    Fixing a bad polishing job

    Main MB dealer did Star Guard paint protection on the car as part of the purchase deal. When I finally uplifted my car, and 2 days later in sunshine, I see all the polisher swirl marks all over the car, not happy, but the dealer did not inspire confidence. I am reluctant to let the same people...

    Polishing lip on alloy wheels.

    Does anyone know the best method for polishing the lip on my alloy wheels. I have a 1997 SL320 R129. The main part of the wheels are what I would call standard finish, the edges however are polished. These are looking a little tired but not that bad. Any ideas would be appreciated.

    Polishing red rear lights?

    I have a couple of rear lights that look terrible. One of them is almost white, looks like it's clouded over. I guess this is caused by UV damage? Where should I start with getting them back to clear red?

    Any suggestions on polishing uncoated mild steel (mirror finished)? There are a few spots of surface rust, so I was thinking of taking a slightly abrasive paste (like brillo) to remove that... but how do I prevent them from coming back? Oil isn't really an option as it leaves a sticky...
