    just bought a car, its a 20 year old 230TE, a white one. from a distance it looked like it just needed a wash.. well after washing several times, i think it may need a little more. So i am trying to get a buffer. must i use the megs or the other brands, can I start off with autoglym paint renovator , and then the resin polish and seal it off with a collinite, all with a buffer.

    or for that matter by hand. watch out popeye here i come!

    well I did find my answers, I bought a piece of clay and got to work! the car was filthy, as I ran the clay over the shell the lubricant turned brown, and i'd already washed the car a couple of times.. IT really works, what a difference it makes.
