Good results if you put the work in, use the right type for the paint finish though
on 20 January 2016
This version of T cut is made specifically for solid colour paints and as such is a little more aggressive than the metallic version which is suitable also for pearlescent finishes. Don't use this on metallic or pearlescent it could damage the top lacquer coating use the right type for the paint finish on the car.
I don't use this often but it works very well if you follow a few basic guidelines firstly you should always wash the car thoroughly removing any rinsing it off then allow it to dry. A lot of minor marks and scratches can be fixed with this solution except where it's penetrated the paint layer (there are various touch up pens kits with work well for this) polishing does take a bit of work I suggest doing a small area with a larger lint free cloth working on each panel individually. I use a circular motion and buff it off afterwards with a dry cloth for the common swirly type scratches you might need a few attempts but this does take them out. Visibly the difference is quite stark a slightly dull finish can be transformed if you put a bit of time into it. After you have buffed it off then I would apply some proper car wax to protect the finish once it's clean very easy to maintain this look. Red is a colour that is fade prone and this can if used properly bring that colour back quite often but heavily faded oxidised paint might need some spray work.
After a full wax I then use triplewax car wash to keep it up to scratch. I have not tried powered buffers with this but it's a possibility if you have a very dull finish a bit of manual work though isn't a bad idea. Do wax up after you've done this it helps keep that solid colour and makes for a longer lasting finish.
