Seems Legit... Bought this 1M replica bumper off another user maybe 6 months ago and had a family member pick it up for me. Time to bring her home.

Thx! I took it to my garage and managed to find the interest and energy to polish like one panel every 4 days

DA polisher with medium pads, griots and adams products.

Wow, good for you! My accident repair is scheduled for mid-October (estimate $8,300!), and I'm thinking of having a paint correction and ceramic coating done as soon as I get it back, so I'm shopping around now for recommendations.

Oh man, well mid-october will be here before you know it.
You know how quickly summers pass here.

This guy is downtown local and comes pretty highly recommended.

Hey!

Porter Cable DA 7424.
https://www.portercable.com/product/...orbit-polisher

Chemical guys 6" hook and loop backer
https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Chemical guys orange-medium and blue-light medium pads
https://www.amazon.com/Chemical-Guys...zcF9hdGY&psc=1

Griots fast correcting cream (with orange pad)
https://www.amazon.com/Griots-Garage...zcF9hdGY&psc=1

Megiuars 205 (with blue pad)
This step was a bit extra and not completely necessary in my mind. Plus I found the M205 a bit tough to remove.
https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Adams graphene ceramic coat
https://www.amazon.com/Adams-Advance...1zcF9hdGY&th=1


There's a bit of a technique to doing it, takes some practise.
But easy once you're confident.
The PC7424 is dummy proof though... it will not F up the paint.
And make sure to use ceramic applicator pads.

New to me

Just turned over 32k miles on this sweet little '08 I picked up this week. No mods. First thing I did was have some dings repaired, removed the front plate, spent a little time cleaning the engine bay, and remounted the wheel balance weights. Next I'll bomb home for 700+ miles. And then think about next steps. This little car is a hoot. Cheers all,
