Manual Car Polishing
Immediately in the beginning we should mention that manual car polishing can not replace machine car polishing. By manual car polishing we mean manually applying the paste for polishing. And machine is much more complex, and a lot of sandpaper is used. With machine car polish it’s possible to improve much bigger damages on the paint. To be exact scratches, even though deep scratches can’t be fixed with machine polishing.With manual polishing you are making your car shiny as well as removing small scratches such as ones found near handles. It also removes the dust, rust from scratches and also removes a lot of dust that is not possible to remove with normal washing.
Products that we are using for manual car polish should be intended for that. With manual polishing there are more different types of cleaning products. There are products with silicone, wax or metallic paint. They give pretty much the same effect, so use which ever you want.
Before polishing the car should be cleaned. It’s the best to polish on temps from 15 to 20 degrees Celsius. The car and the rag should be dry, all though it doesn’t matter when applying paste. A microfiber, cotton or polishing rag is needed. Most important is that there is nothing that will scratch the paint on the rag. When taking off the polish paste you must use a dry rag.
Begin polishing by adding the polish paste to the rag and rub it in with the rag, and spread it on the car body.
It shouldn’t be a problem if it spreads on the non-painted plastic, but it mustn’t be on the plastic. Painted plastic like the bumpers we are polishing without any problems. Leave the paste to dry for about an hour. When the paste dried we are taking it off with a soft clean rag. Most of it should easily be taking off, maybe where there was more dust it would be a bit harder. Polish paste is taken off in eyes of powder. The result is instantly clear. It’s needed to rub it to take off good.
All the dried applied paste we are taking off, because if we accidentally leave a piece, it is burned into the car and it almost impossible to take it off without damaging the paint.
