Hi there, I remember my Dad had a 2-stage product back in the seventies (not that I'm implying this is the same), the first stage was a 'cutting' compound which would soften the surface and take out swirls and surface scratches. The second stage was a 'polish' which gave a protective coating and a gloss.

I'm not sure how (if it isn't a colour specific product) that it can restore paintwork that's been scratched down to the primer though.

Also a pity that no mention is made regarding the quantity of product that you are buying - the price seems reasonable, but it could only be 50ml tubes...


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
