Polisher

Steps to take when polishing a panel:

1. Preparing the panel:

  • Sometimes a panel has fine over-spray left from spraying the clear-coat. This needs to be removed by lightly sanding with a fine abrasive paper. All over-spray need to be sanded out up to P1500 grit.
  • The panel should be washed when all spray-finishing defects have been removed. Any dirt particles could cause scratch marks when polishing.
  • Tight curves and ends of the panel should be masked-off to prevent the effects caused by point pressure. The polisher should always be used on flat surfaces.

2. Applying the polishing compound:

  • A five rand coin amount of polishing compound should be applied to the buff. Switch the polisher to it's lowest speed setting.
  • Switch on the polisher and gradually spread the polishing compound over the panel.
  • Keep moving the polisher on the panel to have as little amount of pressure and friction.
  • The polishing compound will remove the scratch marks caused by the P1500 sand paper and it will bring out an impressive gloss finish.
  • Remove the masking from the panels and apply the polishing compound to a microfiber cloth. Hand polish (by moving your hand in a small circular motion) the tight curves and ends in the panels until the same finish is achieved as from the polisher.

3. Wash the panel when finished:

  • Wash the panel after polishing to remove any residue from the polishing compound.
