– soft rags
– soft towel
– warm water
– automotive wash solvent
– 3-step wax and compound
Start by pouring some of your solvent onto one of the soft rags and gently scrubbing the faded areas. Dry them with the towel.
Fill a large bucket with warm water and use the claybar to scrub the whole area. This will lift off any upper-level stains or blemishes.
Use the compound with the buffer and go over the whole area again. Repeat a couple times for best results. When finished, hand wax to desired gloss.
