Paint Restoration with Rubbing Compound
Paint restoration involves the use of a rubbing compound, followed by a polishing compound. Scratches, spiderwebbing, severe oxidation and water spots can all be quickly removed with a little time and diligence.
Rubbing compounds are also essential in the buffing and smoothing of fresh paint after color sanding. Mothers® Professional Rubbing Compound is body shop proven, and works with your favorite buffer and pads.
Apply a 5 inch ribbon of Rubbing Compound to the pad.
Set the buffer speed to medium / medium high. And using just the weight of the machine, rest the pad on the paint surface.
Start the buffer slowly to avoid slinging.
Work on an area of about two square feet, and overlap your buffing path by about 50% in at least three different directions.
Apply more product as needed in order to keep the working surface wet at all times.
Wipe the area with a clean, damp microfiber towel and inspect the compounded surface, gauging your results by comparing your paint to an untreated area. When the defects are removed, continue on to the next area. When compounding is complete, it's time for Mothers® Professional Finishing Polish.
