Re: Polishing paintwork
Not knowing how much you just spent, I would much rather pay a professional to complete the job than spend thousands and then start scratching away at the paint myself a few months later. If you only paid a pitance for the paint then by all means go for it and see what happens but would hate to stuff up a new paint job I just paid big money for. Also depends if it was a two pac paiint. Definately leave it or start on very small section somewhere you cant see that you can practice on.
Dont use Brasso on the paint. It is grouse stuff for chrome and plastic lenses, and absolutley reccomend it for that (have used litres of the stuff) but not on the paint surface. Can leave greasy spots thats almost impossible to get off. It is a very strong gritted cutting compound that has 'stuff' in it that protects the metal.
