My cobra needs a good buffin...or sandin and polish or what ever.

Whats the best way to revive an old paint job thats not been washed in 5 years and has lots of swirls from a dipshit at a dealership who thought he knew how to buff paint.


I need to freshen up the cobras BLACK paint... its not lost the clear coat or anything just never got claybared or waxed like it should have.

you can have it compounded and buffed by someone that knows what to do or have claybar it and then wax it yourself like a maniac for a few days.

A buddy of mine owns a body shop and is going to help me do mine. He suggested we lightly wetsand the entire car and then buff it. I am planning on doing mine before to long since its been sitting in the shop for 7 mo. and has a little bit of overspray on it.

Thanks Josh!

I have about 6K+ posts over on LS2, just been lurking here ever since.

I can travel to you or you can come to me, either way. And my prices are pretty low. I use a full line of Tropicare with a PC. I do not do any wet sanding tho so if that's what your looking for sorry. Just lemme know. I have a 414 SS to do this saturday and two FRC's during the week. I'm pretty open after that. Thanks.

Brian.
