Generally if you polish those older panels they will look more like new and more similar to your new carbon fiber pieces. I would suggest finding a good medium and light cutting polish to use on those other pieces. Here are two great combos:

My favorites
Menzerna PO83 followed by Menzerna PO106FA

Great Value
Poorboy's World SSR 2.5 and SSR 1

Let me know if you have any other questions.

sorry my post was written rather poorly.


I am interested in products to use on the brand new gel coat hood. The remainder of my Jeep is in very good shape. No swirls or anything.

The new hood is not quite as clear as the paint. so I am wondering what you might recommend on the gel coat? as a start and then something with a high UV protectant to keep it from yellowing.

Okay I gotcha. I guess my answer is somewhat the same but I would now just use those polishes I listed on the carbon fiber pieces. The polishes will help make sure the surface is optically clear and shinny. I would continue to polish them at least 1 - 2 times per year to keep them clean and clear.

After you are done I would use a good combination of sealant and wax to protect the carbon fiber and other painted surfaces. I put down a sealant first because they are more durable and follow up with a wax for added protection and that really deep gloss.

Here are two of my favorite combinations:

Chemical Guys Jetseal 109 - sealant
Chemical Guys 50/50 Limited Series Concourse Wax - wax

OR

Blackfire Wet Diamond w/polycharger - sealant
Dodo Juice Wax (pick the right wax based on your paint's color) - wax

Both of these combos provide exceptional results! If you need more advice please let me know!

Quick intro...

Hello all,

My name is Ivan and I will do my best to help out on the forums for the foreseeable future. Greg the owner has been extremely busy keeping up with the growth of Detailed Image (in large thanks to this forum), but didn't want to keep the forums unattended. I'll try to revisit as many threads and messages as possible, but if I miss something I encourage anyone to either post again or send a private message with any inquiries. I am a professional detailer in the Chicagoland area and I have been working with Detailed Image on a variety of projects for well over 5 years now. You can read more about myself as well as some articles I have written over the years on my profile page of the DI Ask-a-Pro Blog. I'm very happy to be getting back into the forum world and hope to assist many of you with any questions on car detailing products or techniques.

Well anyway, enough about me, let's get back on the topic of car detailing!

Ivan @ DI
