, spread it on to your car or vehicle evenly. Once this is done, it is advised that you use a microfiber cloth or towel to finally wipe the entire body surface of your ride.
