    Ah, love the 7424XP!

    M105 and M205 a two great cutting compounds from Meguiar's. More here.

    For newbies, paint correction is an art. If you dedicate time, a few dollars, and patience you can fix a lot of stuff. Start here to understand what's involved. Read a LOT before you give it a shot.

    You will need a orbiting polisher...suggest the Porter Cable.

    M105 is heavy cutting (like sanding without marks), M205 is lighter cut. Looks great, but for a perfect finish, you will want the finish polish for a machine.

    It will make it like glass. Mercedes Benz uses a green hex pad for all finishing and polishing just for reference...I prefer finishing with a blue hex pad, but if you are doing one spot and not the whole car a green hex pad is best.

    You can YouTube lots of tips!

    That is a work of art, you put a lot of love in to it. You can see your reflection (literally) on the bottom section of the bumper/hood. Really excellent work.

    I'm getting my car inspected today and having a small chip with a very minor ding/dent repaired at the dealer. They have a person come in once a week to do this repair. I will post before and after pics.

    Anxious to see the repair. Got a call and the charge will be $125. They say the people who do this are real experts.

    Good name to have...if you ever see a guy with a oil paint brush at a dealership fixing rock chips...get his number...always good to have!
