Default Paint Restoration

Gary stepped up a few months ago and posted a detailed account on the ins and outs of paint restoration. It's amazing how a little experience and some elbow grease can save a surface that looks so lost.

Check it out....

Default Re: Paint Restoration

GREAT Tech article!

I would like add that one other trick to help bring back paint that has been sitting out in a junkyard or under a tree... wash the entire car with a liquid or "Soft Scrub" type cleanser.

I have found that this gets off everything from deeply encrusted dirt to the green mold that grows on a car in the shade of a tree forever. It'll also get off most of the tree sap too, but that takes a lot of elbow grease.

Some of these liquid cleansers have bleach in them, so they really work on a convertable or vinyl top.
