Polyclay was used, and after a 6" by 6" square, the clay looked like this
Rail dust on the hatch needed to be addressed as well
Enjoying the time consuming task of taping the vehicle
Meguiars M105 was used on Lake County Hydrotech Cyan 5.5" and 4" pads. Meguiars M205 was then used on Lake County Hydrotech Tangerine 5.5" and 4" pads. I considered following the Tangerine pads with M205 on a black finishing pad, but the Tangerine pads finished down great.
Here is the obligatory 50/50 on the hatch with just M105.
Due to time and lighting, that was the only shot taken during the correction.
After the finishing polish, all of the tape was removed from the molding and they were polished by hand or with the 4" pad. All paint surfaces were wiped down using 50% IPA until all of the oils were removed from the paint.
Collinite Marque D'Elegance Carnauba Paste Wax #915 was used as the LSP. I found this wax very easy to apply, and fairly easy to remove.
Collinite Metal Wax # 850 was used on the exhaust. The tips were fairly clean to begin with, but Megs APC+ and clay were used to clean them up prior to applying the metal wax.
Doors/Trim - Trim was cleaned with KAIO and protected with Collinite 845 Insulator wax, which does not stain, but gives lasting protection.
