How to polish B-Pillars

Post by Briano1234 » Wed Jun 08, 2016 1:03 pm

My B-and A pillars look like garbage, dull not shiny.

I didn't want to use a Back to black, or paint on them so I reverted.

From this:

How did I do that.

Simple.
Elbow Grease and the proper cleaners.

I started with water and wet or dry 2000 grit.
I Sanded the pillar until it shined beneath the water.

Yep when dry it hazed.

Soft rag, and Clear Coat Polish.

Work it, see the shine build. The Nice thing about the polish is that it comes off with water.
dry, re-work till even.

When finished add a light coat of wax to darken it further.

Yes as matter of fact, I have the Luck o'the Irish...everything I touch turns to fertilizer of the bovine variety.

looks good, though I would start with a rubbing compound then polishing compound to refine the surface.
