Re: HELP me get the compound crap off my Jeep [pics]

I think i can at this point. The first time I tried, there was just too much caked on. I think Ill try to buff it now.

Should I now use a cleaner liquid wax with the buffer or just straight buff. I also want to wax it. Thoughts?

Re: HELP me get the compound crap off my Jeep [pics]

iuts kinda hard to say since im not there. And I dont want to give you bad advice. When you get it all removed.....look at it under a very bright halogen light and see if you see any buffer marks, swirls etc. If you do.....I would invest in a good DA(I have a porter cable) buffer. Then I would buy some Meguiers m105 and m205 from detailedimage.com(vendor here...so take advantage of the discount) abnd the proper buffing pads. Buy some Meguiers #21 sealant. Then get a good carnuaba as well...p21s is excellent. Follow the directions and instructions at detailedimage.com(they have a how to section) and then top it off with a coat or two of #21 Meguiers and a coat or two of the carnuaba.

Re: HELP me get the compound crap off my Jeep [pics]

Get some corn starch from the grocery store. it's an ultra fine powder and will not scratch, and not only does it remove the wax, it also eliminates swirls. The only bad thing is it can be messy and don't do it if the car still has water in areas.

I put in a container that I can use to sprinkle (think pepper shaker) over the areas, and use a towel and it breaks that down real good...do a same procedure as if you were removing was regular; as in, don't scrub, let the product do the work.

That site is truly amazing. There is such great information on there and WOW I want to buy everything. I think Ill start buying a little at a time and try to build the perfect detailing regimen.

Re: HELP me get the compound crap off my Jeep [pics]

well i saw this late, but you could have sprayed QD on there and it would have came off...

UC- you are not suppose to let this dry, it is a compound as i'm sure you are well aware, orbitals really won't do much as far as removing siwrls/scratches.

you need a porter cable to really remove scratches/swirls from your clear coat.
ultimate compound is find for the WK CC to remove the swirls/scratches. 105 is more aggressive but always start with the least aggressive and work your way up. i have 105 but it collects dust b/c UC worked perfectly for me. UC also dusts less

Re: HELP me get the compound crap off my Jeep [pics]

Irf-orbital buffers are the BEST for removing scratches/swirls...if you know howw to use them! They are 10x faster than the DA polishers

Re: HELP me get the compound crap off my Jeep [pics]

Thanks for the help guys. This site is great. I stayed up till 2am with lights rubbing this stuff off. Woke up this morning and did a round of cleaner wax, followed by 2 application of carnauba wax. I then hit the trim with Back to Black. I must say, it all looks really good. I used the buffer to buff the wax off versus hand buffing it.

I thought thats how it was gonna go the first time around. I didnt realize you cant buff compound off very easily, nor what it really was to begin with. I learn from experience all the time...
