Gentleman and Ladies BEHOLD!

Finally got me SS cleaned up and pics taken with the tint and of course the cleanliness.












This is the pic of the damage to my rear bumper from the concrete poll base incident,i was paying attention when i backed into a parking space and didnt notice the concrete based which is only a foot tall in the middle of the parking spot. Im getting it fixed come summer.I still havent taked out the poll and base but i will.

ah the pole thing sucks... you could get most of it out for a few bucks though

my brother uses this at his shop:

scroll down and look at the european cut.. that shit works more wonders than a hooker with 4 boobs. ONLY USE IT ON THE DAMAGED AREA..

right under it is some stuff called topline or something, it's made to finish off the job form the european cut, but it only works as good as normal wax.. so save the $$$ and just use wax to finish it.

you could probably even take a red permanent marker and color in the deep gashes before you buff it out, that would help a little bit more.

You really think that would restore it to almost new. I might actually try it out.

Selfinfliction, I did not see anything impressive on that site. I suggest the Menzerna polishes. check out http://www.properautocare.com

you're still going to have the physical scratch damage there, the only way to get rid of it is to sand it down and refinish it. but that compound and will get rid of most of it, and it'll be alot cheaper than taking it to a body shop if you can't do the work yourself

there are plenty of good products to use, but EC is the best cutting compound we've used. a normal swirl remover/polish isn't gonna work for what he needs initially. he could prolly finish the job off with menzerna though.
