Spent the day wetsanding the hood and polishing the driver's side up to the "centerline" of the hood. I'm very pleased with the color match and to be quite honest, it was pure luck. There are as many shades of black as there are any other color.
The progression of polishes are as follows:
Sand with 600 grit
Sand with 1500 grit
Polish with Meguair's MEDIUM cut scratch remover polish-Yellow Bonnet
Polish with Meguair's FINE cut scratch remover polish-2nd Yellow Bonnet
Polish with Clearcoat compound (degrading type)-White Bonnet
Polish with Amway "Mint Condition Silicone Glaze"Polish*-2nd White Bonnet
Wax with Malco Flash Wax-By Hand
*Discontinued and unable to locate anywhere worldwide! ARGH!!!
Anyway, the results are superior and I'm pleased and proud!
Tomorrow, the passenger side.
