    so I went for it earlier ! :clap:
    Tried the wetsanding with 2000 and then with 3000, M105, and autoglym super resin polish after that.
    The results speak for themselves :trampoline:
    It's clear like a sheet of glass.
    What do you think ? :Smile:

    Im interested how this goes, personally i have never wet sanded a panel to polish that i havent painted my self ( you never know how much clear coat was applied before hand but heres my 2 cents if it helps at all, G3 as Andy has mentioned is a product used in alot of car body shops for flat and polish after painting normally after a 1500 and then 2000 very wet flat being extremely careful on any edges, i would then finnish off with a 3M Finness-It another compound designed for very minor cutting, this last one will remove any swirel's caused by the drill you are using, just keep the speed slow buring the paint is as bad as going through the clear coat and both of these will remove layers of clear coat, so be careful not to go too far :Smile:

    Hi there mate,

    Just ruined 2cm of a door edge, but repainted it after that.
    The cleae coat is very thin on those cars so I would recommend using cutting compound and apply some good pressure on the area. I got rid of 95% of the scratches this way...so it's good enough for me.
    You can check my project log to see the restoration of my rear bumper :Smile:.

    Cheers and thanks for the tips ! :Grin:
