Okay, in general the paint finish on my '91 205 GTi is pretty good.
Since January '03 I've been using :
Meguire's Deep Crystal Paint Cleaner, followed by :
The Deep Crystal Polish, and finishing with :
The Deep Crystal Wax.
Besides a few nicks and bird **** stains, generally the finish has been holding up well....until recently.
Last year I noticed some discolouration in the middle of the bonnet. Using the usual three-step method didn't remove it. Consultation with mates has led me to believe that it is most likely oxidisation.
I was going to try to use a cutter the next time I washed/waxed the car, and was wondering what people's opinions would be.
I've trawled the forums, and see that people either recommend the 3M micro-polishing something or other... or Meguire's Scratch X. People are also talking about clays (which I've never heard of), but from their description they seem to be more suited to 'baked on grime', as opposed to flaws in the paint.
Will a cutter get rid of this oxidisation?
Or will I have to *gulp* look at re-spraying?
