1994 STS - Paint issue


Recommended Posts

After the car being in the shop for a month and a 1/2, I noticed today the car body has this dusty....almost scratchy type of feel to it if you rub your hand across the finish. Windshield wipers even sound different, it's like theres a layer of dust embedded into the finish now. Ive tried washing it, but no luck so far...any ideas as to how I can restore my finish?

Sounds like you need to "clay" the car. Get the clay & lubricant. Instructions included. Will probably take you less than an hour. Its just amazing how smooth the paint is after claying.

Follow with a good paint cleaner/polisher(Sonus) and wax.

I will agree that a claybar will be pretty good. I personally would get some LIQUID GLASS, but before that I would use a pre-cleaner from either MOTHERS or any other leading brand.

Make sure you use a buffer, or polishing wheel, and do it in the shade, or at night.

"Ditto" with the clay.

She'll feel like glass (the paint that is) when your done.

There is no means of avoiding the final collapse of a boom brought about by credit expansion. The alternative is only whether the crisis should come sooner as the result of a voluntary abandonment of further credit expansion, or later as a final and total catastrophe of the currency system involved. - Ludwig von Mises
