Sure, whatever you need my fellow ford modder

Menzerna, Prima, Towels, pads (best pads in the world), the best advice, Trim Dream, Aussie Gold, Driven to perfection, Glare and so much more

Remember this though - perfection is a process not a product

Use the products I provide you and others in a process to achieve perfection and keep raising the level of your cars finish higher each year

how hard is it to get water marks out? can you use any sort of polish or would you need to cut it first?

In some cases water marks can be removed with vinegar

If that doesn't work, an abrasive polish is needed to cut them out

Hopefully something between a 2000 and 3000 grit polish
A 600 to 1200 grit leveller however is needed in severe cases

Do you own a machine polisher?
If not your work may be made harder

Can you get me a few photos of these watermarks
I can guarantee that driven marine polish and sealant will give your vehicle complete acid rain water mark protection

A photo taken from above the panel not horizontal would be great in evaluating the damage and what is needed to repair it

this is what happens when you spend the time to remove all the contamination and use a machine with the right technique and tools

do you have anything that will darken all the plastic exterior parts on the E-series? Like the door molds, bumper molds and the side mirror molds? On my car they have faded and gone Grey! :shock:

Also, How long dose it usualy take to do a detail, paint restoration?

Ok cool

Heres another stupid question, is there anything I can do about stone chips? Other than a respray? and what am I looking at for some of that trim dream? :D
