[help] What do I need?

I have some medium scratches on my car that I want to buffer out but I'm clueless as to which products are essential for this. I have everything up until the claybar stage. What do I need after claybar? polish? some specific products would be really helpful.

for scratches, providing they haven't gone through the clear, a more abrasive pad + rubbing compound would work. I personally use a wool pad + rubbing compound for scratches, then a glaze pad + glaze to restore it after.

Any specific brands or product names? Also, where do you order from?

It will all depend on how deep they are. Do you have a polisher? Depending on how deep they are, you may be able to get away with Menz Power Finish or Gloss it Extreme Cut. Can you come by my shop and we could try a few polishes to see what works for you?

I don't have a polisher but I intend to buy one soon. I'd love to drop by your shop - are you open tomorrow?

I'm working in Port Moody until around 1 and should be back at the shop by 2 for the rest of the day. I will also be around on Monday for part of the day. Just call my cell at 604.561.5121
