      did my once a year follow up. getting the car ready for VagFair next weekend. meguires m205 on a black foam 3m pad. coat of NXT wax to seal it up. ill throw a layer of Poor boys blue wax on it before we leave for the show next week to add some more depth. only downfall with the poor boys blue is that it doesn't last very long. if i owned a garage and it didnt sit outside all year that would probably change

      Blocked with 1000, followed up with 12-1500. Initial rub was with 3m 6086 follwed with black foam pad with the dark foam polish. After that just hand glaze/polish. BTW, paint is Centari single stage, no clear here.




      I fix $600 paint jobs.

      Having seen, driven in, and I think I actually helped him GET this car, I can agree with you.

      Centari is easily the best single stage paint I've ever used. It gives great results as you well know.

      Hands down the best!! Hard to believe it's 30yo technology. The added bonus is the way my garage smelled for about 8 months.

      I'm such a big fan of the 3m three step compounds, expensive but well worth it.
      Pm me for any and all glass questions and inquires, or any VAG-COM needs.
