cfmistry Posted April 2, 2020 Share Posted April 2, 2020 Hi all, Long-time Optimum user here, first time poster. I am by no means a professional detailer, but have been compounding/polishing/wetsanding/waxing since I was 15 (over 20 years ago) I have a classic Mercedes that I am restoring the paint on. The paint was very heavily oxidied and dried out as it had been sitting for 20 +years. I have brought back a significant amount of luster and shine by impregnating the paint with M#7 oils (I could not find a similar product from OPT!). Anyways I do not have an orbital or DA polisher, because frankly, I've never needed one. I am now into the stages of polishing and sealing the Benz. I am planning on Intensive Polish followed by OCW (both of which I have). I am planning to do the Intensive Polish by hand - has anyone done this before? Will it work? I intentionally chose the more aggressive compound (over Hyper Polish) because I figured by hand would be less aggressive than via orbital. Thoughts? Thanks, Cyrus Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
