Very nice job done there!!

I don't have access to Novus here, and I use 3M polishing compounds or Turtle Wax Rubbing Compound. Never used them on acrylic clear tough.

By the way, I was just watching a re-run of Grease here. That's what I call a coincidence!!!

LOL. That was not a rerun. I own it on VHS, DVD and Blue Ray. Love that show. I have to order my Novus in from Micro Mark but what you have will work just as good.

So after seeing your videos, im giving this a try. One problem I ran into ws trying to get the wax off. Hoe do you get it out of all the tiny little creases and nooks and crannies?

Thanks Joe Panini for watching.  I use the back of an exacto blade and run along the door seems tan into nooks and cranny's and scrape them out. After that I use a flat black or a slightly darker main color and mix into a wash. And fill in and hide any left over residue. It also enhances the door panels just like a real car.
