Hey!!! I'm more of a mechanic type of guy than a body type of guy, so sorry if this sounds a little stupid. Anyway, my kid has an OT car that had been sitting outside for quite a few years. The paint is black and cleaned up pretty good, but the hood is kinda whiteish/chalky looking. I bought a buffer wheel from my neighbor buddy but I don't know what type of compound to use. I think it will turn out OK, I took a little wax on a rag with my finger and rubbed the hell out of one little corner and it started to look better so id just like to try to buff it.
