Meguiars G110v2 Polisher

Well, you probably know that I'm a vintage car nut. I went on a bit of a rant when I talked about vintage auto wrecking last year. I'm not going to talk specifically about vintage cars, but I will keep it focused on auto restoration. I want to talk about my new toy. I picked up a Meguiar's G110v2 dual action polisher.

For those of you not into paint correction and restoration, a dual action polisher is used in conjunction with a few other key ingredients, to remove swirls, scratches and other imperfections from paint. You can use it on pretty much any paint with a smooth surface. The Meguiar's G110v2 is designed to be used on vehicle paint. We recently traded in our 2010 Ford Escape for a 2008 Ford Expedition and even though the Expedition was well taken care of, it had a lot of swirl marks and light scratches in the paint. I recently took the polisher to it and after only an hour of work, the entire vehicle was like brand new. Their are a few heavier scratches that will require more attention, but for the most part it's in as good of condition as the Escape was before we traded it in. I'm very impressed!

I guess I have to mention that I actually enjoy cleaning my car. I've always enjoyed washing and waxing a dirty car in order to bring out it's best side. A good professional polisher can really allow you to take your car detailing to the next level. Take a look at the picture to the right for a sample of the before and after a good paint polish.
