G'day,

I have an AU2, clear coat is fading in some locations, however, I would like to get it bit more of a mirror finish as some sections is dull, seems to be only good when its wet.

Can anyone recommend what polish to use without screwing up clear coat?

Also, is it best to use an orbital sander / polisher or hand good enough?

Thanks

I use Mguires wet look polish and wax. If your clear is stuffed its time to re paint.
Hand polishing always my preference.

93EB,
Thanks for that info. Clear is stuffed in some places, unfortunately cannot afford a complete respray as yet. If I do, I'll go 2 pack.

Hand polishing, what type of cloth?

I always prefer flanellette cloth otherwise clean micro fibre cloths.
