The Best Car Polishing Tips

04-09-2020

If you want to give your car that special sheen and shine, you have to know how to polish your car the right way. There are plenty of products to choose from and a number of techniques to incorporate to get the best results. Car polishing involves proper observation of your vehicle as well so that you can maximize the effects and let the shine last longer.

Clean It First

You should first clean your vehicle thoroughly by bringing it to a carwash or just washing it yourself. This will get rid of the dirt and dust that can hinder the shine during the polishing. The dirt on the paint will also scratch the paint if you do not clean the car properly. If you are using a mechanical buffer, you might increase the chances of developing blemishes and scratches unless you get your car washed. You might also need to detail the finish of the car. The item you need is a bar of detailing clay that will take out hard to remove particles and substances found on the surface of the car, like tree sap or tar.

Slowly Polish

Start polishing using either your hands or a mechanical buffer. The advantage of using your hands is that you can control the pressure and can go for hard to reach nooks and surfaces on your car’s exterior. The advantage of the mechanical buffer is speed and pressure, which keeps you from getting tired. It is recommended that you begin polishing on 2×2-foot areas each time. Move slowly over the entire car and allow the buffer to function excellently. You need to use overlapping strokes so that the buffer covers more area and you do not miss some important points.

Using the Buffer

The mechanical buffer also gives you the advantage of getting an even-looking polish. You also get the job done at a much faster rate than polishing by hand. Apply the polish initially by putting ample amounts on the buffer pad then spreading some on the finish of the car. Turn the buffer on. Be careful not to put too much polish on the pad or it might by thrown all over the place as the buffer starts to whirl.

The pad has to stay level to ensure that pressure is applied evenly. The polish section also needs to be buffed until everything is clear. Stop just before the polish dries. You need to observe how you will do the process. Certain details like putting the cord over your shoulder will help keep it out of the way and keep it from staying on the car’s finish. When the buffer is running, you need to keep it in contact with the surface of the car then turn it off just before you lift it up.

Final Buffer Tips

The pad should never touch the ground at any time. If you have a single grain of dirt on the buffer, your car can end up with a lot of scratches and blemishes because of the quick and rotating movement. If the buffer lands on the ground, you should either clean it thoroughly or just replace it, regardless of how clean it still might look.
